6. Video Title Set (VTS)
A group of related video titles having similar display format (standard screen
or wide screen) or aspect ratio comprises a video title set (VTS). A single VTS
can hold up to 99 titles per VTS. There is practically no limit on the number of
PGCs which can be defined per title. A DVD-compliant disc can have up to 99 video
title sets. The number of video title sets designed for a project depends on many
factors. If the project consists of a single movie title, or one large title with
several related but shorter titles, one VTS is sufficient. Multiple video title
sets allow more flexibility to organize an authoring project which includes several
groups of titles whose contents have different display formats or aspect ratio or
represent different topics to the audience.
Each title in a video title set can be a distinct piece of video and audio contents
but shares the same root menu, audio language menu, subtitle menu, angle and chapter
menu with other titles in the VTS. The root menu of the VTS which contains the
currently active title is displayed when the "Menu" button on the user remote
control is pressed. The video title set keeps track of the order and physical
locations of each title within the VTS, so a title can be referred to as a relative
title within the VTS, without reference to titles from other VTSes. This makes
VTS-domain instructions simple and efficient to access a local VTS title.
A DVD-compliant Video Title Set is composed of the following files:
1. VTS_nn_0.IFO consists of control and playback information for the video title
set nn (where nn is from 1 to 99). This file is required to be present on each VTS.
2. VTS_nn_0.VOB contains the contents required for the root menu and other
predefined VTS menus of the video title set nn (where nn is from 1 to 99).
This file is not required and may or may not be present (or have a zero file size)
on a DVD-compliant disc. Data structures stored in this file belongs to the Video
Title Set Menu (VTSM) domain.
3. VTS_nn_n.VOB contains the contents required for all titles present in the video
title set nn (where nn is from 1 to 99, and n is from 1 to 9). At least one file
VTS_nn_1.VOB is required in the VTS and each VTS_nn_n.VOB file can have a maximum
file size of 1 GBytes. Contents stored in these files make up the program streams
in the title domain.
4. VTS_nn_0.BUP is an identical copy of VTS_nn_0.IFO. If the DVD player cannot read
information from the VTS_nn_0.IFO, it will attempt to get the required information
from this backup file. This file is required to be present on a DVD-compliant disc.
