Device Independent Document (TeX) (LaTeX)
DVI is a file extension for the output files used with TeX LaTeX software. DVI stands for DeVice Independent file.
DVI files contain binary data that describe the visual layout of a document, not relying on any particular image format, display device or printer. DVI files can't be read directly by TeX compatible software, instead relying on a DVI driver to interpret the data.
