  China Video Disc - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The China Video Disc (CVD), developed in the late 1990s, is a Chinese government-sponsored competitor to the SVCD standard.
This lower resolution allows for video to be encoded at a lower bit-rate with less visual artifacts, which means longer videos are possible.
CVDs are compatible with most DVD players sold in the United States.

 Super Video CD - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Video is encoded as MPEG-2, and may have a variable bit rate up to 2.6 megabits per second.
CVD was first out of the gate, and had completed its specification before the other two had even reached a draft stage.
The Ministry of Information and Video CD Consortium agreed to join forces, incorporating the features of HQ-VCD under a unified SVCD format, but by the time their specification was ready in July 1998, CVD had already been adopted by major manufacturers of VCD players.

 The real 'China threat'
China, Japan and the United States are the three most productive economies on Earth, but China is the fastest-growing (at an average rate of 9.5% per annum for more than two decades), whereas both the US and Japan are saddled with huge and mounting debts and, in the case of Japan, stagnant growth rates.
China’s growing economic weight in the world is widely recognized and applauded, but it is China’s growth rates and their effect on the future global balance of power that the US and Japan, rightly or wrongly, fear.
China is certainly building a large fleet of nuclear submarines and is an active participant in the EU’s Galileo Project to produce a satellite navigation system not controlled by the US military.

 Playing Damaged Video Tape: Recovery FAQ TBC Head Clogging
Vintage video recovery and transfer is a specialized field and you've probably already noticed that there's only a handful of us scattered across the entire country that have the technical skills or even the inclination to support the obsolete video formats.
As a result, the uncorrected b/w video is usually good enough for a TV to display, but not stable enough to allow a copy to be made, where the capstan servo system on the recorder is unable to track the wandering time base.
The video may be frozen or there may be noise in the picture depending upon how it's programmed to respond upon detecting bad video, but the sync output will always be stable.

 CVD:What is it,how to test it & what to expect!
The development of the CVD specification began in 1997 and the first CVD players were released on the market in June 1998, while SVCD and HQ-VCD specifications were still at a draft stage.
In terms of video and audio quality, China Video Disc (CVD) is in between VCD 2.0 and DVD.
In the matter of fact, CVD's switchable subtitling was adapted "as it is" from the SVCD format (except Philips players, as usual).

 OPTICAL DISC CHINA WATCH
But China is a relative latecomer to copyright legislation and will need time to arrive at a fully developed set of laws and enforce- ment procedures.
China's first digital CVD players made by Idall hit the market last month, while similar products of other major producers are expected to follow soon.
China now has a combined annual production capa- city of almost 50 million VCD players a year, while the ma- rket potential is thought to be only 15 million this year.

 China's Alternative To DVD - CBS News
China, for years, has been an efficient source of manufacturing for all sorts of high-tech products.
Yet, even though China is cranking out a record number of DVD machines, it's not a major consumer of the devices.
And, considering China's population, economic clout, cheap labor and manufacturing prowess, the impact could be felt around the world.

For its part, China has insisted that the trade deficit would be alleviated only if US lawmakers lift restrictions on technology sales to China put in place to prevent the transfer of "dual-use" technology (ie, civilian technology that could be used for military purposes).
China's decision to buy technology equipment appears to be a victory for US firms, which have often complained of slow liberalization in the Chinese telecom sector.
China hopes to avoid steep royalty payments to patent-holding corporations in Japan, the US and Europe by creating its own technology, but it will face intense competition.

 UCLA Center for Chinese Studies: The Business of Lobbying in China
Based on this study, Professor Kennedy reached two main conclusion: first, business lobbying in China is widespread and regularly influences economic policy; and second, the economic contexts of firms and their industries affect how lobbying is carried out and consequently affects firms’ relative policy influence.
Second, China’s business and trade associations (of which there are over 400 nationally, and tens of thousands at the local level) and chambers of commerce, do not have much autonomy.
The companies that produced to the CVD standard resisted, and began to lobby the government, "all the way up to the vice minister." In the process, the industry divided according to the two standards.

 Enhanced Versatile Disc declared national standard in China - CD Freaks.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
China has formally declared its Enhanced Video Disc (EVD) format the national standard for digital video discs, its Ministry of Information Industry (MII) said this week.
Like DVD, EVD video data is compressed, but according to the format's developers, Beijing-based E-World and US digital video technology company On2, it is capable of displaying HDTV images, a feat currently not possible with the established standard.
China Video Disc was a format which rivalled VCD/SVCD (I think it was MPEG2 at 352x480/576 IIRC).

 Noulakaz.net weblog » Blog Archive » China Video Disc
CVD which stands for China Video Disc was designed to be the successor of VCD in China but it lost its battle to SVCD.
As a result, given that the bitrates for CVD and SVCD are the same, the CVD image is better.
Another reason for using CVD is that it’s resolution is exactly half of DVD and therefore can be copied directly on a DVD-R and played as a DVD.

 Super Video CD Overview
The final SVCD spec, set by the China National Committee of Recording Standards, was announced in September 1998, winning out over C-Cube's China Video Disc (CVD) and HQ-VCD (from the developers of the original Video CD).
It was calculated that creating a royalty-free, full-fledged video disc format on their own would be a major long-term win for the domestic industry.
In terms of video and audio quality, SVCD is in between VCD 2.0 and DVD, using a 2x CD drive to support variable bitrate (VBR) MPEG-2 video up to 2.6 Mbps, and either 1 or 2 MPEG-2 Layer II stereo audio streams (for soundtracks in two different languages).

 TheStreet.com: *New* Short Stories: C-Cube
While the now familiar compact disc has been around for more than 15 years, "digital video discs," which are to videotapes what CDs are to cassettes, have proven much more difficult to engineer, largely because producing movie-quality images requires vast amounts of data.
"Digital video disc is going to revolutionize the video market, and it will do to the videotape what the music CD did to the audiotape," says Robert Gintel, portfolio manager of the $200 million Gintel fund, which ranks in the top 10% of all U.S. equity funds for five-year performance.
But with digital video slow to build, C-Cube remains heavily dependent on the Chinese video CD business, which accounted for almost half its revenues in the fourth quarter of 1997, according to the company.

 Optimal KB/S
What I've found the best temporary storage method that doesn't require video re-encoding, but provides good quality video and works on CDs _and_ DVDs when played with stand-alone, is called "CVD" or "China Video Disc" -- one of the official drafts for standard that became eventually known as SVCD.
CVD's specs are almost identical to those of SVCD, but the video size is different -- 352x480/576 -- which _IS_ supported by DVD-Video standards.
Only problem is with the audio, but you can try to hack it and make it 48kHz already when making the CVD, even that this violates the specs.

Also, the problems of discs found through this inspection are to be reported from DVD Format/Logo Licensing Corporation to each DVD-Video Disc Manufacturer in question, requiring their own investigation and solution of the problems.
As to playback, problems were found in 14 discs when played back with a hardware device; this does not mean, however, that all the devices used for the playback test showed a problem, and in fact, there was some hardware that could play back discs without any problems shown.
The China market is facing a dangerous situation that users’ trust will be lost and the growth of the market itself will be hindered, if this situation goes on.

 PCTechGuide - The PC Technology Guide
With over 20 million households owning VCD payers by the late 1990s, it is unsurprising that China was instrumental in the development of a successor to the VCD format.
As a consequence, SVCD is capable of delivering up to 2 times sharper video images than its predecessor, at the cost of reduced capacity - typically between 35 minutes and 80 minutes depending on the average bit rate used - per CD.
The subtitles are overlaid on the top of the video image in real time, and may be enabled or disabled at will.

The video quality of WM9 HD is far higher than that of a DVD image displayed on the same computer monitor.
The higher capacity needed for the highest-quality HD video image is enabled by the use of blue lasers (all earlier optical-disc formats use red lasers).
They call it EVD, for Enhanced Video Disc (or Enhanced Versatile Disc), and are already selling DVD players for less than $200, packaged with two to eight free HD movies.

Super Video CD (aka SVCD, Super VCD or Chaoji VCD) is an enhancement to Video CD that was developed by a Chinese government-backed committee of manufacturers and researchers, partly to sidestep DVD technology royalties and partly to create pressure for lower DVD player and disc prices in China.
It was quite obvious right from the beginning that the next generation Chinese video disc format just had to be based on the tested and proven Compact Disc media for it to be affordable enough.
Super Video CD specification 1.0 can be ordered from Philips System Standards and Licensing at $200.

Note the timebase flaws at the top of the signal (skewed video), the missing image data on the left side, and the crawling errors at the bottom of the screen.
In video, this usually means to put fl over a portion of the image, often to hide noise.
Too many users insist on using the highest bit-rates and resolutions on their video project, insisting that is what it takes to make "top quality" or "professional-quality" work.

KVCD is a modification to the standard MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 GOP structure and Quantization Matrix.
Using a resolution of 352x240 (NTSC) or 352x288 (PAL), it's possible to encode video up to ~360 minutes of near VCD quality on a single 80 minute CD-R. The mpeg files created will play back in most modern standalone DVD players.
People have tried and tried and tried...But SVCD and CVD, the first standards for compact disc video, are still the best.
