Reports came in last week from Heise (English report) claiming that the adult entertainment industry has chosen HD DVD as the format of choice. The aforementioned report, however, conflicted with a DailyTech interview with Vivid Entertainment Group founder Steven Hirsh where the exec stated his company plans on backing both high-definition formats.
DailyTech decided to clear the smoke surrounding the format war issue by speaking with Steven Hirsh on his plans for both high-definition formats.
DailyTech was originally told that Vivid plans on supporting both formats, with the company's first Blu-ray and HD DVD release on March 28, 2006 to be Debbie Does Dallas…Again, which conflicted with the original Heise report.
When asked if there would be any content or quality differences between the releases, we were told that "the quality of the two releases should be the same. We believe, however, that Vivid is not only the first to offer a movie in both HD DVD and Blu-ray formats, but also the first to offer in these formats with multiple angle options."
