HD images have been around a lot longer than there were TV's that could display them (by very definition, CAD artists tend to work in extremely high resolution and then compress down for viewing, movies are made in the same way these days and have been for a few years now). All it would really take is for the TV manufacturers to catch up (or the people who make projectors as these seem to be a common Home Theatre item these days).

Even still, before the release of Blu-Ray and HD-DVD's, there were Superbit DVD's, which were essentially normal DVD's, but the entire space of the DVD taken up with just the movie, at a very high resolution (higher than most TV's could display at the time) and better sound.
