Don 2006 Movie Download [NEW] 12

The livelihood of video stores and online rentals might be numbered, now that the video-download movement is underway. The dawn of convenient video downloads of movie and television shows follows in the steps of audio music and music videos, and more companies are jumping on the bandwagon, trying to tap into a chunk of this growing industry. googletag.cmd.push(function() googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2'); ); A number of companies have already introduced video services or new technologies that support video download.Already, both MovieLink and CinemaNow rent videos online for Windows applications only, allowing consumers to download movies for 24-hour periods starting anywhere from $1.99 to $3.99. Both services also allow some movies to be bought.Via iTunes and Apple, consumers can download select TV shows from ABC, NBC Universal, USA Network, Disney and the Sci-Fi Channel onto the new video iPod for $1.99 per episode.And Google just launched an online Google Video Store that would be an open "marketplace" for all videos. Content sold would include classic cartoons and CBS shows.Not to be left out, both TiVo and DIRECT TV announced new to-go services that would allow subscribers to transfer recorded shows to a number of portable media players including iPods and P2P players with TiVo To Go and DirecTV 2Go."With the advent of downloading videos ... there's no worry about taking back DVDs to stores, no mail, it's instant," cable network Starz' spokesman Tom Southwick told UPI. "It's a much more convenient way to access movies than having to deal with the physical deeds."Earlier this month Starz Entertainment Group LLC also launched its version of a video download service called Vongo, where subscribers can download or purchase videos and play them back on Windows-based PCs, laptops, portable media devices and TVs.Unlike the pay-per-view model, subscription is the basis for Starz, which offers more than 1,000 movies as well as live streaming of the Starz TV Channel for $9.99 a month as well as pay-per-view movies for $3.99.In a December 2005 study of 488 Starz subscribers, Starz reported that 70 percent of users admitted they no longer go to the video store while 72 percent said they rent fewer DVDs and 60 percent said they bought fewer DVDs.With consumer attitudes like these, businesses like Blockbuster that have suffered a number of setbacks within the last year alone are likely to shift their business model from the conventional "video store" concept.On Tuesday Blockbuster Chief Executive John Antioco told investors the company will try to refocus its clientele less toward retail stores and more toward the online service in 2006. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle []).push(); The push toward online rental comes after the success of online-based service Netflix, which dominated the online rental service gaining 4 million subscribers last year, compared to Blockbuster's only 1 million.Netflix spokesman Steve Swasey told UPI video-rental stores are in trouble but said both the video-downloading market and technology is still too young."Downloading is more a future vision than a practical reality," said Swasey, acknowledging that the service will be popular in the next five to 10 years. "And as a future vision, Netflix shares that vision. We'll be coming out with downloadable content when the right time comes."Swasey says the problem with video-download services are their small selection of video content and that most consumers still desire DVDs -- and that the next big thing is high-definition DVDs."Downloading is really cool, but most Americans are happy with their DVD player," he said. "People want to watch DVDs in family rooms, not put them onto laptops or handheld devices."In fact, the company forecasts it will continue its success, estimating 5 million members in 2006 and at least 20 million by 2010 or 2012, Swasey said.But Jeffrey Cole, director of the Center for the Digital Future, sees the trend taking place much sooner.The center, part of the University of Southern California's Annenberg School, released last year a study about the impact of the Internet on daily life."I'm one of the few people who believe consumers will want to watch longer-form content on smaller screens during downtime, as seen already with people surfing the Web and listening to music," he said.According to Cole, teens want media that move platform to platform, and they are likely to carry on that habit for the rest of their lives.But he notes that on the other side of the spectrum, people will watch shows on plasma, high-definition or flat-screen TVs as they become more affordable."It's not a good time to be in the video-rental business, but not a bad time to be in online rental, but it's a terrible time to be a station owner," Cole said.As Cole notes, television stations might be in trouble too, losing audiences to video downloads of prime-time shows.Despite a future of video downloads, a new wave of piracy might also be underway, according to Matthew Tinkcom.Tinkcom, a professor with Georgetown's Communication, Culture and Technology program, says video downloads will re-enact many of the same problems the music industry had to cope with when file-sharing became possible."The virtues of digital cultural production are, for the manufacturer, also its shortcomings," he said. "Ease of reproduction and fidelity of the copy to the original mean that films can be quickly reproduced and distributed with no necessary attention to questions of intellectual property."Moreover, Tinkcom sees the current trend as a "cinematic version of Apple's iMusic service, with On Demand services and Pay-Per-View brokering the deal between the viewer and the industry." However, he says the film industry would be better served if it were to find a more "effective interface with consumers such as Web-based forms of publicity.""The larger problem of global distribution, though, remains, to the degree that these techniques don't address the problem of piracy outside the U.S.," he said. "This will only become a bigger problem as the studios come to rely on non-U.S. box office receipts for revenue, and I think that they have their work cut out for them in that regard."Copyright 2006 by United Press International Citation:Digital killed the video store (2006, January 12)retrieved 9 February 2023from -01-digital-video.html This document is subject to copyright.

Detailed planning of our observations of Jupiter and its satellites must wait till after we launch, because the launch date determines the Jupiter flyby date, and that in turn determines the orbital positions of the satellites during the flyby and the timing of many of our observations, including critical events like satellite eclipses by Jupiter. We're planning a team meeting in late February where we'll hash out the details, once the spacecraft is safely on its way and we know the geometry. The Jupiter plan will be a balancing act between many conflicting factors. We'll need to turn the main antenna to the Earth periodically to download data and track the spacecraft's trajectory (after all, the primary purpose of the Jupiter flyby is to speed us on our way to Pluto), but this will interrupt our observations, because all instruments are fixed on the spacecraft and pointing the antenna at Earth means not pointing the instruments at Jupiter. We'd love to make high resolution movies of Jupiter's turbulent storms, but our spacecraft data system is designed for the Pluto encounter, where we fly rapidly past a couple of relatively small targets and have months to play back the data, so we don't have the storage or downlink capacity for the enormous number of images we'd need to do full justice to Jupiter's hyperactive meteorology. And so on. We will do wonderful things at Jupiter, but we can't do everything, and we'll make our choices carefully.

Spam on P2P networks used to be mainly with advertising inside downloaded movies and pictures (mainly pornographic in nature), as well as by hiding viruses and other malware in downloaded warez and most any other file type (from zip archives to movie files). Further, P2P networks were in the past used for harvesting by spammers.

I fully expect this medium to become more important to the bad guys, as many as there are Internet users on P2P networks. Further, the bad guys are already diversifying their spam seeds, moving from just eBooks and downloadable books in PDF format to others file types. These are sent through .DOC, and even inside directories for download.

It's probably a good idea to add BWV numbers to the title of every Bach page, following the current style. Don't worry about pages that you already created though, they'll get fixed when we do the second pass checking of the BGA project. :) (Edit: Actually I just fixed it) --Feldmahler 22:54, 31 August 2006 (EDT)

Hi there Carolus! I'm thinking about starting another project alongside the BGA... do you know of any other public domain publication of the complete works (or even a significant collection) of some composer (Mozart, Beethoven, etc.)? I would like to get my hands on it (preferably already scanned, else that'd take a LONG time to get started with the project). --Feldmahler 11:11, 7 September 2006 (EDT)

Can you point me to some of those things on eBay? I checked around ebay but for some reason didn't find anything... I'm thinking that it might bring more participation if we have several (3-4) projects on different composers going on at the same time. I hope that it will not make them stall though. --Feldmahler 18:04, 7 September 2006 (EDT)

The Levite "Custom Scores" are evidently ones that he has trascribed into Sibelius in order to facilitate instant transposition, etc. Levite is one of the biggest sellers of this type of thing on Ebay. Here is listing from another seller, who evidently works out of Vancouver, BC. ( -Music-CD ). I am sometimes amazed at the sheer cluelessness of music publishers. Ravel's "Bolero" was used in a movie ("Ten") back in the 1980s (It was under copyright then, as it is now in the USA) Theodore Presser, Durand's US agent at the time, didn't find out about the unauthorized synchronization of the work until a couple of years after the fact, when someone pointed it out to them!
