First Blu-ray Test Center Opens in China

Engadget reports that the first Blu-ray disc testing facility has just opened up in China, a month after rumors spread that the BDA had granted 11 licenses to Chinese based companies.

CESI Technology has received the first license to open up a plant in China. What does this mean for you the consumer? It means your waiting time for Blu-ray player launches will be reduced significantly once all 11 factories are in full swing.

We wonder how this will factor into the government backed CH DVD program, now their biggest rival is on home territory.

    So we’re about to get a shitload of cheap pirated Blu-ray players from the dictatorial China with a reputation for disrespect for patents and copyright laws?

    Well I guess if it stops this stupid harping about CH-DVD and promotes Blu-ray I guess it is a good thing even if us poor soods in Europe still have to pay ridicolous prices for our hardware thanks to our utterly stupid and tax greedy politicians..

    I don’t know how much this will slow down CH DVD and those other formats since they are all government backed formats.
