BMG Vocalizes Support For DVD-A Format But Not Releasing Titles Yet  Print E-mail

Contacts inside of Bertelsmann Music Group (BMG) deny rumors that they are soon releasing any DVD-Audio titles from their prolific roster of artists of expansive back catalog.

Ileane Santana of BMG’s Corporate Publicity Department said "BMG does support the DVD-A format but there are no titles to be released yet. Its just all rumors – so far."

Their comments come the day after Universal Music Group announced that they would be releasing some titles in the competing SACD format.

The uncertainty among the music companies flows through to consumers who are weary about making investments in new DVD-A or SACD players, new receivers or AV preamp with the necessary 5.1 analog inputs, more costly cables and last but not least an entirely new collection of music software.

The trenches are being dug for this audio format war with the most obvious victims being consumers. Both formats are far superior to the Compact Disc in terms of resolution and surround sound. While it is early in the game the music industry has billions of dollars to gain if they can resell their back catalog as they did starting in 1983 with the Compact Disc.
