    Ode 2 Disney:

    I am finding, as I pass by my bookshelf with my remaining Bluray movies or when I rummage through the boxes of DVDs in the garage, the Disney DVD logo which I use to instinctive reach for as a sign of quality entertainment for my family, is starting to become a mocking symbol. "Ha Ha, We Wont Join UV And You Can't Convert Us" is what I hear now.

    As a form of therapy, I have composed a sonnet.


    My heart once for you was true

    now I find myself so blue

    you sent me off on an ultraviolet sea

    staying behind. Forever apart to be.

    I asked your support, "hey are you coming along?"

    Still stoic, the reply comes "we just don't want to belong."

    While everyone parties in ultraviolet light

    Still my friend, on a far away shore, is not with me and I just can not feel delight.

    Oh, please. Oh, please, Disney come too.

    To our next generation party in an ultraviolet room.

    Re: Ode 2 Disney:

    Disney just infuriates me on this issue.

    The problem is, Disney is one of those companies that knows there is a perpetual cycle involving their products. How many times have they "released" movies like Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, Snow White, 101 Dalmations, etc., etc.? And everytime they release, parents buy them up quickly.

    Then on top of that, we get the "well, I need to get the iTunes/Amazon copy so he/she can shut up in the back seat while we're on a road trip".

    For instance, the last "round" of releases, I didn't get them because I didn't really need to. Fast forward to two years ago, and now I have a kid. Well, I grew up on these, and my kid HAS to see these films. They are essentially timeless content. And guess what happens when she grows up and has kids? Yup, the cycle continues with her buying the Lion King, Dumbo, Princess and the Frog, etc. in whatever crazy resolution we're at by then.

    Going UV means that cycle is disrupted. Now when I buy the UV enabled Lion King, I don't have to buy it ever again, and my daughter will only need to buy it for her kids if she wants whatever new resolution or technology is out then. No calling home and asking me "Dad, do you still have those movies? I want your grandkids to watch them." I just tell her to download whatever service I'm using (hopefully still Vudu) to stream them, and the next gen can watch without spending a dime.

    I've given up on them at this point, but I will still be waiting to see if they join. In the meantime, I just buy the blu-ray/dvd combo packs and make my own digital copies (a time-consuming process I loathe).

        The addition of mobile family entertainment into the parental arsenal is without question, here to stay.

        Think about a crying child on an air plane being handed an iPhone with Dora The Explorer and the decibel level going to zero in a heartbeat. A parent does that one time and they are irrevocably hooked on the technology.

        I do disagree that UV 1080p is the final frontier. A 1080p UV copy of PeterPan can later be upgraded for $10.00 to the next generation of format in UV, whatever that may be. Disney will still get the revenue and have the intrinsic benefits of a digital delivery medium in which to delivery their new content to their customers.

          There is already 4K resolution now, so I definitely agree that 1080p is not the final frontier (although it will be fine with me personally for the forseeable future).

          However, for Disney, an upgrade from 1080p to another resolution in UV is not the same as it is now. Right now, you have to buy the disc of whatever movie you want, and it is much higher. Disney is used to commanding 20-30 bucks for a "release". The math is simple, and Disney is currently confident enough they can command ~$30 for a disc/digital copy as opposed to offering a $10 upgrade.

          As I said, UV is very disruptive to how Disney has made money from it's movies in the past, so I expect them to be slow to join.
