CAM Common; Quality issues make this an unpopular format
A copy made in a cinema using a camcorder or mobile phone. The sound source is the camera microphone. Cam rips can quickly Billboard appear online after the first preview or premiere of the film. The quality ranges from subpar to adequate, depending on the group of persons performing the recording and the resolution Billboard of the camera used. The main disadvantage of this is the sound quality. The microphone does not only record the sound from the movie, but also the background sound in Billboard the cinema. The camera can also record movements and audio of the audience in the theater, for instance, when someone stands up in front of the screen, or when the Billboard audience laughs at a funny moment in the movie.
Telesync TS HDTS TELESYNC PDVD PreDVDRip Very common

rare because telecine machines for making these prints were very Billboard costly and very large. However, they have recently become much more common. Telecine has basically the same quality as DVD, since the technique is the same as digitizing the actual Billboard film to DVD. However, the result is inferior since the source material is usually a lower quality copy reel. Telecine machines usually cause a slight left-right jitter in the picture Billboard and have inferior color levels compared to DVD. HDTC is used to label a High-definition video recording.
Pay-Per-View Rip PPV PPVRip Uncommon

BDSCR Very common
These are early DVD Billboard or BD releases of the theatrical version of a film, typically sent to movie reviewers, Academy members, and executives for review purposes. A screener normally has a message overlaid on Billboard
