Competitors and successors of DVD players

Competitors and successors

There are two successors to DVD being developed by two different consortiums: The Blu-ray Disc and HD-DVD.

On November 18, 2003, the Chinese news agency Xinhua reports the final standard of the Chinese government-sponsored Enhanced Versatile Disc (EVD) and several patents around it.

On November 19, 2003 the DVD Forum decided with eight to six votes that HD-DVD is the HDTV successor of the DVD.
