Four Hollywood film studios have just announced their intention to release feature films on the high definition D-VHS platform. The studios have opted to release their films on an optional system within the D-VHS format, called D-Theater.
Created by JVC specifically for copyrighted, prerecorded content, D-Theater provides a state-of-the-art level of security demanded by content producers in the digital era. Artisan Entertainment, DreamWorks SKG, Twentieth Century Fox and Universal Studios are expected to release the first D-Theater titles in 2002. The support of these major content providers marks the next phase in the acceptance of high definition as the new standard for home entertainment and television viewing.
