Product description


Get a grasp around the detailed explanations of Blu-ray production and authoring processes. As the war between Blu-ray and HD-DVD heats up, "Blu-ray Disc Demystified" provides you with the most current Blue-ray information and applications available. It reflects the many challenges and changes that have occurred in the development and usage of this high-definition optical disc format. In addition to basic technology, the authors explain how the standard and high definition DVD specifications dovetail and/or clash with related digital media standards.
