    Video: need subscription to edited top-30

    Hey CJ, Figured I'd address your question directly since I created the Screenplay VJ-Pro series. Firstly, sorry you are not finding what you need in a "one size fits all" reel in our HitVision series. We process on average well over 450 + releases from last count over 500 labels monthly...

    Tricerasoft Music Videos - Quality?

    For the record.... Tricerasoft's downloads are not the same videos and they are not released by us. While we have a pro-active relationship with Tricerasoft, we also have equally important relationships with all of the software manufacturers as we have been pro-active on HD delivery since...

    TM Century Vs. Promo Only for VIDEO

    John, Sorry you took that personally, and sorry to see you take my comments out of context. My point however is to guide the buyer to asking the questions that count, so he makes the right choice for him.... no matter it be Promo, TM, or someone else....and to avoid the sort of tone that...

    TM Century Vs. Promo Only for VIDEO

    Video vs. Video This sort of a thread usually ends up as a flame war... unfortunately,... because users of various services often times have a street gang mentality when promoting or defending their choices in suppliers. As the manufacturer of TM's video products, both DVD and mpg2, I can...

    PCVJ Video Formats

    Thanks CJ, I've always felt the mpg1 format to be as I said, "okay", but I've been playing with all sorts of new formats since we started. Not to say that people haven't been pleased, but there is always the "next thing". The issue has been compatiblity across a broad rage of VJ...

    PCVJ Video Formats

    Okay... I can tolerate opinion, but disinformation I don't have to. For the record, Screenplay has been offering pre-formatted mpg1's since its debut two years ago. Our licensing is very strict, but our clients have been enjoying the freedom from ripping for over two years now. Our clients...

    RIAA et al. says CD ripping, backups not fair use

    Chris, Your input has not been ignored. I can assure you of that. Don't make the mistake of assuming that when things don't move as quickly as you might deem prudent, that nothing is going on. That's all I can say about it in an open forum. Doug Howard Director of Sales Screenplay...

    RIAA et al. says CD ripping, backups not fair use

    Not just the artists, but also the record labels.... it's a little complicated to explain in one post, but I'll be at Mobile Beat next week... likely hanging out at the TM Century or DJPower booths if anyone wants to say hello and discuss this further. As far as the ADJA and NAME and others...

    RIAA et al. says CD ripping, backups not fair use

    The better model is the PPL in the UK... http://www.ppluk.com Couple of comments... DJ's and VJ's (in a perfect world at least) use their material in a professional capacity. The positions and opinions being presented by lobbying groups such as the RIAA and PRO's such as ASCAP, BMI...

    VidDisc Retro January 2006

    2005 Wrap Up.... Hi Guys, Seems like one can't please everyone..... just most apparently. In case it isn't apparent, you are looking at the 2005 Wrap Up. It is based upon a consensus of current product subscriber's picks (club jocks and "select" mobiles who specialize in video)...

    I know this has been asked before, but update:

    An addendum.... I got a bunch of emails and calls after the post above asking for more info on what is going on and our opinion of the formats above, and some others... So.... here's what we have found in our search for "the next big thing." Mpg2? Old school. Too big. And big no...

    I know this has been asked before, but update:

    Well... Funny this is all coming up for discussion now on all the boards... Its no big secret that Screenplay is moving to a new format for our mpg clients. It took awhile to decide on what was best, but we've pretty much decided now...a formal announcement will follow the Computer DJ...
