Sharp will put its first Blu-ray Disc recorder on sale in Japan in December, the company says.
The BD-HD100 will be the third recorder on the market to support the Blu-ray Disc format, which is one of two blue-laser based formats fighting to become the de-facto optical disc standard for high-definition video content. The first recorder was put on sale in April 2003 by Sony, while Matsushita Electric Industrial (Panasonic) began selling a model in July.
Machines supporting the other format, HD-DVD, are not due on sale until next year.
