Starting today, Koch Releasing is offering bundled copies of its 'Ultimate DVD' home theater set-up disc with its releases of 'Chronos' and 'Nature's Journey' on Blu-ray and HD DVD.

Offering up a series of diagnostic tools designed to help consumers maximize their home theater's performance, 'Ultimate DVD' has already sold over 500,000 units, according to the distributor.

Priced at an MSRP $34.98, the two-disc bundle will retail for roughly five dollars more than the stand-alone next-gen editions of 'Chronos' and 'Nature's Journey.' That's a $15 savings off the cost of both discs if purchased separately.

In an email to High-Def Digest, Richard Casey, the producer of all three discs explained the rationale behind the new bundle:

"We are big believers in maximizing performance not just for our releases, but for the systems that play them back as well. Including the Ultimate DVD with our [high-def] releases will hopefully educate consumers on how to properly fine tune their system to achieve the best possible entertainment experience, not just with our titles but with all forms of entertainment media."

The 'Ultimate DVD' bundles are now available at DVD Empire (see links below).
