The Advantages Of The DVD Format

 By: Ruby J. Flanagan
Do you love watching movies? Are you tired of the old VHS tapes that you have to sit and manually rewind and wait for all the time?

Forget about DVD burner software and accessories, we want to talk about the basic advantages that the DVD format offers you compared to the standard VHS format. There are quite a few, but several in particular that are really beneficial and which will be discussed here in more detail.

Picture Quality

One of the greatest benefits of DVD format is that it offers better picture quality. You will feel as though you are right inside the movie when you watch DVD movies, and VHS tape picture quality cannot even begin to compare.

While a VCR will produce 240 lines of horizontal resolution, this is less than half of its DVD counterpart. Using the DVD format you are able to view twice as much picture detail than a VCR, a third more than your television alone.


Another of the improved features of the DVD format is the sound. The audio is truly incredible, especially when you have surround sound speakers set up so that the sound will be all around you and truly take you into the setting of the movie.

When it comes to sound, the DVD is far superior with a sound system produced with movie theater technology, and DVDs even include a 6 channel Dolby Digital or competing Digital Theater Sound surround sound, so that you can experience your movies like never before.


There are also a ton of extras that are offered to you by the DVD format. One of the biggest DVD extra benefits is that with just the touch of a button you are able to jump from one scene to another and this is something that you are certainly not able to do with the standard VHS tapes.

It is easy to see just how advantages the DVDs are over their VHS counterparts, and why it will be well worth it for you to make the switch if you have not already. You can find all of your favorite movies in DVD, even those from nearly a century ago.

DVD is the new medium for video, audio and data and although it looks very much like an audio CD disc, there are tons of differences as you have seen here, and is presently the best format for all your video watching experiences.
