Sony dumps Superbit DVD line

January 23rd, 2007 · No Comments

Sony has dumped its high-bitrate Superbit line of premium DVD releases. The Studio says it now wants to concentrate on Blu-ray high definition products. The decision to limit the life of the brand was apparently made back in 2001: “With regular Blu-ray releases there is no room in the market for a standard definition higher-quality format,” said a spokesman, “It was always an interim bridge.”
The Superbit line comprises just 57 titles, and was never a commercial success.
