The advent of Blu-ray technology has led to the introduction of high capacity storage discs to meet the demand cause by the rapid growth of high definition television (HDTV).
Blu-ray discs get their name from blue laser technology. The shorter wavelength of the laser is the reason it is blue in colour. The blue laser has a wavelength of 405nm compared with the wavelength of 650nm for DVD which utilises red laser technology. The benefit of having a blue laser with a shorter wavelength means it is possible to write smaller data pits and therefore vastly increase the amount of data on the disc.
- Blu-ray recordable media offers three to five times added the storage capacity as compared to regular recordable DVD media
- The 25 GB disc provides you with ample space to store all your data and high-definition multimedia content
- The standard 120mm disc size that has a similar physical dimension as most audio, videos, games and PC software's CD or DVD
