VDC were the first UK Blu-ray manufacturers, and have worked with many film companies and individual film producers to provide the best Blu-ray services.
BD (Blu-ray), is a digital optical storage format, capable of storing several hours of video in high-definition (HDTV 720p and 1080p). The blue laser used for ‘Blu-ray’ discs, allows information to be stored at a much greater density than the regular DVDs which uses the longer-wavelength red laser.
The Blu-ray disc is most commonly used for video material such as feature films, or for physical distribution of video games for consoles such as the Playstation and Xbox.
The plastic disc is 120 millimetres (4.7 in) in diameter and 1.2 millimetres (0.047 in) thick, the same size as DVDs and CDs. Conventional or pre-BD-XL Blu-ray Discs contain 25 GB per layer, with dual-layer discs (50 GB) being the industry standard for feature-length video discs. Triple-layer discs (100 GB) and quadruple-layer discs (128 GB) are available for BD-XL re-writer drives.
High-definition (HD) video may be stored on Blu-ray Discs with up to 1920×1080 pixel resolution, at 24 progressive or 50/60 interlaced frames per second. DVD-Video discs were limited to a maximum resolution of 480i (NTSC, 720×480 pixels) or 576i (PAL, 720×576 pixels). Besides these hardware specifications, Blu-ray is associated with a set of multimedia formats.
Blu-ray is an optical disc format used to store high-definition video as well as games. These discs are the next generation of DVDs, delivering Full HD picture quality, and because they look and feel like standard DVDs, they’re just as easy to use. Perhaps most importantly the menus are similar on both formats, even after we have conducted our Blu-ray replication. So whilst you are getting to experience your video through an elevated level of quality, the ease of access is just as familiar.
High Quality Blu-ray Replication
Our process produces the best possible picture quality for an HDTV—even better than HD cable or satellite broadcasts, and is really the only way to get 3D content. Their ability to capture the image so well stems down to the fact that these Blu-rays have up to seven times the resolution of DVDs. Simply put, everything looks sharper—details such as skin and hair, patterns on clothing and even faces of people in the background can appear razor sharp. Also, Blu-ray discs provide far more accurate colour, which makes for richer, more life-like pictures that feel almost three-dimensional – even without the use of 3D technology!
Large Capacity Blu-ray Discs
The high storage capacity of the Blu-ray disc format enables optimum audio and video High-Definition quality. Equally, it also offers the ability to store bonus material, such as additional trailers, as well as interviews with directors and stars.
The Blu-ray disc will initially be the only method of delivering Full HD (1080p) 3D content to the home. We understand that through opting for our Blu-ray replication process, you are committing your content to be captured in its highest possible quality, which is why we strive to take every care to deliver the best quality product available.
