Gerry Kaufhold, an analyst with In-Stat, said that if Blu-ray makers include the technologies requested by HP, it would further put the ball in Blu-ray’s court. “The PC industry can play an active part in pushing High Definition forward if Blu-ray includes these items,” said Gerry Kaufhold, an analyst with In-Stat.
