Tokyo, Japan— High-definition recording has taken a step on the road to fruition, though its adoption of a dominant disc format is still in question. In a press conference preceding the CEATEC electronics show in Japan, members backing the Blu-ray disc format of high-definition DVD recording announced the formation of the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) and welcomed its first member from the content industry, 20th Century Fox. Blu-ray is a DVD-based format that was introduced in 2002. It can hold up to 25GB of high-definition content on a single-layer disc, with the promise of expandability to larger capacities (50GB, dual-layer discs are planned).
