EMI Music Catalog Marketing Group (Arlington, Va.) has teamed up with Henninger Vision, a provider of complete, end-to-end multimedia solutions, to release several DVD-Audio titles. Henninger Vision is working with EMI Music Distribution to offer classic recordings in advanced-resolution surround sound, remixed to optimize playback on high-end surround systems, as well as home theater systems. Titles released recently include popular and rare music videos, bios and photo galleries, including Al Green Greatest Hits, Dave Koz: The Dance and Eric Johnson: Ah Via Musicom. Henninger Vision is also working on titles by Queensryche, Crowded House and Richard Thompson, to be released this summer.

“We were very excited to be a part of this EMI project,” said Tom McCarthy, Henninger’s director of DVD services. “The DVD-Audio format is a terrific medium to work with. It allows us to include features such as photo galleries and bios that can be viewed at random without interruption during playback of advanced-resolution surround audio. Also included on some of the disc are music videos previously unavailable for purchase. All of these new features makes ‘listening’ to these releases a more active and pleasurable experience.”

“We are enthusiastic about this new music format,” said Tom Cartwright, VP catalog marketing for EMI Recorded Music. “The superior sound quality and added video enhancements create a premium listening experience that will help boost sales for our artists. The creative team at Henninger Vision was a valuable resource in establishing the video enhancements and putting these releases together.”

Each DVD-Audio release is re-mixed at Capitol Studios from the original multitrack master tape in Advanced-Resolution 96kHz/24-bit, PCM surround sound. To get the most out of the new format, audiences need a DVD-Audio player that can play back the advanced-resolution surround and stereo tracks. While listening to the high-resolution audio, the listener can browse the artist bio’s, photo gallery and track credits without playback interruption. Also included on the disc are 5.1-surround mixes in DTS and Dolby Digital formats, so the 31 million owners of DVD-Video players can also enjoy the surround remixes.
