Why does your wedding videographer keep toting Blu-Ray? Isn’t DVD good enough? We have outlined 4 Not-So-Technical-Reason to make sure your wedding video is on Blu-Ray:
Simply put, Blu-Ray is easy on the eyes. The clarity and sharpness of your wedding video on a Blu-Ray blows away the imagery quality displayed on a DVD. “Our videographer gave us copies of our wedding video on both Blu-Ray and DVD. Having watched both, there is definitely a difference between the DVDs and the Blu-Ray. The Blu-Ray really adds dimension, detail, and provides enhanced color,” said Marina who married Brock in August of 2011. “Our wedding video really looks fantastic, it is very crisp and the picture quality superb. We are very pleased!” (Watch Marina & Brocks Lake George wedding video).
Bridal Tip: if image quality is important to you, make sure your videographer gives you a copy of your wedding video on Blu-Ray.
From a videographers standpoint Blu-Ray is great. “I can fit way more content onto a single Blu-Ray disc (up to 50GB) then I can on a standard DVD (4.7GB). That extra space allows me to encode not only a couples Feature and Highlight video on the disc but their behind the scenes “Bridal Cut” as well,” said videographer Dave Bigler.
Blu-Ray is not a new technology; it actually was released to the public nearly 12 years ago in the fall of 2000. Having been out for a good period of time you can now get a great Blu-Ray player for well
less then $100. An added bonus to Blu-Ray players is that you can play your standard definition DVDs on your Blu-Ray player and see a brighter crisper image than if you watch the same DVDs on your old DVD player.
Bridal Tip: if you don’t want to fork over the money for a new Blu-Ray player then just added it to your gift registry and get someone else to buy it for you!
Blu-ray Disc specification requires the testing of resistance to scratches. In contrast, DVDs are not required to be scratch-resistant. Thus, your wedding video will be less likely to scratch, suffer from damage or degrade in quality over time.
Bridal Tip: if your 2 year old nephew makes it a habit of playing frisbee with your video collection, make sure your wedding video is on Blu-Ray.
If you are going to spend thousands on your wedding make sure the video looks as good as it possibly can; make sure your videographer gives you a copy of your wedding video on Blu-Ray.
