Gone are the days where we need to purchase a couple of DVD’s to store our ongoing or final video files. With more and more consumers obtain easy access to the internet and portable devices, video storage files have also evolved to provide convenient access to these video files wherever you will go. There is no doubt that the future storage of video technology now lies in the cloud.
Projected Life of DVD and Blu-Ray
DVDs and Blue-rays once dominated the video industry with its convenience in displaying and sharing videos. You only need to have a TV and DVD player in your home it.
The problem with DVD’s is that it only offer limited space for your video storage.
You’ll eventually run out of space as the data capacity for your digital video files tends to grow, and purchasing a new disc every now and then for additional storage seems an impractical one.
It is also no longer compatible in streaming players such as VLC and portable devices. You will need to rip the video first and convert it to have the video played.
Moreover, most video editors had a hard time in encoding the video file format for DVDs. The video industry roughly estimates that the lifespan of DVD’s will cease to exist five years from now.
