Ever heard of Moser Baer
? We hadn't till we found out they were shipping their blank HD DVD's to OEMs.
Apparently this company is the world's second largest manufacturer of optical media discs and occupies a 18% market share. The company is recognizing that optical media is in a transition phase and is moving towards high-def. The company does plan on producing Blu-ray media as well. We just assume that the HD DVD got shipped first due to the fact that HD DVDs can be produced on the same production lines as normal DVDs.
