DVD is a very convenient media not only for video it can be used for storing and distribution of software too. Most modern computers are equipped with a DVD-ROM drive and able to read DVD-ROM disks and even boot from it. DVD-ROM disks may store as much information as 7 CDs (4.7 Gb, DVD5, DVD-R, one side, one layer); 13 CDs (8.5 Gb DVD9, single side, double layer) or even 26 CDs (17 Gb; DVD18, double side, double layer). We currently produce DVD titles on 8.5 Gb double layer disks and have plans to publish a few titles on 17Gb disk during 2003.
