High Definition FVD players appear in Taiwan


The first FVD-enabled players have been showcased at consumer electronics exhibitions in Taiwan.

The format has been designed to be a more affordable alternative to the blue laser formats.

The first-generation FVD (Forward Versatile Discs) uses 650nm red laser. It has 1280x720 pixels of HD-TV resolution. A single side single layer disc can hold capacity 5.4 to 6.0 GB. It also uses Microsoft WMV-9 video compression technology to store up to 135 minuets of high-definition programs. Other features include movie/still menu selection and picture-in-picture display. It then ends up with superior display quality and navigation functions that current DVD standard is unable to achieve. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is also adopted to provide a robust copy protection mechanism.

The format has been jointly developed by ITRI and Taiwan Advanced Optical Storage Research Alliance (AOSRA), an organization made up of 29 Taiwanese optical storage companies. FVD was formally launched in Taiwan on March 28th, 2005. The first FVD players will be on the market in Taiwan in May for about $175 USD and will include 10 FVD movies.

ITRI stated that the aim is to produce at least 100 HD titles on FVD, and that the R&D is progressing on recordable FVD technology.

In addition, FVD is backed by DPHI, Inc. Based in Boulder, Colorado, the owner and developer of the DataPlay micro-optical storage system has announced that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding in which they agree to joint cooperation and development on future versions of FVD including 120mm versions and a small form factor version.
