The fugitive movie part 1 So

The fugitive movie part 1

So continue to watch this space for daily news coverage and reviews, and see you in the fourth quarter with my impressions on round two of the great high-def DVD format war. 95 HDNet HD DVDs Interesting. Kind of like a HD vacation advertisement. newsid3126 refy With the bulk of Blu-ray writers launching at 2x write speeds, a higher speed media seems a little premature. However, TDK brought Blu-ray media rated at 6x to the 8th Annual Data Storage Expo in Japan and expects to launch media rated at 4x before the end of 200 The 6x media is a single layer 25GB Blu-ray disc which probably wont reap benefits until 6x drives come out. We are guessing we wont see 6x drives until at least later this year or early 2007 given the launch trends of previous optical standards. TDK was also showing off 100GB Blu-ray media which we reported on back in April. The 100GB media uses a 4-layer process which has spacer layers between. TDKs latest trend graph shows a maximum speed of 4x for 100GB media. TDK did again hint at 200GB media on that same trend graph which also shows a 6x write speed. The 200GB media is an 8-layer media on a single side. We probably wont see that density for another year or two so well have to be satisfied with the current 25GB/50GB capacities. we should do a head count or a quick check list on who has been fighting for what format. we should do a head count or a quick check list on who has been fighting for what format. cuz ill be head hunting:D:D Head hunting? Like the My dad could beat up your dad kind of thing? Seems pointless to me. Also note that there is a difference between prefering a format and predicting that it will triumph. I prefer the lower cost of HD-DVD over blu-ray, but am in no way claiming that HD-DVD will win. Id far prefer to have both formats fail. Im better off waiting for a distribution technology that doesnt force me to replace thousands upon thousands of dollars of equipment for no reason. 😡 If it wont output HD over component, I wont the crap. Youre ok. neither format has enabled Image Constraint Token so you can indeed run HD over component. Ill own both formats and Ive always been clear the fugitive movie part 1 that and quite honestly I dont know who will win. I champion HD DVD because both formats were conceived primarily as a movie distribution format and HD DVD gives excellent HD quality for the lowest cost possible for all parties involved Production side and consumer side Blu-Ray is indeed a technological marvel but it is neither a fast optical format nor cheap and thats why I dont support it. Technological superiority should yield a noticable improvement in quality. Youre ok. Neitehr format has enabled Image Constraint Token so you can indeed run HD over component.

Technological superiority should yield a noticable improvement in quality. Indeed it-HD DVD-has a lower cost on the production side, but claiming it does on the consumer side in one instance price of media, is entirely false, the fugitive movie part 1 in another instance price of hardware is very, very misleading. On the consumer side, price of media for Blu-ray and HD DVD is the SAME. As it pertains to hardware, the price of hardware is also the SAME, however, at this current moment, the hardware that will make it the SAME will not be out for another 4 months-the PS So, in general, as it stands currently and for only the next 4 months, HD DVD is indeed cheaper from a hardware perspective, BUT if you think 4 months is going to win a format war and solely based on cost, you are most certainly looking at this with a narrow perspective as content supportBlu-ray has more support, hardware support Blu-ray has more support, and industry supportBlu-ray has more support, are all variables that will come into the equation. As Ive been saying for a long, long time, cost does not trump all, especially when we are talking about an early adoption market. Blu-ray is a faster optical format than HD DVD, and again as far as cost goes from a consumers perspective, is the SAME on the media side and and is also the SAME on the hardware side when you look at what both sides are offering or are going to offer. However, Ill give you the fact that for the next 4 months HD DVD will be cheaper from a hardware perspective. Enjoy it while it lasts. Dfiler, to add to what Murch was saying in regards to ICT and how you will have the availability to watch HD over component, you wont have to be forced to to replace thousands upon thousands of dollars of equipment for no reason because you may keep all of your existing DVDs and enjoy them being upconverted as well. In addition, depending on what format you decide to go with, it should only cost you 499 and not thousands upon thousands with the availability of the HD-A1 from Toshiba or the PS3 from Sony. Marzetta7 is correct the price of pre-recorded media is infact very similar between the formats. Im please by this. Funny that people say cost does not trump all.
