    ...the future
    Note on R5/TCs

    Over the past 6 months the major movie studios have been releasing
    retail dvds early in Russia. They do this to stop the widespread
    use of pirated telecines (which were once very common). Lately
    however there has been very few real telecines, most of the scene
    telecines you see are actually R5 retails.
    R5 retail is rushed out by the studio, they are basically competing
    with pirates, so there is little to no cleanup of the film after the
    telecine process. So the main difference between telecines put out
    by the pirates is that the r5s are done using pro equipment,
    professional studios and professional people. The quality of R5

    retail is very similar to dvdscrs, no time is usually spent cleaning
    up dvdscrs either.

    The range of quality we now have is like this.
    R1/2 retail DVDSCR R5 Retail Telecine Telesync Cam.
    Vhs scr and wps, come around the ts mark (obviously differs
    between rls).

    We will be tagging future releases as follows:

    Tag: R5 Example: Moviename.R5.format-group

    Description: Any R5 retail with english audio will be tagged as this.
    In the past R5 with english audio has been wrong tagged as, TC (ex:
    The.Departed.PROPER.READ.NFO.TC.XviD-ZN), DVDSCR (ex:
    Trust.The.Man.LiMiTED.DVDSCR.DVDR-BOOM) and DVDRip (ex:
    We want to cut this bullshit, and just tag as R5, not as dvdrip,
    just a new category: R5.

    Tag: R5.LINE Example: Moviename.R5.LINE.format-group

    Any R5 retail, which hasnt got english audio will be synced
    to DIRECT LINE english audio and tagged as R5.LINE. In the past these
    have been tagged as TC (ex: Crank.TC.XviD-ZN) and DVDSCR(ex:

    Tag: TC Example Moviename.TC.format-group

    Any illegally produced non studio telecine, should be tagged TC.

    Basically we are sick of whats happening, somebody has to make a
    stand, just look at the whole pirates of the caribbean mess!

    hope that helps
