DVD Authoring

We can provide full post production facilities for DVD authoring & video editing using the latest Adobe CS video production suite.

So what is authoring? Authoring is the last stage in the process of getting the finished film from your final edit to a playable DVD. The final product requirement might range from a simple automatic play and loop video (ideal for an exhibition presentation for example), right through to a feature length film, with a fully interactive set of menus - enabling the viewer to select options such as scenes, music tracks, languages, video streams or subtitling etc. etc.

Supplying your files for Authoring

For best results source data files should always be supplied rather than a video DVD copy. Data compression is involved in putting video onto DVD and it is always best if we can work from the original source files before that compression occurs to enable us to give you the best possible result. We can work from most common video file formats and should you need help at any stage, our engineers are available for advice on how to achieve the highest quality and compatibility for your DVD production master.

Video files can be supplied to us on hard drive, USB or DVD-ROM, or uploaded to us directly via our FTP server (log-in details available on request), Dropbox or any other Web file delivery service.

Supplying DVD Masters

If you are supplying your own masters, please supply a DLT (Digital Linear Tape) or a DVD-R. If CSS encryption is required, please supply DLT's and make sure that you have "enabled" the DLT to be encrypted at the authoring stage.
