OVA is pretty much the same as direct-to-video (which I'd use as the term as it's less ambiguous) afaik but can be either stand alone (Movie) or consist of several parts (Series). Both terms would be diluted if direct-to-video is omitted as currently Movie implicates that it's shown in cinema or some special broadcast first, and Series are usually shown on TV or similar serial broadcasting methods.
