A DVD is an optical disc technology that uses multiple layers of a compact disc to store data. Originally used to store movies, the abbreviation 'DVD' stood for Digital Video Disc; however, after becoming a more widely used format, it was shoehorned into the new abbreviation, Digital Versatile Disc.

History[edit | edit source]

The DVD, first developed in 1995, was created by three Japanese companies: Sony, Toshiba, and Panasonic.
