HD-DVD news

July 12, 2004

dvd-caseThe Blu-Ray and HD-DVD battle may just be heating up, but what does it mean to the home theater enthusiast? Well if the VHS/Betamax war was any indication, the early adopters may be the ones on the losing end, if the studios and manufacturers can’t agree on one, high quality format.

Sites such as dvdsite.org tout the need for one format only, if consumers are to embrace the format. Online petitions such as “Consumer Expectations of HD-DVD” look for grass roots support for the cause. It may still be many months before all of this is sorted out, but I for one look forward to the day I buy my last standard definition DVD.
