    Singulus says Blu-ray take-up faster than DVD
    Mon Jun 9, 2008 3:05am EDT

    FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Singulus received orders for 21 Blu-ray dual-layer
    machines in the first quarter and said on Monday the figure showed the new
    technology was being adopted faster than its predecessor, DVD, 11 years ago.

    "This means that the orders for Blu-ray in the first year of the dual layer
    technology already by far exceeded the volume at the start of the DVD eleven
    years ago with 17 machines," Chief Financial Officer Stefan Baustert said.

    The German optical disc equipment maker added in a statement that it had
    received additional orders for Blu-ray dual-layer machines this quarter and
    said a key U.S. customer had accepted one of the machines for the first
    time.

    The adoption of Blu-ray was for years held up by a format war with rival
    technology HD-DVD, but a decision by Hollywood studio Warner Bros. early
    this year to support Blu-ray exclusively effectively decided the issue.
