DVD (sometimes explained as "digital
video disc" or "digital versatile disc") is a digital optical disc storage format, invented and developed by Philips, Sony, Toshiba, and Panasonic in 1995. Game Exchange has a large inventory of DVD titles for your enjoyment. Game Exchange also carries movie and television series.
Movie and home entertainment distributors adopted the DVD format to replace the ubiquitous VHS tape as the primary consumer digital video distribution format. They embraced DVD because it produces superior moving pictures and sound, provides superior data lifespan, and can be interactive. Interactivity on Laser Discs had proven desirable to consumers, especially collectors. When Laser Disc prices dropped from approximately $100 per disc to $20 per disc at retail, this luxury feature became available for mass consumption. Simultaneously, the movie studios decided to change their home entertainment release model from a rental model to a purchase model, and large numbers of DVDs were sold.
