A pre vhs tape, sent to rental stores, and various other places for promotional use. A screener is supplied on a vhs tape, and is usually in a 4:3 (fullscreen) a/r, although letterboxed screeners are sometimes found. The main draw back is a "ticker" (a message that scrolls past at the bottom of the screen, with the copyright and anti-copy telephone number). Also, if the tape contains any serial numbers, or any other markings that could lead to the source of the tape, these will have to be blocked, usually with a black mark over the section. This is sometimes only for a few seconds, but unfortunately on some copies this will last for the entire film, and some can be quite big. Depending on the equipment used, screener quality can range from excellent if done from a MASTER copy, to very poor if done on an old VHS recorder thru poor capture equipment on a copied tape. Most screeners are transferred to VCD, but a few attempts at SVCD have occured, some looking better than others.

(Sometimes abbreviated with SCR, DVDSCR.)

Any video gamer that looks upon another player’s screen in order to gain an advantage by seeing where they are and what they are doing. One acceptable reprisal for this atrocious deed is a lengthy tea-bagging after the player’s character is killed.
My brother, the screener, tried to cheat at Halo 3 by looking at my screen so I tea-bagged his character.

Christmas for BitTorrent users.

Screener season takes place in early January to mid-February when special DVD copies of movies being considered for awards like the Oscars are sent out to voters.

These movies are usually still in theaters / cinemas at the time so the only other pirated copies around are poor quality cams.

Inevitably, these special copies find their way onto popular BitTorrent sites like Pirate Bay.

You can tell it's a screener because there's a watermark that pops up every so often saying "For Your Consideration".
Jim: Do you guys want to go see Django at the movie theatre on Thursday?

Jim: Oh sweet.

Humans who can't stop fucking with, texting/looking at, their smart phone screen.
Texting while walking the Fucking Screener landed a face plant off the curb he could not see.

Screeners sit in the same room with each other and text instead of talking to each other.

Screaners are the worst to date.
