To the delight of content providers and consumers everywhere, Sony and Toshiba are in discussions to create a common standard for next-generation DVDs, possibly helping to avert yet another format war. Sony's Blu-ray technology is facing off against HD-DVD—backed by the DVD Forum, of which Toshiba is a key member—to succeed the current DVD format and provide additional storage capacity. Both companies seem to understand the importance of a single format and are now actively engaged in discussions to combine the best features of both formats to create a common format. The companies have reportedly begun briefing content providers on their plans for a unified standard.
