Onkyo Ends HD DVD Production, Will Do Blu-ray

Blu-ray is on tap, as Onkyo says that its R&D teams have a development program in place for the format.


Onkyo, one of the few manufacturers of HD DVD products besides Toshiba, will end its development and production of the format, the company announced Thursday.

The company, which announced support for the format at CES 2007, says it has sold about 2000 players. Its decision came after Toshiba's announcement to officially stop producing and marketing HD DVD.

Onkyo's HD DVD players were manufactured with parts from Toshiba, making continued production more difficult.
