Best way to archive home videos

I am hoping someone here can point me in the right direction! I have been reading the Missing Manual for iMovie '11 but am still a bit confused. I have home movies taken both on my iPhone and my Panasonic HD camcorder. I would like to edit them onto a DVD or Blu-Ray so that I can have a nice collection to watch. However, my other concern is the footage being archived well and lasting a long time.

I know that I cannot burn actual HD to DVD and in order to view the HD I'd have to get a Blu-Ray burner and software. How bad would the quality be if I burned everything to DVD? And if I do burn to Blu-Ray or DVD, will I have to store the raw footage on hard drive in order to preserve it? Or will it be safe on the Blue-Ray or DVD? I am not sure how long those last, but I also do not really want to have to deal with storing large video files on external hard drives for years to come.

Any help is appreciated!
