A Blu-ray production plant based in Spokane, Washington is looking forward to increased production with the high definition bout finally decided. As HD DVD called it quits, the newly built production plant, which was built to also produce HD DVDs, standard DVDs and CDs, is hoping to be a 24 hour operation in due time.
An article from the Spokane Journal of Business interviews BluRay Technology’s CEO Erick Hansen. Hansen said “Toshiba Corp.’s decision last month to discontinue its competing HD DVD format ended a fierce battle over high-definition DVDs, and likely will accelerate demand for the Blu-ray discs that the plant here will produce mostly.”
BlueRay Technologies claims to be the first U.S.-owned-and-operated producer of Blu-ray discs. The $12 million plant recently opened in June of 2007.
