Q: What makes DLQuality different?
A: Because of the way we organized our information, it makes it extreemly convienant to create a notification for a movie. For example, if you wanted to be updated on a future release for 'I Love You Man' you would search for it on the left, click 'Notify me of future releases' and enter your email and a type. You will then recieve an email when and if there is a release for that movie title.
Q: What is a CAM?
A: A cam release is usually the first release of a movie, coming out sometimes the same day that it is out in theaters, the tradeoff being that it is often of a very low quality as it is recorded with a video camera in a movie theater. This means that the audio may contain the audience's laughter and conversation, and that the video might have heads or shaky footage. This is of course, without the inherent degradation of quality such as loss of color range and resolution resulting from using a handheld video camera.
Q: What is a TS?
A: A TS, also known as telesync, usually tends to come out shortly after a cam release. It is a mixture of the video from a cam and line audio, which is usually better since it comes straight from the audio jack that is available in the seats of some theaters. This ensures a higher quality of audio as well as no interference.
Q: What is a DVDSCR?
A: The DVD Screener is usually the first or second form of a release that a movie will take that is commonly watchable as it comes from actual physical media. DVDSCRs are commonly released a few weeks before the final retail copy is out in stores. They are usually rips of DVDs obtained for awards screening or copies that are given out to family, friends or certain commercial entities with ties to the movie's producer. They might not be of the best quality and often contain a (sometimes prominent) blurred watermark that are used as an anti-piracy method. They also sometimes contain black-and-white scenes that serve as a reminder that it is a pre-release copy of the movie.
Q: What is a R5?
A: These are a newer category of releases that sceners have decided to create since the increased influx of releases which have a source coming from Asian countries that leak the DVD earlier than the release date. The video is seldomly of bad quality and resembles a DVDSCR or DVDRip. The audio, which is sometimes dubbed in another language than English may be synced with that of a lower quality release, so be wary of downloading R5s! Make sure to download the sample beforehand to check the audio.
Q: What is a DVDRip?
A: The quintessence of a release, DVDRips come straight from the retail DVD, usually on the same day or even a few weeks before the actual DVD is out in stores if a group's supplier gets his hands on an early copy. The quality is inevitably very good, sometimes in two CDs in order to do the movie justice, especially if it is a longer one. If one wants to watch a movie in its best quality, without compromising disk space or bandwidth, a DVDRip is the way to go, and most times, it is worth the wait. Editor's Tip: It is not uncommon, however, for the common viewer to watch the movie in R5 or DVDScr quality and then download the DVDRip copy for their collection even if they don't watch it.
Q: What is a BD-Rip?
A: If you have the disk space and bandwidth, this is the copy of the movie you want to keep. BD-Rips are a compressed version of Blue-Ray disc format of the movie. These releases are usually the last to come out, but their quality far outweigh the wait one has to go through to get them. They usually come in weighing 2 or more gigabytes in size, but keep in mind that they are also most times encoded in H.264, which means that a fairly modern CPU and graphics card are needed to play them. One might also find slightly older releases that are called HDRips, which are of practically the same quality but come from the now dead format of HD Discs.
