Default HP backs both rivals in DVD horse race

Hewlett-Packard has announced it will support both contenders to be the next generation of DVDs, a change of tack that could raise the chances of an expensive format war.

The computer maker had previously been a staunch supporter of Sony-backed Blu-ray technology, which is competing with HD DVD to be the high-definition disc format adopted by gear makers and movie studios. Credit & More Information: CNet News

Friday's move represents the biggest victory for HD-DVD since Microsoft, the world's biggest sofware company, and Intel, the world's biggest computer chip maker, threw their support behind that format in September.

HP said its decision to support both standards would put the company in a "better position to assess true development costs and, ultimately, provide the best and most affordable solution for consumers".

HP warned in October that a failure by the Blu-Ray Disc Association (BDA), the consortium behind the Blu-Ray standard, to adopt two technologies tied to HD-DVD could prompt the company to change allegiances.
