Blu-ray Disc™

Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) is the name of a next-generation optical disc format. The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data. The format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc. This extra capacity combined with the use of advanced video and audio codecs will offer consumers an unprecedented HD experience.

Dolby® TrueHD

Dolby® TrueHD

Dolby® TrueHD is Dolby’s next-generation lossless technology developed for high definition disc based media. Dolby® TrueHD delivers tantalizing sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, unlocking the true high definition entertainment experience on next generation discs. When coupled with high definition video, Dolby® TrueHD offers an unprecedented home theater experience that lets you enjoy sound as stunning as the high definition picture.

DTS Digital Surround™ was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with a multichannel digital sound track.

AVCHD is a new format (standard) for high definition video cameras that can be used to record and play high resolution HD images.

HDMI®

HDMI®

HDMI® (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first and only industry supported, uncompressed, all digital audio/video interface. With the ability to deliver crystal clear, all digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI® dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest quality home theater experience. HDMI® can provide an interface between most audio/video sources, such as a set-top box, Blu-ray Disc™ player, DVD player or AV receiver and a video monitor, such as a high definition television (HDTV) over a single cable. Depending on the model of product, HDMI® can support standard, enhanced or high definition video, plus multichannel digital audio on a single cable. It can support all currently available compressed audio formats (such as Dolby® Digital and DTS) and most newer HDMI® devices can support lossless digital audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. (View the specifications of each product for details on HDMI® compatibility.)
