BD-ROM Disc Features
BD-ROM Discs can store 25 GB (single layer) or 50 GB (dual layer) on a
single sided disc - about 5 to 10 times the capacity of a DVD.
BD-ROM Discs also support the highest quality HD video available in the
industry (up to 1920 x 1080) - Large capacity means no compromise on
video quality. Furthermore, a BD-ROM disc has the same familiar size and
look as DVD.
