Video, DVD and digital sound

This work is protected by copyright. It has been published in many European countries but never in English language. Therefore I desided to upload it to the Internet. It is free to use as it is for personal, non-commercial use. All rights belong to Michael Karbo. You may not in any way copy the contents.

These web pages have been produced from a Microsoft Word file. Hence the design, which could be better. The translation is not perfect, neither. You'll have to live with it as it is. The manuscript was written in 2002/2003, but it is still very useful.
