    Numerical Aperature measures the ability of a lens togather and focus light. As the numerical aperture

    increases, the focusing power increases and the beamsize decreases Phase change implies that the disc section is either an

    amorphous or crystalline state. The reflectivity changesaccordingly thus representing a binary bit

    Recorder Characteristics

    Over two hours of HDTV can be placed on asingle layer BD, which correlates to over 13hours for standard TV

    The transfer rate is 36 megabits per second

    At 1x speed, it takes approximately 1.5 hoursto record an entire single layer BD

    Recorder Cost: $1,500 - $2,500; BD Cost:$26

    Expected to be available in the U.S. by 2006

    This issue has introduced a competitor, the HD-DVD, that based itstechnology around being compatible with the DVD

    Recently the BDA has developed recorders that are BD/DVD/CDcompatible

    JVC has advanced the BD by developing a BD/DVD combo disc that

    stores both DVD and BD data. It is composed of two DVD layers and athird BD layer storing 33.5 GB total

    HDTV contains a copyright bit that isdetected by the BD recorder. If the broadcasthas no copyright bit, then the BD recorder isallowed to store the information

    Uses the Data Encryption Standard (DES)that has a key length of 56 bits

    A Key Block and Disc ID are written into theROM area to prevent illegal copying

    Expect the BD to become more prevalentonce the HDTV market establishes itspresence

    Audio and video will reach higher qualitieswith larger storage space

    Look for BD with more than two layers as the

    technology is further refined
