South Bend 9

Our first range of videos were either burnt onto conventional 4.7 GB capacity DVD discs or were shown to training delegates using a projector via a laptop. The requests we were receiving more recently were for hard copies of the video training material so we suddenly found ourselves needing a reliable supplier of DVD duplication services. As the training videos developed and became more detailed and thorough, the size of the video files started to become a real issue. The conventional DVDs just didn't have the capacity we needed and this was coupled with the fact that we were being requested for high definition video as in a lot of cases the video was intended for display during in-house training sessions in front of projector screens with a room loaded with trainees.

I was tasked with satisfying this requirement as I was working with the video production team and had some experience with video editing and with computer artwork software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. My 1st step was to search the internet for UK based companies who were currently offering a DVD duplication service to see if they could offer recommendations. As expected, there were numerous applicable companies with terrific websites and a bunch 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 get in touch with 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 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.

My experience with computer software meant that I could create the artwork for the Blu-ray DVD and the packaging, myself. Harry supplied me with artwork templates and I will stress at this point how important it was for me to discuss this with Harry as he was able to help me avoid mistakes that would be costly in terms of project timing, such as:

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 bunch of time to the project making it much more expensive.

Before signing this off we did some further research to establish what a 'B2 Fire Rating based on RACKET 4102' meant. Racket 4102 is the European Classification of building materials based on their flammability. The Classes range from A1 100 % non combustible to B3 Easily combustible. This is what we found:
