DVD The Ultimate Consumer Digital MediaWritten by Jay Corrao
Digital Video Disc or as it is sometimes referred to Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) has for last several years been Hollywood’s primary mass video distribution medium; and with good reason. This inexpensive, compact media delivers excellent video and audio quality. This same media has also become preferred medium for many multi-media professionals and audiophiles. Technological advancement and availability have pushed this media into consumer market for a number of reasons and its use and popularity will only increase over time. I will attempt to highlight some of advantages this medium offers. This article is only intended to be an introduction to this incredibly diverse digital media and not to be considered a technical thesis.
The video quality of DVD is superb; offering greater resolution, more vivid color and higher contrast than VHS tape. DVD Video also allows for a number of features simply not available on VHS tape such as on-screen menus, chapters, and sub-chapters that allow for easy navigation. Multi-speed fast forward and rewind, multi-language support, multiple camera angles and a number of other enhancements too numerous to mention here.
DVD audio quality is excellent surpassing that of Compact Disc (CD) with a sample rate of 24 bits and a frequency response of 192 KHz which is several times greater than CD specification. Not to mention that DVD specification supports multi-channel Surround Sound. It a nutshell DVD audio delivers a more high fidelity audio experience. Although CD is still more widely used for audio, as technology progresses DVD will likely become dominant media.
