Bluray discs are the newest and the latest when it comes to optical disc storage. Gone are the days when we had to use DVD?s of CD?s for every kind of storage that we could think of. DVD?s had the disadvantage of only being able to store only about 700 MB of data on the disc, but Bluray discs can store up to 50 GB memory on a single disc.
A Bluray dvd player is a player that not only plays bluray discs but others as well, like the conventional CD?s and DVD?s. As bluray discs are read and written using a different wavelength of rays, the technology used in the bluray dvd player is one that has to be compatible with the new bluray technology as well as the older HD DVD technology. The bluray dvd player has become a must own for many now, and there are many models available for purchase at stores and even online. Prices for bluray dvd players can be a little bit more than what you would dish out for a standard DVD player, but then there is the benefit that when you watch movies on the bluray dvd player, you will be able to enjoy better quality sound and video than experienced ever before. Viewers are now not satisfied with just a normal quality picture. We all want to know we are getting the best value for our money. A Bluray dvd player will give all of us the option of watching the same movies but with much better picture quality, clarity, sound and with the added option of using special features in a better way as well. For example with bluray technology, bluray discs will be capable of holding much more information than before, and so hence a movie could be watched with the added specials in it.
The Bluray dvd player has been released by many companies, all trying to get into the market with the newest technology. Brands like Panasonic, Sony, Philips, LG and Samsung are just some of the brands that have put into the market new DVD players that are compatible not just with bluray discs but with conventional CD?s and DVD?s as well. This backward compatibility is something completely optional, as when the bluray dvd player is being made it is up to the company to decide if to use a BD/DVD/CD compatible optical head or not, but because of the growing popularity of bluray discs, it would be against the best interests of the company to not include this new technology in their products.
