The convergence of high-definition with the widespread appeal of the DVD format has lead to the creation of the new HD DVD format. The next-generation technology of HD DVD provides an unsurpassed experience in terms of resolution and interactivity. While today’s DVD format has a maximum playback resolution of 480p, HD DVDs leap forward with an image resolution that is up to six times sharper. The result is a visual experience with brighter colors, enhanced details and greater overall image sharpness.
Designed to be a truly interactive medium, HD DVD delivers an unprecedented experience that will change how people watch and enjoy their movies. Available to users are features, such as picture-in-picture director’s commentary and instant scene book-marking, for instant access to a user’s favorite scenes on-the-fly. Unlike today’s DVD viewing experience, many HD DVD interactive features can be enjoyed while the film is being viewed. Additionally, an HD DVD enabled notebook is compatible with all of today’s standard-definition DVD titles, ensuring that a user’s collection of DVD movies is not left obsolete.
