Digital Video Overview

Digital video has a long and tortured history on the web. When it first arrived, the best results were reserved for those with T1 lines, cable modems, or DSL lines. If you used a dial-up service, a video window of 80 by 60 (or smaller) was the norm, and even then, the wait for the movie to download was a long one. The situation is a bit different today as bandwidth costs continue to fall. At the same time, the compression technology in the area of streaming has dramatically improved.

Even so, the creation of digital video is technically challenging and time-intensive when it comes to creating web content. The time required to produce a professional-grade digital video from the second the artist draws the storyboard on paper to the delivery of the FLV is measured in weeks or months, not days or hours.
