Product Description

Get The Most Out Of Your HDTV. . . Get Back To BASICS

Created by home theater industry legend Joe Kane, HD Basics is the definitive High Definition home theater calibration tool. It promises to improve your picture and give you an understanding of the concepts that are vital to getting the most out of your HDTV.

If you are like most people, your HDTV is among the most used and least understood devices in your home. Buying an HDTV is a major purchase -- but it does not mean that you will enjoy the crisp and true images intended by HD content producers. Getting the most out of your HDTV set requires some adjustments.

HD Basics will teach you both how to make these adjustments and why they are necessary -- all while taking advantage of the interactivity provided by the Blu-ray format.

Everything is organized in a refreshingly clear way that allows you to access what you need, when you need it:

Where Would You Like To Start?
HD Basics begins with this simple question.
The straightforward menu will take you directly where you want to go.

HD In Detail
A 90 minute, all-inclusive tutorial will provide an overview of how your HDTV system works.
It will help you understand why the adjustments you need to make are necessary.

Setting Up My HDTV
A short and simple guide to improving the look of your picture.
It will take you about 25 minutes of your time to complete.

Just The Test Patterns
Go directly to any test pattern in the program.
