Is DVD Done?


Here’s an interesting take from high end Audio mag AV Revolution:

The DVD format is the most successful consumer AV media format ever. In six short years, this magical disc has become the world’s standard for video and audio playback in an affordable, feature laden and convenient package. But DVD and all of its associated formats like DVD-Audio, Dual Disc, could soon have one foot on a banana peel and the other one in the grave.

The reason is that DVD, while a powerful format and currently the king of the AV world, can not (easily) reproduce a movie in HDTV. With DTVs selling at 850,000 sets per month according to a CEA study from April 2004, the demand for high quality content in HDTV from early adopters and new Gen X and Gen Y consumers will get vastly stronger in the next year or two.
