FAQ

What is the difference between high camera and multi-camera?

On a high camera version of a show, footage from a single camera is used. A continuous wide shot is used to show the show from an overhead angle. No closeups are included in this version. On a multi-camera version, footage from multiple cameras is combined into one version of the show. This will include wide shots, closeups on soloists, and closeups on sections of the show. Muti-camera will look the most like broadcast TV, and many parents prefer this version. High camera usually appeals to directors, and parents that prefer to see the drill in its entirety. 

What is the difference between a DVD and a Blu-Ray HD disc?

All of our video is recorded using the same cameras and audio equipment. Our cameras are broadcast quality, and we use full stereo sound. That being said, the discs themselves will look quite different depending on your home viewing options. 

A Blu-Ray HD disc is a high definition recording, They require a Blu-Ray player to be played. The video and audio on these discs is of much higher quality than a standard definition DVD. 

A DVD is a standard definition recording. They will play in any DVD player and on any television. On a high definition television, the picture may appear "fuzzy", the way any standard definition DVD will look on a high definition television. The larger and newer your television, the more pronounced this will be.

Is the price displayed the final price, or are there additional charges for tax, shipping, etc.?
