A promotional pamphlet for the introduction of DVD Video, produced by the British Video Association in 1999. The front features a photo of the rear of a DVD, alongside a DVD logo with a "Video" subtitle underneath, underneath the slogan "The Ultimate in Home Entertainment". The interior runs through the acronym: Digital, Versatile, Disk, and the need for a DVD player. It then goes on to detail the improvements of DVD over VHS: its "twice as sharp" picture quality, original wide-screen cinema format, CD sound quality, with particular focus given to its interactivity and bonus features, such as director commentary and "direct scene access". Stills of the menus of You've Got Mail and Practical Magic accompany. The flip-side features graphics and release dates of a number of DVDs across genres, including music and TV/sport. Highlighted are 7 films for their inclusion of special features: The Matrix, The Mask of Zorro, The Debt Collector, Austin Powers, Notting Hill, Cher Live in Concert and Fiddler on the Roof.
