Porn Industry Leads Media Technology Applications…Again

First they led with the VCR, then they pushed the boundaries with Internet images and streaming video. Once again, the porn industry is demonstrating utter leadership with the download-to-dvd-to-TV model. Says the AP:

Starting Monday, Vivid Entertainment says it will sell its adult films through the online movie service CinemaNow, allowing buyers to burn DVDs that will play on any screen, not just a computer.

Vivid is a major multimedia company, so this is a big deal. It would be really neat if Vivid struck a deal with TiVo, similar to Rocketboom. I’m not a porn fan, but it would be interesting to see how this industry could push the DVR model.
