Last vestiges of HD DVD promotion dissolve

HD DVD Promo Group gone

HD DVD has ceased to exist in every formal capacity, an official announcement explains. The HD DVD Promotion Group, a body put together to represent the various companies which once produced HD DVD movies and players, has announced that as of March 28th, it has put a halt to all operations. Its website has been closed, leaving behind a message redirecting companies to the official bodies for the regular DVD format.

While Toshiba effectively handed victory to Blu-ray by stopping production of HD DVD players on February 19th, the format continued to have some lingering support, mainly as a residual effort to help clear out stock; since then, prices on HD DVD titles and equipment have dropped precipitously. At present, any remaining support for the format is generally dependent on individual manufacturers and retailers. [via The Register]
