Managing Director of Columbia TriStar Home Video.

that we have successfully quenched the marketís thirst for
reliable, expert and up to the minute information on DVD.
tremendous success of the new website reflects the DVD explosion
which has overtaken the home entertainment market in this country.
In 1999, player penetration reached 100,000 homes, 1,000,000
software units were shipped and over 720 titles are now available in
the market. No other
home entertainment technology including Colour TV, VCRs or CDs
enjoyed this same pace of growth commented Ms Garra.
just four months after going on-line, 10,000 people have joined this
unprecedented website which was established as an industry
initiative to cater for existing DVD enthusiasts and to introduce
the format to new users.
DVDUsergroup is achieving up to 4,500 user sessions per week and
averaging over 40,000 page views per week indicating members are
keen to stay abreast of the new titles releases and industry news.

is no doubt that the number of members will rapidly multiply in the
year 2000. To match the
sites growing popularity, some great new innovations will be added
over the next twelve months. A
glossary of DVD terms, trailers and details on the best special
features of upcoming movies and, an upgraded hardware section which
will include Home theatre equipment are just some of the features
DVDUsergroup members will be able to enjoy. Personally, I canít wait.
