What is Blu-Ray Technology?

Blu- Ray

Blu- Ray technology is the new innovative form of watching TV and movies. The optical storage disk is implemented in cell phone technology, game consoles, and televisions.

Also, in comparison to DVD + R and DVD - R, the blu- ray technology uses a blue- purple laser instead of t he red laser, which runs at a 405 nm to read and write data.

Blu- Ray technology uses a shorter wave frequency rather than that of regular technology, so you can save more on the blu- ray disks. This is due to the use of the blue- purple laser, versus the red laser.

By reducing the wavelength and the speed at which the reader reads the data, you avoid the unwanted optical effects and allows you to view the data with a more precise and detailed picture.

Blu-Ray Reader

Currently over 180 different companies worldwide use blu- ray technology versus conventional technology, you may want to invest in a blu- ray reader or a few of the blu- ray accessories.

Many current movies come in both DVD and Blu- Ray formats. In order to play the blu- ray DVDs to their fullest potential, you will want to purchase a Blu- Ray disk reader. (Personally, I don't know if the Blu- Ray disks play on a regular DVD Player.)

These disk readers produce high quality HD-TV videos with high quality sound and picture quality. You'll definitely watch clear, crisp movies with the highest quality sound. Your movie experience will be improved by a long shot from VCR's and DVD's put together.

Should you go out and buy a Blu- Ray reader? I'd say so, but that doesn't mean that you, personally, would benefit. Yes, blu- ray technology is slowly taking over the world's technology in the sense of movies, video games, and cell phones, but it's up to up to decide if you'll benefit.

Thanks for the tech update Whitney05, Blue-Ray certainly looks like a leap forward.

Nice writing and update. Blu-Ray is the latest development and I am sure it is going to dominate several of the gadgets that we use.

It will be interesting to observe the adoption process. Will this be like the Beta vs VHS war? Beta was clearly superior, but VHS became the standard, and BetaMax became obsolete. I'm curious to see and staying on the sidelines until this plays out a little more.
