is becoming more significant and prominent in today’s
technology and entertainment industries. Whether it be
software applications or Video, DVD is an excellent
distribution vehicle for large amounts of data.
At Saunders, we can
help with all aspects of your project from Authoring (Menu
Creation, Encoding, Filming, Closed Caption, Subtitles) to
Production. There are two accepted methods for DVD
distribution; DVD -/+ R duplication and DVD Replication.
Again from 1 to 1,000,000 we are here to help.
For quick turnaround
production (same day, next day, or a couple days) or smaller
DVD-R duplication is a great solution. The
standard size for DVD-R duplication is 4.7GB. Using the best
equipment and best media (very important with DVDs), we can
produce high quality copies with a professional look. All
DVDs are duplicated and FULLY verified. The surface artwork
can be printed directly on the disc using thermal transfer
print (one color) or a die-sub (four color process) print
technology. In addition, we offer color laser / color digital
print adhesive labels.
For high quantity
is the most cost effective method
and most often used method for commercially purchased DVD
product. The minimum quantity is 1000 units. From your
master DVDs or DLTs, a stamper is created and then, 10 test
replicates made (and sent to you for approval if requested).
After approval (or waiver) of the test replicates, the DVDs
are molded using the stamper and injection molding process.
The artwork is then printed directly on the surface of the DVD
using either the screenprint method (up to six colors) or
offset print method (four color process). Turnaround for the
process is approximately 14 days (not including time for test
replicates, if needed). The standard size DVD is a DVD-5 and
holds 4.7GB. We can also produce DVD-9, DVD-10, and DVD-18.
We will require a completed replication rights form (RRF) and
DVD Source Master Form prior to beginning replication.
