Journey Fom Floppy Disc to Blu - Ray Disc ( Bd )

By: Nishit Gandhi

Just while a Decade back, people were using the FLOPPY DISC, things they found were going simple for small data transfers and storage of small files ( max of 1.44 MB). Then came the ERA of Compact Disc ( CD's ). With the technology of CD ( 700 MB) , there was great turning point to all major industries , large data transfer and storage was possible, but it still lacked the high defination (HD) clarity for audio and Video. Then moving still up in the graph we had powerful turning point towards DVDs ( 4.7 GB).

Here high definition was possible but still some or the other factor lacked for extreme high definition Videos.

But with the technology of BLU-RAY disc, all was possible. Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD), is the name of a next-generation optical disc format jointly developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), a group of the world's leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers (including Apple, Dell, Hitachi, HP, JVC, LG, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, TDK and Thomson). The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data. 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. This extra capacity combined with the use of advanced video and audio codecs will offer consumers an unprecedented HD experience.
