Technology group Forrester Research declared Blu-ray, a new DVD format backed by electronics makers led by Sony Corp., as the winner in a heated battle over next-generation DVD technology.

Sony and Toshiba Corp. held high-level talks this year to try to unify their formats and avoid an all-out standards war, but those discussions broke down.

Hewlett-Packard Co. proposed a compromise Wednesday, asking other backers of Sony Corp.'s Blu-ray system to adopt copying technology from the rival system designed by Toshiba.
