If there has been one technology through 2006 that has been more hyped up and anticipated than any other, it would definitely be high-definition video and its arrival to consumers as the next big thing in TV, and movie watching. While HD quality videos have been available for some time online for movie trailers, etc, the use of higher resolution video has been fairly slow to expand because of the amounts of bandwidth required for high bit-rate movies at 1280x720 or 1920x1080 resolutions. Coming into the summer of 2006 there were two competing formats for a high-definition video disc format for consumer purchase: Toshiba's HD-DVD and Sony's Blu-ray..
Are PCs ready for HD video?
