Default New Chinese Involvement Could Trigger HD DVD Price Plunge

Hi all. I just read this, not sure if this is common knowledge.



"If ever there were a time for either Blu-ray or HD DVD manufacturers to play a trump card, now may be the time, and this could be the one: A consortium of Chinese university engineers and government officials, in cooperation with a Chinese video standards group that includes globally recognized manufacturers, plus the DVD Forum, have come to an agreement on a standard specification for a blue-laser disc mechanism and format specifically for the Chinese market.

The new group will be called the China High Definition DVD Industry Association, or just CHDA, and this is not the last you will hear of it."


Here's the link for the whole article:

Is this good/bad for us?

Thanks alot of early morning reading. Interesting to say the least. HD media was a way to bring profitability back to home media sales. I would think this basically kills MAJOR CE interest in bring HD-DVD players to market. It is already hard enough to compete with Toshiba's subsidized pricing, if the chinese players come this soon.....I wonder how this affects the BLU Chula announcement from last week.....hmm...
