CDV

(1) (CD Video) An earlier Compact Disc (CD) format that held a 5-minute music video (MTV) along with 20 minutes of CD audio. Introduced in the late 1980s, it was short lived because it required a LaserDisc player for the video. The CDV was a unique analog/digital hybrid. Both the CD section and the video sound were digital, while the video frames were analog. See LaserDisc and Video CD.

(2) (Compressed Digital Video) The compression of full-motion video for high-speed, economical transmission.

(3) (Copy Data Virtualization) See copy data.
