The company intends to switch to Blu-ray after it offers Things We Lost in the Fire and Into the Wild on HD DVD.

Paramount said it is determining its Blu-ray release schedule.

Universal Studios said last week it was shifting its focus to Sony's Blu-ray standard.

That announcement came after Toshiba Corp. said it would no longer develop, make or market players and recorders in HD DVD, the standard it invented.

Blu-ray won another key battle last month when Warner Bros. Entertainment chose it as the exclusive format for its releases.

Other Blu-ray backers are Sony Pictures, Walt Disney Co. and News Corp.'s Twentieth Century Fox.

Paramount is a division of Viacom Inc.
