What is BluRay?

Blu-ray Disc (also known as BD or Blu-ray) is an optical disc storage medium designed to supersede the standard DVD format. Its main uses are for storing high-definition video, PlayStation 3 video games, and other data, with up to 25 GB per single layered, and 50 GB per dual layered disc.

What can a Blu-ray can do that a DVD can’t?

First of all, a Blu-ray disc can hold much more video than a DVD, and that video will be of significantly higher quality. In addition, the Blu-ray’s HD specification provides for many features not available on a DVD. The most important difference is that Blu-ray players can play full HD video, in either 1080i or 720p (Blu-ray player model dependant) via the Blu-ray player’s HDMI or DVI port. DVD’s are limited to playing either PAL or NTSC video with a maximum video image size of 720×576, whereas the Blu-ray HD image is 1920×1080.

How much does Blu-ray cost?

Blu-ray authoring depends very much on the size and format of the video you have to start with, but the following costing serves as a guideline for Blu-ray authoring and burning:

Encoding Blu-ray mpeg off your existing video file (Quicktime, AVI) = R950 per 30 minutes of video

Authoring DVD (includes menu and navigation) = R550 per hour (depending on how complex your required menu is). Minimum of 1 hour

Blu-ray discs = R100 for single layer (25GB) and R450 for dual layer (50GB)
