Linear Bearing Rail

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.

I then went on to discuss duplication quantities with Harry and we decided upon an initial 300 copies of our main title and he supplied me with a quote. Just to satisfy company requirements, I also asked another 2 companies whose representatives had called me back for quotes for 300 Blu-ray DVDs as well. As it turned out there wasn't much in the three prices, so I stuck with Harry as we had struck up a business relationship at this point.

On the Blu-ray DVD packaging side of things, I was offered a choice of standard Blu-ray cases - a translucent blue plastic case which is otherwise the same as a standard DVD case, or conventional packaging types such as card wallets and jewel cases. We wanted to create a great first impression with this new product so we took the Blu-ray DVD case option as this enabled us to include a digitally printed wrap-around cover which slides into a clear plastic sleeve around the outside of the case and also an 8 page instruction booklet that fits inside the case and is held in place by clips that are moulded into the case body.

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 excellent 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.

Business Intelligence or BI refers to the use of applications, processes, skills and technologies to make sound business decisions that affect the outcome of the business' operations. Every business entity, big or small, can benefit from proper use of BI; merely having access to Business Intelligence can not provide for a company's growth, it has to be utilized in the proper manner.
