Blu-ray is catching on at an interesting rate nowadays, either as a storage medium, a platform for high definition video and audio, or even a super high quality format for audio-only titles, such as Pure Audio Blu-ray. Do mixing and mastering engineers need to change their workflow to incorporate such formats? What is the challenge of working for Blu-ray compared to other surround formats?
