STANDARD DVDs - TOP CHOICE !

 

 

Standard DVDs are produced on high quality industrial  DVD Recorders. The DVDs will usually play from start to finish and will have a basic menu, that can be accessed by the user at any point during playback , by using  their Remote Control and pressing the "DISK MENU" button.

 

These DVDs are similar to those that you would rent from your local Video store. They are designed to play on DVD players and most Computer DVD drives. They are not designed for editing, although it can be done, with the aid of specialist software and advanced computer knowledge.

 

So why use us to make your dvds?

 

* We tidy you videos ,so that family videos , where the camcorder was left on, filming the floor/wall are all chopped out (as long as nothing important was being said). 

* We always remove as much "white noise" as is possible (when one scene ends and your screen is fuzzy until the next screen appears )

 * We remove any obvious unwanted scenes from your recordings.

* We insert manual Chapter Marks onto the dvds we make. We do not use "lazy" automatic chapters.

 

Markers (called CHAPTER MARKS) are manually placed at various points throughout the recording, so that the user can "jump" quickly from one point of the recording, to another point. Other companies will usually add a Chapter automatically every 10 minutes. which means when the user presses the Chapter button on their Dvd Remote Control, the dvd will often jump to a point in the middle of a speech or mid action.

 By putting Chapters at specific point we control where the dvd jumps to when you press this button.

 So for example, in a wedding dvd, we will usually put chapters at the start of each of these following events....

1. Bride arriving at the church.

2. Bride walking down  the aisle with "here comes the bride" music.

3.Exchanging of rings and vows.

4. "I now pronounce you man and wife". 

5. Couple leaving the church.

 

A company using automatic chapters, will usually cause pressing the Chapter button  on the remote, to miss the start of these events. 

 

 

AUTHORED DVDs

 

Authored DVDs are produced on a computer. The main advantage is they allow you to handle multiple clips, a lot easier. When you insert an Authored DVD, you will immediately be presented with a Front Menu, that has been costumed designed. You will have the ability to play each video clip individually and for it to return to the Main menu upon completion, rather than them all playing consecutively.

These DVDS are very similar to those that you would rent from your local Video Store. They are designed to play on DVD players and Computer DVD drives. They are not designed for editing, although it can be done, with the aid of specialist software and advanced computer knowledge. 

Authored DVDs cost more than a standard DVD.

 

 

DATA DVDs

 

A DATA DVD is basically your video footage, saved as "computer editable data" and stored on a DVD !

The most commonly used format is called .MP4 and MPEG2.

The user simply takes the dvd that we supply and copies the file from the DVD, onto their computer, then they can then begin to edit it. This is very handy, if you want to edit your videos, but don't want to pay a video editor to do it. You should of course have some editing software, that you are familiar  with using. 

Our company can provide such editable DATA on DVDs to or from UK (PAL) or USA (NTSC) video formats. For example, you may have a camcorder tape in NTSC but you want to do some editing and save the finished work onto a PAL DVD. We will convert your NTSC camcorder tape, so you are provided with PAL editable data, stored on a DVD.

 

Data DVDs, provided by us will play back on a computer, with programs such as WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER and iMOVIE They will NOT play on a dedicated DVD player.
