Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced the Disney's WOW World of Wonder disc, a configuration and calibration disc, hosted by none other than Goofy, to help consumers (from beginners and enthusiasts to experts and custom installers alike) to get the best quality experience from their home theater systems. It will be available November 2, in single-disc and double-disc versions.
Viewers will learn the basics of HD and home theater alongside Disney's classic character Goofy, then follow basic instructions to maximize home theater performance through an easy to follow on-screen menu. The disc packaging also includes an in-depth illustrated handbook. The Disney WOW disc is comprehensive and applicable to everything from flat panel displays and OLED screens to projection equipment and CRT based TV sets, as well as multiple sound formats ranging from Stereo to 7.1 Channel Surround.
The disc contains 35 easy-to-use A/V calibration and evaluation tools, for beginners, advanced and expert home theater enthusiasts. It has been produced and directed by Richard J. Casey, of R&B Films, Ltd.
A/V Tools in the Beginner section are designed for ease of use in the proper alignment of home theater equipment. The Advanced section contains A/V Tools that address professional evaluation and calibration tasks for specific monitors, displays, and projectors. Illustrations in the included 56 page booklet and the on-screen guide provide clear examples of properly and improperly calibrated A/V test patterns.
Disney's WOW World of Wonder disc will be presented in single-disc (SRP $34.99) and two-disc (SRP $39.99) versions. The latter will include an exclusive extra disc called Visions: Inspired by Nature, featuring "breathtaking natural and digitally created landscapes with original music scores and ambient sounds."
It will also be available in a Home Theater Value Pack (with an HDMI cable), and a Home Theater Starter Pack (with a Disney movie Blu-ray and an HDMI cable)
