As it stands right now there will be two high def DVD standards. One is HD-DVD and the other is Blu-Ray.
People prayed that the powers that be would choose one standard for HD DVDs [not to be confused with HD-DVD] but they did not. So now we are headed for the good old Beta vs VHS days [for those old enough to remember that].
We jumped on the HDV train fast but outside of hooking our cameras up to an HDTV, we have to wait for affordable HD DVD players and burners. Then we have to pick the one “standard” that we hope will be the last one standing.
I could be wrong but I doubt the market will support both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray.
Pick the right one and you win.
Pick the wrong one and you’ve lost many dollars and a lot of time.
Are we having fun yet?
