Blu-ray Discs can store 25 GB (single layer) or 50 GB (dual layer) on a single sided disc - about 5 to 10 times the capacity of a DVD. Blu-ray Discs also support the highest quality HD video available in the industry - Large capacity means no compromise on video quality. Furthermore, a Blu-ray Disc has the same familiar size and look as a DVD.
*The following Blu-ray Disc features are disc dependant and will vary. Appearance and navigation of features will also vary from disc to disc. Not all discs will have the features described below.
The BD-ROM format supports three highly advanced video codecs, including AVC, VC-1, and MPEG-2.

For High-Definition Playback
To view high-defi nition contents on a Blu-ray Disc, an HDTV (High Defi nition Television) is required.
Some Blu-ray Discs may require using the player's HDMI OUT to view high-defi nition content. The ability to view high-defi nition content on Blu-ray Discs may be limited depending on the resolution of your TV.
Two individual, full HD resolution (1920x1080) video layers are available, on top of the HD video layer.
One layer is assigned to video-related graphics (like subtitles), and the other layer is assigned to interactive elements, such as buttons or menus. Various wipes, fades and scroll effects may be available on both layers.
