Thread: What Is A Dvd Screener?

  1. #1
    The words in its' name would suggest a DVD that is released to the press and VIPs to screen the movie prior to its widespread release.

    My question lies in the fact that someone posted a hash claming it was a high quality DVD rip not a DVD screener. Wouldn't they be of the same quality?

    Or is it a practice for the movie creators to release low quality DVD screeners?

    A DVD screener is released for the film critics! To see if it's good enough for a Oscar or any other price!
    If someone releases a dvd screener when it's not.. shit man shit happens!

    What is your question really?

    the quality of the movie (audio and video) why would the quality of a dvd screener rip be any different from a regular blockbuster dvd rip

    ShareDaddy is the man to ask IMO.

    To me though, they're both DVD quality so it shouldn't matter much. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

    Sometimes its hard to get a straight answer. A DVD screener and a DVD rip are the same quality, however the screener will usually have some sort of scrolling message on the screen advising people to call 1-800-NOCOPYS or something similar. A DVD rip comes from the retail version of the DVD, no scrolling messages.--

    P.S. There are low quality screeners, like those ripped from VHS. The Star Trek Nemesis version that is floating around is a VHS screener.
