    it's a DVD created around the time of a movie's cinema release, for review by people in the movie industry. the quality may be lower than commercial DVDs or comparable to them, but they do get leaked out and pirated because they're far better-looking than camcorder bootlegs. sometimes screeners contain text messages to the effect of "property of _______ movie studio" and "not for sale," sometimes they have several minutes where the color is drained out of the video... and sometimes they look just like a regular DVD.

    anyway, a DVD screener is usually considered to be the most desirable version of a movie until the official DVD is released.

    The major studios have agreed to go along with the Motion Picture Association of America's proposal to stop the sending out DVD and video screeners to those who vote for the Oscars and other Hollywood awards.

    The screen ban was announced Tuesday, just in time for MPAA President and CEO Jack Valenti to announce it before a Senate committee in Washington, D.C. He cited the move as "a determined commitment to combat digital piracy and to save movie jobs in the future." Valenti added that "400,000 to 600,000 films are being illegally abducted every day...and the MPAA intends to deploy every weapon at its command" to stop this..

    BASTARDS!
