The battle over who will rule the next DVD era is a main attraction at Ceatec Japan 2005, the information-technology and electronics show that opened Oct. 4 in Tokyo. Here, a Toshiba employee shows off one of the contending technologies: a player geared for the HD DVD format and a 30GB double-layer disk.
