One of the things I want to see is already happening: pressure on Universal. See the Variety article in another thread.
These events have traditionally been a sounding board for dealers to tell the studios what they want. The last two were filled with criticism of the format war.
This is a crazy situation. We have DVD sales falling. One large rental chain has gone bankrupt, another is shutting stores. Many indie stores have shuttered.
People are buying HDTV like crazy, cable and satellite are adding literally 100's of HD channels, downloading services are springing up.
So what does the industry do about a new HDM format? They have a format war that has adoption stuck at under 2%.
I would hope that the studios (in particular Universal) would hear this message this week, loud and clear.
