This is an extremely informative and

interesting news story about how one man

seemingly brought DVD to the masses, the

resistance it initially received, and the

direction the format could possibly be heading

It is my personal opinion that as much credit is

due to Lieberfarb and Warner Brothers for the

format's success as it is to the format's demise

thanks to the studio's sloppy handling of television

product and OAR presentation.

Overall, however, this is a story that will

provoke interesting discussion on this forum.

He was also interviewed for a segment on PBS's Nightly Business Report that aired last Friday. Interesting. And in that report, Lieberfarb elaborated on what DVD means in terms of studio profits. The report was upbeat but didn't focus one bit on the primary reason for the format's success: extraordinary picture quality.

Interesting. Do you think HD-DVD will have the same "growing pains"?
