AMR's Titles Database

AMR’s exclusive “Titles Database” is the key resource for business planning in the home video industry. It contains AMR’s carefully researched estimates of VHS and DVD unit shipments and supplier revenues for over 850 feature films released to the U.S. video rental and sell-through market last year. 

Long respected as the most reliable source of per-title performance data, the AMR Titles Database has just been refined, and is now an even more valuable analytical tool. AMR is now separately estimating the rental component for every DVD and sell-through-priced VHS beginning in 2001. That means you can have three full years worth of comparable data as you track the changing trends in video in 2004.

AMR’s Titles Database 2004 complete:

You can now own Adams Media Research’s estimates of DVD and VHS shipments and gross revenue on all new releases in 2004. This detailed database breaks out every important factor in a film’s performance in theaters and on video: units shipped to rental stores, units shipped to retail stores, the DVD-to-VHS ratio, the box-office-to-video ratio—essentially a complete history of each feature film through about 80% of its domestic market run. The Titles Database even includes a synopsis, top stars and director for each film. There is a list of fields provided in the table below.
