Official: Toshiba to get in on Blu-ray Disc

Wanna be in your gang, your gang, etc, etc

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Toshiba has asked the Blu-Ray Disc Association (BDA) if it can join the gang, a move it specifically stated paves the way for the introduction of Toshiba kit supporting the HD optical disc format.

The one-time driver behind the HD DVD format stressed that it remains committed to the delivery of digital content on a variety of media, including DVD and SD card.

But "in light of recent growth in digital devices supporting the Blu-ray format, combined with market demand from consumers and retailers alike, Toshiba has decided to join the BDA", it said.

Toshiba also said that it aims to introduce digital products that support the Blu-ray format, including BD players and notebook PCs integrating BD drives, in the course of this year.

Rumours that Toshiba will release a BD player by the end of the year surfaced last month. ®
