discontinued optical disc format

HD DVD, also known as High-Definition DVD, was an optical disc that is able to store large amounts of data, such as high-definition videos. Now, the HD DVD type is now considered dead. The disc was released in 2006 and fought a format war with rival Blu-ray. On February 19, 2008, Toshiba abandoned the format,[1] announcing it would no longer make HD DVD players and drives. The HD DVD Promotion Group was dissolved on March 28, 2008.[2]
