Adult Filmmaker Chooses Sides in DVD Battle
“U.S. adult film maker Digital Playground on Thursday said it will throw its support behind Sony Corp.’s high definition Blu-ray format, adding spice to the multibillion-dollar standards war raging in Hollywood.
“Sony’s Blu-ray competes with the HD DVD format championed by Toshiba Corp. and appears to have amassed more allies in the next-generation DVD format war — including Apple Computer Inc., Panasonic and the majority of movie studios.
“Digital Playground is the company behind the movie “Pirates,” which has won honors from the porn industry that calls Southern California’s San Fernando Valley home and is estimated to have had 2005 sales of $12.6 billion, according to Adult Video News.”
