Toshiba Announces Discontinuation of HD DVD Businesses

Company Remains Focused on Championing Consumer Access to High Definition Content

TOKYO--Toshiba Corporation today announced that it has undertaken a thorough review of its overall strategy for HD DVD and has decided it will no longer develop, manufacture and market HD DVD players and recorders. This decision has been made following recent major changes in the market. Toshiba will continue, however, to provide full product support and after-sales service for all owners of Toshiba HD DVD products.

HD DVD was developed to offer consumers access at an affordable price to high-quality, high definition content and prepare them for the digital convergence of tomorrow where the fusion of consumer electronics and IT will continue to progress.

"We carefully assessed the long-term impact of continuing the so-called 'next-generation format war' and concluded that a swift decision will best help the market develop," said Atsutoshi Nishida, President and CEO of Toshiba Corporation. "While we are disappointed for the company and more importantly, for the consumer, the real mass market opportunity for high definition content remains untapped and Toshiba is both able and determined to use our talent, technology and intellectual property to make digital convergence a reality."

Toshiba will continue to lead innovation, in a wide range of technologies that will drive mass market access to high definition content. These include high capacity NAND flash memory, small form factor hard disk drives, next generation CPUs, visual processing, and wireless and encryption technologies. The company expects to make forthcoming announcements around strategic progress in these convergence technologies.

Toshiba will begin to reduce shipments of HD DVD players and recorders to retail channels, aiming for cessation of these businesses by the end of March 2008. Toshiba also plans to end volume production of HD DVD disk drives for such applications as PCs and games in the same timeframe, yet will continue to make efforts to meet customer requirements. The company will continue to assess the position of notebook PCs with integrated HD DVD drives within the overall PC business relative to future market demand.

This decision will not impact on Toshiba's commitment to standard DVD, and the company will continue to market conventional DVD players and recorders. Toshiba intends to continue to contribute to the development of the DVD industry, as a member of the DVD Forum, an international organization with some 200 member companies, committed to the discussion and defining of optimum optical disc formats for the consumer and the related industries.

Toshiba also intends to maintain collaborative relations with the companies who joined with Toshiba in working to build up the HD DVD market, including Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, and DreamWorks Animation and major Japanese and European content providers on the entertainment side, as well as leaders in the IT industry, including Microsoft, Intel, and HP. Toshiba will study possible collaboration with these companies for future business opportunities, utilizing the many assets generated through the development of HD DVD.

The current 18 board members (as of January 2008) are:

A Paciência é uma virtude.

Vê lá tu, que o DVD começou a ser comercializado em 1996, e em 2000 quando saiu a PS2 por 500 €, era o leitor de DVD mais barato do mercado ;)

O BluRay saiu à um ano, e neste momento já existe pelo menos um leitor mais barato que a PS3. Esse leitor custa 299 €, a PS3 custa 399 €.

Pode-se dizer que o Blu-Ray está a evoluir de uma maneira muito, mas muito mais rápida que o DVD evolui.

Os aliados da Toshiba é ke falharam, se a Microsoft tivesse adiado o lançamento da X360 pra meter o HD DVD, ainda conseguia lançar a consola uns meses antes, fikava com uma media com mto mais capacidade, a consola ja podia ler filmes de alta definiçao, e com o tempo de espera ainda resolviam os problemas da propria X360.

Por isso na minha opiniao um dos culpados da fraca prestaçao do HD DVD continua a ser X360. Que continuando assim até ao fim do ano ainda perde pra PS3

ghost_matrix as duas vantagem que a X360 tinha, era o facto de etr saido mais cedo e ser mais barata.

E mesmo assim, no mesmo periodo de tempo a PS3 vendeu mais 1 milhão de consolas que a X360.

Agora imagina que a X360 saia mais tarde e mais cara, +/- ao mesmo preço da PS3.

Sem essas vantagem, era melhor nem ter saido.

E nota-se agora, que bastou o preço da PS3 cair(mesmo assim mais caro que as concorrente), para vender mais que a X360.

A brincar a brincar, mas o nome Playstation vale.

A Microsoft por acaso fez a jogada certa, era a única que tinha se quisesse que a X360 tenha sucesso.
