If I produce HD DVDs, do my customers need to have special HDV DVD players?

Also VIDEOMAKER has aspecial issue that recently came out all about HD
From the article it sounds like I’ll have to wait until the world buys HDV DVD players. That’s a real bummer.
meh..what’s the hurry anyway?
Quality stories, producing, and editing will surpass HD every time.
😕 All sounds to me like the drive by media is making everyone WANT something new???!!!! Whether they want it or not…SPEND SPEND SPEND!!! You need it , you want it, everyone has one!!!
Why the big hurry on a "fledgling media" ???
mega-dittos Jimbo 😉
The funny thing is, alot of people have HD ready tvs but don’t even know it. If you bought a big screen any time in the last 3 years, it’s HD ready. But there is a very small portion of those people who have actually seen HD content on their TV. Cable and satellite providers are helping that by pushing HD content but we’ve got a long way to go.
I read recently that there is a company that found a way to make a player that plays both blue ray and HD DVDs. I’ll have to try to find the article.
I think I read the same article as Endeavor. I read Samsung is working on a laser that supports both and there are already some third rate companies just stacking two drives on top of each other. The biggest problem with the format war is that Sony not only designed Blu-Ray, they also own one of the studios that’s releasing all of the movies on Blu-Ray. Now Warner Bros. is working on their own solution, a triple layer DVD that supports Blu-ray and HD DVD on one side and regular standard DVD on the other side.
Out of curiousity, which format is everyone leaning towards?
I’m shooting 1080ihd and burning to standard dvd, right now.
my hi def originals are stored on hard drives and will wait until the battles over to buy a burner.
I do photography and got into video because we were already delivering photos in dvd slideshows, and seeing the quality of hd on an hd tv convinced me it’s the future.
