Lecture Focus Questions:

What is the difference between BD-R and BD-RE discs?
Like Blu-Ray Recordable (BD-R) discs, Blu-Ray Re-Writable (BD-RE) discs are designed to store up to 25GB of large HD video and audio files. Using blue-violet laser technology, BD-RE discs can handle up to 1080p resolution and multiple audio formats. However, unlike BD-R’s, you can add to or write over content on a BD-RE disc, making Blu-Ray Re-Writable discs ideal for backing-up music and video collections.
