Those of you that are readers of The Digital Bits, surely are aware of the industries move to introduce High-Definition DVD to the consumer marketplace. This introduction of a superior DVD format comes with the usual wranglings between several major manufacturers (Sony and Panasonic; Warner Brothers; Toshiba) who are geared to start yet another format war which only results in the consumer being hurt. Home Theater Forum has joined in a campaign alongside other Home Theater/DVD websites to urge all these companies to come together, sit down, and decide on ONE HD-DVD FORMAT. If they don't do this, we as consumers will be faced with at least three separate formats with any one's future uncertain. It is the opinion of this forum that the TOSHIBA format is the best format on the table. It uses the blue laser technology, is backward compatable with today's DVD standards and it promises to be home recordable. But we urge you all to read the articles posted on THE DIGITAL BITS about all 3 proposed formats. The articles are available here: http://www.thedigitalbits.com/#mytwocents http://www.thedigitalbits.com/#hdwar Also.... We would like to create a UNIFIED WEBPAGE that will act as an official website for our campaign. This website should not only list the specifications of all three currently proposed formats, but should urge these manufacturers to break their barriers and come together to create ONE HD-DVD FORMAT. If anyone out there is interested in putting together a webpage please email: [email protected] So far, www.dvdsite.org has volunteered to host the campaign page. As you can see, there are no egos here from site to site -- just people that want to get a message out. Any website that wants to join in this cause should copy the above banners and post them on your website. We also welcome discussion in this thread. It is very important that this discussion helps all of us to come up with ideas of how to further promote this campaign. The Internet has a voice. If we don't encourage manufacturers to introduce the next generation of DVD as a single format, all of us are going to suffer. Please discuss. Please help.
