First, some definitions. A "Blu Ray" disc
is named for the blue laser beam that reads data from high-definition
discs. (Standard DVDs use a red laser instead.) A blue
laser can be focused more tightly, so a "Blu Ray" can be
packed with more data than a regular DVD can hold. In fact,
Blu-Rays can hold 25–50 GB of data! That capacity makes
Blu-Ray capable of containing high-resolution video.
The video resolution on Blu-Ray video is called "1080p"
because it redraws 1,080 lines across the screen in a progressive
fashion. (Each line contains 1920 pixels, as compared to
standard-def DVD's 720 pixels.) Comparatively, regular
NTSC only has 525 scan lines. This is why Blu-Ray, and
high-definition channels offered by cable and satellite
providers, look so much sharper than what audiences have
been used to for years. To take full advantage of Blu-Ray,
most consumers also should have an HDTV,
which can extract the full quality and widescreen effect.
When we convert to Blu-Ray from an HD
tape or cam, we preserve the exact quality of
your high-definition file or tape. In fact, one of
the upcoming features in this section of our site will
be a detailed explanation of how we convert to blu-ray,
just like on our Copy
Video to DVD and Convert
to MOV pages.
High-definition recording is a feature
that is increasingly available on consumer camcorder models.
HD video cameras capture widescreen video in 1080i resolution,
the same stunning line quality found on high-definition
TV channels and Blu-Ray discs. The downside is that HD
videos takes up a lot of hard drive or Flash card space,
and require a computer with excellent processors as well
as a good software program. Plus, they are more difficult
to share with friends and family because transferring them
to disc can be a tricky operation.
That's where we come in! Soon, Timeless DVD will be able
to Blu-ray from your HD video – no
matter the source. We will create
discs that are easy to watch and
easy to share. Our Blu Rays will be housed in the same
high-quality DVD packaging that customers have come to
expect from Timeless DVD as a professional video conversion
So come back! We expect our Blu-Ray service to be
available by the end of the year. If you have questions,
please don't hesitate to contact us via our Convert
to DVD page.
