What Blu-ray formats are Planned?
As with conventional CDs and DVDs,
Blu-ray plans to provide a wide range of formats including
ROM/R/RW. The following formats are part of the Blu-ray Disc
- BD-ROM - read-only format for distribution of HD movies, games,
- BD-R - recordable format for HD video recording and PC data
- BD-RE - rewritable format for HD video recording and PC data
There's also plans for a BD/DVD hybrid format, which combines
Blu-ray and DVD on the same disc so that it can be played in
both Blu-ray players and DVD players.
