DVD and CD production

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

THE BASIC DVD service consists of a simple transfer-to-DVD service whereby material from a variety of sources (eg VHS or Mini DV tape etc.) is copied directly to DVD. This produces a DVD with a standard menu consisting of one or more clips depending on the number of clips recorded onto the DVD. Each menu item can be individually titled once the material is recorded onto the DVD.

We charge £25 for the first video clip then £10 for each subsequent clip. So a DVD with four video clips on its menu would cost £25 plus £30 = £55. Further copies can then be supplied at normal duplication rates (see Duplication).


THE AUTHORED DVD service
employs Adobe Encore DVD authoring software enabling a DVD design to the client's specification providing anything from a simple customised screen with just a few menu options, to sophisticated menu navigation with all the features associated with professional TV or cinema productions. 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 £100.00 to produce onto a single DVD, though extra copies would only cost the same as for the Basic Service.

We also 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 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

*If your footage is not in a UK PAL format (e.g. the US standard called NTSC) then we can convert this to a UK PAL standard for you. See Standards Conversion.

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 to produce onto a single CD-ROM. Additional copies would cost the same as for the Basic Service quoted above.
