8/10/2009 10:00:38 AM Eastern

Irvine, Calif. - Toshiba America confirmed today it will enter the Blu-ray Disc market later this year with a home player.

The company confirmed its plans in a one-sentence press release:
"To meet the increasing consumer demand for high-definition content, Toshiba America Consumer Products, L.L.C. will be entering the Blu-ray market. We will share additional product information and details later this year."

Toshiba has not decided whether the player will be shown at next month's CEDIA show.

Toshiba did introduce its HD-DVD drive in its high-end Qosmio laptop line, but a call to the company's computer division has not yet been returned.
