New York, NY – September 29, 2008 – With humble beginnings three years ago as a hobbyist web site, Big Picture Big Sound has grown into one of the most respected Web resources for home theater and HDTV news, consumer electronics product information and film reviews. With site traffic now over 150,000 page views per month, article syndication in Google News, Rotten Tomatoes, Internet Movie Database, High Def Database and eCoustics, and strong demographics, the site continues to grow in popularity every year. Now loyal Big Picture Big Sound readers will have a chance to interact with the writers, editors and with each other via a newly launched discussion forum.
The Big Picture Big Sound Forum is broken down into three categories: movie reviews, home theater news and reviews, and Blu-ray Disc news and reviews. Film review maven and member of the Online Film Critics Society Joe Lozito will moderate the movie review forum, home theater editor Chris Boylan will moderate the home theater and HDTV forum and Blu-ray expert Brandon DuHamel will moderate the Blu-ray Disc forum. The site’s other contributors will participate in the forum as well, sounding off with their own unique views on all things movie and home theater-related. But it’s the readers that will be the star of this show, not the writers.
“We’ve always offered readers the ability to ask us questions via e-mail,” says co-founder Chris Boylan, “and we’ve gotten a number of excellent questions for our ‘ask the expert’ column this way. Everything from ‘How do I hook up my HDTV?’ to ‘What color should I paint my home theater walls?’ to ‘How Can I Boost Performance from my HDTV antenna or Cable TV connection?’ We’re making this even simpler by offering a self-serve interactive bulletin board where movie and gear lovers can get together to discuss the latest movies in theaters and on Blu-ray Disc as well as the latest HDTV and home theater gear.”
The forum is now online at http://forum.bigpicturebigsound.com/. Early features on the forum web site will include a comprehensive listing of upcoming and existing Blu-ray Disc titles, as well as real-time highlights of the latest cutting edge home theater and HDTV product announcements from the CEATEC show in Japan.
