(Packaging, Authoring, Menus, Editing & Looped Modes):

To personalise the menu, you can supply us with your own images and text. The menu can even include background music and motion attributes.

Authoring - Creatively done to add value
We offer a professional and creative authoring service. Before we can create your master disc, your video will need encoding to a variety of formats including MPEG2 for DVD. We use production quality DVD authoring software which translates into a visually impressively end product.

Whatever your original format is, we can encode from any broadcast or domestic tape format, or even from an AVI file. Alternatively, we can also extract and use files from an existing DVD or VCD / SVCD.

Personalised Printed DVD Covers
Give us the artwork and text - we'll print your covers too.

CD & DVD Packaging
We offer a full range of packaging options including slip cases, jewel cases and DVD cases. Alternatively, you may prefer to supply your own.

Your CDs or DVDs can come complete with or without text or images.

Loop Mode
If required, the disc can be configured so that it continually replays or 'loops'. This is ideal for shows where it sits playing continuously in the background.

Editing Service
Should, you require editing, i.e parts within films that need to be removed, re-ordered, restored, or be visually/audibly enhanced with titles etc, we can also assist you - simply call us to discuss your needs and we'll try to address them in the most cost effective way possible.

What is the resulting quality like?
Apart from obvious quality that will result out our careful work, we also use some of the best quality materials such as CDs/DVDs since delivering a quality, fault free product is as important to us as it is to you.
