THE DVD DIRECTORY 2002 – 4th Edition [Review] – from Waterlow New Media Information – Review

THE DVD DIRECTORY 2002 – 4th Edition – Bethan Cater, Editor – [Review] – This latest edition of ‘The DVD Directory’ contains listings for 2,771 companies involved in the DVD industry worldwide. Since publishing the 1st edition in October 2000, Waterlow has removed 384 companies from their database due to mergers and closures. On the other hand, 477 companies have been added to the directory. The directory is prefaced by a “DVD Facts and Figures” section reflecting the state of developments in the DVD field. Not only is DVD discussed, but also DVD-Recordable and the large number of still-incompatible formats looking for a “universal player”. Most of us now have DVD players in the home for entertainment systems, and players/recorders on our personal and business computers. Much is yet to come. ‘The DVD Directory’ is divided into eight sections: Development and Publishing, Hardware Manufacturers, Production Services, Materials Suppliers (new section), Mastering & Replication, Testing & Inspection (new separate section), Packaging, and Software Developers. — Waterlow New Media’s database of over 20,000 new media companies and 36,000 titles ( is an important and integral part of this directory. 136 pages. Softbound. 2002. A free copy of this print directory is available on request. — For further information contact: Waterlow New Media Information, Paulton House, 8 Shepardess Walk, London N1 7LB, UK.
