SD video (DV AVI) future proofed for Blu Ray?

I have a question, with DV-AVI being captured from the DV tapes at SD quality (if shot in SD), when the Blueray format becomes the format to use, will we will be able to view our AVI's? (i.e. then we'll have HD screens and players, etc...).

I don't know if it's possible/worth it to uprez all the footage, but will these be safe for a long time, even after blue ray?

1080 30p Incompatible with Blu Ray?

Excuse me, this may not be entirely relavant to this board, but because of the excellent feedback I've received here about potential mis-information received elsewhere, I wonder if this is true? Someone on another forum just made the definite statement that "1080 30p is incompatible with Blu Ray". I don't have a Blu Ray burner yet, but will be getting one shortly. One of the reasons I purchased Prospect and then the EX-1 was to use 1080 30p. Am I barking up the wrong tree?

Blu-ray profile specification?

Hi everybody,

I'm authoring 50 and 60 Hz Blu-ray discs that will be used as part of an international standard. I want to make sure that the discs comply to the spec, and that I'm encoding for the highest possible quality.

Does anybody know where I can download or buy the BD media spec?

I don't need player or physical disc details. I just need to know the limits for encoding MPEG-4 AVC that will fit legally on the disc.

Thanks!

See Blu-ray Disc Public Specs.

Looking at the PDF paper available from that link, the max video bitrate for any of the supported video codecs is 40Mbps. The max audio bitrate depends on the audio codec used. For LPCM it's 27.648Mbps, for Dolby Digital 640kbps, for Dolby Digital Plus 4.736Mbps, for Dolby Lossless 18.64Mbps, for DTS digital surround 1.524Mbps, and for DTS-HD 24.5Mbps.

Perfect! Thanks!

Here's the direct link to the PDF:
http://www.blu-raydisc.com/Assets/Do...tion-15496.pdf

BTW, at NAB, Sony showed 1080p60 from a Blu-ray disc. I asked the person staffing the display what was new, but didn't get a knowledgeable answer. Looking at the spec, it's clear that 1080p24 is supported, but not 1080p60.

Hopefully, 1080p60 will be supported with a future profile...

Thanks again for the reference!

There's nothing to stop you exporting 1080p30 as 1080i60, which certainly is BD compatible. Use two fields to create one progressive frame and the effect should be all but identical on the vast majority of capable displays.

That's a great question. Maybe within the next few months since they have been producing burners with that capability for a few months.

Blue Ray

Anyone out there delivering on blue-ray yet? I have pretty much everything I need except the actual burner I havent had much call for it and I cant see spending a premium price when no one wants it yet. For those who are, what kind of discs do you use? I only see one inkjet printable out there (TDK) $19 each or are you using stick on labels (man I hope not)?

I have done one so far for a paid client. Using Encore CS3 to author. very flaky. Luckily I got everything done and the client is very happy about it. He told me he will be using PS3 for playback.

Oh, I bought the LG burner for $340. I'm sure the price is little bit low now.

Where did you see the inkjet printable blank BD? Link?

Inkjet Blu-Ray Media

So it looks like TDK has printable Blu-Ray, and Imation is coming out with it soon. They are $18 each (on a spindle from the looks of it):
http://www.tapeonline.com/Blu-ray/TD...Printable.aspx

Falcon makes printable Blu-Ray for $15.49, but I've never heard of them:
http://www.discmakers.com/shop/ItemD...D=BDR010-00010

RiDATA's are non inkjet friendly, but are $10:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc..._-NA-_-NA-_-NA

I just can't deliver a wedding DVD without a proper label. Thoughts?

I have some TDK BD-R discs which are inkjet printable with some TDK labeling across the middle, and I think they're the same as the ones at Tapeonline for $11.47. Not an ideal solution due to the TDK logo, but functional.
