In case you are looking to save a bit of space, Sony says it will soon launch a high-def LCD TV with a built-in Blu-ray player.
DigiTimes is reporting that Sony CEO Ryoji Chubachi said in a press conference that the company wants Blu-ray to grab 50 percent of the global market share by year’s end—and to make that happen, they plan to release a slew of products at different price levels with compatible disc drives built in.
Sony has been very successful getting the word out about the high-def format via its PlayStation 3. They are planning the same strategy with TVs, PCs, and other devices. Standard-definition DVD currently accounts for 80 percent of disc sales.
The BD-enabled HDTV would be the first TV product to have a built-in Blu-ray player. No prices or launch dates were announced.
