I had very encouraging comments of intention from Kaleidescape at CES regarding BR/HD DVD adoption.


It seems as soon as the LG dual format hd-dvd and BR rom transport becomes available they are going ahead with it.


This is also supported by the announcement that release version 2 of vista will support multiroom Blue Ray and HD DVD playback.


This was very encouraging, Hitachi also promised a TB HD.

that would be great


however in spite of LG's announcements there is still some doubt a dual format player will actually come to market

I think he's talking about the dual-format drive/transport. That could still go forward even if the standalone player does not. Presumably Kaleidescape could build a media reader around that.

The Next Generation of Optical Storage

LG Electronics offers flexibility to consumers in the next generation in optical disc drives. The GGW-H10N is compatible with both Blu-ray Discs and HD-DVD formats. The Super Multi Blue drive is compatible with Blu-ray Disc, DVD, CD read/write and HD-DVD-ROM (read), offering consumers with the most universal unit available.


The GGW-H10N can record up to 50GB of data, equivalent to 4-1/2 hours of high-definition video or 22 hours or standard definition video (on a dual layer 50GB BD-R/BD-RE recordable media). Surpassing the market standard, LG is providing a 4x recording speed of Blu-ray Discs, which means that it takes only 23-24 minutes to burn a full single layer BD-R disc (25GB), compared with 46-47 minutes for conventional 2x recording.


The product will be released during the first quarter of 2007, priced under US $1,199. The core technologies of Super Multi Blue Drive are Optical Pickup* technology, which supports Blu-ray disc write/playback, HD DVD playback and DVD/CD write/playback, as well as the system controlling the Optical Pickup securely and effectively. All of these are LG's proprietary technologies.


The LG-developed Optical Pickup is the world's first device supporting both Blu-ray disc write/playback, HD DVD playback, which proves the company's unsurpassed technology in the optical storage field.


Super Multi Blue, also available from LG Electronics in the first dual-format high-definition disc player (model BH-100) available in early 2007, is expected to end customers' confusion caused by the format war between Blu-ray disc and HD DVD and promote the growth of next-generation DVD market. (See separate news release.)


*Optical Pickup: The device reading and storing data by converting the code of the light reflected by an optical disc to electric code.


A New Level of Security

Using SecurDisc software co-developed with Nero, LG Electronics' new Super Multi DVD Rewriter with Security Function meets the demand for enhanced features to enable secure data protection and content access control when writing data on CD and DVD formats. While some optical disc drives support password encryption as the only security function, LG Electronics' new drive with Security Function offers multiple features to protect a disc at the user and storage level:


● Password Encryption - Protects user data against unauthorized access through password protection

● Disc Creator Authentication - A digital signature is applied to all data to allow recipients to verify data authenticity

● Integrity Checker - Detects altered data through checksums to verify data integrity and readability

● Data Insurance - Increases data reliability through redundantly stored data


LG's DVD Rewriter with Security Function provides both professional and private users with the means necessary to protect and share data securely.

It would be interesting to see K's implementation this time. Because MMC/MC would not necessarily be free and not every disc is created equal for that purpose. It doesn't seem to be a hassle free process unless K choose a completely different route.

Hello everyone,


I actually had a chance to speak with a MPAA representative about Blu-ray & HD DVD copying & playback from hard drive during CES. In short, it should be available with Vista's implementation of the "Managed Copy" function. Consumers will be able to backup a limited number of copies of their content onto media centers, and then play them back. It's really more of a political challenge than a technical one.


As long as the negotiations are on-course, and the details can be ironed out, it should be available in Vista SP2.


Sincerely,

Steven Cheung

If you have media stations through out the home you will not be aloud the stream the data. Playback will be limited to the one machine that performed the burn/back up.

I hope they come up with a work around for this.
