Blu-ray is Being Adopted Much Faster Than DVD 11 Years Ago


Singulus Technologies mentioned that Blu-ray is being adopted much faster than DVD in its period, 11 years ago. The statement came after the company received orders for producing 21 Blu-ray dual-layer machines only during this year's first quarter.

"This means that the orders for Blu-ray in the first year of the dual layer technology already by far exceeded the volume at the start of the DVD eleven years ago with 17 machines," commented Stefan Baustert, the Chief Financial Officer of Singulus Technologies.

The German producer of optical disk equipment and world's only provider of such services as mastering, molding and replication states that there were additional orders of Blu-ray dual-player machines in this year's first quarter and that for the first time the customers from the United States had accepted one of such machines.

It is worth mentioning that for several years there was a struggle between Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats. The dispute came to an end when Hollywood studio Warner Bros. decided to work only with the Blu-ray format.

What a stupid study. Studios didn't use dual-layered discs in DVD's infancy. Meaningless numbers have to be given a spin because nobody gives a crap about Blu-ray.

I think I'll save a lot of money on movies in the future.
No DRM for me, thanks.
I'll learn to play an instrument.
