BD-Live, A New Online Feature on Blu-ray Disc.

The New Blu-ray Feature Allows You to Download Additional Content for Your BD-Live Movie.

BD-Live 2.0 is a standard for Blu-ray players that utilizes your internet connection and allows you to download additional content for your BD-Live movie.

What's the BD-Live?

The answer is pretty simple: you put more content in it. It need not be more behind the scenes, but it can easily be something dependent on your Internet connection, secondary or overlay content in a picture-in-picture (PIP), online interactivity, access to additional local storage, exclusive downloadable content, trivia games to play with other people watching the same movie, or all these together and possibly more advanced interactivity that that they haven't thought of yet. And all these advanced technologies come with the Blu-ray Disc Live feature, also known as BD-Live.

Can I Use BD-Live Feature?

Of course you do. So do we all. But there are always prerequisites, which in the BD-Live case, are two:
1. Your Blu-ray player must support BD Live
2. You need a broadband Internet connection with high bandwidth

Please note that item number 1 is the most important part because the BD-Live feature is optional in all Blu-ray players. If you already have a Blu-ray player, check to see if it supports BD-Live, either built-in or by firmware update. If you are going to make a purchase, insist on seeing proof that the device supports BD-Live. And here's a Bright Hub tip: ask for the profile version. If it is 2.0 and if the product has Internet connection capability, it means that it supports BD-Live. BD-Live depends on Blu-ray Java (BD-J for short). BD-J is required for all the features I have listed under the “BD-Live?” section except the Internet connection. Basically, the equation is BD-J + Internet Connection = BD-Live. According to the Blu-ray Disc Association, the BD-J feature was made mandatory for all the devices as of October 31, 2007. BD-J is becoming the de facto standard for the interactive TV as well, thanks to the Sony Playstation 3, which is the showcase product of the BD-Live players.

BD-Live 2.0 there are currently only a few players available that have the specification. Many are announced but have not hit stores yet. Those include the Sony BDP-S550, the Sony PlayStation 3, Pioneer BDP-LX91, Samsung BD-P2500, Panasonic DMP-BD50, and Sharp BD-HP50U.
