There was a time when we were content with floppy disks as storage devices, despite their limited space. Then came CDs, which offered greater storage capacity and improved resolution. After that, DVDs came into existence. They were superior in quality and storage, but they can’t be considered the best. The latest development is the Blu-ray DVD, which offers amazing clarity due to its high resolution. These are the desired discs nowadays.

Major studios like Warner Brothers are releasing their movies on Blu-ray discs to take full advantage of the DVD’s resolution. Obviously, to watch these discs, you need a Blu-ray player, just like you need a regular DVD player for standard DVDs. Recently, there was a competition between HD-DVD and Blu-ray, but HD-DVD has officially been discontinued, leaving Blu-ray as the leading technology in the market. Although both formats are similar, they support different technologies.

The new Blu-ray DVDs can’t be played on regular DVD players. However, this doesn’t mean that you need to replace your old player with a new Blu-ray player just to watch DVDs that are not in the Blu-ray format. The electronic devices available on the market are backward compatible. This means you can dispose of your old player without worry and use a Blu-ray player to play all types of DVDs, including those that are not in the Blu-ray format. This essentially renders regular DVDs obsolete. However, standard DVDs won’t display in high resolution since they are not Blu-ray DVDs. They can only be played on a Blu-ray player, although in some cases, they can be upscaled to 720p/1080i or 1080p mode.

On the other hand, if you have some CDs that you also want to play in the player, you can do so. However, in certain situations, this may not be an option. Therefore, it is advisable to check the technical specifications of the player in question before making a purchase.

The connectivity options are similar in both players. The inputs for a Blu-ray player can include S-video, composite, and component. The outputs may consist of digital optical, analog stereo, and digital coaxial. Additional outputs may include HDMI, which is used to transmit video and audio to an AV/TV receiver; 5.1 or 7.1 channel analog, and an Ethernet jack for internet connectivity.
