At the specially convened IFA press conference, the Blu-ray Disc
Association (BDA) announced that Acer will become the newest member of the BDA.
Acer, which joins the BDA as a contributing
member, is one of the three largest personal-computer brands in the
world and the number one notebook brand in Europe.
"We?re delighted to welcome Acer to the Blu-ray Disc Association,"
said Victor Matsuda, chairman of BDA?s Global Promotions Committee.
"The addition of Acer provides one more sign of the growing momentum
behind Blu-ray Disc and more importantly, is a significant advantage
for consumers, as it further expands the already broad options
available to consumers in the personal computer space."
"We are very pleased with the reception Blu-ray Disc has received by
consumers thus far in 2007," Matsuda said. "From the onset, offering
consumers a wide variety of quality hardware and content has been a
focus for Blu-ray. We are extremely pleased to add Acer?s line up to
the range of products available to consumers."
