HP to support HD-DVD and Blu-ray

— 1:50 AM on December 19, 2005

HP has decided to support both next-gen DVD formats. The PC giant has supported the Blu-ray format for some time, but now appears ready to join the HD-DVD group, as well. HP recently convinced the Blu-ray group to add support for mandatory managed copy to the specification. However, and attempt to get iHD interactive features added to the spec has been unsuccessful. The HD-DVD spec currently supports iHD, and that may be why HP has decided to support it. For now, HP will support both the Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats. The company hasn't actually announced products based on either, though.
