Universal introduces a new 'flipper' disc

Universal Studios Home Entertainment announced the introduction of dual-format disc containing both Blu-ray and DVD versions of some of Hollywood's most iconic films. The new "flipper" discs will launch on 19 January 2010 with the blockbuster ‘The Bourne Identity,’ ‘The Bourne Supremacy’ and ‘The Bourne Ultimatum,’ premiering as individually packaged Blu-ray discs.

“For the first time ever, consumers will have the ability to choose between Blu-ray and DVD formats, simply by flipping a single disc. With complete utility in one convenient package, the revolutionary medium can be used on any DVD or Blu-ray compatible player, game platform or computer, making it ideal for anyone planning to upgrade to Blu-ray at a future date as well as current owners of both Blu-ray and DVD systems,” says the studio.

Each side of Universal's flipper discs includes the entire movie as well as all available bonus features, with the Blu-ray side featuring BD exclusives such as U-Control and BD-Live.
