ARe­mem­ber the video home sys­tem, bet­ter known as VHS? Back in a re­cent-enough time, every­body used to play movies in their VCRs, at least un­til the tran­si­tion to the DVD. Right un­til the 1990s – when the home tele­vi­sion-record­ing mar­ket be­gan its tran­si­tion to dig­i­tal video-based record­ing – the VCR was quite the main­stay in our liv­ing rooms. And now, since tech­nol­ogy is the least com­pla­cent thing in the world, we have a suc­ces­sor to the DVD – in the Blu-ray disk (BD). With the in­tro­duc­tion of high-def­i­ni­tion (HD) video, there was sim­ply too much in­for­ma­tion for the DVD to han­dle. More­over, apart from the ex­pan­sive stor­age ca­pac­ity, the pic­ture qual­ity of a Blu-ray disk is top­notch. On the face of it, the ad­van­tages straight­away negate the pinch­ing fac­tors like the higher cost for buy­ing equip­ment and me­dia. high-den­sity op­ti­cal disk for­mat, the Blu-ray disk was de­vel­oped to en­able record­ing, rewrit­ing and play­back of high-def­i­ni­tion video, as well as stor­ing the large amounts of data that HD video cre­ated. A sin­gle Blu-ray disk can hold up to 50GB (over 10 times the ca­pac­ity of a sin­gle­lay­ered DVD) of in­for­ma­tion in­clud­ing up to 1080p high-def­i­ni­tion video, high-def­i­ni­tion pho­tos, mu­sic, and more.
