-Worldwide DVD recorder unit shipments will grow from 9.4 million in 2004 to 67.7 million in 2009.

-Digital TV tuners will be added to DVD recorders in increasing numbers in Japan, Europe, and North America. The FCC DTV tuner mandate will require a DTV tuner in each DVD recorder shipped in the US after July 1, 2007.

-Three manufacturers are shipping next-generation Blu-ray recorders in Japan, while the first HD-DVD players will be available in the second half of 2005 along with about 90 movie titles. In-Stat expects shipments of next-generation blue laser recorders and players will reach 4 million in 2008, not including video game consoles.

Though DVD recorders are readily available and prices are coming down, consumers are still purchasing DVD players in large quantities. Japan is the only market where DVD recorder shipments have overtaken that of DVD players.

The two next generation blue laser formats, Blu-ray and HD-DVD, are finalizing specs. HD-DVD players and content will be out by the end of 2005, while Blu-ray recorders are already shipping in Japan. No clear winner is emerging, but our expectations are discussed.
