3 4 Boring Bar

I work for a company that specialises in producing printed training material. It's not just any old training material though; we work mainly with the Marine/Maritime industries all over the world such as Oil and Gas Extraction, Ship Repair, Marine and Deep Sea Salvage amongst others. We have recently increased our range of services to include the production of high quality training videos aimed at the larger scale companies who may be training several hundred personnel at any one time. The first batch of videos that we produced, were extremely well received and we have had enquiries from many sources about producing more comprehensive and detailed videos.

I was tasked with satisfying this requirement as I was working with the video production team and had some experience with video editing and also with computer artwork software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. My first step was to search the internet for UK based companies who were currently offering a DVD duplication service to see if they could offer advice. As expected, there were numerous applicable companies with great websites and a lot of positive customer feedback. My usual approach with these things is to send out an enquiry email and see who gets back to me first so that I can sound them out and make a judgement call on you will be easiest to deal with. About ten minutes after making the enquiry, I had a call from a gentleman named Harry who was a project manager with one of the larger UK based CD and DVD duplication companies. Harry was very knowledgeable and courteous and seemed to be someone who I could happily deal with.

I discussed the details of the project and its requirements with Harry and he advised me to go for Blu-ray DVD duplication. A Blu-ray DVD can hold up to 25GB of video data on a single layer disc and 50GB on a single dual layer disc and so we could easily fit our high definition video files onto a single disc for playback via a Blu-ray DVD player or PC/laptop with a Blu-ray compatible drive. The process for producing an interactive menu is the same as for a standard DVD and so we would be able to work with Harry on that side of the project as well. Blu-ray DVDs are over twice the cost of standard DVDs and duplication costs also tend to be higher due to the larger files and consequential greater length of time required for duplication but we had a rapidly filling order book with the type of client who wouldn't quibble over the price, so no problem there.

With the artwork completed, submitted and approved, the DVDs are printed. For this job we went for litho printing as the image was photographic. Once the discs are printed they can then be burnt with the video files in the duplication suite. The Blu-ray DVD duplication suite contains many duplication towers that are linked together "daisy chain" style. Each of the towers contains between 11 and 40 optical drives similar to the Blu-ray writing drives that are available for desktop PCs. The drives are all controlled by a central master unit which is loaded with the video data to be burnt to all other discs. Loading and unloading of the discs is performed automatically by robotic arms which do the job quickly and efficiently and remove the element of potential human error. It would be an incredibly tedious job to do manually and would add a lot of time to the project making it much more expensive.

I was lucky to have found a reliable and knowledgeable supplier but I did do a fair amount of research before making a decision which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone else who needs a Blu-ray DVD duplication supplier. The end product was of very high quality and all of our clients were suitably impressed and have since been in touch to enquire about the next product. I hope this article will be of use to others looking for this service and that the potential pitfalls and time wasters above can be avoided for a streamlined and efficient project.

OK and I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. This is true until there's a claim or loss and then the surety is entitled to sue the contractor for recovery. After all, they are a "for-profit" company that must answer to its stockholders. They are not in business to lose money.
