IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Toshiba Storage Device Division (SDD) today announced the world’s first half-height HD DVD writer, providing high-definition video editing and content creation capabilities on desktop systems and media centers using this increasingly popular next-generation DVD technology.
