Watching your collection over and over again can get sometimes get boring. Or in my case for example, I have so many Blu-Ray's, my wife can't make up her mind, so we end up going to the theaters to see a new release.
Going to the movies has it's perks and has it's disadvantages. At the theaters, you have people talking during the movie, on cell phones etc. After spending lot's of time and money in my Theater, I would much rather watch them at home and invite my own entourage. Well now you can.
PRIMA Cinema is a California-based company that can make you a Hollywood insider. PRIMA members can enjoy newly released films at home as soon as they’re released in theaters.
So how does it work exactly?
All they have to do is download (not stream) the movie for $500 (apiece) from the PRIMA unit, which connects via HDMI. The company promises that PRIMA will deliver much higher quality than Blu-ray disks as well as top-notch sound in lossless PCM or Dolby TrueHD.
For security purposes, the unit even comes with a remote fingerprint reader, so that only the owner can play the movie. PRIMA also supports full HD and 3D films, with a particular focus on opening-weekend releases, and each device comes with 2TB of storage, which allows for 50 full-length films.
I should note that it’s not cheap. At a cost of $35,000 for PRIMA alone, the unit is for the early adopters and the elite.
Price is high since this is only the beginning. Apple already releases specific movies on iTunes during the Theatrical release for an added cost.
This is an interesting concept, is this something you would be interested in and how much would you pay for a service like this? Realisticly?Source
