18:24:43 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> going to open the floor to Q&A
18:24:46 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> first.. website questions
18:24:58 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Plans to streamline the site in the future? Noticed it's slower
18:25:08 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Yes, we're working on making the site load faster
18:25:21 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> There were more things on the site that we pulled, and there were more images that load..
18:25:42 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> We're going to rebuild certain sections of the sites to make it faster... video loads are fine.. page loads aren't. always...
18:27:22 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q->A) You can see 95% of the stuff on mobile that you can see on the site
18:27:22 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> We don't have mobile rights for Toei stuff for instance (Toriko, One Piece, DBZ)
18:27:22 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) What's your current ratio of sub vs dub?
18:27:22 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) It's always going to be sub heavy beacuse we do simulcasts
18:27:23 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> it's about 60/40
18:27:36 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> and simulcasts don't always come out on DVD
18:28:01 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Is there anywhere on the site that you can find out when a show is going to dub again after a break? More specifically, are you planning on dubbing more one piece?
18:28:44 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Dubbing depends on materials.. best place wouldbe funimation.com/news... some thingsl ike the geneon brands we're just getting materials
18:28:58 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> we're getting s4 of one piece, it will be later this year, no date yet
18:29:12 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Streaming the Geneon tiles?
18:29:19 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Yes
18:29:31 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Is the launch of Geneon titles.. anything about FS/N?
18:29:35 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Don't know anything about it
18:29:47 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Streaming service onto consoles like PS3/X360?
18:29:57 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Thought about it,, want to do it, but it's not immediate
18:30:05 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> reason is we're looking into tv apps, rokuapps, etc
18:30:19 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> xbox and playstation are an entirely different thing
18:30:23 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> we want to get mobile right first
18:30:28 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> and then spread into console
18:30:31 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> (missed parts)
18:30:55 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Most simulcasts are 360p, higher quality ones if EVS?
18:31:06 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) We're going to have on our sites, HD subs or higher res subs... on EVS
18:31:17 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Time frame for getting tablets?
18:31:25 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Hoping this year, just launched mobile
18:31:35 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> the focus of the mobile app team is about to move onto tablets
18:31:43 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Panty and Stocking dub?
18:31:55 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) It's coming this year...
18:32:06 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Will the Mass Effect anime be on your website?
18:32:14 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Don't know if they will follow the same pattern as movies do
18:32:21 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> I don't know yet for those ones
18:32:57 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) C Control getting dubbed?
18:32:58 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Yes
18:34:03 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> (question leads into -> EVS members don't get commercials on mobile on free app, but they do get banner ads)
18:34:26 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Funimation channel on Verizon FIOS, may it come back?
18:35:01 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) The reason they dropped it... they said lower viewership, but they told us that our numbers were fine prior... we called them up right after to find out how we could get back
18:35:05 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> we're not abandoning the channel
18:35:14 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) More case closed
18:35:13 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) no more, we stopped a while ago
18:35:32 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Any release dates for hellsing ultimate?
18:35:41 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Just finished dubbing 5--8 with original cast and originald irector
18:35:47 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> will start seeing the first of that this year
18:35:52 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> will see 5-6 and maybe more before the year ends.
18:36:10 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> Q) Shin-chan S3 complete...
18:36:13 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> A) Yes... it's coming
18:36:18 <bay|AB|FUNiCom> (End)
