I felt especially embarassed for the booth promoting the FVD red-laser video disc, a Taiwanese "alternative to DVD." Unlike HD-DVD and Blu-ray, which increase the storage of standard-sized optical media by three to five times, FVD increases the capacity over DVD a whopping 15 percent to 5.4GB per layer.

Don't worry, though! FVD can support high-def resolutions up to 1080i—with a hardware upscaler.
