OK we have Blu-ray and we have HD DVD.
Is it going to come to where we have to accommodate for both these formats that would be expensive
Blu-ray is the dominant format i think but as Kevin stated people are buying HD DVD players.

I personally think Blu-ray or HD DVD i am leaning more towards HD DVD will fade out .Just take a look at your local blockbuster there are way more Blu-ray discs on the shelves then HD DVD

No matter what format we choose it will die in the future. Be it a blu-ray or hd-dvd or beta....something new is going to come along and everything will change again. my parents wedding video was on 8mm and a few years back they got it transfered to DVD. and i'm sure when DVD is just about gone they will get it transfered to the next medium.

i currently shoot in HDV and edit in HDV. I export the final videos back to a master tape as HDV footage. i deliever to the B&G a Standard Def DVD. I am not even mentioning the option of having your video in HD in the next couple of years or so to the couples yet because its still to wishy washy in my opinion. But, i keep the tapes just in case.

A new delivery format will no doubt come around, but the ATSC standard will be around for decades. The old NTSC standard has been around since the dawn of TV.

My take on this is that we should be prepared to offer HD delivery by any and all means available, since there isn't likely to be a single dominant solution any time soon. But since HD-DVD burners are basically unavailable the only realistic way to deliver content for those players is using standard red-laser DVDs, which requires no new hardware and less than $100 for new software if you don't already have something with HD-DVD support. For Blu-ray delivery you can buy a burner for under $500 now and an upgrade copy of Adobe CS3 for $299 and you're good to go there. All other solutions (e.g. Apple TV) just require being able to render the right delivery format, which at worst involves spending a few bucks for something like Quicktime Pro. So for a little over $1000 you can pretty well cover all the bases of current HD delivery options, and get on with the business of producing HD videos. That's not a whole lot of money in the grand scheme of things...
