Zero Tolerance to Release <i>Girlvana 3</i> on HD DVD

CHATSWORTH, Calif. - Zero Tolerance is the latest adult studio to embrace HD DVD technology with the August 7 release of director Mike Quasar's Girlvana 3.

"We're releasing the HD DVD version simultaneously with the standard DVD," company rep Dom B. told AVN. "We’re coming out with two versions – the standard DVD comes in a big box, and the HD DVD comes in a smaller case which will contain both standard and HD discs inside."

Dom told AVN that the company chose Girlvana 3 as its first HD DVD release based on the title's high production values.

"All three of our labels [Zero Tolerance, Third Degree and Black Ice] have been shooting in HD for a while," he said. "We shot Girlvana 3 back in January and discussed putting it out in HD at that time. The movie is just like the other two in the series; they’ve been bestsellers, small vignettes with beautiful girls, beautiful locations, nice lighting. People are worried that they're going to see pimples and warts with hi-def porn, but this one has a really glossy, high-end, look like the Discovery HD channel.

Girlvana 3 features a bevy of porn beauties including Francesca Le, Tory Lane, Nikki Benz, Stephanie Swift, Audrey Bitoni, Puma Swede, Rebeca Linares, Annette Schwarz, Holly Morgan, Lena Nicole, Abbey Brooks, Riley Evans, Amber Rayne, Mikayla, Franchezca Valentina, Regan Reese and Zoe Britton.

Sister label Third Degree will release Mike Quasar's Dreamgirls as its first HD DVD title in September. The vignette-based title featured Adam & Eve contract girl Carmen Luvana as part of a behind-the-scenes tradeoff -- in return for Luvana's services, Zero Tolerance allowed its contract girl Courtney Cummz to appear in Adam & Eve's Eden.

"For now, we will probably just use HD DVD for our special titles, maybe two or or three a year until the market for high-definition really picks up; then, we will do it all the way," Dom said.
