Mon - Toshiba's disk format given China boost

Two of China's largest manufacturers of DVD players have decided to make products that are compatible with the high-definition standard developed by Toshiba. This decision gives another lift to Toshiba's standard after Microsoft and Intel recently supported Toshiba's format.

The battle between Toshiba and Sony for next generation high-definition DVD formats rages on, with both announcing support from key segments of the industry. But, the most significant players, the movie studios, remain split.

Mind you, given that cost effective Chinese DVD players dominate the global market, this could prove to be a critical step for Toshiba.
