DVD International has issued full specs and an October street date for the Blu-ray release of its HDScape library of scenic high-definition titles.

Released earlier this year on HD DVD, the eight-strong HDScape catalog will make its Blu-ray debut on October 30, making good on DVD International's recent pledge to support both high-def formats.

The titles included are: 'Antarctica Dreaming,' 'Exotic Saltwater Aquarium,' 'Fireplace - Visions of Tranquility,' 'HDWindow - Hawaii,' 'HDWindow - The Great Southwest,' 'Serenity - Southern Seas,' 'Stargaze II,' 'Visions of the Sea,' and the value-priced compilation disc 'Blu-ray Sampler.'

Each title will be presented in 1.78:1 widescreen and 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video. Most of the discs will also boast a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround (48kHz/16-bit) track, except for 'Exotic Saltwater Aquarium' and 'Fireplace,' which will be Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround only.

There are no extras, nor any other bonus features unique to the Blu-ray releases.

Retail is $24.95 each, except for 'Blu-ray Sampler,' which is being offered for $6.95.

You'll find disc details for the entire HDScape series linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where they now reside under October 30.
