DVD Players

It was not that long ago that the VHS tape players were the must have home electronics which dominated the video market, but DVD players have replaced them completely. Upgrading from tapes to discs took the home entertainment to a whole new level and added new fun features. The first DVD player was available on the market in 1997 and since then the DVD players have evolved from a simple DVD player to full HD and Blu Ray players taking home entertainment to the next level. The Sony Playstation 2 was the first video game system to play DVDs, making it the ultimate entertainment system.

DVD disks:

A DVD is very similar to a CD but it can hold a larger amount of data, 7 times more data than a CD. This means that it can store a complete movie on it as well as a lot more other information. A typical DVD contains up to 133 minutes of high resolution video, soundtrack available in up to 32 languages and subtitles in up to 32 languages.
