Apple votes for Blu-ray - will it become the next-gen DVD standard

Posted on Friday, March 11 2005 @ 20:46:52 CET by


With the adoption by many big firms it is almost a certainty that Blu-ray will become the next DVD standard. Yesterday Apple gave its vote for Blu-ray by becoming a board member of the Blu-ray Disc Association.

Many other firms such as Sony, Matsushita, Dell, HP, Walt Disney, Hitachi, LG, Mitsubishi, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, TDK and many more support the Blu-ray standard.


Toshiba, NEC and some other companies support another next-gen DVD format: HD DVD. But as more and more huge companies prefer Blu-ray over HD DVD it's almost sure that HD DVD won't become the next DVD standard.
A spokesman for the BDA said the Blue-ray disc’s capacity will be five times larger than today's DVD’s. A single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold up to 25 gigabytes of data and a double-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold up to 50 gigabytes of data. Current DVDs have a limited capacity of 4.7 gigabytes on single-layer discs and 8.5 gigabytes on dual-layer discs.
