Blu-ray Is Superior To HD-DVD In Terms Of Capacity

 
There has been much hype about the “war” between Sony’s Blu-RayBlu-ray Is Superior To HD-DVD In Terms Of Capacity
 
technology and the HD-DVD technology of Toshiba.
 
Both are high definition digital video disc formats but then factor

technology and the HD-DVD technology of Toshiba.

Since the formats appeared in the market space (which the did

almost ), both have been a though sell to consumers because so far
 
it hasn’t been clear which one will come out on top on the format war.
 
both the Sony Company and that of Toshiba promotes their own
 
standard through both advertising and through partnerships.
 
Repeating the Beta-max vs. VHS war Yet it is generally agreed that there can be only one format that will
 
come out on top, and with memories of the format war between
 
the VHS and Beta-max video tapes no more than a few decades

ago, most consumers are waiting to see which standard will win the battle.
 
They are afraid of getting burned by investing in technology that will soon be obsolete.
 
The funny part is that it is the customers that will determine the

outcome but many await the outcome before investing. Luckily
 
there are some people that will always invest and the major
 
companies are spending millions and millions to add trust to their
 
particular brand or technology.
 
How to evoke confidence A central dilemma to both Sony and Toshiba is how to evoke
 
enough confidence in their own formats to convince consumers
 
that their format will be around in the long run and not end up like the Beta-max video did two decades ago.
 
The format question is only a matter of perception by the

consumers on which technology that will win the war.
 
If consumers perceive one format to be more likely to be around
 
five years from now, they will buy software titles and movie in that
 hdtv,television,movie,blu-ray,digital
format and the machines to play that particular format.
 
When the movie studios and software companies see that
 
consumers like that format, be it Blu-ray or HD-DVD, they will publish more titles in that format.

When consumers see more a lot more titles in one format than the
other, they will gain even more confidence in that format and the
 
“good spiral” has begun which will determine who will win the format war.
 
Blu-ray backed by Twentieth Century Fox Recently the major company Twentieth Century Fox has
 
announced that it will release many movie titles in the Blu-ray

format and that it thereby backs the format of Sony.
 
Releasing between five to ten titles per month, this is a major show

of confidence in Blu-ray’s potential to be the winning format.
 
The steady stream of new titles should provide anyone who is
 
thinking of buying a Blu-ray player or who already owns one with
 
plenty of new movies to look forward to over the next year.

The direction towards the Blu-ray technology is good news for TV
 
and computer technology in general because of the technical
 
advantages that Blu-ray has over the HD-DVD format.
 
Superior quality doesn’t always win
One of the main benefits comes from the fact that even though
 
they rely on similar types of laser technology and are both about
 
the same physical size, a HD-DVD discs can only store fifteen
 
gigabytes on each side for a total of only thirty gigabytes while a
 
Blu-ray disc can store up to twenty five gigabytes of data on each side for a total of fifty gigabytes.
 
Unfortunately, the consumer’s decisions aren’t always in favor of the superior technology.
