China Announces Own HD DVD Standard: CH-DVD

The Optical Memory National Engineering Research Center (OMNERC), a laboratory dedicated to optical disc research at Tsinghua University, announced yesterday the CH-DVD (China High Definition DVD). This standard is based on HD-DVD (high definition DVD) and is a big blow to the competitor standard Blue-Ray.

"The realization of CH-DVD was supported by the Chinese government, and will pave the way for the localization of blue-laser, high-definition DVD in China." Take note: this is not Blue-Ray.

CH-DVD adopts copy protection technology that is supposed to prevent the spread of pirated copy.
