This Tuesday, the second Blu-Con conference was held in Beverly Hills, California.  Blu-Con is entirely dedicated to the topic of Blu-ray and its potential future within the movie, hardware, software, gaming and retail industries.   We jumped at the chance to attend, especially with all the underlying conversations about digital delivery versus Blu-ray adoption.  We were very interested in hearing how the current state of the economy had altered the adoption rate of Blu-ray and what the industry experts expected to see in the coming months / years.The conference kicked off with an opening from the DEG (Digitial Entertainment Group) president about what he expected to see this holiday season; namely $99 Blu-ray players and a higher attach rate of Blu-ray disc purchases.  There are currently 12 million U.S. homes with Blu-ray players and title sales have already risen about 83% ...

Could you imagine a world without The Beatles? Life would be drastically different if it weren't for the enduring music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. The Fab Four changed the face of popular music as we know it, and the effects can still be felt today. However, despite their ubiquitous popularity, access to their music has been strangely guarded. Up until recently (September 9th, 2009, to be exact), the only way to get their albums on CD was to buy old copies from 1987, devoid of fine sonic detail, and many mixed in stereo when The Beatles intended them to be mono. Their songs still cannot be found on any MP3 download service, and, by extension, the group was MIA from any rhythm game, such as Rock Band or Guitar Hero.But that all changed when ...

“We really needed good control over the sound, and we got that with digital, but we lost the sound. We don't have the sound anymore, unfortunately, it's gone.”     Neil Young, 1993, from MTV's “Week In Rock” 1993“The Compact Disc was a good idea.”     Sony Music SACD insertBack in the early 1980s, a star was born. The compact disc arose from various engineering labs as the much-touted successor to the venerable LP. Praised for its “perfect sound” and progression beyond the noisiness of records, compact discs soon became the audio format of choice. In a few short years, hundreds of thousands of the little plastic discs were being produced, as the CD raced ahead and analog records fell behind. All was well – seemingly – but there were a few analog holdouts who screamed “digititis!” This new format is ...

Wandering around the show room floor at the 20th Anniversary 2009 CEDIA Expo offers a daunting experience, as turning your head 180 degrees will likely reveal no less than two new flat-panel televisions, a psychedelic set of speakers, and a super-secret enclosure available only for the elite (or, more like the patient).  New technology is spilling from the seams in brightly-light, ultra-colorful displays aiming to grab your attention in any way possible.  Underneath the glitz and glamour behind brand-spanking new electronics from major and minor labels alike, however, this expo also showcases many items that are just about to hit the market.  It is, after all, an event largely constructed to entice dealers with new retail “stuff” to offer consumers.  Let’s take a look at some of the enticing (and eyebrow-raising) flat-panel displays and Blu-ray players found on the CEDIA ...

New brands are popping up on Twitter daily and the high-end CE industry is no exception.  Whether it's a large audio manufacturer, a high-end dealer, trade show representatives or simply a fellow publication, Twitter is primarily being utilized by companies that want to broadcast news or link potential customers to their home page. Most brands are simply using Twitter to make sure new and existing customers have an alternative method to finding them, but there are savvy, intelligent brands within our industry that are using Twitter as more than a simple soapbox.  These companies have figured out that it doesn’t matter how many Twitter followers you have, but rather how you interact with them in a meaningful, impacting way to ensure future success.  Regardless of all the social networking methods out there, there’s no method of communication that allows such ...
