New DVD Format Approved

New DVD Format Approved:
NEC and Toshiba's HD-DVD has been approved as the next generation standard for DVDs.

This standard will store five times more information than current DVDs, allowing them to place "High Definition" content on the DVD, rather than the "Standard Definition" content that DVDs currently have.

NEC and Toshiba's consortium beat the Blu-Ray consortium to get their product approved by the DVD Forum. Both NEC and Toshiba plan to sell computers with the new model drives in the near future (2005).
