In the previous post we mainly looked at Blu-ray as a new technology and how it improves over the former technological pace-setter, DVD.
Now we will consider the impact Blu-ray has made on consumers, along with how you can install your Blu-ray player on the wall, to really bring your home cinema setup into the 21st century.
The majority of consumer electronics, music, video game and personal computer companies are behind the Blu-ray format, which means that there are now so many products being released on this format all the time.
In the film industry, this has been unanimous as once HD DVD finally admitted defeat, all the studios decided to release their latest feature films on Blu-ray discs and continue to bring out hits from their back catalogues of movies.
If you take a look online at the most popular DVD and media stores, you will find so many movies in the Blu-ray format, plus review sites which let you know how good the films are and how they have improved on the DVD picture and sound as well as which ones are due for release in the near future.
Once you buy your new Blu-ray player, you can now decide to mount it on a DVD shelf, which works much like TV brackets in that it is fitted into the wall. This mounting option is great as you can place the shelf just below your LCD or plasma TV in order to provide support your equipment, while keeping it from harm.
