Default Re: A New HD format from Sim2, better than Blu-ray?

Reports indicate that Sim 2, a manufacturer of high end home theater projectors is set to launch its own HD disc which it claims is better than Blu-ray. Interesting stuff, but obviously market experts are sceptical about its arrival and performance.

Sim2, manufacturer of high-end home theater projectors is set to launch a new HD disc which it claims is "Better than Blu", a reference to the industry-backed Blu-ray Disc.

The announcement was originally made at the CEDIA event last week where the manufacturer said the launch would occur in January in conjunction with Entertainment Experience. Entertainment Experience currently makes high-end home theater systems which are basically top of the line HP PCs with Entertainment Experience software that the company says offers picture quality better than 1080p Blu-ray discs.

The new system will be bundled with Sim2 projection TVs but there has been no word on price yet.

EE has said that it will be offering movies in the format, and from major studios, for $40 USD and on double-sided dual-layer DVDs with a capacity of just over 16GB.

The manufacturers NEED to recoup some of their HD investment for the short term. It's ok to pay a little more early on in a format's life cycle. If companies couldn't make money, they wouldn't invest in the formats that make our high-def HT possible.
Nice post !!! I agree with you , thanks for sharing useful information in this post..........
