Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA)

Overview: The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) is the industry consortium that develops and licenses Blu-ray Disc technology and is responsible for establishing format standards and promoting business opportunities for Blu-ray Disc. The BDA is divided into three levels of membership: the Board of Directors, Contributors, and General Members. The aim of the BDA is to: develop Blu-ray Disc specifications; ensure Blu-ray Disc products are implemented by licensees according to the intent of the specifications; promote wide adoption of Blu-ray Disc formats; and provide useful information to those who are interested in supporting Blu-ray Disc formats. The "Blu-ray Disc founder group" was started in 2002 by MIT and nine leading electronic companies: Sony, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Thomson, LG Electronics, Hitachi, Sharp, and Samsung. In 2004, they formed the BDA to enable more companies to participate.
