(1) May refer to a computer's display system rather than TV/video as in definition #3 below. For example, a "video card" is the same as a "graphics card" or "display adapter." The video system in a computer uses different standards than TV. It sends analog (VGA) or digital (DVI) signals to the monitor. See display adapter, VGA and DVI.|
(2) A generic term for a full-length movie or a short movie clip. It can refer to an analog VHS videotape, to a digital format such as a DVD disc or to a computer file (WMV, AVI, MPEG, DivX, etc.). Prior to the 1990s, the term implied that an analog TV set or monitor (TV without tuner) was used for viewing. Since then, movies can be created in digital camcorders and played on computers without ever being turned into the traditional analog NTSC TV/video format (see definition #3 below).
