If you plan on distributing your video on DVD, a production ready master must be authored. DVD authoring is the process of creating a DVD video Disc capable of playing in a DVD player and must conform to the specifications set by the industry. The complexity of these specifications makes it essential to hire a company like Play-It Productions to help manage this aspect of your project.
As part of the authoring process, your movie file will be encoded to separate audio and video streams as well as converted to standard definition if needed. Menus and Sub-menus will be designed and programmed along with adding chapter markers and any other aspects related to the functionality of the final disc. A reference disc will be tested for playability, quality and functionality before output to a production ready master.
We also offer closed captioning, subtitling, color correction, and editing services.
