Panasonic demos Blue Ray for crowd

Located in Hall 3, the main attraction on the Panasonic and Al Futtaim Panatech stand this year’s show is its Blue Ray technology products, which are being shown for the first time in the Middle East at Gitex 2005. Blue Ray technology, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD), is a next-generation optical disc format developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD). The format is likely to become a standard for PC data storage and high-definition movies.
