Dolby technologies enhance the Blu-ray experience with 100 percent lossless audio and support for special interactive features.
Blu-ray Disc™ provides the most
intense visual brilliance and audio definition possible for your home theater. While
a Blu-ray Disc may resemble a traditional DVD, it contains many times the data
and offers capabilities all its own, including:
Developed jointly by leaders
in consumer electronics and entertainment, the Blu-ray Disc first appeared as a
prototype in 2000. A few years later the first consumer Blu-ray Disc players
went on sale. To read data from a disc, these devices use a blue laser, not the
red laser of DVD players, and it's this distinction that inspired the Blu-ray
But the difference that
matters most to your enjoyment of a movie or a concert video is performance,
and that's where Blu-ray™ really shines. No other format can equal the video
quality of a Blu-ray Disc. At 1920 × 1080 pixels, it offers higher video
resolution than DVD and even HDTV. The audio quality of Blu-ray also sets it
When you use a Blu-ray player and discs with Dolby Audio, you'll get the richest, clearest, most powerful sound on Blu-ray. Dolby Audio™ is a set of technologies that use advanced audio formatting and signal processing to deliver enhanced sound.
Dolby® TrueHD, part of Dolby Audio, delivers 100 percent lossless audio for Blu-ray Disc, so you hear every nuance, every detail of the original mix, with complete accuracy. And because Dolby TrueHD supports up to 7.1 channels, this lossless audio surrounds you for even greater realism.
Dolby Digital Plus™, also part of Dolby Audio, supports interactive features like BonusView™, an embedded picture-in-picture option that mixes secondary audio and video content, and BD-Live™, which displays content streamed from the Internet.
And if you use your Internet-connected Blu-ray player to access services like Netflix® and Vudu®, Dolby Digital Plus can decode their premium multichannel audio.
