Most inovative use of Technology - HD DVD U-Shop feature (Internet purchase ability), Universal Studios Home Entertainment
These's awards are kind of suspicious to me because of the purpose of the group - which is as follows "Home Media Magazine delivers news, analysis, market research, product reviews and marketing updates to give studio executives, retailers, distributors, technology providers, marketers and suppliers of ancillary products and services a one-stop resource to help grow their businesses and increase profits" This is about money and the ability of studios (in which Blu-ray has the most) to make money and increase profits. I would like to put the acadamy award winning Happy Feet (best animation - yes better than Rat) Blu-ray against HD-DVD, or better yet the top 7 dual format dvd's against one another.
This is all spin. I enjoyed watching Meet the Robinsons in 480p - because it played! I enjoyed it in blu-ray until it stopped working! My wife said the SD version is better because it works (and I can upscale it to 720p via my PC no problem). They all look lovely, but who's the real winner - DVD - it's killing both formats right now.
