1. Abbrev. for digital video interface. An emerging specification for providing a high speed digital connection for visual displays. It aims to provide a common interface for all display devices used by the PC industry. DVI provides high speed digital signals supporting up to 350 Mpixels/sec as well as conventional analog signals (SVGA etc.) in a single connector. Plug-and-play through hot plug detection is supported. DVI is increasingly being used with LCD displays that are purely digital in operation and there is no need for intermediate analog signals. This simplifies the circuitry and removes many of the synchronizing and aliasing problems encountered with analog-to-digital conversion.
2. Trademark; abbrev. for digital video interactive. A variant of the CD-ROM read-only optical disk format intended for the recording of images, including animated sequences. The technology encompasses motion video (with companion audio), audio, video stills, and text. A DVI end-user system includes special-purpose video, audio, and CD-ROM interface boards. See also CD-ROM format standards.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style
American Psychological Association
- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
