Convergence. . . For Real This Time!

Petersen, George
April 2004
Mix;Apr2004, Vol. 28 Issue 5, p10
The article presents an overview of the April 2004 issue of the audio and music magazine"Mix." Taken beyond the "transferring-home-movies-to-convenient-disc-form" stage, today, DVDs combine motion video, stills, text, graphics, audio and any format of computer files in the best example of a universal format ever devised. The same DVD that plays in the home (in mono, stereo or surround, with or without multiple soundtrack capability) can just as easily be viewed in a backseat car deck or on a laptop, desktop PC or flip-top portable viewer. In short, there is a whole lot of media going on inside that 4.75-inch circle of plastic. Consumers may see this new media as a convergence, but it's the production process in which a true convergence has finally brought everything together.
