The meaning of life part 1

Saturday, April 14th 2007 Seoul, Korea April 13, 2007 Samsung Electronics Co. , LTD. , a leader in consumer electronics and digital media technologies, and the first company to introduce a Blu-ray disc player will introduce a dual format High-Definition HD optical disc player in time for the holidays. Samsungs Duo HD player BD-UP5000 will fully support both HD-DVD and Blu-ray Disc formats and their interactive technologies, HDi and BD-Java. With the Duo HD consumers can enjoy additional studio content such as trailers, directors comments, more elaborate interactive menus and behind the scene footage. The new Duo HD joins Samsungs next generation DVD line-up the meaning of life part 1 includes Samsungs second generation Blu-ray player available at retail this month. Together, these two models offer the consumer a strong line of High-Definition players to match Samsungs award winning, and best selling, line of HDTVs. Wednesday, April 11th 2007 The AACS Advanced Access Content System is the standard of decrypting HD content of HD DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. The implementation of AACS into both HD disc formats is the target of hackers throughout the whole world and it seems the HD DVD is not that secure as its inventors wanted it to be. Its encryption got hacked utilizing a flawed mechanism inside a special WinDVD version by members of the well known Doom9 Forums some time ago. When the company behind AACS, the AACS LA, reacted and prohibited the playback of HD DVDs using the aforementioned WinDVD version, the hackers found another way to get to the important data. This time a hacker called xt5 took advantage of a common unmodified Xbox 360 HD DVD drive Toshiba SD-S802A. He was the meaning of life part 1 able to get a so called Volume ID out of the disc using this drive. With this Volume ID one could get access to all the neccessary keys needed to play a HD DVD movie. You wont need a software like WinDVD anymore. In order to fix this problem the AACS LA could add all external Xbox 360 HD DVD drives to their black list Revocation List, no owner of such a drive would be able to play back a HD movie with it except hackers of with above stated knowledge of course. Another solution would be to release a new firmware update for the Xbox HD DVDs but it would be only a matter of time until the next clever chap finds a solution for that. Fastmac today announced the first only Blu-Ray optical drive upgrade for Apples PowerBook, iBook MacBook Pro computers. The new slimline, slot loading drive uses one of the fastest most compatible Blu-ray mechanisms to provide up to 50 Gb of storage on 1 disk, without sacrificing compatibility with standard DVD CD recordable media. Fastmacs Blu-Ray optical drive upgrade is scheduled to ship within 10 days and is available for pre-order from for a special introductory price of Each drive carries a 1 year warranty and a 30 day money back guarantee. Wednesday, April 4th 2007 Consumers are already torn between choosing Blu-ray and HD DVD for their high definition format, but thats only the surface competition. If you dig a the meaning of life part 1 deeper, you can find that there is another battle commencing between HDMI and DisplayPort, two different interface standards. Although HDMI seemed to the main choice among manufacturers, DisplayPort 1 has now been approved which could reignite the competition, giving yet more trouble for people moving to high definition. The main improvement of 1 is that it boasts High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection HDCP version 3, however groups backing HDMI still argue that HDMI can still do everything that DisplayPort can and more, urging manufacturers to stick to HDMI. But with the backing of large companies such as AMD, NVIDIA, HP, Lenovo and Samsung, DisplayPort wont be defeated too easily, and consumers could have some more HD headaches still to come. DisplayPort could well become the replacement for DVI among graphics card companies, whilst HDMI looks to have control of the TV based market. Although Blu-ray is still quite fresh on the shelves, owners of Blu-ray players may be concerned about news that the Blu-ray specifications are set to change this autumn. Although these players should remain adequate for general viewing, changes to BD-Java specifications mean that current devices may not be able to take full advantage of interactive features, including picture-in-picture. Unlike HD DVD players, many of the Blu-ray players dont all have Ethernet ports to let users upgrade the firmware, so users could be left stranded it isnt even clear if those that can take advantage of firmware upgrades will be compatible with the new specifications. Manufactures have confirmed that new disks will still play in first generation players, but early adopters may still be disappointed that their expensive hardware has become out-dated so quickly. The Inquirer noted that Slysoft promised its customers that their software would be able to remove Blu-ray Digital Rights Management DRM software by the end of this quarter. It seems that the people at Slysoft have not only done this, but accomplished their goal an entire month ahead of schedule. AnyDVDHD version 0 adds more than just true Blu-ray support. It also promises to run on Windows Vista and XP x64 along with all the other operating systems it supports. The free upgrade also removes region encoding. Now it seems that the only problem people will have with upgrading their PCs to support high-definition optical drives is affording the drive and Slysoft AnyDVD HD.
