Video Server

Just as DVD replaced VHS and Laserdisc for showing video in art spaces, computers are replacing DVD. When a computer is set up with the sole purpose of playing video, this computer is called a Video server, and it can be assembled from a general-purpose computer like a Mac or Windows PC or it can be manufactured as a stand-alone device, like a DVD player. The advantage of a video server is its ability to play many types of video, including HD (high-definition).
