Samsung pursues LG with hybrid HD movie player

Samsung hybrid HD player

Following in the wake of LG's BH100, the first hybrid Blu-Ray/HD DVD player, Samsung has announced its own, the Duo HD (not pictured). The principle difference will be the Duo HD's support of interactive features for both Blu-Ray and HD DVD -- the BH100 is only fully compatible with Blu-Ray software. Samsung's player should be on the market before this year's Christmas shopping season, though exact prices and dates remain up in the air. Hybrid technology is meant to address one of the central concerns of buyers, which is the potential obsolescence of their format within a few years.
