Paramount’s Commitment to HD DVD


Paramount Pictures denied a newspaper report that the studio is poised to follow Time Warner Inc. in abandoning Toshiba Corp.’s HD DVD technology.

“Paramount’s current plan is to continue to support the HD DVD format,” Brenda Ciccone, a spokeswoman for Paramount, said in an email today.

Where by “current”, I suspect she means “however long it takes to sell our current stock of HD DVD titles and shift production to Blu-ray”.
