Blu Ray Vs. Hd DVD

By: cashing_in


The best it can be described is a technical knockout, however; to elaborate, it’s the victory of Blu-ray on HD DVD as per the media reports. The recent declaration of Toshiba Corporation also stands a proof; the organization’s latest decisions are regarding putting an abrupt halt to their researches, developments and manufacturing of HD DVD players and recorders, though their after-sales services on their HD DVD products shall continue. Toshiba caught on the recent trend with this decision and looking at the present volatile FMCG market, the decision seems wise. But what lies at the prime that made HD DVD - an affordable storage for high-quality and high definition content – suffer such an early death? Especially, when the world is looking forward to a digital convergence between consumer electronics and IT?

According to Mr. Atsutoshi Nishida (President, CEO, Toshiba Corporation), Toshiba assessed carefully the benefits and losses that being a part of the high-resolution format can incur; the prompt decision of the company heads are expected to aid the market to develop. But high definition content is still an untapped zone; with Toshiba’s ability and expertise, there is absolutely no qualms regarding making digital convergence the real thing.

However, to stay competent in the market, Toshiba’s researches shall be going the way of a wide range of technologies; this shall be done to introduce newer high definition content to the mass-market. NAND flash memory comes first in this regard followed by small, form-factor hard disk drives and generation next CPUs; the list also seems to stretch towards visual processing, wireless and several higher-end encryption technologies. But it shall take time to declare the announcements officially; for now, we only know that Toshiba has stopped pushing HD DVD players and recorders to retail channels from March 2008 onwards. Volume productions, too. But then again, there awaits a large number of people for HD DVD disk drives for their PCs - mostly gamers – so how is Toshiba going to meet the customer requirements? A simple answer is: Through the HD DVD drive-integrated notebook PCs. This, according to them, is what the future market demands.

The curious may also pose another question and that’s regarding the standard DVD, to which, the answer is a plain YES on the affirmative. Toshiba seems OK with the idea of continuing the production of conventional DVD players and recorders, but it seems to be covering a bitter taste with a sugar coating because Toshiba, as a member of the DVD Forum, cannot just bid a goodbye that suddenly. However, we, the consumers shall think it to be a blessing in disguise for the membership of the company with DVD Forum is going to make Toshiba maintain collaborative relations with other companies (Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, Microsoft, Intel, and HP being a few), which shall allow Toshiba to make further advancements and utilize the newly-gained knowledge in the DVD and media duplication fields.
