4K Sex Sells – Porn Drives Technology

pornarticle1

The first 4K porn is now available from a company called Huccio. This may be a sign that the porn industry will push a faster adoption of 4K video throughout the culture. When porn first appeared in 1080p high definition, some viewers were not sure they wanted to see so much detail. 4K or Ultra HD, of course, shows five times the resolution detail, but we doubt that will slow it down. Video and porn have been linked ever since the invention of the VCR.

The commercial Internet and the adult entertainment industry have also been linked from the very beginning. In fact, the adult entertainment industry pioneered early Internet technology. They are credited with developing streaming video, online credit card processing, cheap web hosting and even affiliate programs. They were working on these technical inventions long before mainstream media saw the light. And they learned that higher technical quality attracted higher prices.

Live chat is another technical achievement that was developed by the adult entertainment industry. Like the others, this is taken for granted today. Some even claim that broadband connections were partly developed by porn companies. True or not, it was certainly in their interest.

We’re not saying this industry is contributing great art, insight or even contributing to society, only that they invented a lot of the Internet that we take for granted today. The adult entertainment industry innovated technologies long before sites like Amazon, eBay, PayPal started.

Some statisticians claim porn industry revenues are as high as $13 billion a year in the U.S., but it’s hard to measure that directly. However, it’s no coincidence that the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the Adult Entertainment Expo are occurring simultaneously in Las Vegas, and right next to each other. Not long ago DVD sales were 80% of the porn industry, today it is only 30% thanks to the Internet.

Huccio is an adult content Web site that is mastering all of its content in 4k and releasing it in 4k. And don’t think it’s only porn companies that profit. There are plenty of large corporations who have chosen to make money through this eternal industry. Marriott, Westin, Hilton, AT&T, Comcast, and Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation to name just a few. According to PBS Frontline, AT&T is making more than $100 million a year from online pornography. For more information see corporations that profit from porn.

According to recent articles by Forbes and CNBC, the adult industry is experiencing a decline. The effects of piracy and the recession have left its mark on the porn industry. Regular viewers cut their porn expenditures when times are tough. But it is still a giant industry that continues to push technology.

Duplication and Transfer Business

Start Your Own Video Duplication and Transfer Business

The duplication and transfer businesses are a natural for anyone who produces videos. You probably already own most of the equipment. Why not turn it into profit? And if you don’t own the equipment, this is a low cost business to start. And you can outsource the work. Transferring photos, slides and all kinds of film to DVD, USB drives and the Cloud is a bigger business than you may realize. There’s a reason CVS, Walgreen’s and every other chain offers these services. Because there’s a lot of money in it!
