Blu-ray Disc® is the latest and greatest optical disc technology. It might physically look and feel just like a CD or DVD, but Blu-ray Disc can do so much more! Pioneer is one of the companies that helped create this new disc format that will deliver HD content to your home.
Any one who has seen a great HDTV knows that once you start watching TV in HD, you don't want to go back to standard definition programming. Even the DVDs that looked so crisp and clear when they were first introduced in 1996 seem to fade in comparison. Along comes Blu-ray Disc and soon enough you'll be able to get movies and other programs in HD from your local video retailer. Likewise, you'll be able to record HD programming from your cable, satellite or TV antenna to relive the "big game" as many times as you like. And, with a Blu-ray Disc computer drive, you can store up to 50 gigabytes at a time when you back up your data, photos, portable music files and home videos.
A Closer Look
- Blu-ray Disc delivers the capacity for the best possible high definition audio and video quality.
- HDTV provides six times more picture information than standard definition TV so you don't miss a single detail. In order to do that, HDTV requires more bits per second and more gigabytes per disc. So if you want great HDTV, you'll also want a Blu-ray Disc player or recorder to watch movies in HD and to record HDTV programming.
- You'll find Blu-ray Disc hardware from Pioneer and nearly all other consumer electronics companies.
- In addition, the world's largest and best recognized computer companies also support Blu-ray Disc, as well as the most popular video game manufacturers.
- Many major movie studios are planning to release their hottest new titles on Blu-ray Disc as well.
Additional Benefits that come with Blu-ray Disc.
In case the stellar audio and video quality aren't enough to make you run out to see Blu-ray Disc technology for yourself, consider the other benefits of having more storage capacity on a single disc. Instead of a multi-disc set where you have to switch between the movie disc and the bonus features disc, you can get it all on one disc. When DVD was first invented, there was no such thing as a "bonus feature." As soon as those creative types in Hollywood realized the benefits of DVD over VHS tape, they went wild in creating the added content that makes us love DVD. Knowing that they'll have even more room and interactivity with Blu-ray Disc, who knows what they'll come up with next?
To start with, you're likely to get:
- More bonus materials, including some or all in high definition
- More sophisticated interactive features enabled by a
- Blu-ray Disc-Java layer of programming
- Multi-channel and Multi-angle HD video
- Internet Connectivity (some models)
- Pop-up menus without having to leave a movie
- High resolution full color graphics and onscreen buttons
- Prequels and Second Sessions
- Bundled Video Games
- And more…
