    Disney WOW Calibration Disc

    At CEDIA Expo 2010 last month, Disney debuted its World of Wonder (WOW) Calibration Disc, a step-by-step visual guide to calibrating and optimizing an entertainment system. It has a full set of video test patterns and audio test tones to improve system performance. The WOW disc will be released Nov. 2 on Blu-ray ($34) and DVD ($24).

    Disney says it’s getting involved in the home theater market because a poorly set up home entertainment system can offset the post-production and quality assurance processes it employs.

    “We want to ensure quality presentation of all our content,” says Disney. “We do our part to ensure our Blu-ray Discs and DVDs have the highest quality picture and sound possible. But an un-calibrated home theater system can negate the quality and provide a less-than-optimal consumer experience.”

    “The WOW disc has an entire educational section, broken down between Beginner and Advanced,” says a Disney spokesperson. “You can learn with Goofy or dive into more technical subjects with visual and voiceover explanations of key topics. ... There are reference level tools as well as simple basic tools for the beginner.”

    The disc previews and explains calibration in a way that will be understandable to the non-technical. The first disc offers a full retail video loop and the ability to choose specific clips from the retail loop, and the second disc features an hour of beautiful nature scenes.
