We provide Digital and Analog video editing supporting both Standard Definition and High Definition video. Including creating and adding closed-captioning and sub-titles.
And our digital authoring and encoding suites can turn any production into a world-class DVD or Blue-Ray Disc! With our Sonic Scenarist BD authoring system we'll produce an excellent quality final master for disc replication or transcode files for web based projects like YouTube or Social Media Uploads. From menu design and creation to MPEG2 Encoding & expert compression, we do projects remotely from all over the US. Special package rates including authoring, disc replication and digital file conversion.
There are a few big steps involved in replicating Blu-Ray Discs. We'll arrange for AACS certification and provide preview BD discs for review prior to replication. Standard Blu-ray cases and multi-disc cases for a series or complete season. Custom packaging options available.
New Format! 4k UHD Blu-ray with High Dynamic Range (HDR) Ask about 4K UHD Blu-ray discs!
High Definition Video or HD Video is a video format with a resolution of 1920x1080 or 1080 lines of horizontal resolution.
For Blu-Ray 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.
As with DVD, this depends on the decisions on the usage of video bandwidth, the number of audio tracks and other criteria made by the author of the disc. And the choice codec used also influences playback time. On average, a single-layer disc can hold a High Definition feature of 135 minutes using MPEG-2, with additional room for 2 hours of bonus material in standard definition quality. A double-layer disc even extends these numbers up to 3 hours in HD quality and 9 hours of SD bonus material.
The difference is the amount of information that the disc can hold. A BD-25 is a single layer disc and can hold 25 gigs of High Definition Video. A BD-50 is a dual layer disc and can hold 50 Gigs of High Definition Video.
Blu-Ray masters are submitted on Hard Drive or Thumbdrive. File must be BDCMF or Sony CMF. Please contact one of our project specialists at email@example.com for a secure link to upload.
AACS or Advanced Access Content System, is an Anti-Piracy standard for content distribution and digital rights management. All Blu-Ray Disc replication jobs must have an ASCC certificate before replication can begin. We take care of this process for you when you submit your order. There are upfront fee's involved that you can discuss with your project manager. The process was developed by a consortium that includes Disney, Intel, Microsoft, Panasonic, Warner Bros., IBM, Toshiba and Sony.
