    Movie Zyng Customer Service Response to Canmex "Why not DVD?"

    Rating:
    Pros:
    Cons:
    <p>Thank you to Canmex for the question regarding the format of this title. You raise an important topic, which merits a complete and thoughtful answer: </p><p>Movie Zyng sells nearly 20,000 film and television titles on DVD. Of those, nearly 10,000 titles are produced on-demand using BD-R's. The decision on the format (DVD-R vs. pressed DVD's, vs. Blu-ray) is made by the studio providing the title. That said, there is an important trend happening in the world of DVD's that DVD collectors should be aware of and consider embracing. Candidly, the DVD world is moving to DVD-R for all but the largest selling titles. There are a number of reasons for this migration: </p><p>1. DVD-R's are very different than what they were 10-15 years ago. They're way better. While burning DVD-R's on your home computer can still yield an inferior product - DVD-R's produced on-demand by a Tier 1 studio (and CDSA/MPAA) approved manufacturer have been shown to perform at least on-par with stamped DVD's. We realize some folks maintain a negative opinion about DVD-R. But, things have changed. Movie Zyng buys on-demand DVD's exclusively from Allied Vaughn. Allied Vaughn provides on-demand manufacturing and distribution of DVD's for over 100 studios, including every major studio in Hollywood and beyond. Their raw materials, manufacturing methods, workflow and security processes have been inspected/audited in depth against the most rigorous standards. Their studio approvals certifications are unparalleled.</p><p>2. As importantly, the economics of the "old world" where studios would create lots of inventory using stamped DVD's - and put them into Best Buy and Walmart no longer work. Those retailers just don't have the shelf space for more than recent theatrical titles. And, the excess inventory causes titles to be not-viable from a profitability standpoint. So, studios have a choice. Either don't release the title. Or, take advantage of the advent of the success and popularity of on-demand manufacturing and distribution the titles on-demand with on-line stores like Movie Zyng. </p><p>3. Simply put. Without on-demand manufacturing and places like Movie Zyng, titles like Movin' On won't be available for the physical media collector. And, it's way more than Movin' On. New titles like The Comedian with Robert DeNiro and Manifesto with Cate Blanchett - are all coming out via on-demand DVD-R and Blu-ray on-demand. The reason? On-demand discs do perform well - with 10's of millions of happy customers to prove it. And, with on-demand, collectors can enjoy these titles, while enabling the studios to bring them out cost-effectively. </p><p>Movie Zyng is proud to sell on-demand DVD's. We back them up with a solid guaranty. If the product doesn't play, or has a defect, we replace it. Our supplier, Allied Vaughn, stands behind you as a consumer and us as a retailer. And, they stand behind their product. They use only extensively tested raw materials. You can't buy these raw materials in stores. They're professional grade. The machines that burn the DVD's use lasers you can't get with your computer. They're designed to perform at a level that studios like Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, MGM, Fox, and many more can feel good about. </p><p>So, from a quality of process standpoint, raw materials, and performance guaranty - you can buy on-demand DVD's from Movie Zyng with confidence. Should you have any questions at all, please email us at customerservice@moviezyng.com, or call us at 844.438.9964 (844.get.zyng). We will treat you right and make sure you get a great product and great service.</p>

    Pros:
    • Great show!
    Cons:
    • DVD R
    <p>I have waited years to purchase Movin On on DVD and was so excited to see it coming out....only to have my hopes dashed by seeing it is DVD R</p><p>I will not purchase DVD R because of freezeups that ruin the buyers viewing experience. On top of that, DVD R is expensive. </p><p>So sad to have to wait for what now may never be. :(</p>
