A DVD about DVDs?

Our good buddies at DVD Angle came up with a pretty cool idea. Seeing as how they're a site devoted to the DVD format, why not issue their very own DVD with a behind-the-scenes look at how they're made? DVD DISCOVERIES will be available for pre-order this September for a meager retail price of $9.95. Here are some more details on what you can expect from the disc:

To help bring DVD Discoveries to life, we have enlisted some of the most talented and recognizable names in the industry. All told, there will be more than 3 hours worth of exclusive featurettes covering all aspects of DVD-related production. This fully loaded DVD-9 will contain insightful segments, found nowhere else, from the actual people and companies that have propelled DVD to ever-greater heights.
