Study: HD, Electronic Delivery to Up Global U.S. Film Revenue to $42B by 2010

Quote:


Despite flat-lining DVD sales, the burgeoning high-def disc market and electronic sellthrough are projected to help increase worldwide U.S. studio movie revenue from $35 billion last year to $42 billion in 2010, according to a report by Adams Media Research.

The report also predicts 52.4% of the studios' global revenue will originate from the United States in 2010, compared to 49.9% in 2006 due largely to quicker uptake of high-def packaged media and electronic sellthrough domestically.

[...]

When consumers get new ways to consume movies, they consume more movies, [AMR president] Adams said.

A new study from ABI Research forecasts that universal Hign Definition players will become the norm, not the exception, benefiting confused consumers unwilling to commit to one DVD camp or the other.

Some Adult Suppliers see HD DVD as more supportive Than Blu-Ray

Quote:
The adult entertainment industry apparently has found little resistance to releasing titles in high-definition format HD DVD compared to rival Blu-ray Disc.

Quote:
Wicked Pictures Jan. 2 released the first high-def packaged media adult release Camp Cuddly Pines Power Tool Massacre ($49.95) with Stormy Daniels and Jessica Drake on HD DVD.

A second HD DVD title, Curse Eternal, will be released in February. Future releases will include interactive games that reveal bonus content and picture-in-picture sequences.

Quote:
Digital Playground, the company that created the acclaimed adult film Pirates, Jan 16
released four titles in combo high-def format HD DVD and standard DVD.

Quote:
A Vivid spokesperson said the company has 50 movies shot in HD and will release them in either format depending on market preferences.

Quote:
The New York Times reported that Vivid CEO Steven Hirsch spent months finding a Blu-ray replication company willing to take Debbie does dallas.

Jackie Ramos, VP of DVD production with Wicked, said the distributor originally preferred Blu-ray, but HD DVD technicians appeared more amenable to train them on how to author a title in the format.

We didn't get that kind of support from Blu-ray, Ramos said.

Quote:
He said both format camps were reluctant to publicly embrace adult content, and all interaction was done behind closed doors. Ramos said Blu-ray technicians eventually proved helpful. But when it came time to recommend a Blu-ray Disc replication service, they were at a loss.

Some homegrown news:

The Guardian BD includes an interactive filmmaker Q&A that can be accessed during the film. However, the back cover indicates (in very small print) that this feature is "compatible only on PC software players and PS3."

AACS formal response to breaches: http://www.aacsla.com/press

AACS LA has confirmed that AACS Title Keys have appeared on public web sites without authorization. Such unauthorized disclosures indicate an attack on one or more players sold by AACS licensees. This development is limited to the compromise of specific implementations, and does not represent an attack on the AACS system itself, nor is it exclusive to any particular format. Instead it illustrates the need for all AACS licensees to follow the Compliance and Robustness Rules set forth in the AACS license agreements to help ensure that product implementations are not compromised. AACS LA employs both technical and legal measures to deal with attacks such as this one, and AACS LA is using all appropriate remedies at its disposal to address the attack. AACS was designed to address a number of potential attacks with minimal impact using a variety of means including the ability to renew or upgrade players.

Universal to release more than 100 HD DVD titles in 2007

According to Bill Hunt:

Quote:


Afternoon, everyone. I just wanted to jump in here with some late-breaking high-def news. Universal, presumably to make up for their relative silence at CES, has just announced that they're planning more than 100 exclusive releases on the HD-DVD format in 2007...

There, now you all can calm down and start hating Blu-ray again.

Quote:


(90% of the titles as DVD/HD-DVD Combo releases)

... and continue complaining about combos.

Researcher Sees Blu-ray Victory

Quote:


Research firm Understanding & Solutions is keeping a close watch on the launches of both high-definition formats, HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc. While it's a little early to call a winner, Blu-ray has the strongest possibility to dominate the market quickly, thanks mostly to the PlayStation 3, according to the company. Home Media Magazine talked to co-founder Jim Bottoms about what his firm sees for the future of the high-definition formats.

Universal press release:

Universal Studios Home Entertainment Fuels HD DVD Momentum with More Than 100 HD DVD Offerings Planned for Release in 2007

Quote:


Dynamic Line-Up Includes New and Classic Film and Television Favorites Such As Scarface, 40-Year-Old Virgin, Brokeback Mountain and Battlestar Galactica S1


LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bringing further heat to the burgeoning HD DVD format, Universal Studios Home Entertainment (USHE) will release more than 100 new film and television titles in 2007. Perennial favorites such as Scarface and instant classics like 40-Year-Old Virgin, Battlestar Galactica S1 and Oscar®-winning Brokeback Mountain will be joined by dozens of new titles released day and date with the DVD.

Since the format's inception in April 2006, USHE has released 60 titles on HD DVD, and currently boasts four of the top 10 best-selling HD DVDs year-to-date, including Casino, Serenity, Fearless and Miami Vice.

Tapping into the studio's vast library, the 2007 slate kicked off on January 18th with the release of The Mummy Returns, followed by Brokeback Mountain, starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal on January 23, 2007. Following shortly thereafter will be such day-and-date new releases as Golden Globe®-nominee Hollywoodland on February 6. More than 90% of the planned 2007 Universal titles will be released as combo discs - which feature an HD DVD version and a standard DVD version of the movie on the same disc.

"With more than two million HD DVD players expected in the market in North America by the end of 2007, Universal Studios Home Entertainment is committed to expanding its portfolio of compelling HD DVD content and further igniting consumer demand," said Craig Kornblau, President of Universal Studios Home Entertainment. "By releasing most of our titles as combo discs we effectively satisfy consumers' multi-viewing habits, providing them with the most cost-effective option to watch their favorite films in either their DVD or HD DVD players."

Among the additional new titles to be released in 2007 are the Oscar®-nominated Children of Men, the critically acclaimed epic drama The Good Shepherd, and the high-octane Smokin' Aces. Also on deck for release this year are such highly anticipated catalog favorites as Bruce Almighty; The Bourne Identity; Meet The Fockers; American Pie; Inside Man; Pride & Prejudice; The Big Lebowski; Liar Liar; Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels; Brazil; Erin Brockovich; Shaun of the Dead; Dawn of the Dead; Slap Shot; and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

There is now a thread devoted to Blu-Ray Sales Information.

That's not to say some sales information doesn't qualify as news. It just lets me be pickier.

Paul Sweeting: A Hack Job

Quote:


Muslix64 comments: IMHO, AACS is totally busted, Muslix told Slyck.com. The only thing I can see for now to prevent the attack I have described is to put different keys on every disc! It will cost a fortune for the manufacturing, so I'm not sure they will go that way.

Quote:


In response to all that activity, AACS-LA's response has beenhow shall I say?measured.:

AACSLA Response

Quote:


Muslix himself scoffs at those sentiments.

People say I have not broken AACS but players. But players are part of this system, he said on Slyck.com. A system is only as strong as its weakest link. Even if players become more secure, key extraction will always be possible.

Quote:


I know many people of the industry try to cover up this breach, by saying I have only poked a tiny hole in AACS, but it is more serious than that, he added. Only the future will tell.

Quote:


Yet whatever the technical truth, the real weakness in AACS revealed by the episode is betrayed in this sentence: Instead, it illustrates the need for all AACS licensees to follow the Compliance and Robustness Rules set forth in the AACS license agreements to help ensure that product implementations are not compromised

.

Quote:


Much (though not all) of the antipathy toward the use of BD+ among some in the HD DVD camp stems from the fact that its response to apparent hacks is under the control of the Blu-ray Disc Assn. rather than the AACS-LA, not from the technology itself.

Broadcom Cleared of Qualcomm H.264 Patent Allegations

snippet:
Quote:


Late Friday afternoon, a federal jury in San Diego found that Broadcom did not infringe upon two patents for digital video compression owned by Qualcomm.

While the judge's decision frees Broadcom of patent infringement charges, it does not invalidate Qualcomm's patents. The ruling does, however, set the precedent for all holders of H.264 patents to be more careful when pointing legal fingers.



Interview with Xbox 360 HD DVD developer Shaheen Gandhi

snippet:
Quote:


Who are you and what do you do?

My name's Shaheen Gandhi. I'm a developer on the Xbox Console & Consumer Software team. We own all the software that goes on Xbox 360 that's not a game. We wrote the operating system, dashboard, guide, etc. For 360, I did a lot of work on the input and voice software. For the HD DVD Player, I did a bunch of DRM and integration.

Sony to slash PS3 price by 25%

Quote:


Sony has yet to launch the PlayStation 3 in Europe but already one analyst is forecasting a first-year price cut which will see at least 150 knocked off the 599 launch price.
