Review

Until now, do-it-yourself home theater enthusiasts only had two viable options when calibrating their HD-equipped systems: Digital Video Essentials HD Basics and Spears & Munsil High-Definition Benchmark, both of which suffer from a number of shortcomings and limitations (particularly for those trying to fine-tune an LCD, Plasma or LED display). Enter Disney, a somewhat surprising (and welcome) new player on the calibration stage. WOW: World of Wonder not only sets the bar for calibration suites available in high definition, it provides an as-yet-unrivaled home-video education on the nuances of properly calibrated audio and video gear, offers an extensive collection of smartly conceived tests and tools, and delivers it all via a helpful, user-friendly experience designed with a variety of users in mind. --Blu-ray Forum

All home theaters should have a disc like this. WOW is a tutorial disc that helps you to set up your HD system to its maximum potential. It helps you calibrate the sound and the picture, and does so with easy step-by-step guides. --Best Blu-ray Movies, Yahoo News

Kudos to Disney, Using a combination of the beginner and advanced calibration tools, I dialed in the Samsung TV to some accurate, eye-popping levels, Disney's WOW disc is great for installers and home theater enthusiasts. The disc produced some stunning results. --Robert Archer, CE Pro

Product Description

The Disney WOW World of Wonder Disc is a definitive "how to" guide for in-home High Definition (HD) optimization of home entertainment systems featuring the help of classic Disney character GOOFY and including HD demonstration clips from popular Disney titles including Toy Story, Up, Bolt and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. The easy to follow on-screen guide is designed to help consumers get the best quality experience from their home theater systems by providing everyone from beginners and enthusiasts to experts and custom installers alike with valuable high quality calibration tools.

Recently purchased a 55" Samsung UN55C6800 LED TV and was looking for a calibration disc. I was about the purchase the DVE HD Basics Blu-Ray but saw a press release concerning this DVD, so I decided to wait until this one came out and give it a go.

I will preface this by saying I had already used calibrated settings from CNET as well as users on the AVS forums to tweak my TV already. Before using the WoW Blu-Ray I would say I was about 95% satisfied with the picture my TV delivered using the settings I found online. The main reason I bought the blu-ray is I was just interested in seeing all the (albeit non-professional) test patterns used to calibrate a TV and so forth. I went in to this purchase not expecting any vast improvements in Picture Quality over my already somewhat tweaked settings. I know this disc is no substitute for a ISF professional calibration and was not expecting such results.

First, for people who havent purchased, head over to Disney's website and search for this blu-ray. On its Disney page, you'll find at the bottom a link to download the "WoW Technical Manual." This is basically an instruction booklet on how to use the blu-ray, and I found it to be a nice read before I actually received the blu-ray itself. It goes over a lot of the test patterns and how they work.

Here are the contents of the blu-ray:

5.0 out of 5 stars Next best thing to a professional calibration. December 11, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'm an ISF-certified HDTV calibrator and can highly recommend this disc to anyone with an HDTV who wants to get their display adjusted for better images but doesn't want to invest in having a professional calibration done. I've got several other DIY "calibration" DVDs and this one is by far the easiest to use (particularly for first-timers) and does a better than average job of fine-tuning your HDTV. It's the best investment you can possibly make in optimizing the performance of your new DLP, LCD, LED/LCD or plasma HDTV and you'll be rewarded with much better images than your display exhibited out of the box. And, while it won't allow you to properly adjust the color management system or fine-tune the grayscale performance that professional calibrators are able to do (with a $10,000+ plus investment in equipment and training!), it will get you much closer to industry standards and eliminate some of the more common adjustment problems such as the "torch mode" that most HDTV sets exhibit out of the box. Highly recommended and definitely well worth the small investment of time and money. You'll also be better informed about what it takes to make great pictures (and convincing surround sound) and your home entertainment quotient is bound to increase significantly. Try it, you'll definitely like it. Who knows? You might even be so impressed with how much your HDTV performance has increased that you'll go to the Imaging Science Foundation website (www dot imagingscience dot com) and contact a professional calibrator to take you the rest of the way to the maximum performance your new HDTV is capable of with a professional ISF calibration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great calibration Blu-Ray for beginners! November 13, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you've recently purchased or own an LCD, LED, Plasma, or DLP television, buy this Blu-Ray. Disney's calibration disc is very user friendly and easy to use. As the previous reviewer did, my TV was already calibrated from settings I found on CNET and AVSForum. I was interested to see how my settings compared to the settings changed using this Blu-Ray. My already tweaked settings were pretty close to the settings after calibrating my TV from the blu-ray. I just had to tweak a few things. Regardless, I still give this disc 5 stars. The directions are very easy to follow, plus the blu-ray comes with an instruction booklet. I recommend reading the instruction booklet before using the blu-ray to calibrate your television.

The blu-ray is very easy to navigate. If you need to return to a previous step, it's very easy to do so. After you calibrate your television, there are clips from several Disney movies such as Bolt and Pirates of the Caribbean to view your settings in action. The second disc on the blu-ray called Visions: Inspired By Nature is a stunning HD demo reel. There are scenes of waterfalls, an ocean sunset, flower fields, desert vistas, mountain vistas, a fireplace scene, plus more. You can play each individual scene or run a loop. The second disc is approximately 64 minutes long. The second disc is something you can play in the background if you are having guests over or play it while reading a book or just relaxing.

Overall, I highly recommend this to anyone who owns a high def television who hasn't tweaked their settings. You will learn which each setting on your television does and it learn about surround sound. Like the previous reviewer stated, If you have already calibrated your TV from settings you found online, this disc probably won't help you every much.

Disney WOW - which is the latest version?
The latest Blu-Ray version is the 2012 version with 1 disk. I'm guessing the same content sans the extra disk with stuff no one watched (non-calibration disk with scenery to show off the TV).

I'm having trouble with the contrast setup
This is a long time after your post, but did you figure it out? Try turning the backlight to 3 to start out with (out o 10) then turn contrast all the way down. Start turning it up until you see just the first bar on the right set of bars. Does that help?

How would this work with a 4K UHD television?
I cannot say with 100% certainty, but I know many people use 480p calibration DVD's to calibrate their 1080p sets, so this is the same idea using this 1080p calibration disc on a 4K set. In a perfect world you would want a 4K disc, but I imagine this would work out just fine.
