Blu-ray offers the best audio
and video quality possible in the home. 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

With lossless audio—that is,
audio bit-for-bit identical to the studio master—you experience exactly what
the artist intended. Dolby® TrueHD delivers 100 percent lossless audio for
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.
Many producers and directors
choose Dolby TrueHD for their Blu-ray Disc releases, and most Blu-ray players
feature built-in Dolby TrueHD decoding. Dolby TrueHD decoding can also deliver
lossless PCM from Blu-ray soundtracks to downstream devices.
Dolby Digital Plus™
represents another important audio technology for Blu-ray. It 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.
Dolby technologies elevate
the performance and capabilities of Blu-ray. Look for a Blu-ray Disc player
from one of these manufacturers for the best audio possible.
Wi-Fi and 3D support are just two of the many features available in Sony®
Blu-ray Disc players.
