What About The Competition?
LAS VEGAS - When you back one technology and not a competing alternative, do you actually want to advertise that alternative's existence? Maybe not, to judge from Sony and Panasonic's press conferences. Both managed to tout their Blu-Ray high-definition video-disc players without once mentioning the rival, incompatible HD DVD format.
The two Blu-Ray allies find themeslves on opposite sides in the plasma-versus-LCD debate. Sony, an LCD proponent, never even used the word "plasma" in a presentation of its plans. Panasonic, however, spent a long time touting the superiority of plasma over LCD - before noting later on that it also makes LCDs, which it described as good for smaller screen sizes and brightly-lit rooms.
