Hi-Definition Discs: A strategic analysis

Summary.... The next video format war - are you wondering what the truth is? This is the first major study to analyse the current video format battle and to assess the potential outcome. The report includes 5 year forecasts with combined sales of the new format broken out for US, Europe and Japan.

Hi-Definition Discs: A Strategic Analysis, the latest report from Adams Media Research and Screen Digest, is the first major industry study of the potential market for high-definition video and the key technology hurdles facing manufacturers. The report assesses the merits of HD DVD and Blu-ray, and forecasts consumer adoption.

IN THE REPORT
Comprehensive Review of Launch and Hi-Def vs. DVD Mix Forecast
This 126-page report is by far the most comprehensive look at hi-def to-date. It includes a detailed description and evaluation of the technologies, as well as the revenue implications for movie studios and other content providers. Among the key issues addressed:

  • Impact of launch on DVD consumer spending
  • Forecast for Hi-Def vs. DVD product mix out to 2010
  • Analysis of HD DVD vs. Blu-ray
  • The impact of the PS3 and XBOX 360 game players on Hi-Def movie sales
  • The impact of the new formats on hardware and software sales and pricing
  • Details of the new format's compression and authoring issues
  • Consumer reaction to the new formats
  • Analysis of copy protection schemes for both formats
  • Manufacturing next generation discs: What are the key issues?
  • CE company strategies: Hardware development and marketing for next generation formats
  • Studio strategies: Who's backing which formats and why?
  • Computer company strategies and their likely impact on deployment

Includes Analysis of U.S. and International Markets
Hi-Definition Discs: A Strategic Analysis includes a detailed analysis of hi-def launch initiatives for the key markets: U.S., Europe and Japan. It includes five-year forecasts for both software and hardware in each of the three critical regions, the fruit of an exhaustive review of the issues by Screen Digest's and AMR's top analysts.

Most Sophisticated Hi-Def vs. DVD Projection Model Available
Included in the report is detailed historical data for video sales in the U.S. Europe and Japan, detailing spending and units bought from 1992 to 2005. In addition, the report contains the most comprehensive forecast data for the existing and next generation video formats to 2010. The projection addresses all the key issues impacting the hi-def future: multi-format precursor technologies, HDMI connectivity, hi-def-enabled game players and, most critically, the potential invocation of the content protection token.
