is DVD Authoring?
"Authoring" is the process of
creating a DVD master for replication. This involves
collating all the assets - video, audio, still images,
subtitles etc - and linking them together so that people
can access them effectively when watching the DVD. Often
we also offer design services as part of this process,
creating attractive, compelling and effective menus
for the DVD. We work out the bit-budget - ensuring that
everything fits onto the disc at the best possible quality.
Finally we produce check-discs and a DLT master tape
to send to the plant.
