    HVD is way better.

    Capable of 3.9 TB and 1 Gbits/s transfer rate.

    This represents a medium for the future.

    Gaming
    Hard drive replacement
    Removable storage
    Back-up storage

    Won't be near affordable for awhile though.

    Storage media pricing can be fine tuned for multiple markets.

    200 GB disc will be released mid-year.

    Interesting.

    From what I've read about Holographic Versatile Disc technology, it isn't being pursued by near as many
    manufacturers as Blu-ray or HD-DVD. Something key to making new technologies affordable for the masses.

    Most likely HVDs will be used in business environments(similar to SCSI drives)
    and not by average consumers.

    Sadly, for this reason, the cost will be prohibitive for most users.

    I had read an article on the HVDs and I think the movie industry uses them to store raw movies. But releasing to the public would take a while.

    We don't need that much capacity for high definition video right now.

    What we need is a low cost format with a capacity of about 25 GBs for now.

    My vote goes to Blu-Ray.

    The major manufacturers won't skip a technology they will make billions on. Blu-Ray and HD-DVD first. Milk those. Then HVD.

    Different sized discs would be made.

    It's actually better for the consumer 'cause you wouldn't need to change technology.

    Tbh, 25 GB is overkill for high def video.

    Not exactly no.

    I do record alot of hi-def on my TIVO and it isn't even double that of normal res.

    So how does one need to go from 4.7 to 25 GB for hi-def?
    I mean I do know that the need for compression ould be lessened if not eliminated but that's over 5 times the storage space.

    Also different DVD formats can accompany hi-def. However, I don't know the costs involved in the manufacture of multiple layered DVDs.

    Current non Hi-Def movies use DVD-9 Dual layer media not 4.7 GB. With 4.7 you cannot fit a regular length movie with menus and extras without compression.

    High definition DVD will aim to offer 1080 lines of video resolution video compared to the 576/480 lines offered by DVDs today. So 25 GB up from 9 GB is better suited than the 15 GB from HD-DVD.
