No future for Blu-ray recorders, admits Panasonic

October 4th, 2007 · No Comments

Blu-ray recorders are unlikely to make it out of Japan anytime soon. So says Fumio Ohtsubo, president of Panasonic parent Matsushita. Speaking at this week’s Ceatec tech show in Japan, he confirmed that he said the future for non-Japanese lies in the form of players and not recorders.
Matsushita’s senior managing director Toshihiro Sakamoto added the HD format war was already over in Japan. “There’s no question about it.” However, Sakamoto conceded that this Christmas will prove a critical one for the format outside of Japan.
