You might recognize the name Toshiba as the company that backed the failed HD DVD format in the format wars against Blu-ray. Toshiba's aspirations of being the defacto HD standard came crashing down a few years back.

The company has decided that it has been out of the HD market for movie players for too long and last month we first got wind that the firm was looking to enter the Blu-ray market. Toshiba has now announced that it has applied to join the Blu-ray Disc association.
