BD Media : Video vs Data

Hi,

Was in Japan recently, and notice that the BD-R & BD-RE have a ‘For Data Use’ and “For Video Use” version for certain brands like Panasonic/Sony. (written in Japan, on the packaging)

For the printable one which i bought, the edge of the disc also have :
eg. BD-R 50GB Data or BD-R 50GB Video.

Other than different labeling / marketing,
is there any differences on these disc ?

I understand for CDs, there is Music & Data due to royalities involved.
For DVD, there is Dvd-r & Dvd+r.
I dont remember anything on Bluray.

Appreciate any clarification on this.

Thanks

They are similar to the CPRM compatible DVD-Rs.

Thanks Pepst,

Dont quite under the link contents.

In short,
If a user burn data to a video BD-R disc,
will the data/archive integrity be less inferior as compare to using data BD-R ?

No - both types are basically the same.
