Default HD DVD demo Disc "Now Playing"

Hi everyone

I am showing here a very special HD DVD demo disc, called "Now Playing". The creation date is early 2006 - before the format was officially launched. It's only burned on a DVD-R. The disc plays only on a computer, it does not work on any HD DVD player as these are WMV files. Here some pics:









The disc shows the same video files in 3 different resolutions. EDIT:

I have checked the disc last night again and now it's clear regards the 720 to 1080 description:

720_3M = 720i resolution, video running time 3 minutes
720_6M = 720i resolution, video running time 6 minutes
1080_8M = 1080i resolution, video running time 8 minutes (8.56 min.)

You can clearly see the difference between 720i and 1080i. You can also choose between 3 languages. The content does introduce the format and shows the difference between DVD and HD DVD and what HD DVD is/was capable to do.

Bruce, could you please add this demo disc to your master list?

Thanks my friend!

Blerim
