Digital copy discs aren't sold by themselves. I would guess the digital copy discs are pretty cheap. They're even showing up in some DVD packages.

pressing costs are the same. It's a DVD

There's no real cost, because it's the same compression they're going to sell on iTunes anyway. So say $0.50-60 after activation charges from Apple. A DVD costs around $5-10k for a basic disc production, nothing too fancy

to see if this “clunker” on the lot will qualify for a cash rebate but, there is no category for “District 9 Assault Vehicle with Machine Gun Torrent on Top”.
A picture of a windshield aint exactly getting me all pumped up. I want to see the WEAPONRY.

Penton,

Is this picture from the Universal Studio backlot? I could have sworn I saw this a few weeks ago on vacation. In fact, I'll have to go through our pictures and see if I have a snapshot too!

Nope.

This image is from another angle which shows the weaponry on top with a cyan colored high-rise having red trim in the immediate background…..such a convex shaped building is definitely not present on the Uni backlot.

Are you sure that video wasn't made for the Dharma Initiative?

The similarities are scary.

Warner did it with BD and HD DVD
Disney is doing it with Snow White and maybe others
Paramount just announced their first time

PM any plans for Sony to try split releases with the BD coming out several weeks before the DVD?

Not Penton, but as the format gets more popular we should see more and more and more split releases....still i'm pretty sure that it is the BDA sponsoring this for now, but big deal, as when it gets to 30% marketshare, we should see a lot more split releases imo...

because it costs more money to do the split release instead of at once....its an expense. But this expense is less than the additional revenue by just frontloading DVD. When the cost equals the revenue, which my guess will be at 20-30% , since we are already seeing a few of these now.

It could be argued that the lack of rental windows was a big factor in pushing DVD over the hump like it was. Certainly it's worth a try again

The big problem is that there was an obvious physical difference between tape and a disc. Making sure that stores are trained and signage is in place is very important for implementing something like this to avoid lots of returns and angry customers

In the old days didnt movies come to rental like 6 months after a theatrical presentation and then went to home video 6 months after that?

6-9 months after theatrical debut, then another 4-6 before it would hit sellthrough, gigantic blockbusters (like the top 3-5 a year excepted starting with the 89 Batman

Hi Anthony…..nice lead-up presentation.

The plan is to put a future release out (on Blu-ray)…..I’m thinking the Friday prior to the DVD street date.

The exact timing will be largely based upon input from retailers.

Head’s-up to real scientists (as opposed to screenshot scientists practicing faux science with incorrect assumptions and speculations based upon flawed analysis techniques)…..

If you’ve got the opportunity, this may be worth your while on Thursday night….
