Nutshell: In future, everything will be connected via one digital format which can be read by all digital devices.


The distinction between video, DVD, MP3 and other entertainment or digital formats will become increasingly blurred. Eventually your house and most appliances including TV, security system, etc., will be connected to the internet via a common digital programming language or format.
