Dolby Introduces Dolby TrueHD Advanced 96K Upsampling for Blu-ray
When it comes to sound, it doesn’t get much better than Blu-ray.  Or at least that’s what we thought before Dolby announced that they’re improving things even more.  They’re going to be using TrueHD technology along with 96K upsampling to provide the best audio possible for the home environment.  Dolby says that by improving the source of the lossless audio before encoding, they’re able to eliminate digital artifacts in the source material of 48K mastered recordings and restore the natural sound.

Star Trek: The Next Generation Goes Blu-ray in 2012
Sure 'Star Wars' has made the jump to Blu-ray, but if you fall into the hard sci-fi camp, you'll probably be a bit more enthused about the coming release of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' in 2012. And, unlike 'Star Wars' fans, you won't have to worry about unwelcome changes.  They're returning to the original film negatives to put this together and they'll be recompositioning the special effects shots rather than upconverting them.  You'll get 1080p 'Star Trek: TNG' with 7.1 channel surround - all in time for the 25th anniversary of the show.

iPad, iPhone and iPod Users Get a Sneak Peak of the Star Wars Blu-ray
We're only a few months away from what will almost certainly be the biggest Blu-ray release yet.  Since high definition discs were introduced, fans have been craving epic films like the 'Indiana Jones' trilogy, 'Jaws,' 'Jurassic Park,' and all of the other big screen adventures that need to be appreciated in a higher resolution.  Though all of these are in high demand, the outcry for 'Star Wars' overtakes them all. If you're the owner of an Apple iDevice - an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch - you'll be able to get an early peek at what the Blu-ray set has to offer.  Starting on August 2nd, iPhone and iPod owners will be able to download the app, but if you own an iPad you can go ahead and grab it right now.

Jurassic Park is Finally Coming to Blu-ray
As great a format as Blu-ray is, it can still be difficult to get people on board when their favorite films have yet to be released.  Among those hotly anticipated films, more than a few of them come from director Steven Spielberg. Thankfully, the wait will soon be over for those craving his 1993 masterpiece 'Jurassic Park.'  The original film and its two sequels will be hitting Blu-ray on October 25, 2011.  The films have, of course, been completely remastered and you'll be able to enjoy 7.1 channel surround sound.

Kubrick Blu-ray Collection May Be Damaging Discs
There's nothing wrong with trying to do something exciting and new when it comes to disc packaging, but it doesn't always work out quite right. We've seen plenty of strangely shaped boxes and even a 'Back to the Future' Blu-ray set with packaging so bad it required instructions. The latest fiasco stems from the packaging for the Stanley Kubrick box set.  When pulling a disc out of the sleeve that it's stored in, you'll meet a bit of resistance and have to apply a fair deal of force to get it out.   While several videos and reviews mentioned the packaging as being a pain, some people are reporting damaged discs.
