“The way is now clear for VMD to be embraced by the industry, our technology is robust and our format is clearly equal to the quality required to deliver a true HD experience for the consumer at a price they are prepared to afford,†said chief executive officer Geoff Russell.
This should make things interesting for Sony and PS3. I know a lot of people who bought PS3 for the main fact it was Blu-ray.

Personally I'm a fan of blu-ray, but it's freaking expensive!

This means capacity to record of 100 GB or more without major changes to DVD players, but the disc technology requires new manufacturing process and production lines. Currently the company can produce up to 30GB discs.
100GB of high-def storage potential that can be used in a standard DVD player.

Let it begin.

But how many DVD players have HD output, and with VMD having no studio support i can't see it lasting too long. I'm guessing that the major studios won't even bother releasing videos on VMD.

Personally, I hope they can bring VMD into the marketplace. Who knows it might bring down the price of Blu-ray!

It not a big enough difference for all the people to switch over to it from blu-ray.

Blu-ray won the war, everyone is making movies for blu-ray. And it'd cost alot to remake those movies in VMD. Thats why its not gonna happen.

Now if there was 1440p TVs out and this was 1440p, then it would happen. But currently blu-rays offer more storage (50GB this only is 30GB atm) and blu-ray will be cheap soon too... DVDs were expensive at first too.

I just bought 20 blu-rays and all of them were 15$ and under. (New blu-rays) Thats not a bad price.
