Bishop Tells It Like It Is16 Mar, 2009 By: Thomas K. Arnold
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment worldwide president David Bishop's keynote address at PEVE in Paris last Friday created quite a stir. Bishop delivered an eloquent defense of home entertainment, noting that worldwide ours is still a $50 billion a year business and claiming that Blu-ray Disc is indeed fulfilling its promise as the rightful successor to DVD. You can read the full story about his speech in the news section of our Web site, but I wanted to make sure everyone heard his closing line: "In reality, the prospects for home entertainment come down to a single proposition: Our ability to continue to engage end users by providing them the most compelling entertainment experience possible, while offering our retail partners innovative and strategic new business models that will ensure the success of our industry going forward." Amen to that!
