HDScape Adds Blu-ray to its High-Def Menu

HDScape: Visions of the Sea

DVD International has announced that it will bring its entire HDScape library of scenic high-definition titles to Blu-ray disc beginning in late 2007.

Though the distributor has already released its HDScape catalog on HD DVD (an eight-strong line-up that currently includes such titles as 'Antarctica Dreaming,' 'Visions of the Sea' and 'Stargaze'), until now they had eschewed supporting Blu-ray. Now, in a press release out this morning, the company says it will add Blu-ray support by the end of 2007.

"Since its inception almost one year ago, HDScape has become the premier source for scenic high definition content that turns any HDTV into a beautiful work of art. Now is the ideal time to bring our library to the Blu-ray community, so that they can experience just how beautiful high definition artwork can be," said David Goodman, President of DVD International.

The company has not yet announced exact street dates for its upcoming Blu-ray HDScape titles, nor specs or pricing. However, DVD International has confirmed that all of its Blu-ray HDScape will be "recorded and mastered in stunning high definition video," as well as include either Dolby TrueHD or Dolby Digital 5.1 surround audio.

Given this news, we've added all of the HDScape titles to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. We'll keep you posted as more details are revealed!
