A new era in high definition recordable media is here.
Expected to revolutionize data and high-definition video storage, the Blu-ray disc provides for high-capacity data recording and duplication of up to 50GB a disc. The CD Dimensions brand and the Microboards Technology CopyWriter Blu-ray BD-R duplicator towers offer BD-R/BD-RE and DVD-R/+R recording.
Blu-ray Tower duplicators are ideal for making small or large quantities of the same master BD-ROM, BD-R,BD-RE or DVD very quickly. Any printing on the Blu-ray disc or DVDs cannot be accomplished with a tower duplicator, and instead must be done on a separator printer.
A Blu-ray Disc (also called BD) is a high-density optical disc format for the storage of digital media, including high-definition video. The name Blu-ray Disc™ is derived from the blue-violet laser used to read and write this type of disc. Because of its shorter wavelength (405 nm), substantially more data can be stored on a Blu-ray Disc than on the DVD format, which uses a red, 650 nm laser. A Blu-ray Disc can store 25 GB on each layer, as opposed to a DVD's 4.7 GB. At 2X burn speeds it takes about 45 minutes to burn 25 GB of data.
- About 9 hours of high-definition (HD) video can be stored on a 50 GB disc.
- About 23 hours of standard-definition (SD) video can be stored on a 50 GB disc.
- On average, a single-layer disc can hold a High Definition feature of 135 minutes using MPEG-2, with additional room for 2 hours of bonus material in standard definition quality. A dual layer disc will extend this number up to 3 hours in HD quality and 9 hours of SD bonus material.
