Why should you upgrade to Blu-ray Disc Authoring?
Even in this difficult economy, Blu-ray Disc players and discs are among the strongest sellers in consumer electronics. Every day more and more people are upgrading their HD home theaters to include Blu-ray - either with a Sony PlayStation3 or a stand-alone Blu-ray Disc player. In fact, now you can find a fully loaded Blu-ray player that supports all the latest Blu-ray technology and interactivity for under $300.
Blu-ray Discs you create using the Pioneer BDR-203 burner and Verbatim Blu-ray Disc media will play perfectly in all the latest Blu-ray players, including the Sony PS3. While some first generation Blu-ray players had some play back issues with playing back discs made on the original BDR-101 burner, we are not seeing these issues at all with current players. You can be totally confident that when you start producing and delivering your HD content on Blu-ray using the Pioneer BDR-203 burner your customers will have no problems watching it at home.
