It will take you approximately 90 minutes to record a 50GB Blu-ray disc at 2x, this is similar to recording 10 DVD-R discs at 8x, one after the other, however many of the latest blu-ray burners will burn at 8x drastically reducing the recording time. For the professional finish we supply genuine Amaray Blu-ray cases.

50 GB Blu-ray media recording compatibility
In terms of recording compatibility, 50 GB Dual Layer Blu-ray media is compatible with Blu-ray recording hardware only, while playback can be accessed through your Blu-ray player or recording hardware. So look to Verbatim, the media of choice, for capturing your high definition video.
Blu-ray recordable disc is the next-generation optical disc format that was developed to enable recording and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing very large amounts of data for 100 year plus storage. A dual-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 50GB, which can be used to record over 4 hours of HDTV or a blu-ray movie. Blu-ray as the name might suggest uses a blue-violet laser to read and write data while current optical disc technologies such as DVD use a red laser. The shorter wavelengths of the Blu-ray technology make it possible to record more data on the same space as a traditional DVD-R disc. The Verbatim Blu-ray discs in particular are safeguarded by Verbatim’s super hard coat which protects against everyday wear and tear. With the rapid growth of High definition television and video, Blu-ray recordable will meet the consumer demand for recording HD programming and is expected to replace VCRs and DVD recorders over the coming years.
