If you’d like a taste of the Consumer Electronics Show, the HD-DVD Promotion Group has set up a tent and semi-trailer packed with Xboxes, laptops and a home theater showing off the new DVD format.
It’s free and open to the public from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Saturday. The setup is between the fountain and the patch of grass that used to the Flag Pavilion.
HD-DVD is a high-capacity format backed by some movie studios, consumer electronics companies and tech companies like Microsoft and Intel. It’s competing with the Blu-ray format backed by other studios and electronics companies, notably Sony and Panasonic.
