Media standards and players


By: Sander Sassen

There were a few manufacturers that showed their progress on technology they first showed during last CeBIT. Philips is one of these manufacturers. Last year they showed the first optical devices using Blu-Ray technology. One of the smallest Blu-Ray devices they showed last year was the Philips Portable Blue which uses a coin sized disk to store more than a GB of data. This year they had a fully functional Blu-Ray recorder on display thatíll fit right into your audio rack.

Blu-Ray advantages

As the inventor of the Compact Disc, we expected nothing less from Philips and this recorder offered a truly amazing image quality at 1080i HDTV resolution which was playing from the pre-recorded Blu-Ray disc. When these recorders are finally shipping youíll be able to store 25 Gigabyte of data on a disc equal in size to that of a cd. Unfortunately Philips was unable to comment on when these recorders would be available, of how many minutes of HDTV quality video we could store on a single disc.
