this is from wiki

Blu-ray Disc (also known as Blu-ray or BD) is an optical disc storage medium designed by Sony to supersede the standard DVD format. Its main uses are high-definition video and data storage with 50GB per disc. The disc has the same physical dimensions as standard DVDs and CDs.

The name Blu-ray Disc is derived from the blue laser (violet-colored) used to read and write to this type of disc. In part because of the shorter wavelength (405 nanometres), substantially more data (almost 6 times more) can be stored on a Blu-ray Disc than on a standard DVD, which uses a red (650 nm) laser.

Yes much then!

If you have a TV that can resolve 1080p, the picture difference is truly astounding. If you only have an HD-ready TV that can resolve 720p (which will probably then facilitate upscaling to 1080i) then the difference is far less pronounced.

I would say if you have lived this long without it you probably don't need to know!

Massive difference in picture quality!

Sorry, you are right, that's not very helpful.

Basically HD (high definition) TVs can produce two levels of picture quality. 720p, meaning 720 lines across the screen (the more lines the crisper the image) and 1080p. The 'p' means progressive scan, which is the highest quality in its class. There is also 720i and 1080i, where the 'i' means interlaced, which is a fudged attempt at 720p and 1080p quality, but not quite the real thing.

Blu Ray will output 1080p, so if your TV will handle that signal quality, you'll see an astonishing leap in quality in DVD picture. Satellite HD signals are in 720p only, so the Blu Ray picture will be significanlty better than that.

Upscaling is something that some TVs and some standard (non-HD) DVD players can do to improve a non-HD image to something approaching HD quality. I think it gets close to 720i, which is good but not remarkable. It is better than the standard image though.
