  • Blu-ray History:

    In the 1990s, DVD movies were produced and by the year 2000 they quickly became the major home video format. The problem was storage capacity. With DVDs only able to store 4.7GB of data, a new media was needed to hold HD content.

    The Blu-ray Disc format was developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), a group of leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers, with more than 180 member companies from all over the world including Sony, Samsung, and Sharp.

    Blu-ray technology is more expensive to produce than DVDs. As prices come down, more households will be able to afford a Blu-ray player and enjoy HD Digital TV at its best!

    One of the most highly publicized disc players is Sony's Playstation 3. Blu-ray got a boost in sales with the PS3. Kids young and old love their video games and watching Blu-ray movies in HD at its best.

    If you have Blu-ray, you’ll need to know about HDMI Cables which delivers uncompressed HD video and multichannel digital audio signals through a single cable connecting compatible components, producing the best Blu-ray Disc experience possible.

    If you are looking for a brand new exciting movie experience, then you should consider Blu-ray players and movies.
