They can say what they want about advances in DVD, or any other flashing
lights and whirligigs, but the future will be non-moving "solid-state"
media. Movie storage will be on a card, then evolve into some form of
Internet delivery, once technology catches up with itself. Jump drives
(thumb drives, etc) have reached 8GIG...nearly twice the storage of a
standard DVD, and no moving parts! It won't be long.

Of course, all said IMHO

A solution to insurmountables always eventually appears, doesn't it? :-)

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of
issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic
control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in
libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve
as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel
of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video
producers and distributors.
