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.
