Blu-ray is the name of a next-generation optical disc format and is the ultimate way to watch films and TV in high definition quality. With superior surround sound, vivid colour and incredibly sharp picture Blu-ray discs bring your favourite movies to life.

They carry up to 5 times more information than the standard DVD which means Blu-ray can offer more interactive features and bonus content. The discs are highly durable, resistant to dirt and scratches.
 
The Big Picture

Blu-ray Discs and Players provide 6 times better picture quality than DVD with a resolution display of 1080p. It allows colours to be shown more accurately, the textures richer and the clarity sharper.
 
Enhanced Sound

As Blu-ray has up to 7.1 channels of high definition surround sound, the audio is deeper and far more powerful with any form of surround-sound set-up.
 
Durability

Blu-ray is protected by a hard-coat layer that resists scratches, dust, and fingerprints that cause discs to skip and freeze.

Storage Capacity

Blu-ray discs store up to 50GB of information. As the storage capacity is higher than standard DVDs, the picture has much more detail, better quality sound and more room for bonus features and content.

Why is the format called Blu-Ray?

The name Blu-ray comes from the blue lasers that read and write data from the discs.

Will Blu-ray be backwards compatible with DVD?
