Default HDScape to Bring Library to Blu-ray

Okay, maybe it is not on the level of Universal announcing Blu-ray support, but DVD International has announced today it is bringing its entire HDScape scenic library to Blu:

Expect the same titles that are on HD DVD ('Visions of the Sea,' 'Antarctica Dreaming,' etc.) with comparable quality.

Any chance of "Digital Video Essentials" on Blu-ray? It's not on the list but Joe Kane uses DVD International for distribution of the HD DVD version.

DVD International has announced that Joe Kane's 'Digital Video Essentials: HD Basics' will be coming to Blu-ray on October 30th. 'DVE: HD' is the follow-up to the award-winning 'Digital Video Essentials' disc which assisted new DVD owners in calibration of their displays. Now, Joe Kane returns to assist new Blu-ray owners with calibration of their high definition displays.

This release is different than the 'Digital Video Essentials' disc which was released on HD DVD earlier this year, and will feature new interactive menus. While the experience appears slimmed down from previous versions, this disc actually features more content than ever before.
What a co-inky-dink!

HDScape™, which is already the most popular line of scenic high definition discs on HD DVD, is bringing its unique programming to Blu-ray Disc, in large part, due to the great demand from the Blu-ray community. The Richard Diercks Company, Inc. (RADCO) has been selected as the authoring house for all of the Blu-ray titles, it was announced.

“Since its inception almost one year ago, HDScape™ has become the premier source for scenic high definition content that turns any HDTV into a beautiful work of art.

Included in the HDScape™ Blu-ray library is the top-selling HDScape™ Sampler Disc (SRP $6.95), which has been a constant best seller since its HD DVD release in early 2007. Featuring samples from the entire HDScape™ lineup, the Blu-ray version of the HDScape™ Sampler will differ from the HD DVD version in that it will not contain a standard definition side.
