What is DVD w/PPR?

PPR stands for Public Performance Rights. A DVD w/PPR license permits the buyer to use the film in non-theatrical venues for educational purposes, fundraising events, community screening and more. Standard educational DVD w/PPR purchases are in perpetuity for use by the institution, its staff and students. Organizations, community groups wishing to screen the film in non-theatrical venues can purchase DVD w/PPR rights for one event. In many cases, events with an audience of 50 people or less are discounted. Films purchased without Public Performance Rights are restricted for individual viewing only. For additional information, write to info@soundviewmediapartners.com.

What is a DSL?

DSL stands for Digital Site License. A DSL permits the buyer of the license to host the film on a password-protected or locked system for the term of the license. A DSL allows unlimited streaming for the term of the license. Standard license terms are sold in 1,3 and 5 year increments for educational use. Non-educational DSLs are available for custom terms as short as 1 day and make for wonderful online events. Delivery of DSL materials are available as DVD which can be ingested for the site or as digital files. Inquiries about non-educational DSLs use should be sent to info@soundviewmediapartners.com,

What is a DVD-R?

Almost all of our films, when delivered on DVD, are are beautifully packaged in standard Amaray cases. There are a few, however, that are available only as DVD-R. These are versions of the film delivered on disc without commercial packaging. In our new era of digital, some filmmakers elect to not replicate commercial versions. These film are noted on their pages just above the License Option Pull-Down Menu to alert you of the deliver format.  They play in virtually all DVD players.
