Digital Playground Bows Its First Adult Dual Layer HD DVD15 Oct, 2007 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Digital Playground Oct. 23 will release Island Fever 4, which is its first dual-layer 30GB HD DVD and the first to offer all special features in high-definition.
The $59.95 sequel, created by the director of successful adult title Pirates, features more than five hours of content in 1080p resolution, 5.1 digital surround sound and includes interactive menus.
Adoption of HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc by Hollywood studios might be filled with backroom deals and intrigue. For the adult entertainment industry, however, the choice thus far has been HD DVD.
There are currently 17 adult titles available in HD DVD, compared to three in Blu-ray.
Vivid Entertainment, which in March released Debbie Does Dallas … Again as the first Blu-ray title, has 50 movies shot in HD and would release them in either format depending on market preferences, according to a spokesperson.
Wicked Pictures in January released blue comedy Camp Cuddly Pines Power Tool Massacre as the first adult HD DVD release.
A recent adult industry poll found that 59% of producers were shooting content in HD.
