LOS ANGELES (5.1 Entertainment Group/ Silverline Records) - Silverline Records, a division of the 5.1 Entertainment Group, is set to release 50 DualDisc titles beginning on November 2nd, 2004.
In an effort to bring expanded value to music fans, Silverline Records is participating with all of the major record labels in the launch of DualDisc, a two-sided disc made up of a CD on one side and a DVD on the other.
In addition to the album on the CD side, the DVD side provides the full album in DVD-Audio 5.1 surround sound, and also includes a wide range of special features such as music videos, interviews, photo galleries, web links, concert footage and lyrics.
DualDisc plays on existing CD and DVD hardware devices such as car stereos, PCs, DVD players, game consoles and CD players, eliminating the need to purchase new hardware. In addition, it brings value back to the physical music product by offering music fans the opportunity to make a greater connection with their favorite artist.
"DualDisc is an exciting product for independent labels. It provides a window into new and up and coming artists for whom getting close to their fans is a critical success factor.
DualDisc also provides a means to invigorate classic titles with fresh and compelling content," said John Trickett, Chairman and CEO, 5.1 Entertainment Group/Silverline Records.
