Razor Digital Announces Blu-ray Support with Quartet of IMAX Classics

Africa: The Serengeti

Indie distributor Razor Digital has announced it will throw its hat into the high-def ring this fall, exclusively supporting Blu-ray with an initial launch slate of four IMAX classics.

Arriving in stores November 13 will be a quartet of IMAX favorites: 'Africa: The Serengeti,' 'Alaska: Spirit of the Wild,' 'Australia: Land Beyond Time' and 'Antarctica: An Adventure of a Different Nature.'

Citing Blu-ray's larger installed hardware base for its exclusive support of the format, Razor Digital said they have no current plans to release on titles on HD DVD, although they didn't rule out the possibility.

"You have to respond to the marketplace," Mitch Perliss, Razor Digital EVP told Home Media Magazine. "We wanted to go worldwide (with the product), and we couldn't afford to do both (Blu-ray and HD DVD)."

Razor Digital has not yet released tech specs or supplemental details for its four IMAX launch titles, but we'll keep you posted.

Retail price will be a suggested $19.95 each.

In anticipation of full specs to come, we've added all four of Razor Digital's IMAX titles to our Blu-ray Release Schedule under November 13. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
