Last week there were rumours that the porn industry mainly supported HD DVD but according to DailyTech this isn't true:
DailyTech decided to clear the smoke surrounding the format war issue by speaking with Steven Hirsh on his plans for both high-definition formats.
DailyTech was originally told that Vivid plans on supporting both formats, with the company’s first Blu-ray and HD DVD release on March 28, 2006 to be Debbie Does Dallas…Again, which conflicted with the original Heise report.
When asked if there would be any content or quality differences between the releases, we were told that “the quality of the two releases should be the same. We believe, however, that Vivid is not only the first to offer a movie in both HD DVD and Blu-ray formats, but also the first to offer in these formats with multiple angle options.”
However, not all of what Heise printed is invalid. Hirsh did note that Vivid has encountered hurdles while producing adult entertainment for Blu-ray more so than HD DVD.
Hirsh says Sony is somewhat trying to prevent porn from appearing on the Blu-ray DVD format by not giving adult movie companies any assistance in authoring or replication of their content on Blu-ray.
