    I will definitely pick this one up. I am especially looking forward to the segment with Van Ling and the one with David Prior. Will anyone else get this disc?

    Just ordered it. Even if I only watch it once, it will be interesting to learn about some of the details involved with putting together a DVD.

    Thanks for the information.

    I don't even know how much I really wanted this, but DVD Angle is one of the web sites I use for information, so I oredered it to support the site. And for 9.95 (shipping included), you can't really go wrong.

    I ordered mine a few days ago too. I'm surprised this took such a long time to get mentioned here. Paul Russell's really put a lot of work into this, so I'm sure it will be a great product.

    I'm more interested in the technical aspects of how a DVD is produced. After seeing so many fluff pieces on DVD's about how so and so's acting was a certain way, seeing how the menu's and how a DVD is actually pressed should be cool.

    Update:
    The Interactive Tour is online so you can preview the menus of the disc.
    Also, the Rhino Home Video segment was cut. In its place, THX has included their Optimizer and 2 trailers: Broadway and Cavalcade.

    any DVD-loving HTF member ought to be buying this disc. All the content on this is well worth the $10 price.

    It is a great deal for $10 shipped. For anyone interested in how DVDs are put together, it's an easy purchase decision.
    I like traffic lights.

    I'm surprised they didn't buy advertising here on HTF--they'd probably make 1000 more sales!

    This is just about the easiest impulse DVD buying decision I've ever had to make.
