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 single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 25GB, which can be used to record over 2 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.
