Sonopress Ready for HD-DVD
"We are actively processing orders for HD-DVD. The first discs are produced at our site in Weaverville, USA, while authoring takes place in Gütersloh. We will soon be ready for production in Gütersloh as well", says Hans-Peter Hülskötter, CEO Arvato storage media.
Authoring for this high-resolution format is technically very demanding and requires the work of specialists. HD-DVD offers numerous new possibilities such as fading in a second video with the director's commentary for a running film.
High Density Digital Versatile Disc (HD-DVD) can be produced with a single storage capacity of 15 GB or a dual layer storage capacity of 30 GB. HD-DVD is based on a 405 nm wave length blue-violet laser. The thickness of both disc halves is 0.6mm and identical with the thickness of a DVD.
