Going Live 2


Custom Home Theater Pre Show Trailer with 7.1 Audio
Ok, this is both exciting and scary. I have been working on this for about a month, generated 53 GB of data, representing over 6,200 files in 145 folders; and now we are ready to launch our first pre-show trailer. I hope you like it. I went with a tech, space, rogue type of feel for this one. It may not be for everyone, so don’t worry – I have plans for the next one if you don’t like this one. Titled “Mission” it is available in nine generic formats and a customizable option as well. There should be a generic version that will meet your requirements. Sound options from 7.1 PCM to AC3 5.1, with 1080p or 4K video.

As I mentioned in the post the other day, this site is getting more and more traffic and is resulting in higher costs. That is great, as long as we can pay for those costs. These pre-show trailers are our way of offsetting the cost, while also providing you with something of value. The generic version is available for $5, which I feel is reasonable. For the customizable version, we are asking for $30 for the 1080p and $50 for the 4K. That may seem like a lot, but it will require a lot of effort on my part to put it together and make sure you are happy with the result. Why is the 4K so much more you ask? The 4K file is much bigger than the 1080p, and takes about 4x longer to render…makes sense since it has 4x the pixels. So, it is bigger and takes longer to make, that is why it costs more. Also, I have limited the amount of custom orders to 20. This is just to ensure that I suddenly don’t have more than I can handle, as I really don’t know what the demand will be, or how long it will take to produce and deliver the files to you. So, we may get 20 orders tonight…or none at all. Either is possible, and I would not be surprised either way.

So, head on over to The Digital Theater Store and check it out. There are also youtube samples available on each product page. Also, and I can not stress this enough…if you do purchase one of these files, please ensure that it will play properly on your system by first testing a sample file that is included on each product page. I put those samples there so that you would know that it would work for you, or not. If you have a problem with the sample file and feel it should playback on your system please let me know and I will do my best to help you out.

Payments are being made through the PayPal gateway. If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can pay through them as a guest using your credit card or debit card. Once your payment is successful, you will be returned to thedigitaltheater.com where you will see your order along with a download link. If there is a problem with the site, you will find the download link in an email sent to the address you entered upon ordering. The download link will work twice. So if you have issues downloading, you can try it again. I recommend that you back up your purchase. You are free to make as many copies for your devices as you want, but please do not distribute to others.

Thank you again for your support and being a continued visitor of this site.

    I think I would like a rather even more generic pre-show.
    Specifying channels in a pre-show by saying 7.1 ready doesn’t really work for me (Atmos Setup).
    – But I would still run a 5.1 pre-show if it sounded and looks great.

    I would have thought to get the 4K option even though im on a 1080 projector but since it says 4K and HDR then I couldn’t use it 🙁

    I love the sci-fi theme though +1
