“The new Blu-ray Disc movies with BD Live present users with unique features of the next-generation video players — online interactive capability — offering the ultimate entertainment experience beyond high definition,” said George Tang, ArcSoft's VP and GM of the video and home entertainment group. “BD Profile 2.0 certification guarantees compatibility with BD Live specifications to ensure that users get the true BD-Live experience.
