First U.S. Indie Blu-ray Replication Plant Opens

BDtech.jpgBlue Ray Technologies just completed it’s $12 million plant in downtown Spokane, WA (We might have to take a day trip to check out the plant) and produced the first run of true indie Blu-ray discs in the U.S. following an arrangement with GE Plastics. The advanced, eco-friendly plant may also be the first of its kind in the world. What we find kinda funny is that GE is contributing to Blu-ray replication, but it’s film studio Universal Pictures supports HD DVD exclusively. This is kinda like Toshiba collaborating on the Cell chip for the Sony PS3.

    $12 million plant in downtown Spokane, WA . Amazing. Wonder, if they gave out free blu-ray discs that day to celebrate. Do they deal with the ACCS certification and authoring for Blu-ray or are companies like needed for that.
