CES 2006: Toshiba HD DVD Players HD-XA1 and HD-A1 Coming in March

Looks like 2006 is for real the year when HD DVD players will be available on the market. Toshiba announced today that the will start shipping the HD DVD players HD-A1 and HD-XA1 in March in the United States.

The new Toshiba HD DVD players HD-XA1 and HD-A1 will have backward compatibility - yippy! What about Blu-ray support? ;)
Both HD DVD players support video compression standards of MPEG-4 AVC and VC-1, as well as MPEG2, both models will utilize the new video decoder chip developed by Broadcom. Of course they new HD players feature HDMI.
Both models feature built-in multi-channel decoders for Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD (2 channel), DTS and DTS-HD. The HD-XA1 employs the use of four high performance DSP engines to decode the multi-channel streams of the wide array of audio formats. Because HD DVD Discs spin at higher revolutions than a standard DVD, accurate mechanical engineering went into the chassis design of both models, says Toshiba. A double chassis construction is employed to add stability and strength against vibrations and the HD-XA1 adds insulated stabilizing feet to provide a steadfast foundation for the device.
The Toshiba HD DVD Players HD-XA1 will retail for $799.99 and the HD-A1 for $499.99 in March 2006.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
