Another Convergence? Or Time To Revise The Model? [8:18 am]

What high-definition will do to DVDs

For Rick Dean, director of business development for digital content company THX, a high-definition future is an exciting prospect.

[...] “There was a time not so long ago when the film world and the video world were two completely separate worlds,” he told the BBC News website.

“The technology we are dealing with now means they are very much conjoined.

“The film that we see in theatres is coming from the same digital file that we take the home video master,” he says.

[...] What high-definition revolution ultimately means is that the line between home entertainment and cinema worlds will blur.

With home theatre systems turning living rooms into cinemas, this line blurs even further.

It could also mean that how we get films, and in what format, will widen.
