51GB HD DVD Approved

20 Nov, 2007 By: Chris Tribbey

The DVD Forum, which oversees industry standards for DVD and HD DVD, approved the triple-layer, 51GB HD DVD on Nov. 15, paving the way for it to be used for home entertainment.

However it's still not clear whether the high-capacity discs will work on existing HD DVD players. A Toshiba representative of the HD DVD Promotional Group said in October that the new disc, which holds one more GB than rival format Blu-ray Disc, may require a firmware update for existing players.
