CD Video was a format introduced in 1983 that combined the technologies of compact disc and laserdisc. CD Video discs were the same size as an audio CD, and contained up to 20 minutes worth of audio information that could be played on any audio CD player. It also contained up to 5 minutes of analog video information plus digital CD-quality sound which could be played back on a laserdisc player capable of playing CD Video discs. CD Video discs have a distinctive gold color, to differentiate them from regular silver-colored audio CD's. CD Video is not to be confused with the all-digital MPEG-based Video CD format, which came out 2 years later in 1985. CD Video lasted only 6 years in the marketplace, disappearing by 1991.
