Blue Ray Is... A Blue Ray DVD is one of the 2 formats that are currently on the market, that are able to play a Movie in High Definition 1080p. The other format is HD D…VD. At the time I am posting this answer, to the best of my knowledge, there is only one maker of a HD DVD player that will play both formats, other wise you have to get a player that will only play Blue Ray, or HD DVD. I do know if only one format will emerge as the only one to be a standard, but if you were around when VCR came out they came out with 2 formats, Betamax, and VHS. When the smoke cleared VHS had managed to push out Betamax in the home market, despite the fact that Betamax was a better format, and was the format of choice for TV broadcasters for many years. shorter version more HI Def pictures and voice thunxxx....
Blu ray DVD uses a lower wavelength scanning laser than standard DVD players, which permits more picture information to be encoded on each Blu ray DVD disk. Basically: it is… a higher-quality DVD image.
Mostly, blu ray players are complitable with dvd , so you could player dvd with a blu ray player.
yea its just a more new generation DVD It is the size of a DVD, but it is able to contain many times the information as on a DVD and it is not a DVD. It will not play on a DV…D player.
Yes it Comes in Widescreen and in HD unlike othe movies.
First, Blu-Rays are not DVDs. People should not get the two mixed up. Blu-Ray discs will only play on Blu-Ray players and those will only work on HDTVs. Blu-Ray players can pl…ay DVDs, but DVD players are not compatible with Blu-Ray
In so much as it carries Digital Video, yes - it's a Digital Video Disc. It's name - "Blu-Ray" - is a reference to the difference from 'regular' DVDs, though. On a digital c…ompact disc, information is stored as 'groves' (or 'gaps') and 'valleys' (or 'hills'), etched in a layer in the disc using a laser (a type of light). This information is read back from the disc by shining a laser at it and seeing how it reflects (the 'groves' reflect differently from the 'valleys'). Now, DVD (and HD-DVD) use a red laser, 650 nanometers in wavelength (as opposed to CDs, which use 780 nanometers). As Wikipedia puts it, "This permits a smaller pit to be etched on the media surface compared to CDs (0.74 micrometers for DVD versus 1.6 micrometers for CD), allowing for a DVD's increased storage capacity.". Blu-Ray DVD uses a yet shorter wavelength of 405 nanometers, resulting in its laser's visible light crossing into the blue spectrum (as the name implies), rather than red. But, the technology, for the most part, remains the same.
It's a drive that can play Blu-ray discs and standard DVD discs. Most DVD drives can only play standard DVDs-they can not play Blu-ray discs. All Blu-ray drives can play stand…ard DVDs, unless the DVD is not a region recognized by the Blu-ray player.
They're not the same. Blu-Ray is in HD and holds 5 times more data than a DVD can hold. But Blu-Ray players can play DVDs
i think that you will find that this site answers your question in much detail :)
No it cannot. Dvd are a different format than a blue ray DVD
In DVD Players
