THX: Blu-ray almost as dead as HD DVD

Posted on Tuesday, April 01 2008 @ 05:26:15 CEST by


Laurie Fincham, one of THX's chief scientists, claims Blu-ray is toast. When asked about the downfall of HD DVD he said not another disc format like Blu-ray but flash memory will be the future:
“Personally, I think it’s too late for Blu-ray. I think consumers will only become interested in replacing DVD when HD movies becomes available on flash memory. Do we really need another spinning format?” he told the magazine.

“In the future I want to be able to carry four to five movies around with me in a wallet, or walk into a store and have someone copy me a movie to a USB device. Stores will like that idea, because it’s all about having zero inventory. I don’t want to take up shelf space with dozens of HD movies.”

“By the time Blu-ray really finds a mass market, we will have 128GB cards. I would guess that getting studios to supply movies on media cards, or offer downloads, will be a lot easier than getting them to sign up to support a disc format.” he concluded.
