2019 Finishes With DVD And Blu-ray Disc Releases Up

January 14, 2020

Preliminary format release results for 2019 show increases in release unit counts for both DVD and Blu-ray, while the 4K Ultra HD number remained as nothing more than a studio high-profile theatrical release blip. It should be noted that the DVD count will rise slightly in the weeks ahead as stranglers are tracked down and posted. The Blu-ray number is pretty close to the market and the 4K Ultra HD count is firm. The DVD release unit count for 2019 currently stands at 10,866 new releases, that is a 2.47 percent increase over the 2018 posting of 10,604 new DVD titles. This rise in output is generated by the ever-increasing use of on-demand publishing MOD (manufacture on demand), which now outpaces traditionally replicated discs by a factor of 64.5 percent MOD to 35.5 percent replicated (7,006 titles versus 3,860). The MOD/replicated ratio flipped in 2018 for the first time when MOD releases outpaced traditionally replicated DVD product offerings by 51.8 percent to 48.2 percent (5,491 versus 5,112). This trend is expected to continue as MOD publishing for DVD products will continue to mirror the book publishing business for soft-cover books (especially from Amazon.com). 48-hour turn-around will become the norm for the majority of titles released on DVD in the coming years … cheap, simple and effective.

Universal, Warner Bros. To Merge Domestic Disc Business

After a year of two gigantic mergers, Hollywood is welcoming the new year with further consolidation – this time, in the home entertainment sector.

Universal Pictures and Warner Bros. on Jan. 15 announced plans to merge their physical distribution businesses.
On the domestic front, the two studios are establishing a joint venture to market and distribute Blu-ray Discs, DVDs and 4K Ultra HD discs in the United States and Canada.

The new unit, which still must be approved by the U.S. Justice Department, is expected to officially launch early in 2021. It will combine the existing domestic disc businesses of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment (UPHE) and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, and be headed by current UPHE President Eddie Cunningham.

CTA Forecasts Show Ultra HD Blu-ray Players In Decline

More signs of the decline of the physical disc player market surfaced with the recent release of the Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA’s) 2020 January Sales & Forecasts Report, which now shows that shipments of Ultra HD Blu-ray players to the United States declined in both 2018 and 2019, following the withdrawls of Oppo and Samsung , respectively, from the category.

Most alarming is that North America led by the U.S. is the region with the heaviest percentage of overall 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player and disc-based software sales. Since the format’s launch in 2016, all other regions have lagged significantly behind.
