The Universal Media Disc (UMD) was a product of the Sony Corporation developed for the PlayStation Portable (PSP). UMD was an optical disc with a capacity of approx. 1.8 gigabytes of data on a dual-layer disc. The 'Universal' part of the moniker referred to the ability of the disc to carry gaming, video and audio data.

Video material was encoded in the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC codec, a highly efficient codec which provides very good image quality - especially on the PSP's small screen. The PSP screen was 16x9 (1.78:1) aspect; source material that exists in wider aspect ratio's (such as 'Hollywood' 1.85:1 and 2.35:1) was encoded for UMD presentation in 1.78:1 (i.e. full-frame 16x9) 'pan & scan' - resulting in side-cropping in UMD versions of 'wider than 1.78:1' material.

Audio of UMD (Video) was confined to 2-channel stereo.

OO7 Releases
Due to the lack of reliable information about UMD movies, at a global level, it cannot be definitively stated that x-amount of OO7 films were issued on UMD. All that can be said with surety is that at least eight OO7 titles were marketed.

The UMD format was gradually phased-out beginning in 2011 when the last UMD-Video title was released. By 2014 the format was abandoned by Sony.
