Meaning of DVD

What is DVD?

DVD is the acronym for Digital Versatile Disc. DVD is a disk with the capacity to write data in a digital format, it is a more current version in relation to the CD, because it has a much greater capacity of storage of data and files.
The DVD was created in 1995, as a replacement for CDs and VHs tapes, which was the old technology to watch movies, for example. The first DVD players came out in Japan, and the first DVD movie released in the United States was Twister in 1996. The DVD became popular in Brazil in 2003 alone.

The DVD has the capacity to store 4.7 GB of data, and the old CD stored a maximum of 700 MB. There are two types of DVDs, the non-rewritable ones, which allow only one recording, and rewritable ones, which allows you to erase, append, and re-record data.

The DVD already has two substitutes, the HD DVD and the Blu-ray, both with greater capacity of storage. Blu-ray and HD DVD formats. Blu-ray can record up to 50 GB of data and the HD DVD 30 GB, plus the quality of sounds and image.
