HD-VMD format boss has faith his system can survive

February 8th, 2008 · No Comments

The man behind what must be the most unconvincing of all current hi-def disc formats, HD-VMD, NME chairman Michael Jay Solomon, maintains that his red-laser HD wannabe disc is a genuine challenger to Blu-ray and HD DVD and can sell 500,000 units globally by the end of the year.
The system claims to be the most affordable HD format available, with a low-cost replication line in the Netherlands able to churn out HD-VMD discs at a cost of one per unit. According to a report carried by US trade magazine Video Business, Solomon says HD-VMD is looking to corner specific market niches: “We want to create a huge Spanish-language library,” he said. “There are not a lot of other (formats) doing that. There is also a huge amount of faith-based content from the mega-churches. We can try to corner that.”
