Videophiles are likely familiar with Video Essentials and Digital Video Essentials – informational releases that were also useful for calibrating home theater setups. Well, Joe Kane, the man behind those products, has produced Digital Video Essentials: HD Basics for the high-definition user, and it is being released on both Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD.
The DVD Acquisition and Development Group, Inc., the parent company of DVD International (DVDI), announces the release of Joe Kane Productionsâ€™ Digital Video Essentials: HD Basics on HD DVD and Blu-ray disc. Designed to benefit HDTV novices and aficionados alike, HD Basics has been created by Joe Kane, one of this countryâ€™s leading HD experts, designers and consultants. The comprehensive disc provides easy-to-use calibration tests and setup instructions for getting the most out of your HDTV set and offers valuable background information on todayâ€™s high definition systems. HD Basics is the successor to the popular Video Essentials and Digital Video Essentials. The HD DVD and Blu-ray versions of HD Basics will be available starting October 30, 2007, and will each retail for $29.95.
This should be a valuable tool for anyone looking to get the most out of their high-definition home theater. I plan to pick up the Blu-ray version.
