Manufacturing your DVDs and Blu-ray discs

The V in DVD stands for versatile, and the discs can indeed be used for a wide range of purposes. With data capacities of up to 9.4 gigabytes on, for example, a DVD-10, DVDs are equally suitable for audio, video and data of all kinds.

The Blu-ray disc gets its name from the blue laser beam used to read its data. This has a shorter wavelength and thus offers finer scanning than the red beam used for CDs and DVDs. Blu-ray technology allows data volumes of up to 50 GB, making Blu-ray the ideal medium for films in Full HD or concert recordings in high-resolution audio.

A format for every content

Digital versatile disc or Blu-ray? And which format would you prefer? There is more than one way to market high-quality media content − but which one is right for you? Maybe you already know the answer and can tell us exactly what you require. If so, we would be happy to help.

However, if that is not the case, we can offer you advice and support on all questions concerning disc formats, technical options and the optimal aesthetic and technical presentation of your content. We will always find the right medium and optimal format for your product.

Perfectly presentated DVDs and Blu-ray media

The value perception of your product is not just determined by the content, or even by the shimmering silver disc that is the high-tech data carrier. Often enough, it is a product’s external appearance that attracts the buyer’s attention, whets their appetite and ultimately causes them to make the purchase.

In order to ensure this aspect of your product benefits from an optimal design, we will support you through the entire decision-making process for product presentation − and make suitable suggestions for attractive packaging and design options that will convey the true value of your product. Or if you already know how you want the final product to look, we can transform your ideas and specifications into a custom product that precisely matches what you had in mind. In both cases, we have good ideas and the necessary resources to deliver your DVD and Blu-ray projects as attractive and perfectly presented media products.

DVDs and Blu-ray Discs in the highest quality

We will manufacture your DVDs and Blu-ray discs in reference quality. We can make this commitment because our manufacturing partner has industry-leading expertise in data carrier production and is in possession of some of the most modern machinery in Europe. All the optical disc formats that we supply are ‘Made in Germany’.

The quality of the DVDs and Blu-ray discs you order from us is borne out by their high data integrity. For example, they benefit from measurably low error values for block errors and jitter, as well as particularly high-quality mechanical processing. Both of these quality features offer tangible advantages such as error-free data replication, 100% compatibility with playback devices and a long data carrier life span. Probably just as important for the discerning buyer are the flawless optics and discs with a look and feel that convey their true value − which we also guarantee.

Surface finishes

The surface finishing of the discs, that is, the label printing and final coating of sealant, gives DVDs and Blu-ray discs an appealing look and feel. An artistically appropriate and well-executed finish makes a big difference, contributing significantly to the overall impression that this is a quality product.

You can choose between two high-quality label printing processes. For intricate or photorealistic motifs, we recommend classic offset printing. On the other hand, more graphic motifs will look particularly striking and impressive when screen-printed using special colours.

The surface finish protects the disc and gives the print shine and luminosity. For this final treatment, we offer various finishes from silk matt to high gloss, each with its own aesthetic appeal. And with the right motif, a partial coating can really catch the eye.

DVD and Blu-ray authoring

We will use the master you provide as the data source for the production of your DVDs or Blu-ray discs. It should be created as a disc image or a file set in the Disc Description Protocol format. If your data is not yet available in its final form, our specialist will be happy to take over the work that still needs to be done. The scope of such authoring can range from minor corrections to the specifications to more comprehensive work on the concept as a whole. In any case, our authoring will result in a format-compliant DVD or Blu-ray master that will serve as the production template for the subsequent glass mastering. As you will be aware, we use the glass master as the starting point for the actual production run.
