Toshiba and fellow Japanese technology company Memory-Tech have developed the obvious successor to DualDisc: a disc that incorporates both DVD and an HD DVD playback surfaces.
Unlike DualDisc, which mounts a regular CD on the back of a DVD Audio disc, the Toshiba/Memory-Tech system uses a dual-layer structure so both formats can be played off one side of the disc.
Great news if HD DVD is the home theater movie format of the future. Consumers would be able to purchase the higher quality movies, but still watch them on their current DVD players until they upgraded their equipment.
