BBC: HD DVD camp implodes

The emerging story of CES so far is the seeming implosion of HD DVD. After the defection of Warners to rival Blu-ray camp, the format – backed by Microsoft and Toshiba – is left with just Universal and Paramount as the only major studios to support the hi def disc.

The HD DVD camp turned a crisis into a disaster when it cancelled its scheduled press conference at the show and then – perhaps unsurprisingly – cancelled all media interviews at the show. It's left observers with the impression that the HD DVD group is in disarray and on the verge of collapse.

The story is too old to be commented.
