Press Release: HD DVD Adult Titles

High Def Home Entertainment (HDHE) announces the first adult HD DVD titles, including the original “Deep Throat.”

HD DVD is the first of two new High Def DVD formats coming to market this year, with players due out at the end of April, starting at about $500. The other format, Blu-ray, is not due out until September and could be priced as high as
$1,500 to start. Both offer higher data capacity, enhanced security features and interactive menu capabilities, as well as of course High Definition playback.

HDHE’s initial HD DVD releases will include three formats on two discs. Disc One includes standard definition (NTSC), playable on any regular DVD player, along with a High Def version using Windows Media 9 – playable either on a PC
(at least approximately 2.4GHz) or one of the already-existing but little known “WMV/HD” High Def DVD players (priced as low as $250, but still offering full
High Def quality output!). Disc Two is the new HD DVD format, playable only on the new HD DVD players, but soon also playable through a PC-based HD DVD software
player from Microsoft.

The original and infamous “Deep Throat” will be among four releases the first month, followed by monthly releases of additional adult HD DVD titles. These first titles were recently released without the HD DVD version disc, and HDHE
will continue to offer titles either with or without the HD DVD version (at a slightly higher price when included).

The HD DVD-included version will also feature a new box cover design to help identify High Definition titles. Likewise, HDHE is planning in-store merchandising and an up-coming promotional tour to key stores around the U.S. to show off High Def and help explain it to customers. Much confusion exists in the HDTV marketplace, and a brewing format war between competing High Def DVD technologies isn’t making
it easier for consumers. As adult content has helped to bring new technologies to the masses in the past, it may again become a mainstay of the new formats.

Other than Deep Throat, which was shot on film, HDHE titles were all produced using professional-grade High Def cameras, rather than the “mini” HDV-type cameras as many other adult companies are using - which offer considerably lower quality.

HDHE and production company High Def XXX are also working with Hotmovies.com to soon offer a dedicated adult High Def downloads website. With network-attached devices, such as the High Def DVD players or even an XBox / 360, these will be
viewable on an HDTV as well as directly on the computer monitor. A full press release on this will be forthcoming.

HDHE has been responsible for most of the adult High Def DVD’s on the market to date, and continues to push the forefront of technology.

HDHE also will soon be releasing mainstream High Def DVDs with similar multiple-format offerings.

Hope it's better than the first DVD release, and uncut- most copies are missing a few seconds at the beginning before the music starts.

Don't forget Pirates was released on HD-DVD a few months ago.
"Did you know that more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature? I read an article once. Lower temperatures, people are easy-going, over 92 and it's too hot to move, but just 92, people get irritable."

No, that was a DVD with WMVHD material. Pirates should be out on Blu-ray later this year.
