Samsung Preparing Hybrid Hi-Def Player8 Sep, 2005 By: Holly J. Wagner
Samsung Electronics Co. plans to offer a DVD player next year that will play both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats if the high-def camps can't get together on a format before then.
Although Samsung is a Blu-ray supporter, the company's head of electronics, Choi Gee-sung, told Financial Times Deutschland, "We would welcome a unified standard but if this doesn't come, which looks likely, we'll bring a unified solution to market. It won't be simple but you'll see our solution in the coming year. Consumers will be too confused otherwise."
