This is interesting.... VUDU / WalMart has rolled out a 'Disc-to-Digital' program which allows VUDU users to add the titles they own on disc to their cloud library for $2 to $5 per title. You take your discs to a kiosk in a WalMart store, which does not rip and upload the disc, but rather uses the disc as a 'key' to allow the title to be added to your cloud. Here is one major advantage of the proposed system... You do not need to own a title on BluRay to add the HD version of the title to your cloud account. You pay the fee for the HD title addition, and it will allow you to use the DVD copy as the key. (so basically, BluRay disc sales are sure to plummet among VUDU owners).

Cypress is in Orange County, just West of Anaheim.

Guess I shouldn't be suprised. Best Buy has carried Sonance off brands like Hometech for years. http://residentialsystems.com/article/71154.aspx

I knew that Samsung would be announcing a UMRP (unilateral pricing) strategy during CES, but I was pleasantly surprised that Sony did the same. With the most recent news, Panasonic and LG have announced MAP strategies and a policies which forbid sellers to put items on 'marketplace sites' (which means Amazon and eBay). The mid sized independent retailers who buy through group deals from HTSA, HES/BrandSource just got a massive break here. I think that the smaller dealers and the CIs who buy though distro may have also caught a break here too, although the distros may just take a deeper slice for themselves. http://www.dealerscope.com/article/lg-panasonic-stops-retailer-tv-sales-through-third-party-marketplaces/1?sponsor=newsletter/today-breaking-news#utm_source=today-breaking-news&utm_medium=enewsletter_continue_story1&utm_campaign=2012-02-27
