Golf & Environment converts to CD format
Golf & Environment, the superintendent’s video magazine that has been distributed primarily on VHS video format for the past 10 years, recently converted to CD as its primary distribution format. Subscribers who still prefer VHS video will continue receive it on videotape.
“The first big CD mailing was fall 2002,” explains Jim Becker, president of EPIC of Wisconsin, the producer of G&E. “We were pleased to see a huge increase in viewer responses, telling us how much they liked it and requesting continued subscription on CD.” The next issue will be released in January 2003.
G&E is an hour-long video trade magazine that is shipped free of charge to 10,000 golf course superintendents, architects, builders and turf universities three times a year. It consists of eight five-minute stories featuring tours of golf courses, interviews with superintendents, tournament prep, latest research and hot tips. It is paid for by supporting sponsors.
The CD format can be played on virtually any PC or Mac with a CD drive. Simply insert he CD and it automatically begins playing. Viewers can watch the entire program or select segments from a menu.
