China and Taiwan want their own DVD standards. At CES 2007 in Las Vegas companies presented EVD and HD-FVD, which both use red instead of blue lasers like Blu-ray and HD DVD.
Picture quality is blindingly good, better than Blu-ray, on level with WMV-HD and HD-DVD

The HD-FVD (High Definition-Forward Versatile Disc) standard has a capacity of 5.4GB for the single-sided, 9.8-11GB for the dual layer and interesting 15GB for the triple-layer version.

Of course, the standard comes with its own DRM protection system dubbed AES.
AOSRA, the body behind the standard made a presentation during CES, showing first HD-FVD players and media on the market. Ritek is currently manufacturing HD-FVD mediums, while player was manufactured by EDL.
