A Perverted Point Of View #3 part 1

APPOV3
A Perverted Point Of View #3 served as my introduction to the Diabolic studio, Director Mike John, the POV genre, and the majority of its cast members. And an excellent cast it was. Leading off with the gorgeous Monica Sweetheart, followed by the porn debut of Shyla Stylez, it didn’t take long to become attached to this title. In part 1 of the preview, we’ll take a look at those opening two scenes. I’ll cover the Sylvia Laurent, Angel, Victoria Style, and Miko Lee scenes in part two, and conclude with Gauge and Kimberly Franklin in part 3 of the post. I’ve uploaded preview images and have scene summaries for the first two scenes inside.

Upcoming Scenes 1/14 – 1/19 part 2

As I did with part 1 of the upcoming scenes post, I’ll start part 2 with another old favorite – Melody Max. Melody stars in Down The Hatch #10. Always an excellent series, this edition is directed by Mike John (he directed volumes 1 thru 10), whose work I’ve always enjoyed. Too good to be limited to just one preview, we’ll also take a look at the film’s scene featuring Ander Page. We close with a look at Jenna Haze in the Dana Vespoli directed Dirty Little Stories #1, which I expect to be uploaded Tuesday. I’ve captured images, and have summaries for all three scenes inside.

Upcoming Scenes 1/14 – 1/19 part 1

I’ve just taken a sneak peek at several DVD’s which will be uploaded in the following few days. I’ll be previewing a few scenes from those DVD’s in this post. We start out with a favorite of mine, Mariah (before she went under the knife). Coupled with all natural, and rarely seen Cheyanne, the duo take on Uncle Vinny in 2 on 1 #2. Then it’s off to the beach to catch up with Casey Parker (because, as Alice Copper once said – School’s Out!), and lastly we’ll take a look at a girl that’s new to me – Rachel Honey in Dude Your Girlfriend Is In A Porno #4. I’ve captured images, and have summaries for all three scenes inside.

VB At CES: 3D on Parade

One of the most featured technologies at CES this year was 3D video. All the major manufacturers had their best stuff on display for demoing. Panasonic was showing off their first-to-market consumer-level 3D camcorder (see below for specific details). Here’s a video showing the demo they had set up. In the background, you can here the Panasonic rep describe the basic technology. In summary, the camera simultaneously records two images from slightly different perspectives, then interlaces them in a way that can be deciphered by the glasses, and displayed to the appropriate eye.



Needless to say, seeing this sort of thing already on the market and at such an attractive price point has very interesting implications for video watching in general, but more specifically, adult video. The question becomes, if you had the ability to download a file off the internet that could give you an immersive 3d experience but required special glasses, would you do it? Is existing 3D technology good enough to give you that extra *umph* in your video watching experience? Perhaps time will tell.

Incidentally, we’ve purchased one of these cameras for the Videobox Lab, and will be able to offer a much more comprehensive demo in the coming weeks ;)

As cool as that is, I was blown away by LG’s 3D TVs. They really hit the ball out of the park this year, and had me reeling from the dealing. Their glasses-based 3d tech was by a wide margin the best I’ve seen outside an IMAX theater, and they had an actual working demo of a 3D TV that didn’t require glasses of any kind!

Even in this picture, you can almost see Garfield yearning to break free from his rectangular bounds. Now replace Garfield with Shyla Stylez, and you’ve got yourself a marketable product ;)

Here are some people looking at what LG is calling the largest 3D TV on the market. At a whopping 84 inches with a 480Hz refresh rate, this 3D TV will set the standard for high-end TVs in the coming year.

This picture shows about 1% of the TV’s LG had at CES, and LG’s close attenton to detail in the fine art of booth babes.

Intel Unveils New DRM at CES — Should Porn Users be Worried?

intel_logo
One of the big announcements at CES this year was Intel’s official release of the Sandy Bridge architecture. Anticipation for this has been thick in the tech space for a couple weeks now, partly because of the architectural changes, focusing more on an integrated chip design, lowering price and increasing performance, but largely because of Intel’s bow to Hollywood with the agreement to implement DRM software directly into their chips. The idea is this will make it easier for movie-makers to protect movies they distribute digitally.

Intel calls this new technology “Intel Insider”. On their blog they describe it as “an armoured truck carrying the movie from the Internet to your display, it keeps the data safe from pirates, but still lets you enjoy your legally acquired movie in the best possible quality.” Priceless.

So what does this mean to the average video user?

This will only have an impact on new content delivered digitally with special data injected to support Intel Insider. If you have content without this data, you will still be able to play it, regardless of if your computer has this technology or not. It’s unclear how much content will be available with this technology implemented. Presumably the target market will be supplementary digital copies of movies that come with the blu-ray, but this could definitely also include paid-for downloads. If you have one of these files and don’t have the latest tech from Intel, you won’t be able to play the file.

Videobox does not implement any DRM in our video files.

Videobox at CES

Looking at car

The porn may have been flowing at the Sands Expo Center, but a few blocks away the nerd factor was through the roof at the Consumer Electronics Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In addition to the Adult Entertainment Expo, Videobox spent a couple days at CES, soaking in some upcoming gadgets we’ll be seeing more of in 2011.

There are a variety of products coming out that could improve the way you consume video. To name a few, some vendors focused on:

  • New 3d technologies, including 3d TV with no glasses and prosumer-level 3d camcorders
  • pocket-sized laser display projectors
  • kinect-style remoteless navigation
  • HDMI-over-IP
  • Fancy new tablets
  • Amazing new advances in TV tech, including big-screen OLED displays

The list of interesting new tech is immense. Over the next couple days I’ll be showcasing some of the interesting products I saw at CES, and how they could aide your porn viewing experience.

Stay tuned!

Back from Vegas.. WE GOT PUNK’D!!

Here at Videobox we have a friendly war going on between the VB3 team and the Content-Ops team. While all of Content-Ops was in Vegas this year for the AEE Convention, the VB3 team saran wrapped our entire section!! Every single thing in our area (from post-it notes to garbage cans) is literally covered in layers upon layers of saran wrap. I honestly have to hand it to them, they got us pretty good. but this shit is seriously on!!! VB3 better start sleeping with one eye open, because this is definitely NOT OVER!!
