Entertainment Business Synopsis
Entertainment is as old as mankind. Entertainment gives
pleasure or relaxation to an audience. The audience may
participate in the entertainment passively as watching opera or a
movie or playing games. People use different modes to entertain

8
themselves like Animation, Cinema, Theatre, Circus, Comics,
Dance, Reading, Games, and Music etc.

As we are now in 21st century the modes of entertainment
are enhanced at a very high level. The first motion picture was
filmed on October 14, 1888 named Roundhay Garden Scene by
Louis Le Prince. Movies are filmed on reels. As movies at that time
are in black & white color and sound less audience entertainment
themselves by seeing the motion. The most
famous movies at that time are of Charlie
Chaplin and Lauren & Hardy. In 1926 Warner
Bros. introduced the “Vitaphone” system,
producing short films of live entertainment
acts and public figures and adding recorded
sound effects. In 1918 color movies are started
to produce few of the color movie are Cupid
Angling, The Wizard of OZ, Gone with the
Wind. In September 1976 the Victor Company of Japan, Limited
(JVC) launched Video Home System, after that movie make their
way to people homes. The resolution of VHS is 320 Pixels.

Video Games were introduced as a commercial
entertainment medium in 1971. Soon in 1983 over two decades it
become a $10 billion industry and become the
rivals of motion picture industry as the most
profitable entertainment industry in the world. In
1971 Arcade games was installed at a student
union at Stanford University. Soon video Games
make their place to Computer systems. Atari
Corporation makes the first home video gaming
system after that Nintendo introduce 8bit home computer system
which is very famous in homes. SEGA introduce 16-bit Mega Drive
System which also take a big market share.

In 1982 Compact Disc (CD)
was introduced by Sony and
9
Philips Consumer Electronics. After that movie and games started
coming on CDs it has a resolution of 352x288. CD is in 700MB. In
1994 Sony makes a 32-bit system Playstation that run games on
CDs. It is the most famous system in the gaming industry. In 1993
Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) was developed by Sony and Philips
again. The Resolution of DVD is 720x576 and DVD has widescreen
width 16:9. DVDs are available 4.7GB and 8.5GB. Sony in 1999
developed Playstation 2 gaming system which run games and
movies on DVDs and in 2007 Sony developed Blu-ray Disc which
has a capacity of 50GB almost six times the capacity of a 8.5GB
DVD. Blu-ray support 1080p resolution. Movies and games are
now coming on Blu-ray which is in pure High Definition. Now
gaming industry become the multibillionaire industry.

Following chart show the market share of Sony, Microsoft,
Nintendo and some other gaming companies.

Scope in Pakistan

generation is getting more enthusiastic about Digital
Entertainment. Now as the Blu-ray technology has come and it

Process:
42
A process is a collection of contributions from each micro
operation to fulfill customer’s needs. Process refers to the
systems used to assist the organization in delivering the service.
Our Club process can be explains by the following diagram.

In the process firstly the customer will come in the club.
Which are of two type’s walk-ins and members or those who
wanted to get the membership (New Member).
If the customer falls in walk-ins he or she will go to the
booking / cash counter if he doesn’t want to get the
membership. There he will book the game he wanted to play
or buy the movie ticket and pay cash.
If the Walk-ins customer wants to get the membership then
he or she will go to the member counter to become a
member of the club. The member counter person after
getting the required information diverts the customer to the
cash counter for the payment of fee.
If the customer is old member then after verifying his or her
card on member counter the information is sent to the cash

43
counter so the discount rates can be applied. If the
subscription is expired then he or she has to renew it.
All the customer weather members or walk-ins after paying
can go to the station which is instruct by the cash counter
person.

People:
People are the most important asset of an organization even
more important in service organization. Services tend to be
produced and consumed at the same moment, and aspects of the
customer experience are altered to meet the ‘individual needs’ of
the person consuming it.

Employees:

As we are providing entertainment services by using latest
technology .we are going to recruit those people have some
technological background (knowhow of Gaming Consoles,
Projectors, LCDs etc.) and good communication skills so by
recruiting them we make sure that customer are satisfied up to

their job. In orientation program staff members will be given
instructions about operations of Elation Club. They will be taught
how the working will take place and how to deal with customer.

specialized employee. In which they are going to handle real Club
situations for example: gaming console turn off, customer have
some problem etc. Operational manager will also give his
instructions to improve on the job training program so that better
results can be seen. This will help the new employee to
understand day to day operations.

SWOT Analysis

45
Entertainment Revolutionized

Strength:
Strengths are those attributes of the organization that are helpful
to achieving the objective. We have following strengths.

• We use High definition technology to entertain our
customers as compare to our indirect competitors. All the

46
technology we use which is describes above in the physical
evidence support 1080p high definition.
• Blu–ray disk is also one of our strength. The Single layer Blu-
ray disk has 25 GB capacity and Dual layer Blu-ray disk has
50 GB capacity. So it presents the pure high definition result
as compare to HD-DVD or DVD.
• One of our strength is that we provide Multiple
Entertainment services under one roof as compare to our
competitors.
• The services we are providing are reasonable for mostly the
upper and middle class we are focusing so it is also our
strength.
• We will play movies on demand in our Elation Cinema. There
is an online polling service on our website on which the
customers can vote the movie they want to watch in Elation
Cinema. The can also vote by coming into the Club. (For
Members Only)
• As we are conscious about customer satisfaction as to our
indirect competitors. So customer satisfaction is one of our
strengths.
• We are providing enhanced services which are never been
experienced before.

Weakness:
Weaknesses are those attributes of the organization that are
harmful to achieving the objective. We have following
weaknesses.

• One of our weaknesses is that the market we are focusing is
limited. We are focusing above lower class which is lesser
part of the population in Pakistan.
• As the technology we are using is costly so maintaining it is
also one of our weakness as compare to our indirect
competitors.

47
Opportunities:
Opportunities are external conditions that are helpful to achieving
the objective. We have following opportunities.

• We have the opportunity to open the chain of our clubs
nationwide because right now there is no club providing such
services under one roof.
• If our services are liked by the people then we have the
opportunity to gain higher goodwill in this business.

Threats:
Threats are external conditions that are harmful to achieving the
objective. We have following threats.

• As Pakistan falls under the 3rd world countries and economy
of Pakistan is not stable we have a threat then people will
not buy our services because they seem to be costly.
• Political instability is also one of the threats. Every day there
is some crisis going on in the country so it is very difficult to
work under such situation.
• Religious constraints are also the threat because such kinds
of service are not liked by extremist people in our society.
• As there is no close competitor so there is a threat that if our
business is successful the other people will copy us.
• As our competitive is the use of advance technology. Every
year new technology is invented and old one become
obsolete so it is also the threat for our business.
• Public are not aware of the latest technology in Pakistan.
Most people don’t know that what is Blu-ray, High Definition,
1080p etc. so promoting awareness is also a threat.

Our Equipment
Following are the equipment that we use in Elation Club.

Playstation 3

The PlayStation 3 is the third home video game console
produced by Sony Computer Entertainment. A major feature that
distinguishes the PlayStation 3 from its predecessors is its unified
online gaming service, the PlayStation Network, which contrasts
with Sony's former policy of relying on game developers for online
play. Other major features of the console include its robust
multimedia capabilities, connectivity with the PlayStation
Portable, and its use of a high-definition optical disc format, Blu-
ray Disc, as its primary storage medium. The PS3 was also the
first Blu-ray 2.0-compliant Blu-ray player on the market.

The PlayStation 3 was
first released on
November 11, 2006 in
Japan, November 17,
2006 in North America,
and March 23, 2007 in
Europe and Oceania.
Two SKUs were
available at launch; a
basic model with a
20 GB hard disk drive (HDD) and a premium model with a 60 GB
HDD and several additional features. Since then, several revisions
have been made to the console's available models and it has
faced stiff competition from the other seventh generation
consoles. As of December 20, 2007, the PS3 is in third place in

62
home console sales for its generation.

Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 is the second video game console produced by
Microsoft, and was developed in cooperation with IBM, ATI, and
SiS. The integrated Xbox Live service allows players to compete
online and download content such as arcade games, game
demos, trailers, TV shows, and movies.

The Xbox 360 was released on November 22, 2005, in the United
States and Canada; December 2, 2005, in Europe and December
10, 2005, in Japan. It was later
launched in Malaysia, Mexico,
Colombia, South Korea, Hong
Kong, Singapore, Taiwan,
Australia, New Zealand, South
Africa, Chile, India, Brazil,
Poland, Czech Republic, and
Russia. Microsoft has additionally
announced official launches in:
Hungary, Slovakia, and the
Philippines. In its first year on
the market, the system launched
in 36 countries, more countries than any console has launched in
a single year. Due to its early launch, the Xbox 360 had a one-
year lead on both of its competitors, Sony's PlayStation 3 and
Nintendo's Wii.

The Xbox 360 console has still not yet been launched in Morocco.

storage pouch, and removable side cable

Power Generator

Electricity generation is the process of
converting non-electrical energy to
electricity. For electric utilities, it is the
first process in the delivery of electricity
to consumers. The other processes,
electric power transmission and
electricity distribution, are normally
carried out by the electrical power
industry. Electricity is most often generated by electromechanical
generators, primarily driven by heat engines fueled by chemical

66
combustion or nuclear fission but also by other means such as the
kinetic energy of flowing water and wind. There are many other
technologies that can be and are used to generate electricity such
as solar photovoltaic.

Main Terminologies
Bluray Disc

Blu-ray Disc (also known as Blu-ray or BD) is an optical disc
storage media format. Its main uses are high-definition video and
data storage. The disc has the same dimensions as a standard
DVD or CD.

The name Blu-ray Disc is derived from the
blue laser (violet coloured) used to read
and write this type of disc. Because of its
shorter wavelength (405 nm),
substantially more data can be stored on
a Blu-ray Disc than on the DVD format, which uses a red (650 nm)
laser. A dual layer Blu-ray Disc can store 50 GB, almost six times
the capacity of a dual layer DVD.

HDMI

The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a
compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting
uncompressed digital streams. It
represents a digital alternative to
consumer analog standards such as
Radio Frequency (RF) coaxial cable, composite video, S-Video,
SCART, component video, D-Terminal, and VGA.

HDMI connects digital audio/video sources such as set-top boxes,
Blu-ray Disc players, personal computers, video game consoles,
and AV receivers to compatible digital audio devices, video

68
monitors, and digital televisions (DTV).

HD-DVD

HD DVD or High-Definition Digital Versatile Disc is a high-
density optical disc format designed for the storage of data and
high-definition video.

HD DVD is derived from the same
underlying technologies as DVD. Since all
variants except the 3× DVD employed a
blue laser with a shorter wavelength, it can store about 3¼ times
as much data per layer as its predecessor (maximum capacity:
15 GB per layer instead of 4.7 GB per layer).

1080p Full HD

1080p is the shorthand name for a category of display
resolutions. The number "1080" represents
1,080 lines of vertical resolution, while the
letter p stands for progressive scan (meaning
the image is not interlaced). 1080p is
considered an HDTV video mode. The term
usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of
16:9, implying a horizontal resolution of 1920
pixels. This creates a frame resolution of 1920×1080, or
2,073,600 pixels in total. The frame rate in Hertz can be either
implied by the context or specified after the letter p, such as
1080p30, meaning 30 Hz.

1080p is sometimes referred to in marketing materials as
69
"Complete High-Definition". However, 2K/4K digital cinema
technology is commercially available, and ultra-high definition
video is in the research phase.

Xbox Live

Xbox Live (trademarked as Xbox LIVE) is an
online multiplayer gaming and digital media
delivery service created and operated by
Microsoft Corporation. It was first made available to the Xbox
video game console. An updated version of the service became
available for the Xbox 360 console at that system's launch.
Games for Windows - Live makes certain aspects of the system
available on Windows Vista PCs, with plans to extend Live to other
platforms such as handhelds and mobile phones as part of the
Live Anywhere initiative.

Playstation Network

PlayStation Network, often abbreviated to PSN in the gaming
community, is Sony's free online service provided for use with
their PlayStation 3 (PS3) and PlayStation Portable (PSP) video
game consoles. As of May 16, 2008, there are
over 9.8 million registered PlayStation Network
accounts worldwide. Kaz Hirai (President of Sony
Computer Entertainment INC.) said at the mid-
term strategy meeting on the 26th June 2008
more than 9.8 million PSN accounts have been
registered worldwide, with users having made 170 million
downloads totaling 86 peta bytes of data, which Sony says is
70
equivalent to 17 million single-layer DVDs worth of data.
