HD VMD Holds Event14 Jan, 2008 By: Chris Tribbey
A high-def format group is throwing a celebration party.
No, Sony and Fox aren't renting out a club, and Universal and Paramount aren't taking over a ballroom. You'll have to be a fan of the little-known HD VMD format for this one. And you'll have to be in the Netherlands.
New Medium Enterprises (NME), creators of HD VMD, which has films from Mel Gibson's Icon Productions for the format in the United States, will celebrate the opening of its first major HD VMD replication line at replicator VDL-ODMS' facility in Eindhoven, in the southern Netherlands.
The Jan. 22 event will run from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will feature presentations by the CEO of NME, Mahesh Jayanarayan; an audio and video presentation of HD VMD; product exhibits; presentations and tours of the production lines.
The event is open to press, industry members, trade groups, distributors and retailers. For more information, call +44208749 9955, or visit www.nmeinc.com.
