DVDs and Blu-ray Are Still A Popular Choice

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

While there are streaming video services like Hulu Plus, Netflix and Amazon Prime that are attracting a lot of media attention, consumers still prefer to have a physical product like a DVD or Blu-ray disc. According to some reports, productions and rental numbers for Blu-ray and DVD movies are both up.

Technicolor just stated that their revenues have increased by 17%.  Since Technicolor produces a great deal of the DVDs and Blu-ray discs, that translates to a greater demand for packaged movies.

Reason #1:  Convenience.  One of reasons for this is the convenience of DVD and Blu-ray rentals.  RedBox, which is huge in kiosk rentals, has had more than 1.5 billion rentals since its inception in 2004. RedBox has machines located at over 25,000 stores, gas stations, and other locations in the United States. Blockbuster offers movie trailers online, so you can choose your movie before you go. 

Reason #2:  No monthly fees.  Another reason for disc popularity is that RedBox and Blockbuster do not require any monthly subscription fees.  Streaming video services charge a monthly fee whether you use them or not.  RedBox rents movies for $1.00 from a convenient touch-screen.   Blockbuster’s prices range from $1.99 to .99 cents.  Recently they have been running a .49 cent Sunday Special for any movie.

Reason #3:   Playability.  Sometimes streaming movies don’t stream fast enough depending on your computer or your internet connection.

Reason #4:  Ownership.  DVD and Blu-ray discs are still popular because of ownership.  People still like to own their own movies because of various reasons.  Some people collect them and others like the convenience of always having a good movie around.

For lower cost, increasing convenience, better playability and ownership, DVD and Blu-ray discs are still a popular choice.  If you need any DVD or Blu-ray disc duplicated, call CC Video Duplication at 321-872-0300 or click on the DVD Duplication link.

What is Blu-ray and how much data can I store on a Blu-ray disc?

Friday, May 13th, 2011

Blu-ray also known as Blu-ray Disc or BD is a new disc format developed by a group of leading electronics and media manufacturers.  The need for a new format came about with the development of High-Definition video (HD).  The Blu-ray format allows the storage of five times the storage capacity of normal DVDs.  With today’s new Blu-ray discs you can store up to  25GB on a disc.  With a dual layer Blu-ray you can store up to 50GB.

The name Blu-ray comes from the fact that the laser used to read and write the data is a blue-violet laser.  DVDs use a red laser to read and write data.  Most Blu-ray players are  BD/DVD/CD compatible but Blu-ray discs will not play in a standard DVD player.

 To be able to watch a Blu-ray disc on a computer you need a Blu-ray Drive.  You can find some computers with a Blu-ray drive factory installed.  Blu-ray replacement drives can be found at some electronics stores and will become easier to find in the future.   

Blu-ray will eventually replace DVDs as the format of choice for most Hollywood studios.  Blu-ray discs are more expensive but as more and more consumers move towards Blu-ray, the price will fall and become competitive with DVDs. 

Clients have asked, “Why should they upgrade to Blu-ray?” The short answer is High-Definition video and HDTV.  The picture is super sharp and the colors are vivid.

CC Video Duplication offers Blu-ray Duplication with Thermal On-Disc Printing at low prices.  Please see our Blu-ray Duplication section for details and pricing.
