Default 'HDScape' Series -- pre-release buzz

DVD International has announced they will bring their entire HDScape series of made-for-HD nature programs to Blu-ray on 10/30.

Quote:
Released earlier this year on HD DVD, the eight-strong HDScape catalog will make its Blu-ray debut on October 30, making good on DVD International's recent pledge to support both high-def formats.

The titles included are: 'Antarctica Dreaming,' 'Exotic Saltwater Aquarium,' 'Fireplace - Visions of Tranquility,' 'HDWindow - Hawaii,' 'HDWindow - The Great Southwest,' 'Serenity - Southern Seas,' 'Stargaze II,' 'Visions of the Sea,' and the value-priced compilation disc 'Blu-ray Sampler.'

Each title will be presented in 1.78:1 widescreen and 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video. Most of the discs will also boast a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround (48kHz/16-bit) track, except for 'Exotic Saltwater Aquarium' and 'Fireplace,' which will be Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround only.

There are no extras, nor any other bonus features unique to the Blu-ray releases.

Retail is $24.95 each, except for 'Blu-ray Sampler,' which is being offered for $6.95.

You'll find disc details for the entire HDScape series linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where they now reside under October 30.

i had the sampler disc and imo the quality was rubbish compared to planet earth, with grainy pictures on most the clips, certainly wasnt a disc to show HD to your friends!

Seems that the Fireplace Blu-ray disc won't work properly on PS3 due to an authoring bug. HDScape has announced being in the process of manufacturing a new disc in which the bug will be fixed :

This software defect doesn't affect stand alone blu-ray players.

Bump.

All PS3 Fireplace users see here:

Sorry if it was already mentioned somewhere else.

BTW: When will there be a review of Antarctica Dreaming (Blu-Ray/HD-DVD) on HIGHDEF-Digest? Really looking forward to this for nearly a year.

I've just seen the blu-ray series and it is a winner format. The planet earth was wonderful but I like blu-ray format in most cases, for nature it does give something extra.
