Got this emailed to me from one of my friend's who pulled it from some tech sight (don't know which). I had heard about this prior, from this technology they will be able to release DVD movies that are very high resolution that work only on HDTVs. I don't know details maybe someone else does. I talked to a video enthusiast last year that said he was holding out buying a DVD player in anticipation of the higher capacity DVDs (current DVD can't hold enough information to fit these high definition movies). All in all quite interesting sounding for video and computer use. [b]Manufacturers have agreed a standard for the next generation of DVDs, which will be capable of holding more than six times as much information as existing discs. The Blu-ray disk, so called because it works with a blue laser that operates at a higher frequency than current technology, can store up to 13 hours of film, compared to the current limit of 133 minutes. The new discs can hold up to 27GB of information. Nine consumer technology firms (Sony, Philips, Samsung, LG, Thomson, Hitachi, Pioneer, Matsushita and Sharp) have signed up to the standard. It is hoped that this will avoid a repeat of conflicting approaches that came with the introduction of DVDs in 1996. DVD players which can record and play Blu-ray disks are expected to hit the market between 2003 and 2004.[/b]
