Report downplays EVD's chances According to a report by market research firm iSuppli, the Chinese Enhanced Versatile Disc (EVD) will be facing quite a few obstacles before turning into a high definition format to be reckon with.
Competing HD formats, such as Blu-Ray and HD-DVD, are about to enter the market -- both of which will probably prove to be worthy players in the field. Blu-Ray and HD-DVD are both backed by consumer electronics giants while EVD has no such backing. Then again EVD can easily survive on domestic markets alone.

Another problem EVD will face is obtaining a subtantial catalog of movies to offer to the markets. It's quite difficult selling players to a market with little content. It is also uncertain whether or not EVD players will support HD-TV output. A high definition format without HD output would be quite silly.
