You can always count on DVINFO...

Thanks to all for the many perspectives driving this new wave. DSE, did you mean CRTC? I'm not sure what the federal mandate is up here, but as always our movement will be in lock step with the rest of the broadcast world.

From where I view this, I know of nobody currenty streaming dvi to their sets from wmv-hd content. But it's nice to be ready. I'm going to need 3 cameras to switch over and I'm having a hard time staying with an sd only option at present. The whole notion of creating a product with no way to deliver it to the customer really seems to be putting the cart before the horse. Remember DIVx? Analagous from a new tech standpoint. Sure they have a legion of tech oriented followers, but mainstream ... I don't think so.

Time to start practicing for 16x9 aspect. Luckily the viewfinder I have been peering through for the past 6 years is action safe ... should be a quick study.

.
I'm not sure what you mean by "remember Divx?" They are very much alive, and are licensing to hardware. Their biggest problem is the studios see them as a vehicle for pirates in the past and are having a hard time overcoming the stigma. Nero on the other hand, hasn't taken very long for acceptance. And if Microsoft had held true to their announcement of NAB 2003 when they announced WMV licensing to hardware, we'd be there right now, but for various reasons and excuses, they chose to stay proprietary after licensing to two companies.
will we have a mainstream solution in a year? Likely not, only because it will take a couple years for there to be any depth in the consumer market for players. But we know that this is where it's going. Might as well get used to it if the investment is insignificant, and for the cost of HDV, I consider that relatively insignificant. 3 cameras cost less in total than a low end HD cam....plus glass.

Regarding Canada, I don't know how far along they are in DTV-T, as they called the transitional period going into DTV. I've not monitored what's happening up north.

Gotcha. I suppose ultimately, the viewing end-user customer will have the final vote. From codecs to components, the end-play will have to include an agreed upon standard from the big electronic developers. To ask the public to once again purchase a new disk player isn't a stretch when a major leap forward occurs, but to have to endure a red vs. blue laser issue is certainly unpalatable.
