Blu-ray discs can store more than just video and audio data. They can also be used for storing data in the form of computer files and programs, images and other content. They are backward compatible with DVDs and can use the same formatting and file-writing software.
Security Lock-in and Long Term Preservation
Blu-ray discs are more secure than DVDs, as they use 128-bit encryption. This is important for companies and individuals that need to secure their data and prevent unauthorized access and copying.
Encryption can be used in two ways – to prevent someone from reading the data on the disc or to prevent them from copying it.
Disc Durability and Ease of use
Blu-ray discs are more durable than DVDs and can be kept for 100 years. This is due to the fact that they use a different type of dye that can withstand the test of time. This is extremely important for companies and governmental organizations that need to preserve data for long periods of time.
