New Logo From Toshiba Connected To The Blu-ray Killing DVD Player?

dvddownloaddl(2).jpgEarly in June we got word that Toshiba was working on an HD-enabled DVD player that featured enhanced image scaling capabilities resulting in a picture quality similar to that of Blu-ray. Apparently it's no joke, as the DVD Forum, chaired by Toshiba, has released a new logo that's rumored to be directly related to the super-powered DVD player. It's also now widely believed that the player will use Toshiba's SpursEngine 1000 CPU and judging by the 'Download DL' portion of the new logo will feature interactive and connected capabilities similar to those of Blu-ray's Profile 2.0. What's really surprising is that at the same June 11 meeting that produced the new logo, Toshiba continued talks regarding the now-dead HD DVD format!
