Miami Vice - Uni's Exec VP Responds To 5.1 Sound Demands

Posted by David Lambert

As a follow-up to the 2nd Annual TV-DVD Conference, which our very own Gord Lacey participated in all day yesterday out in L.A., Video Business posted this article (registration required) in the online version of their industry-targeted magazine.

The story discusses the effect of the Internet on the TV-on-DVD phenomenon, concentrating on how online e-tailers can stock a deeper inventory with a wider variety of choices than brick-and-morter stores. Other aspects of Internet involvement were brought up, and even though sites like TVShowsOnDVD weren't mentioned in the write-up, it was made clear that the studios are interested in direct feedback from the fans.

Miami Vice was held up as an example of this type of interaction, which led to a comment by one of the execs from Universal who was quoted in the story. That quote, below, reveals something of interest to fans looking forward to the release!
    The Internet also can provide tips on what's going well with a release--and what's not.

    After some site surfing, Ken Graffeo, executive VP at Universal Studios Home Video, noticed irate rumors that Miami Vice would not come equipped with 5.1 quality sound.

    "All the fans came out for that," he said of its impending release. "And yes, we're putting it out in 5.1."

That sounds great, and will sound great in my home theater as well! Don't forget that the best word we have on the subject is that all the originally broadcast music ought to be included on the upcoming release, which we understand should be on Jan. 18th. We're still waiting on Universal's official announcement for this release, but if that street date is accurate, we could be getting the news any time now. Stay tuned!
