Blu-ray Software Market Share Vs. DVD

Post by MrTaxMan » Tue Jan 27, 2009 7:35 pm

I cannot figure out how to read the Market Share page: "Blu-ray Software Market Share Vs. DVD". I read the description at the top several times but the numbers still do not make sense to me.

Could you provide additional info on that page, such as column descriptions? Or maybe an example of interpreting one of the months?

Sorry I didn't really update the description with the various changes at Home Media Magazine.

The first column is the market share of the top 20 titles DVD versus Bluray in units.

I guess they do top 20 since DVD has many more catalog titles so Top 20 focuses on recent releases etc.

The revenue column is the Blu-ray revenue for the week and the change is the percentage change in revenue.

It is not 100% clear to me what the top 20 means though my interpretation is that it is the ratio of the number of units in the Blu-ray top 20 titles sold versus the number of units in the DVD top 20 titles sold - so they are not necessarily the same 20 titles...

Though I could be wrong.

Hope that helps...
