After a couple years of offering DVDs as one of our choices for wedding film delivery, as of March 1st, thumb drives with high-definition video will become our primary form of delivery for our Boston wedding films. We will still offer DVDs as an add-on option for those couples that would like them to have them, but the primary delivery option will be thumb drives.
Why are we making this change? First of all, it will allow us to deliver our films in the highest quality possible – high definition. We film all our weddings, events and corporate projects in high definition; therefore, we want to deliver our final product in this high quality format as well. With DVDs, the final output is converted to standard definition, which lowers the quality of our films.
Secondly, we want to stay up to-to-date with the current trends. Just as mp3 files have replaced CDs in the music industry, videos and films are heading in the same direction. With Netflix, Hulu, and Apple and Roku TV boxes gaining in popularity, the future of video files will be in a digital format. Apple has already shown this trend as they have eliminated DVD drives from their most recent line of laptops. Any couple that meets for a consultation in our office, watches our films from an ipad in high definition through an Apple TV box.
Finally, with a digital file of your wedding film, you can share it with however many people you want. There is not just one copy for you and your parents. If your grandmother, sister, or best friend wants a copy, you have the ability to share it with them. Plus, the wedding film will play on your phone, your ipad, and your computer.
We are just excited to make this transition as the thumb drive delivery will keep our couples ahead of the current digital media trends, with a wedding video that is in a high quality format. And, that is how we want all of our Boston wedding videos to be viewed.
