Have you every wondered to take the back up of your favorite movies, videos or audio or any data into a single disk. Though DVDs came up with the possible solution with 2 to 4 GB of disk space but its never easy to have all the series or parts of those movie like (Part I, Part II, Part III and so on…) into a single disk.
The blu ray disk is the single point solution to all the problems. Blu-ray Disc (also known as Blu-ray or BD) is an optical disc storage media format. Its main uses are high-definition video and data storage. The disc has the same dimensions as a standard DVD or CD. It can also be played in DVD Players.
The name Blu-ray Disc is derived from the blue-violet laser used to read and write this type of disc. Because of its shorter wavelength (405 nm), substantially more data can be stored on a Blu-ray Disc than on the DVD format, which uses a red (650 nm) laser. A dual layer Blu-ray Disc can store 50 GB, almost six times the capacity of a dual layer DVD.
The blu ray player is player is the one which helps you to play this blu ray disk. If the technology of blu ray suits you fine you should seriously consider to buy blu ray player. As blu ray is the patented technology of Sony, so its Play Station 3 is the most recommended for playing a blu ray disk.
