Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.
14:03:59 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> They are here
14:04:03 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> the room is filling up
14:04:18 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> we have volume...
14:04:30 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> "we didn't know about this panel till we got here last night"
14:04:56 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> Matt Greenfield....
14:05:18 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> they have parted with the japanese companies
14:05:27 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> the fate of those titles is being worked on
14:05:30 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> some will stay with adv, some may not
14:05:35 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> you may hear more announcements later in the weeknd about it
14:05:46 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> we aren't really sure what is going on... thats why we've been so quiet
14:05:50 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> its been like a long slow breakup...
14:06:05 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> ill take a couple of quick questions....
14:06:11 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> they have 2 eps of kiba for us
14:06:46 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> q: "with blu-ray winning?? ....matt: i think its called hd-dvd threw in the towel.... q: will other series go onto blu-ray (he said 1 disc which is impossible)
14:07:05 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> a: we have to go back to what the japanese are doing and are very rarely allowed to do something before they do it
14:07:14 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> they are very sensitive to how we release things...
14:07:39 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> since most stuff is animated at SD, there is no way to increase their resolution....
14:08:04 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> blu-ray itself.. is certainly not knocking things out of the ballpark in its performance and there is a better version of blu-ray in the chain (3-4 months down the line)
14:08:48 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> q: about the racs blog post? a: we have separated with sojitz and the fate of those shows is unknown...
14:08:58 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> thats kinda where things stand at this moment...
14:09:18 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> if certain titles don't stay with ADV... we hope whoever is distributing will rehire the adv production team for continuity
14:10:22 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> q: new titles this weekend for ADV? a: probably not.. we have a couple in the works.. we haven't gotten the go ahead.. the situation was that we were 8-10 months ahead in production before announcements..
14:10:39 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> but now thats changed...
14:11:02 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> q: is anything prior to sojitz affected? a: no.... only things during the 2 most recent years...
14:11:36 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> anything before 2 years is safe
14:12:13 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> q: with the crunchyroll deal... does adv plan on doing more ad supported streaming? a: Uh yea... we were the first to do that...
14:12:20 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> we are seeing that the way people watch anime is changing
14:12:35 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> its definitely something we are working on with both our own systems and partnerships with other companies
14:13:35 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> q: where does adv currently stand in the market?
14:14:03 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> a: TAN vod is very successful... now, we were the sponsor of the newtype usa.. and that staff went to do piq... we've been sliming ourself down to video and broadcast....
14:15:21 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> (commenting how they got stuck in the bomb threat.. .and how adv doesn't have a booth this year... the booth for adv is one of adv's employee's companies....)
14:15:29 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> "why not" "because we didn't have anything to announce
14:15:51 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> if you give up the space, its hard to get it back again
14:16:11 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> q: what about adv manga? a: still going...
14:16:18 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> its a separate operation... and the person who runs adv manga is not here...
14:16:47 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> (question about more godanner... there is none)
14:17:22 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> q: when you were liquidating the stuff, were you giving away free staplers?
14:17:25 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> a: they weren't free...
14:17:36 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> "the post said free staplers with every purchase"
14:17:47 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> "that was an auction.. we moved all our warehousing operations to TRSI"
14:18:07 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> it was a lot easier with the way the market is going and the cost of shipping and duplication
14:18:21 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> we were liquidating all the stuff in the warehouse as well as things that were floating around (piq's furniture)
14:18:30 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> there was stuff in drawers ... like staplers....
14:19:03 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> im still sad.. the one thing we never did.. when we tore up the original eva studio... we kept the floor pieces and were going to do something with them
14:19:15 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> the adv building was a converted warehouse and we had stuff coming up through drains on the floor...
14:19:20 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> and away with kiba we go
14:21:01 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> dropping from net for now to save battery..
14:50:19 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> adv working on uncut kiba version, unknown about tv
14:50:20 <bay|AX|ADVsneak> over
