Encoding and Authoring ExplainedEncoding and Authoring Explained

If you're not familiar with the Authoring process for DVD, it's best to break it into two steps that must take place before the project can be manufactured. Here is a brief explanation:

Encoding - The encoding process actually performs two very important functions. The first of which is to make sure your edited video content is going to physically fit on a DVD, and the second is to make sure your video content is in a format that can be read by standard consumer DVD players - be that on a computer or on a DVD player that's hooked up to your television set.

Authoring - After the video content has been encoded we will Author it. Through the use of sophisticated Authoring software programs we can add a variety of interactive features to your project which may include menus, chapter points, subtitles, closed captioning, transitions, and more. The number and complexity of features to be added does have a direct impact on the cost of the job, so this is something that is discussed with clients at the quoting stage of the project. Additionally, the Authoring software also ensures that a DVD compliant format is produced that will work with standard DVD players.

Blu-ray Encoding and Authoring

Blu-ray Encoding and Authoring - As with standard definition video, after your high definition video is shot and edited it will need to be formatted properly for playback on Blu-ray DVD players, so proper encoding and authoring is a must.

Output options include: BD25 (single layer); BD50 (dual layer); Auto-play or interactive functionality.  [ GET A QUOTATION ]
