The Difference Between Blu-ray and DVD

With all of the new technology coming out all of the time, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest and greatest, and what the newest generation offers. Blu-ray is the latest available optical storage medium, similar to a DVD. The difference is that it uses a different laser wavelength (blue) instead of the red DVD laser. Blu-ray discs can hold 50gb on a dual layer disc, which is over 10 times the storage capacity of a standard DVD. Due to the larger storage space on these discs, Hollywood movie studios are able to release films in high definition complete with fully interactive menus, network integration, and all sorts of interactive bonus features.

High definition televisions are quickly becoming more and more common throughout the country, which only further intensifies the Blu-ray market. Another useful feature with Blu-ray players is that they are backwards compatible with DVDs, so your can still fully enjoy your whole movie collection on one unit. In fact, most Blu-ray units come with DVD upscaling, to make your DVDs look even better on your high definition television. In addition to Blu-ray movies, you can also use Blu-ray discs as a storage medium to store digital photos, videos or audio. They are perfect for home video to DVD, slide scanning or film to DVD projects. Thanks to the greatly enhanced HD video and audio quality as well as the advanced interactivity and networking features, Blu-ray is a huge step forward in the home video experience.

Astounding High-definition Quality

High definition (high-def) is the highest resolution offered within the digital television category. High-def content is also more often displayed in wide-screen, which is similar to how it looks in the movie theater. Between standard definition and high definition, there’s a range of resolutions, but the easiest way to explain the difference is that a high-def image holds more information than a standard-definition image. This means that high-def can be up to six times clearer than what you get on DVD, which lends itself to being shown on larger screens.

For more information about high-definition watch this video.


Standard-Definition Home Movies on Blu-ray

Videos and movies recorded in the past are all in standard-definition, most Blu-ray and some DVD players have a form of up-scaling to increase the size of the image. This does not make the footage high-definition, it simply helps stretch the image for high-definition televisions. The benefit of standard definition video on Blu-ray disc is the massive amount of storage available. We can put up to 11 hours of video on to just one Blu-ray disc. This means that you can take your collection of dozens of tapes down to just a few discs.

A Word on Compatibility

Blu-ray is the newest available format for home theatres. While Blu-ray discs do comply with several standards, not all Blu-ray players are compatible with burned BD-R discs. Most new Blu-ray players and the popular PlayStation 3 (PS3)  will play BD-R discs with no issues. Check your home Blu-ray player for BD-R compatibility to make sure you can watch your home movies on them. If you are having trouble finding out if your player is compatible feel free to call us.
