Nexpak is the company that makes official Amarays, i.e. the same top grade cases all the major studios use:Thomas T said:How does an "Amaray Nexpax Rental Case" differ from the regular Amaray cases DVDs normally come in?
One of the major design principles for business based websites, was to keep everything simple so that information loads quickly and is clear and easy to navigate. Warner OTOH, with both the archive and its other store, seem to be operating on exactly the opposite principle. As I said in the other thread, while I can easily order from Amazon, Deep Discount, and others regularly from my mobile device (all I have), Warners Flash heavy sites are impossible for me to access.Jay E said:I still haven't made my way through all 150 yet and it's been 3 days...I keep getting frustrated and then click to another website.
That's a really good -- and really fair -- question. Something a majority of people don't have to think about is hearing issues others have. Good job, Bill McA!Bill McA said:Will these discs have English subtitles and/or Closed Captioning?
When it comes to high pricing for video product, I've been one of the most vocal critics on this forum. Also, what does being a HTF administrator have to do with the "price of tea" or in this case "dvds"?Thomas T said:"I'm kind of boycotting paying $19.95 a title for now"
Mr. Crawford! A HTF administrator not fully embracing Warners policies? Heresy!
You can tell form the clip at the website (link below) that the source print for this title is in pretty poor shape. I imagine on a large projection system it'll look fairly beat up. If it's source issues, not much they can do without dumping real money into restoration. If it's digital artifacts/macroblocking, then that's an authoring issue.Paul_Scott said:A poster on The Classic Horror Film Board just received On Borrowed Time via 2 day air...and he's livid at the quality. I can't easily cut and paste, but he says this looks just like something he could record himself off of TCM and about the same as making a copy off of a laserdisc. I believe he's using a front projector. Another poster got it as well and had good things to say about the packaging and from a general viewing (presumably on a much smaller display).

Is it a dual layer disc? I'd hope so for a 110 minute film.Jim Peavy said:window-boxed, meaning they're really protected for major CRT over-scan. Have only watched a few minutes on my computer monitor (had no trouble playing it on my PC despite the warning on the back), and there showed the faintest of "rainbowing" throughout the picture, which is the sure sign of an early (or pre-) DVD transfer. I imagine it'll look okay on my 36" Sony HD CRT, though..
At least I Was a Communist for the FBI and Too Hot to Handle do not.Bill McA said:Will these discs have English subtitles and/or Closed Captioning?
About 110 minutes seems to be WHVs usual cut off for dual layer discs. This suggests Warner tries to keep the bitrate at around a 6 Mbps average.Brandon Conway said:A single layer disc can hold a 2hr film without problem. Most of Warner dual-layer discs released of late don't even use that extra space, and this is with extras.
