What is home video?

Home Video

Home video is a blanket term used for pre-recorded media that is either sold or rented/hired for home cinema entertainment. The term originates from the VHS/Betamax era, when the predominant medium was videotape, but has carried over into current optical disc formats like DVD and Blu-ray Disc and, to a lesser extent, into methods of digital distribution such as Netflix.

Famous quotes containing the words video and/or home:

    Marie Winn (20th century)

    Going home must be like going to render an account.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)
