Get those home movies ready! You can now take your movies or video clips and store them to CD in miniDVD, Video CD or Super Video CD format. Super Video

CD (or SVCD) is very similar to a video CD, however, this format uses a compression standard called MPEG to store the audio and data. VCD’s can be played on most home video players that support this format and CD-ROM and

DVD-ROM players with appropriate software. SVCD discs can be played on DVD players, PC’s with DVD-ROMS or a CD-ROM drive with software which allows this type of video format to be seen.
