HD format wars end in compromise

Combo drives, disks emerge before HD DVD does a Betamax

By INQUIRER newsdesk: Thursday 04 January 2007, 15:03
THE FIRST DUAL-FORMAT Blu-ray and HD-DVD drives will be on show at the Consumer Electronic Show this month.

Manufacturer LG has been beavering on the combo drive it announced last year and says it will deliver these in March, after a launch at the show.

Meanwhile, according to the New York Times, Time Warner company Warner Bros is ready to market a dual-format disk that will work in both Blu-ray and HD DVD drives.

At least, the company has pitched a brand-name into the seething waters of format disputes even if it is a bit short on specifics.

Warner's Total HD disc may be double-sided or multi-layered or may be capacity constrained - more will be revealed at CES - but it's stab at pleasing consumers who will no-doubt want to avoid buying players of each format to add to the stack under the telly in the living room.

Whether disks end up being dual-format or whether players all end up supporting both formats remains to be seen.

With Sony's muscles behind the Blu-ray format, and consequent pressure on Hollywood, we're ready to suggest HD DVD will soon be dead in the water.

Anyone believing that the world won't be flooded with PS3s within 12 months is either luddite or vole.

just read an article about that. Here's another goodie: Someone's already crashed HD-DVD DRM. Rumors also exist that BR has been cracked too.

IMHO DVD's are fine, I'd push the content back a layer so it'll be more protected, anyone who needs 4GB+ portable storage should shoot for a portable HDD.

CD/DVD's in a protective cassette would be cool, sort of like a large floppy.

Copyright protection is a joke and the only way they can ever get it right is a private key encryption that has to be decoded with a public key on a licensing server, meaning inet required for DVD players. Funny that most of the new HD players do have a network port and even some modems....so who knows.

HD players are intended strictly for movies anyway, which will never be compressed down to 4/8GB when it's easier to make a bigger disc than to develop an algorithm. I don't think they even give a flip about the "backup/storage" uses of petty consumers. They just want you to have a reason to buy their HDTVs to go along with your new shiny violet-blue laser disc. No corporation in their right mind would ever consider it a valid method of backing up anyway. Tape/Disc libraries are a thing of teh past.

That came out 5 years ago. Maybe you've heard of DVD-RAM? keke
It crashed and burned, even with many million dollars of vendor support behind it.

Windows Vista runs off Linux too~ every appliance Sony makes runs off their company Linux distro. I've got some of teh source for their OS at the office from the Sony NSP-1 Network Media players (POS) they demo marketed.

I have a question though~ how do you "hack into blu-ray" when your inside a PS3 anyway?
