According to Zane Vella, CEO of Related Content Database, all studios are putting out Blu-ray titles with some BD Live functionality.
Two companies in America have previewed a new application that allows users to interact with their BD-live Blu-ray players through their mobile phones.
Put simply, Sun -- a proud member of the Blu-ray Disc Association Board of Directors -- has teamed up with Related Content Database Inc. in order to create said website and offer devs, BD content owners and consumer electronics manufacturers “advanced network services focused on improving the overall BD-Live user experience.”
Variety interviewed 13 programmers, studio execs, disc producers, sound guys and filmmakers who are on the ground floor of transforming Blu-ray into more than just high-def DVD.
Also of interest at CES, the company RCDB was demonstrating their Related Content Database (RCDb) which provides software and services for network-connected Blu-ray discs and players. The company offers server platforms and rapid development programs to help content providers adopt BD-Live.
LAS VEGAS — HD DVD won’t be the only high-definition video disc format with Web-enabled interactivity much longer. San Francisco-based software developer Related Content Database is announcing at International CES two new Blu-ray feature platforms — BD-Live and BD Magic.
One of the most compelling demos of next-gen interactivity I've seen is a technology being dubbed Blu-ray Magic. Using Blu-ray's network-connected BD live platform, connects BD users to pertinent content and materials, even when there's no disc in the machine.
ArcSoft, Inc. and Related Content Database Inc. (RCDB) have come together to create ArcSoft TotalMedia Extreme with BD Magic, an optional Blu-ray player feature that adds both a network content delivery channel and an on-screen personal media library.
