Backward Compatible

From Chace Audio

In technology, a product is said to be backward compatible when it is able to take the place of an older one by interoperating with products that were designed for the older product. Examples: Blu-ray Disc® players can play both Blu-ray Discs and DVDs; some DBC decks can play and record Beta SP tapes as well as Digital Betacams; LTO tape formats, software upgrades, and OS upgrades are also backward compatible.
