If you're looking for the ultimate in home entertainment, Blu-ray is the way to go. Blu-ray movies are all about making your entertainment experience as close to theater quality as possible. This amazing new technology harnesses the power of high-definition audio and video to deliver home entertainment like never before. Anyone who wants to make the most of their home theater should take a look at the guide below, which gives tips on maximizing your Blu-ray movie experience.
An HD television: While Blu-ray players are capable of playing through older televisions, you will want an HDTV or HD-ready TV with at least 720p, 1080i or 1080P resolution to get the best picture that a Blu-ray movie is capable of. Without an HDTV, the most obvious benefit of Blu-ray movies will be lost to you.
An HDMI cable: You have a few options when it comes to the cables you connect your television and your Blu-ray player with, but to experience the clearest high-definition sound and video using only one cable, your choice should be an HDMI cable. HDMI cables ensure you get premium audio and video out of your Blu-ray movies.
A Blu-ray player: Blu-ray discs won't play on standard DVD players, so you will need a Blu-ray player to watch Blu-ray movies. Fortunately, you don't have to worry about throwing out your DVDs when you purchase a Blu-ray player, as they also read DVD discs. Blu-ray discs can be played on standalone Blu-ray players, Blu-ray drives for home PCs and even Playstation 3 consoles.
Blu-ray movies: Once you have experienced the high-definition picture and high-definition audio that all packed on to one disc, you'll only want to watch Blu-ray movies. Start your Blu-ray library with your favorite movies, and be sure to get a few that will really show off what your new set-up is capable of, like a movie with beautiful scenery or one with lots of special effects. Not only does every major new release come out on Blu-ray, but the back catalog of older films offered on Blu-ray is increasing daily, ensuring that you'll be able to own all of your favorite movies and TV shows in the highest quality format available.
