Part 1: A Brief Induction of DVD

Every moviegoer may have piles of DVDs in the corner of their living room. But when you were enjoying the movie on your DVD player, have you ever thought that why the video quality is so excellent?

Short for Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc, a DVD or DVD-ROM, is a disc capable of storing large amounts of data on one disc the size of a standard Compact Disc. It is widely used for storing and viewing movies and other data. A DVD holds a minimum of 4.7GB of data, enough for a full-length movie. So the main feature of DVD is its good video quality but with big video size.
