The Rise of Streaming Video

Blog0 comments




Not too long ago, DVDs were on top of the Digital world. They provided a way to watch a movie digitally; meaning higher quality, a feature that allowed you to pick a chapter of a movie (removing the need for rewinding and fast forwarding a VHS tape), and more durability. The introducing on TV seasons on Box sets just increased the popularity of DVD. Sales of said box sets even brought back several canceled TV shows that broadcasters thought had no audience (i.e. Family Guy, Futurama, etc.). It revolutionized the industry because it offered instant content to consumers (Don’t tell me that you didn’t enjoy that weekend you spend watching the entire first season of ‘Lost’.)

Then Blu Ray arrived that increased the quality of features and TV shows. It looked like Discs were here to stay. However, DVDs are actually dying. The rise of Netflix and Hulu shows that digital and streaming video is the new way to watch/store movies and TV shows. The best way to get into this digital evolution is to transfer obsolete media, such as VHS Tapes, Beta, Film, Mini DV, etc onto a Digital Format or Hard Drive. It’s also very easy to upload said footage onto the Internet so you can share it in the various formats. So say you have a demo reel on disc, you should get it transferred to a up-loadable format so that casting agents can have instant access to your reel.
