Samsung Electronics said on Friday it will launch a dual format high-definition (HD) optical disc player in time for the holidays.

In the battle over competing HD disc formations, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (Seoul, Korea) has been in the Blu-ray camp. Now it will launch the Duo HD player BD-UP5000 to support HD-DVD and Blu-ray disc formats and their interactive technologies, HDi and BD-Java.

Samsung was not the first to announce a dual-format player. LG Electronics announced such a player at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2007. The announcement was widely seen as a victory for consumers, many of whom have delayed investing in HD disc players, and the pricey discs themselves, until they saw a resolution to the issue of incompatible formats.

Ron Sanders, president of Warner Home Video, said the Samsung dual-format player will help reduce consumer confusion and buyer hesitancy about HD media. "This is an innovative product that can move us closer to mainstream consumer adoption of HD technologies."
