Warner Denies Rumors of Shift in High-Def Strategy

From highdefdigest.com: [QUOTE] Though it's not likely to quell ongoing speculation, Warner today is denying reports that the studio will follow in Paramount's footsteps drop its dual-support of both HD DVD and Blu-ray.
The rumors began earlier this week, after fellow dual-format supporter Paramount announced it would exclusively release its movies on HD DVD, but reached a fever pitch late Thursday, when Warner VP Steve Nickerson -- the studio's high-def point person, and the industry's cheerleader for dual-format support -- announced he would leave Warner. Now, in a new article posted by Video Business, Warner Home Video spokesman Jim Noonan says that Nickerson's departure should not be taken to suggest an upcoming shift in the studio's high-def operations.
