Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/03/2014 -- DVD is still default technology when it comes to cd technology, as it's preferred by many direct to video media options for home technology use due to its greater flexibility, durability and storage. AVI on the other hand is Microsoft's own container format, that leads its own segment of the market.

DVD Viewing Without the CD, Made Easy
The clear advantage of DVD is bigger storage while maintaining the native dimensions the CD has been known for [the round disc].
The first DVD had a 1 GB capacity and current ones in use today can store as much 15 GB amount of video data. Obviously the unification of just one format became a big convenience for audio and home entertainment purposes, especially in the USA where the Hollywood directly drives the economy of sale for these types of commodity.
The landmark unification was also unprecedented as consumer tech giants including Toshiba, Sony, and Philips agreed to a single format [not on the separate two that these camps have previously fought about]. The timely intervention of IBM, Apple, Microsoft and other software-hardware giants made it possible for the reconciliation and birth of a more capable, single-sided disc now called the Universal Disk Format.
On the other hand, the landscape of home viewing has drastically changed from the first year DVDs were introduced in 1995 and the current year. Just barely 10 years after it was introduced, most households now enjoy watching things digitally or through online streaming – think Netflix era as compared to the traditional cable options which many Americans now consider very costly.
Many avid movie fans now enjoy digital content without the need for a CD.
