Been 'waiting' for this since 98.
Just remember, the spec won't be ready for 3-4 years, and it will take another 4-5 years beyond that to gett all the studios to approve copyprotection standards. So don't expect to see decks for another 8-12 years. They will not sabotage DVD's current success, especially with less than 1 in 200 persons owning an HDTV
So, does this mean they have abandoned the idea of staying with red laser and using MPEG-4 at a lower bit-rate and using blue laser only for recording HD on DVD?
The statement "to establish a single, best format for high-definition DVD" seems to sound like it.
Does this mean that Chris A needs to revise the petition, or do we not even need it now? I still think it's not a bad idea to let the DVD forum know what we would like to see with HD-DVD, but now maybe it can include all the side issues that have been mentioned in the petition thread without worrying about taking away from the main point (no red laser low bit-rate).
Meanwhile, it should be interesting to see what happens on the Blu-ray Disc front--which is being supported by nine manufacturers from within the DVD Forum.
