Pirate movie lingo

An update for people wanting to know the difference on downloadable movie quality:

The earliest copies leaked are the “screeners” — advance copies — sent to critics and film industry professionals.
Then there’s CAM (worst quality) camcorder recordings made by cinema goers.
Then there’s “telesync” leaks — a professional camera on a tripod in the projection booth, with a direct connection to the sound source
Then there’s “telecine” leaks, where the cinema film is illegally copied to video.
Then DVDRIP, which is an AVI file ripped direct from DVD quality sources, with or without all audio channels and subtitles included.

Well, there you go.. Happy movie watching!
