LG and Warner Seek to End the Blu-ray/HD DVD War

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  January 4, 2007


A while back we reported that Ricoh was working on a optical mechanism that could handle both Blu-ray and HD DVD discs. At next week’s CES show, it’s expected that two companies will be showing off their proposed solutions to dealing with the incompatible formats.

Blu-ray vs HD DVD

On the hardware front, LG is expected to announce a combo player that can play both formats. Conversely, Warner is planning on rolling out dual-sided discs that feature Blu-ray on one side and HD DVD on the other. While I think the Warner idea is kind of a nice short-term solution for movie studios that otherwise would have released on both formats, the LG approach of a universal player that can handle both formats seems like a better choice for consumers.
