    New Medium Enterprises (NME) revealed the world's first low-cost True High Definition solution utilizing today's Red Laser Technology.

    HD VMD is a true HD format with 1920 x 1080i/p resolution, up to 40 Mbps bit rate playback (Compared to 36 Mbps for HD DVD and 48 Mbps for Blu-ray), DVD up-scaling so users can watch their existing DVD collection and achieve premium picture quality through their HD TV monitors. HD VMD holds up to 30GB on a single side. The HD VMD player is suitable for playback on all HD-capable display devices and will support existing optical disc formats: CD, DVD (DVD 5 & DVD 9). HD VMD players also feature Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and all region codes for greater film viewing flexibility.

    ML622 and ML777 HD VMD players are the first high definition video players to output true 1080p. Utilizing the Sigma Designs EM8622L chip set these two players will output the native 1080p resolution from the disc rather than adding a second conversion process by breaking it down to 1080i and de-interlacing back to 1080p.

    High-performance graphics acceleration, multi-standard audio decoding, advanced display processing capabilities, and HDMI/HDCP output round out its multimedia capability. With state-of-the-art HD performance and up-conversion for Standard Definition DVD playback, the HD VMD Player is also competitively priced far lower than the other major HD formats.

    HD VMD is currently being adopted by content providers and distributors in more than a dozen regions worldwide, including Australia, Brazil, Central Europe, China, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Japan, Scandinavia, Middle East, Russia and the United States.

    New Medium Enterprises' 1080p set-top players, which use the HD VMD format, will go on sale on Amazon.com and in stores such as Radio Shack and Costco for around $150--about half the cost of the least-expensive 1080p HD DVD player, and perhaps a fourth the cost of the least-expensive Blu-ray player. The movies that work in them are similarly inexpensive.

    Microsoft supports HD-DVD

    Now the format i would love to see and maybe in 5 to 10 years if everything doesn't move too flash style storage for movies and such is this
    Holographic Versatile Disc - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Normal HD-DVD disc is 15gb normal Blu-ray is 25gb the starting line for the HVD Disc is only around 1.6TB (1638GB approx for those of you who don't want to do math) Per Disc.

    the VMD is basicly a runner for todays tech and its a hell of allot cheaper but it only stores 20GB per disc normally. good and bad but with all the annoying shit with the 3 formats in the states right now i dont want a damn 4th.

    Rather intresting this development is. Impressed I am. Depending on how good it is, should put pressure wipe out Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. Also, good timing.
    Firmware History-
    1.0>1.5>2.71>3.11>3.50>1.5>3.40 OE-A
    Thanks to all who worked on 3.5 downgrader, you saved a PSP brought on the first day!

    I read this a few days ago on pcworld.com. Kudos for bringing it here.
    Its too late unless they plan on some insane advertising stunts. People are already wary of comitting to blu-ray or hd-dvd and dont need a 3rd one thrown in the mix. If this had been out a while ago it would have won the war by now.
    Very funny....not.

    maybe ps8 will use it? seems a bit to much. i think theyd mainly just be used to back up computers and that type of stuff.

    I curious as to how a HVD would hold more than blu-ray. Green light has a bigger wavelength than blue light, so they can fit less spirals on the disc itself. I'll have to read the whole article.

    From what i understand two lasers one guides the other laser but the other laser guides it, and it stores information in the form of light i guess maybe like a prism (how no idea) instead of physical pits like all other disc's.

    so its more like 3 dimension storage instead of old 2d pits and stuff? That sounds cool.
