A Blue Ray DVD is one of the 2 formats that are currently on the market, that are able to play a Movie in High Definition 1080p. The other format is HD DVD. At the time I am posting this answer, to the best of my knowledge, there is only one maker of a HD DVD player that will play both formats, other wise you have to get a player that will only play Blue Ray, or HD DVD. I do know if only one format will emerge as the only one to be a standard, but if you were around when VCR came out they came out with 2 formats, Betamax, and VHS. When the smoke cleared VHS had managed to push out Betamax in the home market, despite the fact that Betamax was a better format, and was the format of choice for TV broadcasters for many years. shorter version more HI Def pictures and voice thunxxx....
