Blu-ray Dvd

By muzak, May 23, 2008

How can a movie, such as "The Longest Day", which is very old, be available on Blu-Ray? If that's the case, then they should be able to convert any movie to that. How does that work?


Same way they put old movies on DVD.


Maybe in a manner that's similar to digitally re-mastering old albums for CD.

Any media which can be converted to a digital format can be recorded on optical digital media, such as Blu-Ray disks and DVD's. The original analog source hardly makes much difference, aside from the usual considerations of the overall quality. Garbage In, Garbage Out, as it were, applies universally.

BTW, The Longest Day is one of my all-time favorite films, and one which deserves being preserved on Blu-Ray.

One question I have is this: Is there any point in expanding my collection of DVD's, or should I start buying Blu-Ray discs instead? I don't have a Blu-Ray player yet, I'm going to wait and see what happens to them price-wise, since Blu-Ray is now the "winner" over HD-DVD as the future high definition digital media "standard."
