If you encode MPEG4 it will not take long and we'll have 1.8 inch high def DVDs, just like UMD or what you call discs in Playstation Portable.

Your Blue-ray player may be locked !

Awww, check this out. The Blue-Ray disc folks want you to have an Internet
connection for media authenticity. In the case of authentification failure,
they'll lock up your player. Yeah, like, I'll buy one of those !

Blu-ray makes unexpected, three-way DRM choice for high-def DVD

Scott M Fulton III

August 10, 2005 - 13:18 EST

Hollywood (CA) - In an announcement last night, the Blu-ray Disc Association, led by Sony, representing one of two competing high-definition DVD formats, stated it will simultaneously embrace digital watermarking, programmable cryptography, and a self-destruct code for Blu-ray disc players.

like everythign else, some clever guy in asia will reverse engineer it and break through the locking codes by hacking the bios of the unit to accept any disc thats thrown in it.. ...

im not too fussed, hell they did it with PS2, which was "unchippable" ... Not to mention the Xbox and even gamecube... whats to stop them doing it for any other unit?

these copy protection schemes DONT work.. when will they realise that? Instead, lower the prices and people WONT NEED to copy

I can't resist.

Ok. How low should the price be ? DVDs can be had for $10 at Walmart if you're willing to wait a few years. New releases cost $20, or $13 if you're willing to buy a used disk.

The price that people wnat to pay is only the cost of the media, although obviously, they're paying more than that right now. I've been through this process with ORIGINAL video material. There is no other source for this material, yet my friends want a copy.

Most of my computer-savvy friends think that all CD-Rs and DVD-Rs cost $0.20/each. When I tell them that the rest of the materials (plastic box, sheet of glossy photo paper, and ink to print on the disk and photo paper) cost me about $3/disk, they don't believe it. This doesn't even
involve the items used to burn and print the disk. DVD-burners and printers
don't last forever.

Great DVD burners are cheap, but a few years ago, I bought my first DVD burner for $400. No one understood why I paid that much money when CD burners were $60. A good photo printer costs about $400 and $100 for ink replacement.

Consumers do not value intellectual property, largely because it is cheap and easy to steal. Air is free. The radio and TV are "free". And, so should be music and movies, the masses think. The record and movie industries kinda dug themselves in a hole when they decided to reduce their own duplication costs.

The only reason a record
industry existed was that personal duplication was prohibitively expensive.
People are currently "paying" for DVDs. The cost is about $4 for a rental,
excluding the cost to transport the disk but including the selection experience.

Pioneer shows Blu-ray DVD burner for PC

Piuoneer shows Blu-ray DVD burner for PC

By Akihabara News Japan

August 29, 2005 - 10:26 EST

Would you believe me if I tell you that there is a Pioneer DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD-+DL and BR (Blu-ray) burner and that it's called BRD-101A? Well, you'd better, and here's the proof! A Korean site (that gets its news from a Chinese site) provides us pictures that this internal PC Blu-ray DVD burner really exists. Noteworthy is that this burner does not support CD's and DVD-RAM's.

Not sure I want to know the price of that DVD recorder. Bleeding edge is never cheap. (That's why it's called bleeding edge. It bleeds your wallet. <g>)

No big suprise as there has to be a factory cranking out millions of BluRay drives for the Sony PS3 and I do mean millions. I'm just suprised by the HD-DVD comment as last I heard they did not even have a final HD-DVD spec.

Ok The article lost me with the $1,000 players. The Sony PS3 will play Blu-Ray with estimates of launch price ranging from $299 to $399 US.

And that's what will help things. I read in OXM (Official Xbox Magazine) the Xbox head in Japan wants the Xbox 360 to play back HD DVDs, but continue to use regular DVDs to put the HD games on...
