What is Blu-ray exactly? Blu-ray refers to a disc-based format used to store digital media. Although it's capable of storing all forms of media, it's most commonly used for video. According to Wikipedia, the world's first Blu-ray player was unveiled by Sony in 2000 at the CEATEC exhibition. Shortly thereafter, a consortium of nine technology companies joined forces to create the Blu-ray Disc Founders, which was responsible for creating the framework for Blu-ray discs and their respective players.
