The development of DVI was extensively documented, in books and articles, marketing literature and videotapes, patent filings, and in internal technical memos:

- The early development of the DVI concept was documented in internal Sarnoff project memos distributed among the original team at the David Sarnoff Research Center. Over 500 such memos were generated from 1982 to 1989, especially to detail the results of technical evaluations and decisions.

- With the acquisition of RCA by G.E. and then public announcement of DVI Technology in March 1987, the project moved into a very public phase of publicizing the technology, with articles and then books, papers and conference presentations, and conference exhibits.

- The product marketing effort also developed a variety of marketing collateral including newsletters, technology white papers, product brochures, and other meeting literature. As a visual technology, the DVI project also developed a number of videotapes from the very beginning of the project.

- The acquisition of DVI by Intel in November 1988 expanded this effort, and the resulting productization in partnership with IBM added additional publications, especially hardware and software product documentation, as well as additional patents.


DVI Books


DVI Technology is documented in two books: Digital Video in the PC Environment by Arch Luther (manager of the Sarnoff team) and Multimedia Application Development Using DVI Technology by Mark Bunzel and Sandra Morris (manager of the developers program at Sarnoff and then Intel). Both were revised with a second edition, and together they cover the period from 1989 through 1994.

The DVI technology and products are also described in other books of this period covering multimedia, interactive video, and CD-ROM.
