    September 6, 2005

    Seeking to cover its bases, consumer electronics giant Samsung said Tuesday it will introduce a DVD player next year capable of playing both the Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats if the backers of the two competing standards fail to agree on one technology for next-generation DVDs.


    For the past three years, Sony-backed Blu-ray and Toshiba-backed HD-DVD have been in a war over what next generation of blue laser DVDs will reign supreme when it comes to high-definition content and greater storage capacity.

    “We would welcome a unified standard but if this doesn’t come, which looks likely, we’ll bring a unified solution to market,” Samsung President of Digital Media Choi Gee Sung told the Financial Times Deutschland.


    “It won’t be simple but you’ll see our solution in the coming year,” he added. “Consumers will be too confused otherwise.”

    Samsung has backed the Blu-ray format. But if it were to develop a dual-standard player, it could capture both sides of the market, which appears to be split between Blu-ray and HD-DVD.
