HD DVD still in the lead

"Significantly ahead" according to HD DVD promotional group


The North American HD DVD Promotional Group today announced that HD DVD is "significantly ahead" in the dedicated consumer electronics player market.

The group claims HD DVD players currently have a 60 per cent maket share and that 75,000 HD HVD movies were sold in the last week of May alone.

In the same week, consumers spent 5.2 million on HD DVD and Blu-Ray products, a 31 per cent increase on the previous record.

"Behind the increase in sales for hardware and movies, you're seeing fundamentally lower manufacturing costs and ease of authoring for HD DVD," said Craig Kornblau, chairman of the group.
