ADV Films To Release Hi-Def Anime DVDs

...Sort of.

Right now, there are a couple of competing standards for the high-definition successor to DVD and nothing is on the market yet. In the meantime, Microsoft has come up with a pseudo-standard: hi-def DVDs that can be played on a PC and on a handful of special DVD players.

ADV Films has taken an interesting step and decided to release three of their titles in this new format: Noir, RahXephon, and Full Metal Panic.

Keep in mind that these releases are pretty meaningless unless you want to watch them on your PC monitor, or you have a high definition television and a special Windows Media High Definition DVD player in your living room. Having said that, I'm really curious about these and plan on checking them out. These should look absolutely fantastic.
