Universal to Release on Blu-ray Disc
In some not unexpected news, Home Media Magazine is reporting that Universal Studios will now start releasing titles on Blu-ray Disc.
After the announcement from Toshiba that they will discontinue HD DVD production, Craig Kornblau, president of Universal Studios Home Entertainment, made the following statements:
"While Universal values the close partnership we have shared with Toshiba, it is time to turn our focus to releasing new and catalog titles on Blu-ray."
"The path for widespread adoption of the next-generation platform has finally become clear. Universal will continue its aggressive efforts to broaden awareness for hi-def’s unparalleled offerings in interactivity and connectivity, at an increasingly affordable price. The emergence of a single, high-definition format is cause for consumers, as well as the entire entertainment industry, to celebrate."
