What Is Blu-Ray?

Blu Ray Was Created To Store Large Amounts of High Definition Video And Sound, To Enable Recording, Rewriting And Playback

Blu Ray player gets its name from the type of laser it uses to read and write data from and to the disc, the color of the laser is a hue of blue-violet. Due to the extreme density of these optical discs the data needs to be smaller to fit onto the disc, a blue-violet laser has a shorter wavelength than the normal red lasers used today.

The format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc.
