The first HD-DVD player will out this week. I'm hoping that it should/will play HD material[H.264?] recorded on regular DVD-R. [This question should be answered fairly shortly.]

In that case, you can make HD-DVD's right now using your regular burner.[Or authoring with Apple's DVD Studio Pro]

As for Blu-Ray:

Above article states that the Blu-ray media is shipping.

well, i meant the physical format =). i can't burn HD-DVD nor BluRay in the US yet. i believe BR is available in Japan. but selling it in a market where you don't have players is useless. what're people gonna do with a blank disc when they don't even have a BR recorder?

Pioneer BDR-101A Blu-Ray burner will be shipping before NAB!
Were hoping to get our first shipments in by the end of April! The BDR-101A will have a projected street price of $995.

We will begin taking pre-orders for the BDR-101A sometime in early April. For more information on the BDR-101A visit our Pioneer BDR-101A page http://www.videoguys.com/pioneer.html

Here is a cool article from How Stuff Works about the new HD-DVD. It is pretty basic, but that's best for some of us!

nice link, it cleared some things up for me

I think sd dvds from camcorders will show improved quality on new hdtvs played from hd dvd players.
in other words you dont need a hd camera to benefit from hdtv and hd dvd player upgrade.
the analog conversion is eliminated

Hi Jeff,



Its nice to hear from you again. Your timing is good, because were launching our consumer Blu-Ray products this month. Heres some links for the player:

So now that the bd writers are shipping any feedback?

The comments re the Sony drive not being able to play commercial dvd's without a graphics card with the drm support seem to be growing, but is this the case for the pioneer bdr 101a? Maybe Gary at Videoguys has some comments?

Are any of the affordable authoring suites now supporting it, or is it still pretty much data files? Has anyone been able to create a BD dvd and play it back in the Samsung? Anyone been able to try out andy vc-1 on BD?
