Blu-ray & Porn: Small News Could Have Big Impact In Format War

Infodisc is Europe's first independent Blu-ray Disc manufacturer - why is this so significant?

It's been described as a "key milestone" in the Blu-ray Disc's strategic roadmap. Recent news that Infodisc has come online as Europe's first independent Blu-ray disc manufacturer may be shrugged off as dull industry blurb by those not realising the implications of this development.

It is in fact very significant, and in time, will have an effect on the consumer, as well as possibly the entire format war on our continent. This news means that the Blu-ray disc market in Europe has been opened up to the independent sector - as all other disc producers prior to this were owned by, or tied into, the big movie studios.

Just as recent news from Japan reporting a relaxing of the "rules" about adult content for Blu-ray was seen to be a major marker in the Far East fight for Blu-ray dominance, this could likely be seen as the same for the HD platform in Europe.

It's an old, and possibly tired argument, that porn went a long way to help the VHS format in the previous home cinema format war, but giving Blu-ray that blue edge in Europe could ultimately impact numbers.
