Chroma Key Chroma Key is used to mix two images or frames together, in which a color from one image is removed or it can be transparent, revealing another image behind it. Chroma Key is referred to as color keying color-separation overlay (CSO), green screen and blue screen.

Cassette Tapes The Compact Cassette, often referred to as audio cassette, cassette tape, cassette, or simply tape. Its uses ranged from portable audio to home recording to data storage for early microcomputers. The word cassette is a French word meaning "little box." Compact Cassettes consist of two miniature spools, between which a magnetically coated plastic tape is passed and wound. These spools and their attendant parts are held inside a protective plastic shell. This reversal is achieved either by manually flipping the cassette or by having the machine itself change the direction of tape movement ("auto-reverse").
VHS The Video Home System, better known by its abbreviation VHS, is a recording and playing standard developed by Victor Company of Japan, Limited (JVC) and launched in Europe/Asia in September 1976. VHS has playing time than the Betamax system, and it also had the advantage of a far less complex tape transport mechanism. DVD rentals surpassed VHS rentals in the US in 2003. By 2006, most major film studios stopped releasing movie made up in VHS format. Many leading retailers have stopped selling VHS, VHS prerecorded cassettes are still popular with many collectors. In Developing Countries, the VHS is still a major medium to distribute home video.
CD A Compact Disc (also known as a CD) is an optical disc used to store digital data. The CD was released October 1982. Standard CDs have a diameter of 120 mm and can hold up to 80 minutes of audio. The technology was later adapted and expanded to include data storage CD-ROM, write-once audio and data storage CD-R, rewritable media CD-RW, Super Audio CD (SACD), Video Compact Discs (VCD), Super Video Compact Discs (SVCD), PhotoCD, PictureCD, CD-I and Enhanced CD. CD-ROMs and CD-Rs remain widely used technologies in the computer industry. The CD and its extensions have been extremely successful: in 2004, worldwide sales of CD audio, CD-ROM, and CD-R reached about 30 billion discs. By 2007, 200 billion CDs had been sold worldwide.
DVD DVD (also known as "Digital Versatile Disc" or "Digital Video Disc"). Its main uses are video and data storage. Most DVDs are of the same dimensions as compact discs (CDs) but store more than six times as much data. Variations of the term DVD often describe the way data is stored on the discs: DVD-ROM has data that can only be read and not written, DVD-R and DVD+R can record data only once and then function as a DVD-ROM. DVD-RW, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM can both record and erase data multiple times. The wavelength used by standard DVD lasers is 650 nm, and thus the light has a red color. DVD-Video and DVD-Audio discs respectively refer to properly formatted and structured video and audio content. The next generation of DVDs is Blu-ray.
Blu-ray Blu-ray Disc (also known as Blu-ray or BD) is an optical disc storage medium. Its main uses are high-definition video and data storage. The name Blu-ray Disc is derived from the blue laser (violet-colored) used to read and write this type of disc. Blu-ray Disc can store 50 gigabytes, almost six times the capacity of a two-layer DVD, or ten and a half times that of a single-layer DVD. On February 19, 2008, Toshiba (the main company supporting HD DVD) announced that it would no longer develop, manufacture, or market HD DVD players and recorders. As of December 9, 2008, more than 1200 Blu-ray Disc titles have been released in the United States and more than 640 Blu-ray Disc titles have been released in Japan. There are expected to be over 1300 Blu-ray Disc titles released in the United States by the end of 2008.
