DVD/Blu-Ray/HD DVD/iTunes All Put In Perspective.
Hello everyone, I'm new to the boards but I been coming to DVDactive for awhile just never registered but anyways. I just need to get this off my chest because I think it may make sense to some if not all. Everything I'm about to mention & say is techinally true no matter how you want to put it. So, here I go.

I'm going to start off with this obsured format war. Okay, for one it's great that they have improved the quality of the home theatre experience but truth of the matter is this Blu-Ray Vs. HD DVD war is about as stupid as it comes. This war has been going on since I believe 2002 & It's become a joke. Blu-Ray & HD DVD have only 3% of marketing sales for movies for home theatre. That's it! There has been a ton of polls over the years asking such things as "Which format will you be with?", or "Will you switch from DVD to one of the HD formats" & they have stayed pretty much the same as most folks of about 86% are staying with DVD & those are not the people who are waiting for this "format war" to end to switch. In all honesty, they are very smart. No one has said DVD is going anywhere none to less say the studios are switching to the new formats & dropping DVD. If they did they would have switched already years ago (I know this business pretty damn good & believe me it would have happend already). Also you can upconvert your DVDs to HD 1080i which is small diffence compared to 1080p with certain players. Truth of the matter DVD holds 97% of the market in sales. What most of the public doesn't know is studios aren't even sure if either of these formats (Blu-Ray & HD DVD) will last. Kodak has a Holographic Disc in the works that is expected to be out within the next 3 to 6 years which is "supposely" going to change the home theatre experience (who knows?) plus now with news such as Apple getting involved with movie downloading through using iTunes on purchasing & renting...that is going to be a hugh factor with studio's decision on where to go as sales show downloading purchases of movies on iTunes have out sold Blu-Ray & HD DVD all together plus to make things worse for the two formats all major studios have signed with Apple. Hell, Fox has a digital copy agreement with iTunes to transfer your DVD to iTunes to put it on your iPhone, iPod, & so on. Did I mention the transfer quality is to HD 1080p as well.

I actually laugh at the small amount people who are jumping the gun & deciding to stop purchasing DVDs (which isn't going anywhere) & jumping to mainly Blu-Ray or some to HD DVD (why? I don't know). A small amount think Blu-Ray is going to become the "main format" & if you believe that? then think twice because sales are not improving for either format by any margins why do you think both brands are cutting prices or having bargin deals going on? because business is bad for both formats. Also, DVD sales are down 2% but that 2% is from they think the format war or it could possibly be the downloading thing. That something that not know one knows for sure.

Okay, your going to say well...Blu-Ray has pretty much all the studios right? Yes. they just don't have Paramount who isn't jumping anytime soon from HD DVD & for those who think they are? then you have no clue what's going on then. Universal is with HD DVD but may end with either format as there main interest is in possibly just doing downloading & DVDs. That's probably the best move & I'm sure most if not all will end up doing that but then again, all studios are signed with iTunes to do downloading movies. So, the first step is already made.

Truth of the matter is this. When it comes down to it most "experts" believe Blu-Ray & HD DVD or which ever one comes out to win this "media HD format war" will end up losing all together. Sales are not improving for either format & studios may jump ship sooner or a not to distant later because most (people) are staying with DVD or showing way more interest in purchasing/streaming movies through iTunes & having it on all sorts of different entertainment platforms.

On a side note: I have nothing against either HD formats meaning Blu-Ray or HD DVD but neither is going to last the test of time like DVD has & will for years to come. An which ever one does win (two HD formats) will probably end being the third party format behind DVD & Streaming. Statistics show online streaming/downloading is going to be the one to come out on top above the two HD formats. Will just have to wait & see if it can knock out DVD but there is just to much now for really either HD format to walk away strong or just walk away.

I'm not here to start anything. I'm putting things in a pretty well put perspective.

My take on streaming media is that it isn't going to be as popular as everyone thinks.
I know iTunes is popular and a lot of people like streaming media but I think people grossly misjudge how many people want hardcopies of their media.

Now of course you can download the movies to iTunes, crack the encryption on the movies or convert the format and burn it to a DVD but I'm talking true studio produced harcopies with special features and neat packaging.

I for one will never download a movie (P2P or legally) and call it good enough for my collection, I will always want that physical hardcopy of the media.

I know quite a lot of you (even those of you with media PC's that rip the movies to the hardrives anyways) agree that hardcopy or no copy is the way to go...

Inaccuracies? yea okay there dude. Whatever you want to say. I'm in the entertaiment business. The only idoits would be the consumers. I can see I'm dealing with arrogant & ignorant individuals who already think they know everything there is to know.

As far as spelling & grammatical errors & such things. There probably is errors (I know for a fact there are a few).

Loads actually. Me arrogant and ignorant? What kind of person joins a site and then goes on to post his opinion as if it were gospel? How f**king narcissistic are you? I see you're now having a go at us for being 'behind the times' in another thread. If you're 'in the entertainment business' (does hairdresser count?) you must know that we're at the mercy of PR agencies and press sites. I'd also expect someone 'in the entertainment business' to know that you can up-convert DVDs to 1080p, not just 1080i. That's one of the inaccuracies in your rambling excuse for a post. Kind of pisses on your 'everything I say is technically true' angle. Who gives a f**k if people stop buying DVDs and go for BD or HD DVD now? If they have the money to do so, let them. They'll be enjoying high-def while you sit around with your thumb up your arse being a smug, self-satisfied prick.

Man is it easy to get under your skin (laughing). Oh! now going to the great profone langauge use. First off u jackass, I never said there techinally anything wrong about people buying BD or HD DVD. I just simply put it as there wasting there money on a product that is probably not going to stay main stream as long as DVD has done. There is other products coming soon rather then later that will knock these two formats out. Second off, as far as the up-convert DVDs to 1080p don't know where you got that at? not unless if there already 1080p which would be BD or HD DVD but 1080i is the highest for up-converting a standard disc to a HD format (look it up you dumb s**t!). Third off, what's the problem of me saying DVDactive is not update as other websites you prick? the fact is...its true! don't get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with it. There are times were DVDactive has things before other websites do. Last but not least you keep saying there is loads wrong then show it! moron! & one other thing what f**king right do you have to criticize what I do for a living bloody s**t! I'm upcoming independent director/producer (not hairdresser) kiss my ass & you can stick your thumb up your own ass you cocky smug ass s**t!

P.S. screw you Chris!

Who said I knew everything? I never said that! (puttin' words in my mouth?) & as far you being a electronics tech. then yea, you should know about the new technology but that's your thing if you keep up or not. But just to mention, just because your occupational field is in something else doesn't mean someone can't know things just as well in other fields. It's something called being well-rounded individual.

As far as the insulting everyone comment you said I have done. I haven't insulted anyone other then that Chris dude (yea, I know he's admin.)but the man doesn't have a right to just start trashing me over a post that is just opinion. Screw that c**p!

Overall, I'm the one being discriminated on this board over a damn post that is just an opinion. The slogan for this board should be "Freedom Of Speech Is Your Onslaught To Verbal Abuse". It's absurd!

Complain? I haven't complained about anything or b***h about anything. This is just my thoughts of the DVD/Blu-Ray/HD DVD from my perspective & the second thread is just simply saying dvdactive has not been update on things as much as of late... that's all! What's wrong with two harmless (techinally meaningless) thoughts? I think everyone has taken things way out of proportion & literally taken it personally. It's not me that has a problem. It's more of some of you being...

1) Way to sensitive on everything.

2) Have been completely misunderstanding me.

or

3) This is just a rotten discriminating board with some insulting & arrogant folks.

At the moment I don't know what to think but I have somewhat of an idea.

You really are an arse. You indirectly call other users morons, can't spell for s**t, and contradict yourself between posts. Let's have a look at some of your gems shall we?

Quote: Hello everyone, I'm new to the boards but I been coming to DVDactive for awhile just never registered but anyways. I just need to get this off my chest because I think it may make sense to some if not all. Everything I'm about to mention & say is techinally true no matter how you want to put it. So, here I go.

Arrogant, and technically incorrect, but hey. The best bit is when you follow it up with these posts.

Quote: Inaccuracies? yea okay there dude. Whatever you want to say. I'm in the entertaiment business. The only idoits would be the consumers. I can see I'm dealing with arrogant & ignorant individuals who already think they know everything there is to know.

Quote: Who said I knew everything? I never said that! (puttin' words in my mouth?)

Painting yourself as some kind of Oracle on all things DVD/BD/HD DVD etc. (even the very title of the post is arrogant), and then claiming that you never said you know everything. Seems to me that you clearly think you do, even though the most basic facts in your original post are incorrect. You can't come onto a website and in your first post state your opinion as fact, especially when your opinion isn't backed up by solid technical understanding.

Quote: Second off, as far as the up-convert DVDs to 1080p don't know where you got that at? not unless if there already 1080p which would be BD or HD DVD but 1080i is the highest for up-converting a standard disc to a HD format (look it up you dumb s**t!).

I own three players that can up-convert to 1080p. Cock.

Quote: I'm upcoming independent director/producer (not hairdresser) kiss my ass & you can stick your thumb up your own ass you cocky smug ass s**t!

Ah, 'upcoming'. Another word for 'unknown'. Perhaps you could direct us to your IMDb page or another list of your credits? I'm sure we'd all be terribly impressed.

I really wish there was some sort of test before 20/21 year-old boys were allowed to register with this site. An IQ test followed by a 'am I a total wanker' test. You'd fail both.

However, I have also failed. My New Years resolution was to be nicer to f**kwitts, but obviously that didn't work out.

How entertaining.

I'm 'in the business' as well. I am. I'm a projectionist so I know evrything about all aspects of the business. The technical side, filming, acting, producing, make up, art direction, distribution, marketing etc.

Or...

... do I know about the decent presentation of film/video/HD etc? Nah. I know about EVERYTHING. HA HA HA HAAAAAAAA!

What's next. "I'm in the business".

"Really? How so?"

"Well I watch a lot of films".

Is there a point to my post? Not really.

I'm off to waste some more money on Blu Ray's.

Roll on the BD vs Holographic Disc War.

"BLU RAY, BLUE RAY, BLUE RAY".

Hopefully Admin and regulars will take the above for the joke that it is.

Scottland, you are a shining example to us all. At least when I'm wrong or unsure about something I'll say so. I find technical advice on this site very helpful at times and am only too willing to be proved wrong simply because I don't know everything.

(puttin' words in my mouth?) & as far you being a electronics tech. then yea, you should know about the new technology but that's your thing if you keep up or not. But just to mention, just because your occupational field is in something else doesn't mean someone can't know things just as well in other fields. It's something called being well-rounded individual.

As far as the insulting everyone comment you said I have done. I haven't insulted anyone other then that Chris dude (yea, I know he's admin.)but the man doesn't have a right to just start trashing me over a post that is just opinion. Screw that c**p!

Overall, I'm the one being discriminated on this board over a damn post that is just an opinion. The slogan for this board should be "Freedom Of Speech Is Your Onslaught To Verbal Abuse". It's absurd!
sigh - reminds me of The Wiz poster....

As you put it, you say that the only idiots would be the consumers everyone on this website that makes a comment on this forum are consumers so why would we not take it as an insult?

Scottland: An which ever one does win (two HD formats) will probably end being the third party format behind DVD & Streaming Now this is the strangest comment of the lot for one so "knowledable". Quite simply High Definition video - either Blu-Ray or HD-DVD - is the death-nell of DVD. It's the evolution of video and evolution moves forward, never backward. Streaming will become big - but it is a number of years away becoming an effective alternative to discs.

Again, not very knowledgable about how technology in that particular area is progressing, I would say that until the PC and HDTV become one piece of kit in the living room, streaming and downloads will always lag behind using a hard copy of your preferred film. Personally, working with PC's give me the s**ts. They never work when you actually need them for something important or need them to do something over and above doing some word processing. (My own experience of PC's obviously)

The further away they are from my film viewing, the better I like it. If I want to watch I Am Legend in HD, I'll be going to grab the disc and watch it rather than faff about logging onto a site, registering, inputting credit card details, waiting for download, burning to disc or hooking up the PC to the TV to finally watch it.

And without sounding like Scottland, I believe (at the moment at least) most film enthusiasts think along the same lines. I'm not disparaging folks out there who are into downloading movies. More power to you for having the know-how and patience to persevere with it but I think film is film and the PC (in it's current form) is a PC and never the twain shall meet until the two technologies (Screen and PC) can come together.

You people are a joke or have completely mistaken everything. I'm trying to clear the air here (to the bitter/hateful MB warfare going on here) & all everyone does is attack. What is wrong with you all? Chris go to hell f**ken prick! insult me of my intelligence & my career (again!). Who the hell do think you are? Where do you even have the right to do so? because you are some little f**ken (probably, fat) guy behind a desk running a little website makes you able to judge everyone? you've already have been discriminating. You've also have done personal harassment. Hell, your like a internet predator. Do you have criminal record? Talk about the biggest f**ken asshole(Chris). Chris as admin. you really show your act of professionalism (horrific as it is). Some of you have some serious issues though & clearly don't understand what I was trying to say & have taken things way out of proportion like I'm the bad guy here. I'm getting attack for simple opinion & that clearly shows this board has no freedom of ones opinion. It seems most, if not all have taken eveything way beyond for me to even bother responding too. Let alone, waste my time to respond to pig-headed people. This website definitely needs to be looked into for the treatment & verbal abuse this board shows. DVDactive is not friendly by any means.

P.S. Chris, you keep saying I can't spell worth s**t as you so nicely put it (up yours!). then show where I have made some mispelled words?  



Again, who said DVD was dying because of these other two formats?

I have a good question.  To be in the biz, what do I need?  I've got my name mentioned in the credits of a documentary on Halloween and also a quick mention of the message board that I own in the very same documentary.  Does that make me in the biz?  Wink

Someone said Blu-Ray over the Holographic disc. Do you have any idea what the Holographic Disc will bring? let alone do?

It's just amazing how some of you think & honestly believe Blu-Ray or HD DVD (maybe on HD DVD) will be the new format of the future & years to come? There is to much in development for these two formats last amount of time like DVD has done.

Some of you keep saying I'm incorrect on everything then show it? prove me wrong? I haven't seen one individual show me any kind of statistics or proof yet. Just word of the mouth.

There has been only one thing people have proven me wrong on & that is up-converting thing being up to not just 1080i but to 1080p even though no one has said it's just near the quality of 1080p. Its not full 1080p HD.

If everyone hates me & so on then prove me the f**k wrong?

How the saying goes "Bring It!"

I'm not even going to bother to answer because one, it's just insult towards me (another personal attack) & second off, sarcastic b/s.

I'm hated by this board so much. Why? who hell knows! mainly it's for stupid ass reasons that have been completely mistaken for but if you can't stand me then? why don't you just report me then or just ignore me if I'm such a "arse" to everyone (it's the opposite way more like it). It doesn't make any sense!
