Hardware Manufacturer Onkyo Joins Blu-ray Camp1 Jul, 2008 By: Chris Tribbey
Former HD DVD player manufacturer Onkyo is getting on board with Blu-ray Disc, with plans for a player later this year, the company said July 1.
Specifically tailored to the company's second-generation high-definition receivers, the company aims to do better with its Blu-ray player than it did with its HD DVD player, which reportedly only sold a few thousand units.
Onkyo did not release any further details, including price or other player details.
“It's just an announcement that it's coming,” a company spokesman said. “We didn't release an SRP, model number or photo.”
