Default 'Digital Video Essentials: HD Basics' -- pre-release buzz

Joe Kane is doing it again, bringing a new version of 'Digital Video Essentials' to Blu-ray (for the first time), called 'HD Basics':

http://bluray.highdigest.com/digital..._hdbasics.html

It will include calibration tools both for the beginning and advanced users, plus a new audio commentary with Kane and cinematographer Allen Daviau with even more guidance.

Street date is October 30, and retail price $29.98.

I am glad to see this also coming to Blu Ray. It would be interesting to try both the HD DVD and Blu Ray to see if the players are putting out similar results to your display.

PeterB,
The link is spelled wrong. You forgot the Def in Highdefdigest. Without the def you just got High Digest and thats not the reason I come to this forum. I had to throw in a joke it was irresistible.
Thank you for the post, though.

A definite must buy. This disc allows you to calibrate your display to play blu-ray discs as close to perfect as a layman can get, at least that's how the DVD version worked.

The ironic thing about this type of equipment testing products is that they make you realize how good or bad your gear really is. I'm not saying they're the Gospel. But, they certainly have a way of highlighting The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

I have a question.

I'm confused with all these version. I have both the PS3 (bluray) and the HD-DVD add on for the XBOX 360.

I already got the HD-DVD Combo of the 'Digital Video Essentials" disc, and I used the HD-DVD side to calibrate my HD-DVD player and I used the SD side to calibrate my PS3 (running on HDMI 1080p)

Is it necessary to get the BD version to calibrate the PS3 to my 1080p 42' HDTV?
