The Blu-ray Disc version of Warner Home Video's hit film 300 won the High-Def Title of the Year last week.

Blu-ray titles captured seven of the 11 categories, picked by a panel of critics and bloggers. All high-def discs released since the inception of Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD were eligible.

The first-ever High-Def Disc Awards were presented at High-Def 2.0, a one-day conference presented by Home Media Magazine in cooperation with The Hollywood Reporter and the Entertainment Merchants Association.

"We’re delighted," said Dan Silverberg, vice president of High-Definition Media for Warner Bros. "300 was a huge success at the box office. It's been a huge success since being released on disc, and it's gratifying to see it singled out for recognition by the critics and bloggers who selected the winners for these awards."
