Further Applications

CD-ROM has brought about a revolution in information provision for computer users. Educational applications seem almost endless: databases for historical information, leisure applications (Microsoft's Musical Instruments), on line encyclopædias to name just three. Almost weekly, a new use is dreamt up for the storage and access capability of the CD-ROM. There is, however, greater potential for DTV outside of the confines of the CD.

Information superhighways open the way for a range of new services; long distance learning, home shopping and banking, video games, interactive television and advanced telephone services. The end user of these new services is sure to be a demanding one. Having grown used to high quality television pictures from around the world and advanced video games, the demand will require:

"the full range of electronic information technologies, with mergers forming between, telephone companies, cable operators, computer manufacturers, programmers, movie makers and television producers, as well as the network suppliers."
