TeamXbox discovers VMD; gets over-excited

It looks like someone pointed TeamXbox to the "been around for a while" VMD format. Apparently, HD gets appended to the beginning of it to let us know that it's serious.

As a reminder...EVD/VMD uses multiple layers with a RED laser. This is why the players are multifuctional and under $200 right out the door. If memory serves correctly, they use up to 10 layers at 5GB each...1080p is supported and they are plenty capable of anything that HD-DVD and Blu-ray can do (whether they have the rights is another matter).

It just shows how these companies are ripping us off. Unfortunately, VMD isn't likely to go far since it has no studio support (HDCP support not required, which they won't like).
