Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Blu-ray technology used on my Philips set?

Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD) is the name of a next-generation optical disc format. The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data.

  • A single-layer disc can hold 25GB
  • A dual-layer disc can hold 50GB

To ensure that the Blu-ray Disc format is easily extendable (future-proof) it also includes support for multi-layer discs, which should allow the storage capacity to be increased to 100GB-200GB (25GB per layer) in the future simply by adding more layers to the discs.

The information on this page applies to the following models: BDP7200/98 .
