Once an ex-employee at the Greek pioneer told me that ld was far superior than anything else and that the industry wanted to make a fast food format easy to produce with low cost and with expiration date like dvd.he didn’t meant only ld as it was at the time but it’s potentials.lets be honest with a 12 inch disc you could make miracles back then like having a 1080i signal on the early nineties.

I wish he would do part 5 soon as I am really interested in his take on it.

Wow I'm probably the only poster here who knows what you're talking about.

DIVX... they tried!

Of course, little they knew that Warner US would re-invent the DIVX format by... releasing HD-DVDs that rot quite fast!

My first DVD player was a RCA RC5231Z DIVX player from Circuit City. I got it when DIVX was done and got some titles free in the mail: Lethal Weapon 4, Stargate, Six Days Seven Nights, Stepmom and Lost in Space

Very nice of him to thank our too early departed Disclord for the MUSE explanation.

I think there's only one bit he left out: HDVS on LaserDisc (might be the 3rd SONY 24mn/side Recorder he described).

But since it was not a retail format, it didn't have to be included.

I find it incredible that Pioneer's laserdisc recorder pre-dates CD-RW. I'd like to know if it was phase change or magneto-optical. I'd heard of it before but always thought it used the Sony CRV discs. Its interesting to think how LaserDisc would have turned out if it was component based. :roll:
