DigitalVideo Interactive (DVI) is the multimedia platform for PC applications developed by Intel in the 1980s. DVI technology combines the possibilities of digital storage and playback of text, graphics, sound and video signals.
DVI distinguishes between two quality levels in moving image display: Real-time video( RTV) and production video( PLV). The production video specified in Digital Video Interactive has an aspect ratio of 4:3, a frame rate of 30 frames per second and a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, which corresponds to the VGA format. The data rate is 6 Mbps. The values for real-time video are about a factor of 4 lower. The DVI specifications date back to the 1980s, so the concept can no longer be adapted to modern requirements.
