Default VMD.. cover art inside, impressive! Hi-Def Digest add another tab for VMD?

Here are some cover art for titles released on that little new HD format VMD.
Strange thing is that they have titles from Fox, Disney, Universal, New Line, Paramount, Weinstein and Lionsgate.
Of course nothing from Sony

There are titles that aren't even avalible of Blu or HD!
All titles are listed being 1080p and list at $17.49!

Are the titles shipping? I was going to suggest that the smackdown forum was losing its relevance. It looks like there is more to discuss!

The website states a "Buy Now" next to each title and they all seem to see for the same $17.49

I have two formats now. Nothing wrong with having three. It's viewing the movies that is important to me.

Here's a little info...

Technical specifications

Disc format

The format uses approximately 5 GB per layer [2], similar to standard DVDs. The larger formats come from adding more layers. Whereas DVDs hold up to 2 layers per side, standard VMDs can use 4 layers, for 20 GB of storage. There are also reports of 8- and 10-layered versions which can hold 40 and 50 GB, respectively. [3] The manufacturer list up to 20 layers on a disc being possible in the future. [2]

The Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD formats use blue-violet lasers, rather than VMD's red laser, which means they can store more information per layer. However, those formats have so far only utilized 1- and 2-layered versions. In May 2005 Toshiba announced a triple layer HD-DVD (45gb). In January 2007 they announced the capacity would be 51GB. There has also been discussion of experimental 4-layer versions some way ahead. Therefore, a standard 4-layer VMD stores 20 GB which is comparable to a 1-layered HD DVD (15 GB) and 1-layer Blu-ray Disc (25 GB).

Content format

The HD VMD format is capable of HD resolutions up to 1080p which is comparable with Blu-ray and HD DVD. Video is encoded in MPEG-2 and VC-1 formats at a maximum bitrate of 40 Megabits per second. This falls between the maximum bitrates of HD DVD (36 Mbit/s) and Blu-ray (48 Mbit/s). There is the possibility that VMD discs may be encoded with the H.264 format in the future.[1]

The HD VMD format supports up to 7.1-channel Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS audio output, though it will not offer Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound codecs.
