Blu-ray Disc Association Welcomes BANDAI VISUAL to Growing Number of Member Companies


Japanese Anime Content Developer Supports Blu-ray Disc's High-Definition Technology

The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) announced that BANDAI VISUAL CO., Ltd.

"Creating high-definition content such as animation is a very important theme for us. We expect Blu-ray Disc to strengthen our content technology and enable higher picture quality."

"The BDA is a membership organization comprised of almost 100 industry leaders all working to create the next generation of high-definition technology and content. Bandai Visual's decision is the recognition that high-quality content needs high-quality technology," said Kiyoshi Nishitani, Senior Vice President, Executive Officer of Sony Corporation, on behalf of the Blu-ray Disc Association. "We are confident that this trend will continue with more content companies continuing to join BDA."
