The next generation of high-density optical disc that allows the storage of digital media, including high-definition (HD) video.
A single layer blu-ray disc can store up to 25GB, which is over 25 times more than a DVD single layer disc which can only hold 4.7GB. A dual layer blu-ray disc is able to hold up to 50GB (9 hours of HD video, 23 hours of standard-definition video), almost 6 times the size of a dual layer DVD disc which can only hold 8.5GB.
Now with its special ‘Durabis’ polymer coating blu-ray discs offer substantial scratch resistance. This coating allows the user to clean safely using only a tissue.
Blu-ray is currently supported by over 180 of the world’s leading consumer electronic, computers, media, video game and music companies.
