Professional Reviews

"...enthusiastically recommended for viewers as a quite relaxing, beautiful, and instructive compendium of remarkable and vivid photographs of an enduringly unique species of flower" --Midwest Book Review

Ambient Orchids: Ultimate Photo Gallery, features 380 high resolution photographs in a pictorial collection of 240 beautiful orchids. An impressive visual two hour production, Ambient Orchids offers viewers such features as an interactive zooming for all orchids, loop mode and custom play lists, orchids overview, optimized photos for widescreen TV standards, and nature sound effects in 5.1 Dolby Surround, music by Chopin, a viewing of each name for any orchid at any time with the click of the remote, and featuring more than 375 "desktop wallpapers".

A unique and prized addition to any gardening enthusiast's reference collection, Ambient Orchids is enthusiastically recommended for viewers as a quite relaxing, beautiful, and instructive compendium of remarkable and vivid photographs of an enduringly unique species of flower. Also very highly recommended from Vat19 Productions are three companion DVDs: Ambient Flowers; Ambient Calm; and Ambient Art.


"This DVD-ROM is recommended for orchid enthusiasts, botany students, or anyone seeking to create a relaxed atmosphere, and is suitable for any age." --Karen Straube, George Fox University, Educational Media Reviews Online

Ambient Orchids is a new entry in The Ambient Series, a set of DVDs which create different atmospheres from your television (i.e. Ambient Fire is another in the series). This interactive DVD-ROM contains a slideshow display of orchids with 380 photographs of 240 varieties, accompanied by Chopin's piano music. The viewer is able to select from six different playlists of flowers divided by genera, create a custom playlist, or watch all 380 pictures in random order. Preferences allow the display of Latin names to be turned on or off. Chopin's music is also optional, allowing just the sounds of nature as accompaniment. The remote control can be used to stop on a particular orchid, zoom in and out, and display its Latin name. Other features include a history of orchids and 375 wallpapers on the DVD-ROM.



The photographs in Ambient Orchids are high resolution and optimized for 16 x 9 screens as well as standard televisions. The DVD menu is easy to navigate, and the help section clearly explains how to take advantage of the many features. This DVD-ROM is recommended for orchid enthusiasts, botany students, or anyone seeking to create a relaxed atmosphere, and is suitable for any age.


"The music selections are all by Chopin, which somehow seems very appropriate for the orchid images - spectacular, virtuosic, but with plenty of obsessive frilly stuff here and there." --J. Sunier, Audiophile Audition

Let's get specific about flowers now: Here's just orchids - only orchids! 380 hi-res shots of 240 different orchids of every type in their natural habitat, to be exact. They are displayed without any captions, but if you just tap your remote control at any time you will see their names. There is interactive zooming in on all the orchids whenever you want it, plus a looping mode and custom playlists. An Orchids Overview provides details about the whole history of orchids and more. The music selections are all by Chopin, which somehow seems very appropriate for the orchid images - spectacular, virtuosic, but with plenty of obsessive frilly stuff here and there. The DVD-ROM bonus features over 375 different desktop wallpapers - that's an awful lot of orchid images!

Thank you for sending me my ukulele kit. It made me very happy. I watch the Vat19 videos all day until my mum tells me to stop. I like the funny ones. My dad also got the Trap-a-Crap ... it works.
