Marking one more milestone for the DVD-Audio format and another first for the band Dishwalla, The 5.1 Entertainment Group and immergent Records have created the first DVD-Audio Single. Dishwalla forged in-roads for the format earlier this year with the first Day & Date release of their album Opaline simultaneously on both DVD-Audio and Compact Disc formats.
Dishwalla’s “Somewhere in the Middle” DVD Single is available at no additional cost and is banded directly to the Compact Disc version of Opaline at stores nationwide. It includes Dishwalla’s music video for the single mixed in 5.1 surround sound, 3 different audio mixes, band member commentary and an Opaline DVD-Audio preview. The DVD Single plays in all DVD players and DVD ROM drives, as well as in X-Box and Play Station 2 game consoles.
“This promotional DVD-Audio Single is intended to provide extra value for the consumer that purchases a CD copy of Opaline, while also giving the same consumer a taste of the exciting DVD-Audio format,” said Jeff Dean, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for 5.1 Entertainment Group.
