What is a Pop-up Blu-ray menu? As with DVD menus, Blu-ray menus offer an “always-on” style of menu meaning it covers the entire screen. With Blu-ray, there is a second option known as Pop-up menus. With this type, not only is there a full page menu, but the menu information can also “Pop- up” over the actual video/movie while it’s playing. This allows for access to the menu without having to exit the video/movie and jump to a separate menu page. This type of design is more involved than an “always on” menu.
