As I understand it, there's quite a bit of adult HD content waiting to be viewed. Any reason to think it will not be available on BD soon after the players debut? :cool:

From the above link:

Quote:
Sony's offering includes The Fifth Element, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Desperado, For a Few Dollars More, The Guns of Navarone, Hitch, House of Flying Daggers, A Knight's Tale, Kung Fu Hustle, The Last Waltz, Legends of the Fall, Resident Evil 2, RoboCop, Sense and Sensibility, Stealth, Species, SWAT and XXX.
Okay, okay... very funny... But that's a cruel joke to play on someone so hell-bent on seeing HD, hard-core, illegal-in-some-states PORN!!!! What a let down... :(

I think some studios shoot in HD, so this will come ;) in time.

In the meantime, the chick in Species must be easy on the eyes on HD. ;)

Most of the bigger studios (apparently a relative term in the porn biz) say they are shooting with HD cameras, but several are then downrezing because of a lack of HD editing equipment because HD editing equipment is harder for them to come by than the cameras. There were also a couple of people quoted as saying that HD was increasing the time it takes for them to shoot a movie.

And it looks like the smaller studios are all rallying around HD DVD because of its lower cost of entry.

Either way, it's a $12-15 Billion a year industry that's definitely going to have an impact on the future of HD. My guess is we'll see more HD porn content on BD/HD DVD than we will studio productions shortly after launch.

Whichever side the porn industry chooses, that's the format that wins. Everything else becomes moot and irrelevant at that point.

Sorry guys, I know it was cruel but could not help it. I was going to put a smiley but I thought it would make the joke too obvious, so decided not too.

Well if it's what finally drives the nail in HD DVD's coffin, then bring on the BD porn!! :p Seriously though, unless Charlize Theron is going to do a porn I doubt I'd be buying any but who's to argue if porn helps the BD format stand erect. ;)

Who is the targeted market for porn, I would of thought it would be the average joe sixpack. You also think that porn would be a perfect candidate for online distribution. It's private, and your don't have to worry about someone finding your special stash. Also you can encrypt them for those who are paranoid.

I think that right now the porn industry will not have as big an impact as they did in the vhs, betamax war. I think that the PS3 will have more impact then porn, I can see that two years down the road porn could be a make and break deal.

I also don't see the cost of equipment as a major hinderance, once the source is made, I am sure you can encode it in HD-dvd or blu-ray. If your a big shop, you probably subcontract it out anyway. I don't see a small shop making 100,000 copies in house as the setup and time would be cost prohibitive. Who ever they subcontract out will probably have the proper tools, all they have to do is tell them what format they want.

In a way, yes. PS3 would have a bigger impact for BD than porn. But if porn is on BD, and there are lots of young and not so young people who have a PS3, the boost in porn on BD will create a domino effect, encouraging more studios (porn or not) to release their titles in BD.

I totally agree, but I was under the impression that the porn industry perfered HD-DVD, due to the cost of entry, other factors.

what you need to understand is that studios make movies, most of the rest is outsourced, the company making the transfer and masters, the companies that make the menus, the companies that make the replicating..... these other companies need to foot the bill for initial investment and in reality it is not as big a difference as HD-DVD would want you to believe. Yes I am sure that someone will need to pay for it and so that higher cost will mean that a studio will pay more for a BD then an HD-DVD but in the end if you were a studio and thought

10K movies or 100k movies would a 1-2$ difference or less profit make sense?

10k movies are a rarity in porn land. I think few on here are probably aware of just how low the volumes of units moved by even the larger studios are by Hollywood's ugly stepchild. HD DVD would still require the studio to buy/hire HD capable equipment for shooting, authoring, encoding, etc. The small gonzo studios have neither the money or the talent to cope with that sort of change over. Their girls are usually less attractive as well. As to the high-end feature studios, the only ones who have made any HD porn at all, well they are looking at BD apparently.

Are you saying most of the films are a lot cheaper than that? Wow. Even for a one-day shoot/production with half-a-dozen people total it's hard to grasp how they can be made so cheaply.

It could be very easily argued that Vivid Entertainment Group is the biggest and most recognized name in adult entertainment -- the Wall Street Journal calls Vivid "the biggest name in pornography". Steven Hirsch, the man who founded Vivid in 1984, was kind enough to answer a few of our questions about next-generation technology like Blu-ray Disc and HD-DVD. When asked about which format the media giant would endorse, Hirsch responded "Vivid is not in the business of choosing one format over the other. We are content producers and will distribute our movies on whatever formats are available. We will produce and let the consumer decide which format they like best."

Digital Rights Management (DRM) is another serious issue that many consumers are anxiously waiting to see how each new format handles. "As with Hollywood movies it is very important to protect our movies. We believe that both formats will offer an acceptable DRM solution. If they do not they will certainly have difficulty getting product," Hirsch said.

It looks as if Vivid is supporting both, meaning the Playstation owners will be playing with movies (or something) twice as often. with support from two porn studios.

I hope they don't go blind and negate the hd factor over sd ;)
