Samsung offers new Blu-ray education website
Launched just yesterday, Samsung is now providing a website designed to educate would-be owners and existing Blu-ray Disc owners alike. The Blu-ray Resource Center is split in two: One side devoted to those looking to buy Blu-ray, and the other for current owners.
An example of what you might find on the site are articles titled, “Isn’t upconverted DVD just as good as Blu-ray?” and “How do I get the most out of my Blu-ray player?” Samsung promises to provide a new topic for both sections of the site on a weekly basis.
If you’re familiar with Blu-ray already, the “looking to buy” section doesn’t have any new information, but if you are new to the technology it does have the basics, like what the advantages of Blu-ray Disc are. Otherwise, it sort of describes the features of their own Blu-ray players.
The Blu-ray owner’s section provides information on installation and how to get the best out of the players (especially the Samsung ones, obviously), and has firmware downloads. It is here that Samsung proclaims “Profile 2.0 represents the final specifications for Blu-ray discs and players.” That’s good news to hear.
Overall, it’s well designed and provides quick answers.
