Warner announces Blu-ray titles, supports HD DVD

With an video retail industry trade show in Las Vegas this week, it's not surprising we're seeing a flurry of news involving the Blu-ray and HD DVD movie formats. Today, Warner Home Video has finally announced its first wave of Blu-ray titles, shipping on August 1: Training Day and Good Night, and Good Luck will be priced at US$28.99, while Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang and Rumor Has It will sell for $34.99. All but Good Night, and Good Luck are already available in HD DVD.

Even as the company announces its plans for Blu-ray, yesterday Warner joined in the announcement of the formation of a new marketing blitzkrieg by backers of HD DVD. Armed with $150 million for a marketing campaign, yesterday marked the formation of a HD DVD promotion group that's based in the U.S. and driven by supporting studios Warner, Paramount, and Universal, and by technology companies Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Microsoft, and Toshiba. The goal of the marketing surge, which includes a 10-city tour and an advertising campaign with the slogan "The Look and Sound of Perfect" (with a corresponding, eponymous Web site) is to raise awareness of HD DVD at retail, and give the HD DVD format an edge heading into the holiday season.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
