The first wave of DualDiscs
--the two-sided disc made up of a CD player side and a DVD player side--arrived in stores the last week of October and the first week of November.
According to the NARM/NPD report, more than a quarter of recent music buyers were aware of the DualDisc
Sonopress has worked closely with both SONY BMG and the RIAA to ensure that its facilities have the capabilities to produce certified DualDisc
They didn't film any DVD content for this so they just put together what they had - and for that, people who already own the music have gone out and re-bought the DualDisc
The increased DualDisc
capacity places Sonopress at the forefront of DualDisc
replication and enables the company to enhance its time-to-market capabilities around this increasingly popular product.
It is our belief that the DualDisc
product represents a major step forward in the entertainment experience of consumers worldwide and we greatly appreciate the official certification granted to us by the RIAA and the DualDisc
Licensing Authority," said Andrew DaPuzzo, director of audio sales for Sonopress.
I write to you to comment on how important and valuable the audio/video DualDisc
is to me and others.
We are pleased to extend Sonopress' position as a leader in the production of new multimedia products by releasing the Independents (ce) '05 DualDisc
sampler to the attendees of South by Southwest.
In addition to the Blu-ray format, Sonopress plans to support a variety of new formats as they become available to consumers, including HD-DVD and DualDisc
