Chapter 5. Enjoying Multimedia > DVD Is Here to Stay

DVD Is Here to Stay

You can find DVD players in a variety of price ranges and forms, and even the Xbox and Sony PlayStation 2 game consoles include DVD capabilities. Video discs can be found by the binful at wholesale clubs/membership warehouses.

DVD is the next generation of optical disc storage. Not only can DVDs hold more data and run faster than other optical storage devices, but they can also hold video, sound, and computer data. Furthermore, DVD broadcasts at twice the resolution of VHS videos and Dolby sound. Some of the technology's biggest supporters believe DVD may eventually replace audio CDs, videocassettes, laser discs, CD-ROMS, and perhaps even game cartridges. In fact, the technology has gained the support of major electronics companies, computer software manufacturers, and a near majority of movie and music studios.
