Sony May Unite Blu-ray Disc, HD-DVD

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:20 am

After more than a year of touting Blu-ray Disc as the best technology to replace DVD for storing high-definition video, a top executive at Sony, one of Blu-ray’s major backers, has opened the door to the possibility of unifying the format with its arch rival, HD-DVD.

“Listening to the voice of the consumers, having two rival formats is disappointing and we haven’t totally given up on the possibility of integration or compromise,” Ryoji Chubachi, Sony’s president-elect, said at a news conference Thursday in which he discussed the company’s performance and future strategy.
