Etymology[edit]

video- +‎ -gram

Noun[edit]

videogram (plural videograms)

  1. A physical object containing an audiovisual work, such as a videotape or DVD.
  2. The audiovisual work itself, such as the content of a videotape or a DVD, often intended to cover such works regardless of the storage medium.

Usage notes[edit]

  • This term is frequently used in copyright licensing agreements to grant permissions to an audiovisual work in any currently known or later developed video format, thus avoiding the limitations of specifying a particular format, such as "VHS Videotape," that may be inappropriate or unduly limiting as new technologies are developed.
  • It is often used in organization names. Example: Argentine Chamber of Phonograms and Videograms Producers.
