The recent fall out between Sony and Toshiba highlights the issues facing the entertainment industry in regards to emerging formats. Presently, record companies are aggressively releasing new and catalog content on the DualDisc – a format which is basically a CD and low volume DVD glued together.

Although the DualDisc has been early to market and compatible with all existing players from car stereos to PCs, the weakness to this product is that it holds limited video content (60 mins approx). It will soon face competition from far more sophisticated formats such as the HD DVD and Blu-Ray discs.
