    The rival formats have split the film and electronics industry
    The first DVD player to play both rival high definition DVD formats has been announced by South Korean firm LG.

    The dual-format player will be able to play the Sony-backed Blu-ray discs and the Toshiba-led HD DVD discs.

    The introduction of two next-generation formats has split both the electronics industry and Hollywood film studios.

    The player will be launched at the same time as a hybrid double-sided Blu-ray HD DVD disc, developed by Warner Bros.

    The Total HD discs and the LG player will both go on display at the Consumer Electronic's Show (CES) in Las Vegas that starts on 8 January.
