With the popularity of high-definition movies, it’s a trend for Blu-ray movie to replace the traditional DVD movies. With higher resolution and video quality, Blu-ray opens a totally different HD era to movie fans. Without question, with the popularity of Blu-ray, Blu-ray shrink, or in other words Blu-ray backup, has also being needed from public.

Simply speaking, Blu-ray backup is the process people copy and backup Blu-ray contents from a Blu-ray disc to computer hard disk or a new blank Blu-ray disc without quality loss. During the whole process, the size of Blu-ray content might stay the same. Different from the traditional Blu-ray backup, Blu-ray shrink technology helps people to copy and backup Blu-ray content to computer hard disk or a blank disc (either Blu-ray disc or DVD disc) without quality loss but with size reduced. This new Blu-ray backup technique could copy and backup Blu-ray content from a BD50 disc to a blank BD25 disc while retain Blu-ray movie quality.
