    Once again the Joe Kane booth dropped a bomshell with Samsung VPOD hard drive 300 GB HDD player for $300 with two more models coming with 500 GB and 1 TB respectively...

    Joe took us on his tour of what he is doing in the Broadcast Industry dragging them kicking and screaming into an all digital HDD based system eliminating the vaunted D5 tape system with 4:1 compression which adds ugly artifacts all the way through the VC-1 encoding process.

    Joe also pointed out the failings of the MPEG 2 encoding and all the interlaced HDTV standards including 1080i ...He wants the Industry to go to full progressive modes..

    He pointed out that VC-1 was superior them MPEG 2 and that MPEG 4 has alot of potential but has issues with Quick View 7 player from apple ...

    This is what BDrom and HD-DVD face as they delay product launch that other technologies ( VPOD ) are motoring by ...

    JK beleives that all BDrom will be good for is a home archiving system

    There was another bomshell at the CEDIA show ( source to remain nameless )
    That Hollywood is considering releasing HD theatrical released movies in full on 1080P HDTV at the same time as they are in the theaters..

    They will be available for download via internet and during theatrical run will rent for $12 for 2 viewings...then after theatrical release is over available for permanent archiving ( BDrom or HDD ) ...

    The future's so bright I got to wear shades...
