The DVD is a data storage format for digital optical discs that was designed and developed in 1995 and introduced in late 1996. The medium can hold any type of digital data and was commonly used for software and other computer files, as well as DVD-based video applications. DVDs have a larger storage capacity than compact discs but are the same size.

Molding machines physically stamp data onto the DVD to mass-produce prerecorded DVDs. Because data can only be read, not written or erased, such discs are a kind of DVD-ROM. Blank recordable DVD discs (DVD-R and DVD+R) can be recorded once and then used as a DVD-ROM afterward. DVDs that can be recorded and erased several times (DVD-RW, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM) are rewritable.

DVDs are used for producing DVD discs made in a particular AVCHD format to carry high definition material, as well as in the DVD-Video and DVD-Audio consumer digital video and audio formats (often in conjunction with AVCHD format camcorders). DVD data discs are DVDs that include a variety of different sorts of data.

“In 1995, rival makers of the product originally designated digital video disc decided that, in order to highlight the format’s adaptability for multimedia applications, the chosen acronym DVD would be interpreted to mean digital versatile disc,” according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, in 1995, “The format’s official name, according to the makers, will be DVD. Toshiba had been using the name ‘digital video disc,’ but because computer businesses objected that it left out their applications, the name was changed to ‘digital versatile disc.’”


Before the DVD, numerous formats for recording video on optical discs were created. David Paul Gregg and James Russell devised optical recording technology in 1963, and it was originally patented in 1968. The LaserDisc is a consumer optical disc data format that was created in the United States and initially released in Atlanta, Georgia in December 1978. Its discs were substantially bigger than those used in succeeding formats.

Consumer acceptance of the LaserDisc was limited in both North America and Europe, and it was not generally utilized anywhere outside of Japan and the more affluent countries of Southeast Asia, such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and Taiwan, due to the expensive cost of players and discs.

CD Video, which debuted in 1987, employed analog video encoding on optical discs that were the same size as audio CDs, measuring 120 mm (4.7 in). In 1993, the Video CD (VCD) became one of the first media for delivering digitally encoded films. Two new optical disc storage formats were created in the same year.

The Multimedia Compact Disc (MMCD), which was backed by Philips and Sony (the creators of the CD and CD-i), and the Super Density (SD) disc, which was backed by Toshiba, Time Warner, Matsushita Electric, Hitachi, Mitsubishi Electric, Pioneer, Thomson, and JVC.

The MMCD name had been discontinued by the time of the press introductions for both formats in January 1995, and Philips and Sony were referring to their product as Digital Video Disc (DVD). Secure Digital will subsequently utilize the Super Density logo.
