DVD Forum approves Apple music format for DVD Audio

In addition to what I said before, I read that the DVD Forum approved mandatory use of AAC (Apple's music compression format) for DVD Audio, as well as approving the new HD-DVD standard. That's "High Definition", not "harddisk"! HD-DVD allows for a new physical construction of DVDs with upto 15 GB in a single layer, using a blue laser.
"HD-DVD was developed by NEC and Toshiba and uses discs of the same thickness and size as today's DVD products. That should make it much easier for disc manufacturers to re-tool production lines to churn out the new discs. That contrasts with Blu-ray, HD-DVD's biggest rival, which has different layer widths, and requires new production lines to be installed."
