ABSTRACT
This article explains that DVD provides a broad range of capabilities for delivering a great viewing experience with high-quality video and surround-sound audio. Yet authoring the interactive interface for DVD is heavily constrained by the capabilities of low-cost set-top players that are targeted when the standard is originally developed. Even worse, these constraints resulted in a rather idiosyncratic authoring design, with limited programmability, a bunch of special-purpose registers, restricted modes and states, and severely limited graphics overlays. The author explores the benefits of high-definition blue-laser discs, a next generation of DVD authoring tools developed to counter authoring constraints.
