HD DVDHD DVD (short for High-Definition DVD) is a discontinued high-density optical disc format for storing data and high-definition video.

Supported principally by Toshiba, HD DVD was envisioned to be the successor to the standard DVD format.

In February 2008, after a protracted format war with rival Blu-ray Disc, Toshiba abandoned the format, announcing it no longer developed or manufactured HD DVD players or drives.
