"CD-i grew out of Philips' innovations in the development of optical (laser-read) discs both for the professional and consumer sector, starting with research and development in the 1960s and marked by the release of the LaserVision videodisc system in 1978, compact disc audio in 1982, CD-ROM and LV-ROM in 1986, and compact disc video in 1988. This 'systems family' developed by Philips also includes the data capture and storage system 'Megadoc', as well as CD-ROM XA, and WORM and WMRM discs. CD-i is an all-digital medium, storing video, graphics, text, computer and audio data as interleaved date, all of which is under the direct interactive control of the end-user. CD-i is also a system specification and, importantly, looks set to become a major contender in the battle for a world standard for consumer interactive multimedia. CD-i discs can be played on CD-i systems anywhere in the world, regardless of local differences in broadcast TV standards."
