Sony Launches Real-time Movie Database on BD-Live

Posted June 18, 2009 09:00 PM by Juan Calonge

Sony PicturesIn September, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will unveil MovieIQ, its latest BD-Live feature. This will give Sony Blu-ray fans access to a real-time, continuously-updated movie database, with scene-by-scene cast and crew data, music and soundtrack information, and trivia. Every new and major catalog Blu-ray Disc release down the line from the studio will support this feature.

The first Blu-ray titles to include the feature will be 'Angels & Demons', 'Easy Rider', 'Punch-Drunk Love', 'The Quick and the Dead', 'Silverado', and 'Sex, Lies and Videotape', the studio said.

“We know many people interrupt their movie-watching experience to look up the filmography of an actor or to find out more about a song playing in the background,” said Lexine Wong, SVP of worldwide marketing for SPHE. “Now through MovieIQ, movie lovers can dive into constantly-updated information about the movie they are watching without leaving their sofa.”

Engadget has a nice gallery showing how MovieIQ will look on 'Angels & Demons'.

Finally! I have been asking studios to do this for years ever since we ran our poll asking what BD-Live feature people wanted to see most. It was one of the top suggestions, and I made sure every time I got a programmer's ear I would whisper about this feature. I can't wait to see how Sony implemented it!

Other studios should think of doing something similar.

This is the first BD-Live feature that sounds like something I'd be interested in. Frequently I'm wondering where I've seen an actor or what other movies they've been in. If I can look that info up immediately that will be useful; however, if there is the 2-3 minute download delay like some other BD-Live stuff I've tried it won't work. It needs to be as fast as when you go to a page on a website.

I really think this feature is kind of useless and extremely limited at best.A hotlink to IMD(Internet Movie Database), among other far superior sites would have been a heck of alot more useful and easier to implement.Most people who want to access info like this would simply find it far more convenient and useful to use their pc/laptop to access these kind of info/features, and in a far more expanded enviornment.

I can think of about 100 other features Sony could add to BDLive to make the expirience more than the borefest it is now.They should pay attention to some of the things Disney and Lion's Gate are doing with BDLive and go from there.

This is in a way better than IMDB since with IMDB you have to pay to see the full version (IMDB Pro). Sony rocks! This can be a real selling point for blu-ray.

Hooray for Sony! That's definitely the best BD Live feature I've heard about so far.

There's no need for this feature to be only accessible via BD-Live and the internet. Since the vast majority of the data could be put onto BD discs. It would also be much faster if loaded from or copied to player memory devices from the BD discs than downloaded from the internet.

I also see this article is flagged as relavent only to the US. So this feature will never be coming to Europe?
