DVDs represent much more than a better picture, 5.1 Dolby Digital surround and features such as deleted scenes. The foundation of the DVD is the interactive features that lie within. All of this starts as soon as you put the disc in, with an element that most people take for granted: the menu.



With VHS, watching a movie consisted of putting a tape in, pressing play, watching it, and then being kind enough to rewind. Now DVDs present a much more user-interactive experience as viewers utilize menus to navigate through all of the goodies crammed onto the disc. Menu design can make or break a DVD.
