Jebediah N.D.C. is a DVD release of this Australian band's single, N.D.C.
This disc contains footage of the band Jebediah performing five of their tracks live at the Channel V studio in Sydney. This is a DVD-Plus format disc with one side of the disc consisting of a standard DVD-Video program and the other containing two CD audio tracks and CD-ROM data. The CD-ROM side of the disc includes the CD-Audio tracks N.D.C. and Nothing Lasts Forever (Acoustic) as well as small MPEG-1 versions of the tracks included in the DVD-Video program.
The following live tracks are included on the DVD-Video side of the disc.
2. Nothing Lasts Forever
3. Fall Down
5. Baltic Ballet
The full frame transfer is presented at its original aspect ratio of 1.33:1.
The transfer is extremely sharp throughout but footage from a single camera placed behind the drummer is obviously softer. As the transfer is always brightly lit there is never any problem with shadow detail. No low-level noise was detected at any time during the transfer.
The colours displayed during the transfer are always vibrant and well saturated.
No MPEG artefacts were detected at any time during the transfer.
A number of aliasing artefacts were detected throughout the transfer. Some examples of these artefacts may be seen at 0:04, 1:24, 2:21, 3:31 and 4:17 and due to their frequency they are moderately distracting.
As this live performance was shot on video, no film artefacts are present during the transfer.
No subtitles are provided on this disc.
The lyrics are clear at all times during both tracks. No dropouts or problems with audio sync were detected at any time during the transfer.
The surround channels were used minimally to reproduce the front main channels at a lower volume and this did not create an enveloping soundfield.
The LFE channel was used effectively throughout the transfer.

The non-animated menu is presented at an aspect ratio of 1.33:1.

NOTE: To view non-R4 releases, your equipment needs to be multi-zone compatible and usually also NTSC compatible.
This disc does not appear to be currently available in Region 1.
Jebediah N.D.C. is an entertaining live performance by the band but the short running time and small number of CD-Audio tracks is disappointing.
The video transfer is of high quality and is only marred by a number of aliasing artefacts.
The LPCM soundtrack is of high quality but the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack is a little disappointing.
There are no real extras included on this disc but this could have been easily supplemented with a band biography or discography.
