letterboxed or ...

mass market never embraced the laser disc: it too was not a recordable medium.
The mass market loves its VCRs. It loves the ability to record even more than it
loves prerecorded video. Marketers are going to say the DVD is cute and sexy,
just like the CD was perceived as cute and sexy when it was introduced. But the
CD differed in that it was strictly an aural medium. Portable high quality music
could be taken anywhere and listened to while we did other things. Video has

While DVD's proponents have promised that the new format will have a slightly
sharper image than laserdisc George Feltenstein ofMGM/UA (which has 425
