Is there an avatar 3D DVD non blu- ray?
Answer . Single-layered DVDs hold around 4.7gigabytes, with Dual-layered DVDs holding around 8.5gb\n. \nA single layered Blu-Ray disc can hold up to 25gb, with a dual-layer holding up to 50gb.\n. \nThere is also a Holographic Versatile Disc (HVD) in the research stage that, if it works, will be… able to hold up to 3.9 terabytes.

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 DVD. 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 pla…y 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.
All Blu-Ray players feature backward compatibility with DVD's,which means that you can play a standard DVD in a Blu-Ray player. However, the reverse is not true. You cannot play a Blu-ray disc ina standard DVD player.
It was released in early june. It was cloudy with a chance of meatballs. More have been released since then.
The answer to this is no. Blu-ray may only be played by Blu-ray players due to the fact that Blu-ray DVDs were made with blue and violet rays, hence the name blu-ray, and can only read using those Blue and rays. Absolutely. All discs of every type can be read on all disc reading machines. In a short… answer, No. Blu-Ray is a relatively new technology that compresses much more information (over 50GB, or gigabytes) onto a disc that is physically the same size as a standard DVD. In comparison, a DVD holds a little over 8 GB of data on a dual-layer disc. The difference is the density at which the information is recorded, and the number of layers used. A DVD player doesn't have the ability to focus on the different layers, and the information is encoded differently on Blu-Ray than it is on a DVD. No. Blu-Rays are not DVDs and they will only work on Blu-Ray players. (MORE)
Mostly, blu ray players are complitable with dvd , so you could player dvd with a blu ray player.
Sorry, but no. Not unless the HD-DVD player has a Blu-Ray logo on it. Blu-Ray and HD-DVD are different competing formats, like VHS and Betamax. Unfortunately, it looks like the HD-DVD format is going the way of Betamax -- WalMart recently announced that they will no longer carry HD-DVD.
no. high definition (HD) DVDs are not playable on regular or blue ray DVD players, due to the fact that HD DVDs are designed differently. therefore, they need to be played on a HD DVD compatible player. however, there are some brands of HD DVD players that will allow standard DVDs to be played, whic…h means that you will experience HD- like playback. it is my understanding that these players are known as up converting DVD players. finally, it is my understanding that you can only play blue ray discs on a blue ray DVD player.

Blu-Ray is for HDTVs. They can hold up to 5 times more data than a DVD can hold. Blu-Rays are also more resistant to scratches and harder to break than DVDs
No. Blu-Ray discs are not DVDs and they will only work on Blu-Ray players. But there are portable Blu-Ray players
No, you need a BlueRay player, or an XBox 360 - it has one built in.
There have been just one or two high definition DVD players capable of playing HD DVD and Bluray discs. If you have one, it will make it very obvious on the front panel that it will play both. It is unlikely that you own one of these, so the HD DVD player in question almost certainly plays HD DVDs a…nd not Bluray. It will also play standard definition DVDs as well of course but if the movie is on Bluray, you're out of luck. . For clarity, HD DVD was the competitor to Bluray in the high definition disc war that ended in 2008. Both formats were capable of replaying high definition video and both were compatible with standard definition DVDs. Bluray was the victor in the war and the fatally wounded HD DVD players were withdrawn from the shelves quietly and without fuss. They were sold at 90% discounts in outlet stores. Sadly, those people who were tempted to buy one have since found that their collection of 4 HD DVD movies is never to be expanded. . Quick follow up to this post. There are a huge amount of HD DVD movies to be found at Amazon.com I was there last week looking for some new BlueRay movies and found a ton of HD DVD movies. If you have a HD DVD player and are looking for movies to expand your library try here just copy and paste to your browser if it does not come out as a link. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Ddvd&field-keywords=hd+dvd&x=0&y=0 (MORE)
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 DVD player.
Blu-Ray discs can hold up to a maximum of 50 GB of data and that is 5 times more data than a DVD can hold
Current 3D content is available on broadcast channels and on Bluray discs. The content is HD regardless of the source so there will be no discernible difference between Bluray and broadcast 3D signals.
No. Blu-Ray discs will only work on Blu-Ray players. But DVDs can play on Blu-Ray players due to the backwards compatibility enabled
It sounds like your player may be having some issues. Try these steps to fix it: 1. Unplug your Blu-ray player for 5 minutes, then plug it back in and try again. 2. Call the manufacturer of the player to ensure you have the latest updates. 3. Call the manufacturer of the player for service.
According to James Cameron the Official Avatar DVD Release date is set for April 22, 2010 - Which is also Earth Day. This is for the DVD and Blu-Ray version.

For a few reasons: Blu-Rays hold up to 5 times more data than a standard DVD. Blu-Rays have better sound and picture quality. And Blu-Rays have a special hardcoat layer on the bottom of the disc that makes it more resistable to scratches than a regular DVD.
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 play DVDs, but DVD players are not compatible with Blu-Ray
No. Blu-Ray discs can only be burned (written) using a Blu-Ray burner . A DVD burner will not be able to write Blu-Ray discs, because their lasers are different. A DVD player will not even be able to read Blu-Ray discs if it isn't equipped with a second laser (or some wavelength-bending device) …to do so. (MORE)
First, HD DVDs have been permanently discontinued. Second, Blu-Ray players will NOT work on old TVs. They will only work on HDTVs
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 compact 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. (MORE)
Bluray players are backwards compatible so they will play standard DVDs as well as Bluray discs. Note that although the DVD is being played by a Bluray player, it does not make it HD quality. Some bluray players will up-convert the standard definition image from 480 or 576 lines up to 1080 lines bu…t although the format is HD, the image quality still remains standard definition. (MORE)
Sort of. The 3D is definitely not the one that requires red and blue cellophane glasses
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 standard 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 :)
The software that enable you to watch your Blu Ray dvds...Blu ray DVD players are mostly only for HD
3d is 3d. its just 2 images one for left and one for right. RealD is one system for taking the 2 images and polarising them to block the opposite eye. Most home theatre systems have been using XpandD aka flicker or shutter, which uses a synchronised LCD shutter in the glasses to block opposite eye. …JVC developed a polarising system for the home that uses alternating rows of polarising filters in the TV screen itself. this system allows you to use RealD glasses at home. however it also reduces the image quality in half, making your 1080 into 540 or standard def.

No. But DVDs can be played by a Blu-Ray player thanks to its backwards compatibility feature
No. Nothing touches the disc, only laser light. If left in the machine trying to play it, it may make noises as the sled tries to track the damaged disc, but this would only cause normal wear to the moving parts, same as an undamaged disc.
No. It has to be a blueray machine. Blueray machines are backward compatible, you can play standard DVDs and CDs. They are not forward compatible. The laser used in blueray machines, is significantly different. Normal DVD machines cannot see the blueray disk.
No. They will only play on Blu-Ray players, blu-ray enabled laptops, blu-ray enabled PC's and Playstation 3's
It is quite likely that the Bluray player is faulty. A badly aligned laser may still be able to read the larger DVD tracks but not the much finer tracks on a Bluray disc. Try some different Bluray discs. If none of them work, it might be time to get the player repaired or replaced.
Blu-Ray discs will only play on Blu-Ray players. But regular DVDs can be played on a Blu-Ray player due to the backwards compatibility feature
Blu-Ray DVDs are for HD TVs and require a Blu-Ray player or a PS3. The sound is improved and the crispness of the picture (graphics) is noticeably improved.
Is any blu-ray movie could be played on a blu- ray player which is not 3d/
Usually yes, not because "blu-ray" players are inherently capable of reading standard DVDs, but because the manufacturer has included standard DVD reading hardware in addition to the "blu-ray" hardware. The reason for this is the perception that most people would be much less interested in buyi…ng a blu-ray player if it would not be able to also play their existing DVD library, since they probably have a significant investment in that library and would not want to immediately throw it out and buy new blu-ray copies (assuming they were even available).

There is actually no one model that can be considered "the best". Here's why: All Bluray players are built to take data from a disc, format it into a signal and send it out on an HDMI interface. The whole process is predictable and the output data from one model will be the same as the other. Don't… expect one to deliver better images from another because it won't. So, the differences are down to other features. They will include the hand control operation, integration with other devices, Internet comnectivity and so on. As every model will have a different mix of features, the best model is the one that has the features you need. That very same model may not have features someone else needs. So, make a list of the features you want to see on your new player, compare that list to the models on the market and when you find a match, there is the best player. (MORE)
You can find these in any place where they sell standard DVDs. Many DVDs now come with a blu-ray disc. However, be aware that you need a blu-ray player to play blu-ray discs.
Yes. The only difference between a regular Blu-Ray and a 3D Blu-Ray is that the 3D Blu-Ray ALWAYS plays the movie in 3D
A DVD player cannot play a BluRay disc. A BluRay player can play both BluRay discs and DVDs.
Yes due to the backwards compatibility installed in every Blu-Ray player and PlayStation 3 (which also uses the Blu-Ray disc format)
Blu-ray will give better quality but these are much more expensive. Most DVD players however give quality for good price. It really depends on much you want to spend.
Yes, as long as you have a 3D Vizio TV and a 3D blu-ray player.
