Toshiba and LG share optical disc patents

Kevin C. Tofel

We're not sure if we'll see HD-DVD players integrated in to HDTV sets like LG has done with hard drives, but you never know. What's even more interesting about Toshiba and LG sharing optical disk patents is that Toshiba has an HD-DVD player coming soon, while LG will be one of the first to market with a Blu-Ray player. Is this the beginning of the end for the Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD format war or do these two figure they can work together in both markets and come out on top? Both companies claim the deal is to help bring products to market quicker, but the interesting aspect is that neither of them states which specific products. Any thoughts, speculation or rampant rumors out there?
