D-Theater (2002 – 2004)

D-Theater was a short-lived digital video cassette format for playback of movies in high-definition.

It is based on the D-VHS (Digital VHS) format, and is effectively a pre-recorded version of it. However, D-Theater is incompatible with D-VHS decks without the D-Theater logo. It was introduced in 2002 and supported by four film-studios, as it provided much better video quality than DVD, at a time when Blu-Ray and HD-DVD were yet to be introduced.

The last film available on D-Theater was ‘I, Robot’ in 2004.
