"DVD will probably last only five more years and then the next =
technology will have even more problems of conversion."

Dennis Doros
Milestone Film & Video
This inconspicuous line buried in Dennis' comments particularly deserves =
some reflection. Many of us are in the process--and financial =
binds--of converting over our educational collections of VHS to DVD as =
titles come out on DVD. Is it truly only 5 more years of life for the =
much vaunted DVD? It may take us 5 years to completely convert to DVD!
Can I just wait out DVD and skip to the next technology please? =
Will that be dial-up? =20
In the meantime, we hang on to our 16mm films and projectors for the =
big comeback. (Wish I'd kept those filmstrips.)
Thank you,
