    EVD
China's format continues to be revised.
Latest developments add a strong European development partner.

You shouldn't need telling about the Frankfurt show. This is the big equipment one for Europe. Nearly 100 exhibitors signed up so far with the expectation of seeing a quantity of BD and HD DVD manufacturing equipment and materials with a few sales announcements.
Five months is a long time in this industry at the moment, so will all those names signed up still exist by May?
No conference, but a number of manufacturer-led workshops will continue to inform.
So will the industry have got some of its business confidence back by June? The best confidence barometer is going to be the number and the size of the Parties.
 
    FVD

    Why local formats?
 

Both China and Taiwan see a substantial home market for High-def 'DVD'. Rather than be tied to the formats and all the IP costs of BD and HD DVD, they are defining their own format specifications.
