LLVJ delivered via web
« on: September 13, 2006, 11:40:54 PM »

Hello all,
I am no expert, but I am keenly aware of my changing habits with regards to media consumption.  Now I know there are alternative delivery systems and formats, but for me iTunes has become a centerpiece for me to receive my customized programming whether it is "The Office" TV show or "This Week in Tech" Podcast with Leo Laporte.  Now with the first iTunes introduction of legal movie purchases and the pre-announcement of the iTV, it seems like there is a major shift that is gaining momentum both in terms of media delivery mechanisms and in the faces of media creators.  What a great opportunity to create that syndicated LLVJ that perhaps was part of the original vision for Michael a few years ago?  

I don't know all of the details involved in the LLVJ and I appreciate the hard work that Michael and Chris put in to make a quality product.  My guess is that the two of them are all over alternative media delivery.  

I am just thinking out loud about the potential for future LLVJ being delivered via the web with DRM and the potential for playback on TVs via media centers or iTV.  

Just some thoughts on the topic and I hope that the benefits of a quality web-based delivery like quicker turn-around, more time-sensitive content (Adobe LR tutorial), as well as the potential for lower production costs(?) will lead to the utilization of these alternative deliveries in our near future.  

Thanks for any discussion on this.

We have been looking long and hard at online delivery. The technology hasn't been there yet, but it's getting closer. We are going to be doing some experiments soon. Stay tuned, as they say.

Amen to all that you suggest Jeff!

As far as I am concerned the less 'process' that gets between what I create and what you view the better. We have always said that DVD-Video was an interim step until the 'pipes' & technology are big enough to allow viewers good quality over some sort of 'net delivery. Just as movie theatres are now starting to convert to digital delivery, we too will make the transition to no bits of plastic, no paper packaging, and above all no middleman delivery problems such as we experience with a fulfillment house, the mail and other clumsy & expensive hard package delivery systems. Bring it on!!

The reality is however, that the nirvana I describe is closer today than a week ago, but still someways off.

Thanks for the updates Michael and Chris.  I really look forward to your future efforts.  I just love to see great content available via these alternative deliveries and believe that LLVJ would be a wonderful addition to the on-line media library.  Good luck and thanks again.
Jeff

Stuff iTunes.  Keep it on DVD.  I have higher quality requirements than some.

We would not abandon DVD delivery, just augment it. (At least until high enough quality downloading and streaming are possible).

The only problem with that is that not everyone wants to look at the VJ on a computer monitor.

Some of us like to relax in a comfortable chair or the sofa and look at the VJ on our TV - I am not aware of any computer monitor around 27" or larger.

And, not everyone has a high-speed connection to the internet.

Yep. And film will always be better than digital. Do they have internets in Saffrom Walden yet ?

Personally, I'd like to see LLVJ go 1080P.

Me too... but its down the list of priorities.

More importantly I would like to see it available more often [not a stab at Michael - good things take time] - but just love it when a new issue is released.
