In related news, John Lowry, whose company is handling Disney’s new frame-by-frame digital restorations, {{link http://www.dvdexclusive.com/article.asp?articleID=2256 speaks about high-definition DVD}} and says he has picked Sony’s Blu-Ray format as the one of choice due to storage space. However, the level of detail we can expect has yet to be decided, and could cause problems with the amount of interactivity the new discs are expected to deliver. Back to regular DVD now, and the extras for Disney’s Herbie: Fully Loaded disc are starting to take shape, with {{link http://www.dvdexclusive.com/article.asp?articleID=2265&categoryID= this profile}} concentrating on one NASCAR racing tutorial featurette.
