The Digital Age
Technology has come a long way from the standard definition era of Cine Film, VHS, Super 8mm/Hi8 tapes, Mini DV tapes. Mini HDV tapes took one of the first leaps into high definition, and had been taken over by SD Cards meaning that you no longer had to rely on tape that could be easily damaged. Filming onto digital media also means that you no longer need to watch the entire video in real time to transfer it to the computer, you just simply drag and drop.
DVDs are already starting to loose their value, and it can be debated if Blu-Ray actually took off or not. Most computers only come with DVD drives and most homes commonly only have a DVD player. Many years ago Apple discontinued its DVD authoring software, and recently Adobe discontinued theirs also, as they believed that cloud based storage is the future. Apple in fact no longer even include a DVD drive in their computers forcing their users to either purchase an external disk drive or use its cloud based features.
