Fair use rationale for Image:CDVlogo.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:CDVlogo.svg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

No mention of various size formats[edit]

There is no mention in this article that CDVs were issued in 12 inch and 8 inch formats, as well as the 5 inch CDV-Single (which was unique in having it's hybrid CD Audio and CDV format). The 12 inch formats, which were identical to laserdiscs, apart from having digital audio and being gold (like all CDVs), were primarily used for long form music videos, such as "Storytelling Giant" by Talking Heads, and "The Whole Story" by Kate Bush. "Kick - The Video Flick" by INXS and "The Video Singles" by Wet Wet Wet were issued as 8 inch discs.

I don't think the 8-inch or 12-inch versions were called CD-video because they didn't have any CD (red book) content on them.Bollinger (talk) 22:23, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

I have a set of CD Video discs in front of me now. They are gold, 12" size, and contain the opera, Siegfried, with video and sound. They include the same CD Video logo. This article is therefore inaccurate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:36, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

I also sold CD Video players that accepted all 3 sizes of disc and they most certainly were sold as 'CD Video'. I also sold some of the somewhat limited range of titles. I cannot, however, find a suitable citation to support any of this, and my faultless memory is not a valid citation (though it ought to be!! ;-) ) (talk) 17:21, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

WRT this, I just received an NTSC LaserDisc branded as 'LaserVision' and '12" CD Video'. This refutes the (unsourced) claim previously on the article of that being a PAL-only brand, so I have removed it (despite this being original research, the fact that the claim was unsourced anyway I think makes it OK). The title in question is A Taxing Woman, LVD8903. --Muzer (talk) 23:51, 13 December 2015 (UTC)


The infobox (present as of Feb 2011) states as 'owner': Philips, Sony, Panasonic, Samsung. Is there any reference for this? I can't recall Panasonic being very active in CDV or LaserDisc, and Samsung not at all. I don't think they ever made a player, and even if they did I highly doubt they were involved with the standardization in those days (circa 1985) -- as opposed to later standards like DVD and BD and maybe Video CD. I believe there may be a mix-up here (likely with Video CD) and propose to remove Panasonic and Samsung until any reference is given. The Seventh Taylor (talk) 23:24, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
