|What Does DVD Mean in the Real World? ...DVD Resources|
The nature of DVD's success lies in a true business revolution - the convergence of the computer, entertainment and consumer electronic industries. Hundreds of companies - including the powerhouses of each of those industries - combined forces to jointly develop and support a single technology that meets all their collective needs for media delivery. And despite its youth, DVD is a mature technology with a proven, standards-based foundation that is already generations of iterations beyond anything achieved by prior technologies such as CD-ROM or VHS.
DVD is one of those rare developments that significantly impact the marketplace on almost every level simultaneously. From consumers looking for exciting new entertainment; creatives working to show-case their talent; postproduction facilities hoping to maximize profits; and corporations needing to communicate with their employees and their customers, DVD has opened broad new avenues for delivering all forms of digital content. Moreover, for every one of those applica-tions, there is massive potential for bottom-line return for those who create DVD titles.
