Bill Hunt and Todd Doogan have been reporting on DVD at The Digital Bits website since the format first appeared in 1997. And over the years, theyve noticed that there are few places viewers can go to have the various aspects of DVD and home theatre explained, in simple language -- plain talk anyone can understand. So theyve written The Digital Bits Insiders Guide to DVD to fill this void. In it they:

* Take a comprehensive look at over 100 of the top DVDs of all time

* Explain DVD and all its features -- what it is and how it works

* Offer expert advice on how to put together a great home theatre at an affordable cost

* Explain the latest technology, such as DVD recorders and the new SACD and DVD-Audio high-resolution music formats

* Provide an eye-opening glimpse of the future of DVD -- which promises your favorite films in high-definition video


Theres plenty here for long-time, experienced Bits readers too! Bill and Todd have included a comprehensive review of over 100 discs, in a whole variety of genres, that everyone should have in their private movie collection -- they even tell you what makes each one so great. Youll also get a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at one of the biggest releases of 2003: Twentieth Century Foxs nine-disc Alien Quadrilogy! The authors provide a revealing insider’s view of the making of this elaborate, special-edition box set.

The inside scoop on DVDs -- for less than the cost of a single disc!
