Warner backs Blu-ray format

By Derek Sooman on
Warner Bros. Entertainment has said that its home video division will release DVDs in the high-definition Blu-ray format. Warner, who had previously committed to making movies available on the rival format HD DVD, have made the move after the two camps failed to reach agreement on a unified format.

'These latest developments are the categorical shift needed to avoid a format war and insure the successful launch of Blu-ray and secure the future of high-definition pre-recorded media,' said Mike Dunn, president, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. 'The real winner in all of this will be the consumer as a single format comes to market with the dominant support of both the hardware and software industries.'
