HD-DVD set to win format war

In an article by well-respected technical site Projector Central, a thorough analysis was made between HD-DVD, Blu-Ray and DVD. The end result? HD-DVD offers outright better image quality at half the price, whilst Blu-Ray is only marginally better than DVD. This being just one of many points which Projector Central gives to declaring HD-DVD already the clear winner of the format war. The full in-depth article is a highly recommended read for everyone.

Utter crap, Bluray & HD-DVD use exactly the same codecs so image quality will be the same.What will be different goin by the specs of both Bluray & HD-DVD is when they output the image,Bluray output at 1080p while HD-DVD out outputs to 1080i even thou the source was produced at 1080p.Winner Bluray.

Maybe you should actually READ the article?? It answers all those questions you raise. Including why there's no difference between 1080p and 1080i, as 1080p is encoded on the HD-DVD, so it outputs at 1080p. As for the image quality, substantially inferior. Price inferior. Disc capacity struggling to get double-layer. Significantly larger library of movies already and to continue with Studio support.

Blu-Ray is only going to survive like UMD for a while.

Heart-breaking news.

HD-DVD also outputs at 1080p, only Toshiba's first player is lacking 1080p support, but can be updated to do so.

gg - I did read the article and Bluray is by far the better format,it has the best tech,more storage anything up to 200Gb is possible.Bluray also has the most hollywood movie studio support.Bluray will have the biggest libary,don't know how you come to the idea that HD-DVD will have the most that absurd.Bluray isn't struggling at double layer(if it were struggling then why are 8 layer 100Gb possible).If anyones struggling its HD-DVD,with its reading speed/and no writeable media or burners in sight its a mile behind.
