Jump to Week Ending 07/01/12 Reports Here This thread is intended to be used as a master thread for reference for all the weekly sales reports from Home Media Magazine, Nielsen Videoscan, The-Numbers or any other sources of weekly sales information. Note that The-Numbers, Nielsen Videoscan first alert as reported by Home Media Magazine and The Hollywood Reporter, Rentrak and many other sources use a Monday-Sunday reporting week while the weekly revenue and unit sales figures published by Home Media Magazine (HMM) each week is offset a day with a Sunday-Saturday reporting week. With new releases coming usually on Tuesday and major releases sometimes on Friday that results in a slight reporting period offset where major releases get one less day of sales (Sunday) in the HMM revenue and unit sales data for the entire format sales figures each week for Blu-ray and DVD and some of the impact of the hot new releases is spread into the next HMM reporting week. Also note that Home Media Magazine and The-Numbers weekly sales data are also estimates and have inherent reporting errors and assumptions. Even when they may differ in magnitude in the estimates or may be biased in their methodology, especially on a weekly or short term basis their general trends over the time are more consistent and more accurate. The-Numbers in particular is designed to be more accurate in the cumulative long term numbers and may have initial weekly sales estimates that may have issues. But The-Numbers data is the only routine weekly unit and revenues estimate available that is openly available and is free from Non-Disclosure requirements from data aggregators. Also keep in mind that Walmart sales data is not currently available to Nielsen Videoscan and is not a part of their reporting and must be estimated by The-Numbers and other data sources. Walmart sales estimates are generally easier to do for unit sales than revenues generated and estimates for high volume titles have more error in the estimates from The-Numbers and HMM.. Hope this data helps to put things into perspective. Please do not place any comments in this thread but try and place them into the weekly discussion thread also in this forum Thanks Kosty NOTE: July 4, 2012 I'm just going to open up this thread for discussion as I can reserve in sequence all the data posts at the top of each weeks data set.
