DVD-Download Licensing Begins

The logo that just months ago brought confusion to the internet is now going mainstream, sort of! The DVD Forum is now beginning to issue out licenses for the DVD-Download technology through the groups licensing division, the DVD FLLC.

Previously a license was only available for single layer CSS managed recording, the group now allows those interested to license out the tech for dual layer discs. With the license firms are able to produce, drives and discs capable of reading dual layer discs with the download tech implemented. A license allowing the production of Dual Layer recorders is also in the works with no set release date.

Confused as to what DVD-D is? Don’t worry, we are too!

The DVD Forum was previously behind the DVD and HD DVD technology and is currently supporting the CBHD venture.

    I can see this as being useful to make DVD’s I can take in the car (whose car has Blu-ray yet?), but not for much else.
