Spreading ideas just got easier. Today TED announces DVD On Demand, which allows users to create custom TEDTalk DVDs from a library of over 700 available talks. Each disc holds up to six talks, each with the option to order with subtitles in up to 32 languages. DVDs, available for $9.99, can be shipped to and watched in any region of the world.
â€œBy putting our TEDTalks online for free, weâ€™ve helped spread ideas to over half a billion viewers,â€ said June Cohen, Executive Producer of TED Media. â€œBut not everyone has access to the internet, nor are they necessarily tech-savvy enough to stream talks when they do. There are times when you need to watch talks off-line. And our DVDs â€“ think of them as â€˜mix tapesâ€™ of talks â€“ are a simple alternative: inexpensive, highly personalized and easy to play on any DVD player.â€
