Disney's WOW is a fantastic disc that should be the go-to choice for all beginners looking to learn about their TV, and how to set it up. --Cnet.com
It s usually money in the bank when Disney does something, and that's exactly the case with the WOW calibration disc. Disney released this calibration disc to help installers and consumers calibrate their TVs for video industry specifications. The Blu-ray disc comes with tests that Disney developed to calibrate contrast and black levels, color and saturation (hue), sharpness and aspect ratio, all of this in levels ranging from beginner to advanced. The package comes with a manual to help guide users through the pattern, and it offers a bundle of Disney movie clips that can be played individually or looped. --CE Pro Magazine: Editor's Picks Top Product
Introduced at the CEDIA show in September, the WOW discs are by far the most extensively comprehensive calibration discs yet offered, in terms of their ability to effectively coach consumers through the process of understanding various video and audio adjustments, as well as providing a wealth of pristine source material that could only come from a media giant such as Disney. Contrast that with the numerous HD clips on the Blu-ray WOW disc, especially those on the Visions: Inspired By Nature companion disc, and it's clear that the Disney effort is by far the most comprehensive calibration disc effort to date. --AVS Forum www.avguide.com

Lo segundo: el 2º CD no vale para nada. Para nada en serio. Solo lleva imágenes y ya está.
Lo tercero: Encima tardó un mes en llegar...
En resumen: Lo he utilizado. Hay web gratuitas legales que descargas videos mejores que los que lleva. Me arrepiento un montón.

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:
The discover section basically gives you an overview of what HDTV is, how a picture is composed, etc.
*Brightness *Aspect Ratio *Contrast *Color *Sharpness
VIEWING ANGLE DIAGNOSTIC Find the best seat in the house
*Speaker ID *Polarity Test *Noise Floor *Buzz & Rattle Test
ADVANCED VIDEO CALIBRATION TOOLS

DISPLAY EVALUATION TOOLS *Purity *Scaling Test *Advanced Scaling 1 & 2 *Sharpness/Focus *Hyperbolic Zone Plate *White-Black Clipping *Viewing Angle Test *Gamma Response *Grayscale *Compound Test Chart
AUDIO TOOLS *Speaker ID *Polarity Test *Noise Floor *Buzz & Rattle Test *A/V Sync *Speaker Level Adjustment *Subwoofer Level Adjustment
PROFESSIONAL TOOLS HD SHOOTOUT Standard DVD vs. HD Blu-ray (BD only)

So....how did it work for me?
First, I love the included manual. Very well written and easy to use. Also, this blu-ray comes with a blue filter gel used to calibrate your colors. (I believe the DVE Blu-Ray also comes with color gels).
The actual DVD menus are wonderful too. Each test pattern has three sections: Overview (description of whay the particular TV setting is important), Instructions (shows the test pattern and clearly talks about how to use it), and finally just the test pattern itself, allowing you to tweak and take as long as you want.
Depending on how familiar you already are with your TV and if you wanted to watch the "Discover" portion of the disc, you can expect to spend anywhere from 1 hour to a few hours with the disc. There is a second included disc called Visions that has a bunch of nature scenery/etc to show off your TV. I did not care for the second disc, but i could see how someone could enjoy it.
At the end of the day, after running through all the tests (some multiple times because other tests later on may change your initial settings), I only changed two settings on my current set-up, and they were very small changes at that. I was disappointed that my settings didnt change too much, but like i said in the beginning I was already very happy with my TV's picture using settings I found online.
For what it is (an average-joe TV calibration blu-ray), this product is wonderful. I highly recommend it for people purchasing their first HDTV as it thoroughly discusses everything a person new to the technology would need to know. If you are the type of person who buys a new TV and starts watching it day 1 on the default settings, this dvd may help a LOT. However, for those who already play around with settings, consumer calibration dvds such as this one will probably not help all that much - especially since we can get decent settings online already from professional review sites or forums.
However, since I am rating the product, it undoubtedly deserves 5 stars. Easy to navigate, well produced, professional, etc. Just understand that if you've already tweaked your TV settings using information you've gathered online, this dvd may not bring that much of a change to your picture settings!
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.
The reality is that it took about a solid 45 minutes. But I'm picky. The interface was pretty easy to use. There were times that the directions were not the easiest to follow, but that was when the TV was calibrated close enough that they didn't make sense right away. An adjustment way out of band, showed more of what they were talking about, and the directions then made way more sense.
While most people will tell you to perform the calibration in your most used viewing hours, what I found to work best was to calibrate at dusk. There was still some good daylight in the house, but it wasn't really bright. This gave me the best all around calibration, and the TV looks great at any time.
I especially liked that for each change there was a description, instructions and the tool. This made things clearer and helped me decide if I could skip that step, which I did with some of them.
After calibrating my TV with the disc, I then took a look at some scenes on the disc with my new settings. I was especially happy with the animated ones as they were amazing! Great color, details and overall picture quality with a few adjustments being made while using the tools on this disc.
I have gone back and attempted some of the Advanced settings, but really didn't need too many of them after the basic calibration, which was nice as they are more labor intensive in terms of time and attention to detail. They would however, tell you if your TV was experiencing major issues and needed repair - which is good to know.
There are calibration tools specific to different kinds of displays (LCD, DLP, etc...) which was unexpected, but gave more value to the disc in my opinion. I plan on using this disc to calibrate my plasma and perhaps my desktop's LED monitor as well.
While some may balk at the cost of this disc (I got it for fifteen shipped...), I think it's a good way to get the most out of your high definition display. I use my TV in a lot of different ways (PC monitor, streaming media, and over air broadcast TV - I wrote Simple Guide to Over-the-Air Free TV) so it's important to me that it look the best it can for multiple uses - thus the desire for calibration.
This is a great fine tuning tool, but admittedly it isn't for everyone. However, those looking for a calibration disc will find this one very useful.
NOTE: If the light in the room that you're viewing your TV changes from when you calibrated the TV, you may need to re-calibrate to get optimum viewing yet again. This may also be the case if the source of your viewing changes. Going from cable TV to streaming from Netflix for example.
