Even as the next generation DVD discs appear and vie to replace the DVD, there are contenders on the horizon that may displace discs altogether as means of audio and video distribution. For high resolution multichannel audio, BluRay and HD DVD offer expansive bit capacity in an easily distributed and secure medium. Yet the rapid evolution of HDTV along with HD infrastructure and networked playback imply a supportive environment for distribution in file-based and streamed versions. This workshop examines the requirements of still evolving high resolution audio formats and the issues facing disc versus electronic delivery. A number of perspectives will be addressed including the availability and uses of bandwidth, DRM and interconnectivity standards, acceptable delivery formats, content creation, and the evolution of public expectations as standards and capability develop for both audio and video.
