Toshiba shrugs off blow

-

Toshiba Corp. executives had a tough moment yesterday when they had to face reporters just two days after its HD DVD movie disc format was dealt a potentiall­y fatal blow by the defection of Warner Bros. Entertainm­ent to Blu-ray.

“We’ve been declared dead before,” said Jodi Sally, vice president of marketing for digital audio and video at Toshiba America Consumer Products. Sally indicated that Toshiba would continue its fight with a Sony Corp.-led group to dominate the market for a replacemen­t to the DVD.
