What Is Blu-ray?

In the modern era, Blu-ray Disc has already won the praise of many high-quality video enthusiasts. So what is Blu-ray? Why can Blu-ray bring such a change to digital life? Actually, Blu-ray is a new optical high definition disc format which is developed by a group of media manufactures in 2006. Blu-ray is also called Blu-ray Disc which is commonly known as BD. Compared with current optical disc technologies such as DVD, DVD-RAM which all use a red laser to read and write data, Blu-ray relies on a blue-violet laser which has a shorter wavelength. This feature could enable the disc to pack data more tightly in less space. So Blu-ray can hold up to 25G on a single-layer disc and could provide consumers an unprecedented HD experience with the extra capacity combined with advanced video and audio codecs. In comparison with DVD, Blu-ray could provide a better picture and higher definition.

What Are the Popular Blu-ray Formats?

In most cases, the audio, video and other streams stored on Blu-ray Disc are all based on MPEG transport stream. So usually the popular Blu-ray videos are in the format of MPEG-2. In a specific term, you will find more formats for the Blu-ray Disc Audio and Blu-ray Disc Movie, such as BDAV for audio/video recording, BDMV for movie releases, RREF for recording and editing applications and so on.

Since Blu-ray is so attractive, it is so needed to know more about it. Next I will introduce several powerful Leawo Blu-ray related programs for your further reference. With these Leawo Blu-ray products, you will go further on the way of Blu-ray Disc.
