IFA 2006: Blu-ray content for personal video players and Blu-ray recorders on their way


The Q and A session at the Philips/Fox press conference at IFA today threw up a couple of interesting snippets.

Firstly while Philips gave details of a Blu-ray recorder for the PC it also said that a Blu-ray recorder for the home TV was a strong possibility. CEO Rudy Provost said that the company was monitoring the market and would respond to demand and that a Blu-ray recorder was something it is considering.

Meanwhile Fox’s Mike Dunn told the gathered hacks that Fox was very keen to enable users to take Blu-ray content and port it on to personal video players. Dunn said that this was ‘very important to its consumer proposition.’
