CD-ROM Production

We offer a two-tier CD-ROM production service - 'Basic' and 'Authored'.

THE BASIC CD-ROM service involves capturing video material to our computer, encoding it to the desired format (eg MPEG1, QuickTime etc.) and mastering it to CD-ROM.

Costs are VAT EXCLUSIVE and calculated as a sum of these three stages of production.

Costs for capturing video from your source tape:
e.g. from VHS, S-VHS, Video8, Hi8, Digital8, DV, DVCAM

01 - 18 minutes
£20
18 - 36 minutes
£24
36 - 54 minutes
£36
54 - 72 minutes
£48
72 - 90 minutes

Costs for  encoding:

£2 per minute


Costs for mastering to CD-ROM:

(Note: £5 supplement for each additional encoded file)

01 - 15 minutes
£8
15 - 30 minutes

30 - 45 minutes
£12
45 - 60 minutes
£14
60 - 75 minutes
£16
75 - 90 minutes
£18


Costs for additional copies of the CD-ROM:

£6.00 for first copy* then  £2.00 per copy*

*Optional additional charges are 45p for text/graphics on white background printed direct onto disc face, 10p for polypropylene slip case, 20p for jewel case and 45p for insert cover/tray liner.

The above charges are subject to an overall minimum charge of  £14.00.


THE AUTHORED CD-ROM service employs Illuminatus Opus authoring software enabling interactive CD-ROM design to the client's specification providing anything from a simple customised screen with just a few menu options to sophisticated menu navigation. As this service is so wide-ranging it is not possible to quote a standard cost. However the cheapest authored option (eg a 15 minute movie requiring a single customised menu screen and 'play' button) would typically cost around £80.00 plus VAT to produce onto a single CD-ROM. Additional copies would cost the same as for the Basic Service quoted above.

All charges are exclusive of VAT and any postage/delivery charges
