Re: Porn Studios Look to Blu-ray and HD DVD as the Future
As the reproduction medium increases it's ability to accurately reproduce the original movie, the movie production values also increase. We have seen this through the years, early films were quite crude compared to what we 'expect' to see on the screen now.
The adult film industry will increase their production quality as necessary to meet the need of the new Hi-Def formats, content not with standing, that industry wants to entice prospective buyers and renters to take the product home.
I think replication costs are an important consideration too, but in the end they will go with the format that provides the 'best bang for the buck'! (no pun intended ;-) )
Will this genre sway the war, I don't know, but it will have a definite effect.
