Superbly informative and very useful, but somewhat outdated,
This review is from: Digital Video Essentials - HD DVD/PAL Combo [HD DVD] (HD DVD)
This review is based on the Standard DVD version of the software, which makes up the majority of this product, as it includes video tutorials for all of the test patterns. Far from being complicated or needing to be an expert, all you need to do is watch the tutorials, and everything will be explained to you, as well as lots of interesting information about AV technology for other Audio/Videophiles like myself.
Then, once you know what you're doing you can simply turn the disc over and finetune your HDTV using the HD test patterns.
After i ran the Standard DVD version on my DVD player, Xbox 360 and HD DVD player, i noticed a big difference in visual quality, so i will definitely be buying the HD DVD version to get the extra test patterns.
My main criticism with this disc is that a lot of the video tutorials are very out of date, showing equipment that is many years old, and although a lot of it is still relevant, it does show it's age and could do with an update.
