We've been providing quality Disc replication & packaging since 2005 and help independent video publisher and commercial disc users at every step of the process - from Disc authoring to digital file conversion for use on the web - we take away the unknowns and give you results!
Our special packaging division provides hand-assembly and collation of multi-disc sets and Limited Edition releases. Need help creating the perfect multi-pack configuration or custom media package? Our graphics team assists in creative design and sourcing vendors for creative packaging ideas.
We also provide commercial bulk Disc replication for advertising and marketing use, as well as direct mailing, and direct-to-consumer media fulfillment.
For DVD replication orders, the minimum order quantity is 500.
Replication is often referred to as "pressed" discs. The discs are created through an injection molding process where the data is actually part of the physical discs. Duplication is often referred to as "burned" discs. The data is burnt to the surface of the recordable disc.
The difference is the amount of information that the disc can hold. Generally speaking, a DVD-5 is a single layer disc and can hold 4.7GB of data or about 2 1/2 hours of video. A DVD-9, which is a dual-layer disc and can hold about twice that much, 8.5GB of data or 4 1/2 hours of video.
Our preference for master is a physical DVD fully authored for DVD. We also accept a digital master formated as a DDP Image file. DDP file is a Data file and is not a viewable format. Please contact one of our project specialists at email@example.com for a secure link to upload.
CSS (Content Scrambling System) is a DVD copy protection technology employed on almost all commercially produced DVD-Video discs. It is used on DVDs to encrypt the data so that only licensed DVD players can decode it then play the DVD content smoothly. Applying CSS encryption to your video program in authoring is usually free.
We do not put CSS copy protection on your master. CSS is applied at the time the authored DVD is output from the authoring software. Your master must be formatted with "CSS Flags on". When we receive your DVD master with Flags On, for a small additional fee, we supply and apply a CSS encryption key code that will allow the CSS copy protection already on the disc to pass to the replicated discs.
We will check to ensure your master is created to Red-Book (audio CD) or Yellow-Book (CD-ROM) guidelines. We will not review for appropriate sequencing, EQ levels, track spacing or ambient noise. It's important to 100% review your content - what you provide will be exactly what your receive in your final product.
If the DVD is authored for ALL REGIONS, than yes. If not, the discs will only play in the Regions that have been assigned to the disc .
NTSC is the standard broadcast format for the United States. PAL is the standard broadcast format in Europe, Australia, and parts of Asia. There is no difference in how the discs are manufactured.
Standard Definition Video or SD Video is transmitted at 720p lines of resolution. SD video is not considered High Definition.
