"JVC Kenwood has helped to invent and develop the Blu-ray Disc format in the past and currently sells many Blu-ray prerecorded discs and unique Blu-ray Disc recorders for consumer and professional use," said Tetsuro Fuse, JVC intellectual property operation strategic research and development for Blu-ray Disc products.
