I will argue that DVD is the epitome of digital quality. I believe that HDTV and bluray quality is completely fake and it actually blurs images from time to time. DVD quality is real, not fake.

My opponent states that his quality looks good. But there's a problem. This is not an isolated complaint. This is a common complaint. Bluray creates on TV shows and movies what appears to be a soap opera effect. Now here's another problem, while films and TV shows are filmed digitally, they are never filmed on high definition cameras. Why is that? Because there has never been an inherent need to do so. What bluray does is that it makes a movie have a plastic feel, not a genuinely digital one. The picture quality is completely plastic. As for the sound it's kinda exagerrated. Let's put it this way: most blurays look like they are pirate copies of films, except... they are not filmed in a theater, but have the actual motion picture or movie intact. But bluray looks like a pirated film in quality.

uh no actual most pirate films are blurry and on blu ray you can do so much more. In February 2002 a group of nine leading electronics companies formed what is now known as the Blu-ray Disc Association. The Association's primary aims are to develop and promote the Blu-ray standard. Since then the Association has grown to more than 250 supporters.
A Blu-ray Disc (BD) is very similar to a Standard DVD (SDVD) in shape, size and construction and similarly is particularly well suited for the distribution of feature films. BDs are designed to be the successor to the SDVD format in response to a need for increased disc capacity. Blu-ray Discs have over 5 times the storage capacity of SDVDs as well as increased data transfer rates making them much better suited to the storage and playback of high-definition video.
The name Blu-ray is trademark of Sony Corp. and is derived from the blue color of the laser used to read and write BDs."High capacity storage of video and data " Up to 9 hours of high definition video or 23 hours of standard definition video or up to 50GB of data. This is over 5 times the capacity of SDVDs making Blu-ray discs particularly well suited for the distribution of high-definition feature films.
"1080p high definition video support " Full support for the 1920 x 1080p high definition video standard ensures highest quality video reproduction.
"Uncompressed surround sound " Ensures highest quality sound reproduction
"Increased data transfer rate " BDs spin faster to allow for an increased data transfer rate. A SDVD has a data transfer rate of about 1.3MB per second as compared to the Blu-ray data transfer rate of 4.2MB bytes per second
"Improved interactive features " network and Internet connectivity and enhanced menu navigation help provide a more seamless viewing experience.
"Backward compatibility " Most players support both SDVDs and CDs
"Better scratch resistance " Recent advancements in coating technology have provided for increased resistance to damage caused by scratches
"Well supported within industry " The Blu-ray standard was developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association. Headed by Sony, this group includes many prominent companies within the consumer electronics and computer industries. This helps to ensure the competitiveness of Blu-ray products and more choice for consumers.
"Cost effective " Although BD media currently cost more than SDVD media, the capability to store over 5 times the data on a Blu-ray disc results in a lower cost per GB than for SDVDs.
