CSI:Miami - Germany's first BD-Live disc

On June 30, German independent Universum Film will release the country's first Blu-ray disc offering BD-Live features – the popular television series CSI: Miami Season 5.1.

Alongside first class high definition video, the 2-disc Blu-ray Edition features an interactive “Investigation Mode” as well as additional BD-Live functionality via dynamicHD. This technology was developed by German authoring house Imagion AG to easily integrate BD-Live features to any BD movie title. It offers the option of adding additional content to Blu-ray discs via the Internet at any time.

The “Investigation Mode” provides forensic and other information and picture-in-picture interviews with cast & crew during feature playback on Bonus-View .
The first-time integration of a dynamicHD client for BD-Live access offers the option of adding additional content, such as background information, news, new CSI trailers, picture galleries and many more via the Internet.

A planned future feature will be the opportunity for CSI: Miami fans to interact with other CSI enthusiasts via the online community directly from their Blu-ray player.

These BD-Live features are available on all current Profile 2.0 Blu-ray players as well as on Sony’s PlayStation 3.
