Hitachi to increase BD pick-up head production

An increase of 6-12 Million units is quite large and would require a significant increase in standalone sales as the existing production is currently able to handle PS3 sales.

"Hitachi, a member of the Blu-ray Disc (BD) Association, will invest 100 million yuan (US$13.4 million) to produce BD pick-up heads (PUHs) on a joint venture basis with Huizhou Foryou Group, which is based in southern China, with monthly output to reach 200,000 units by the end of 2007 and 0.5-1 million units in 2008, according to the Chinese-language CBN Daily newspaper in China."

I guess this means BD really is dying.
