DVD REMASTERING PROCESS

 

 


Our DVDs are digitally remastered during 16mm or 35mm film transfer or from our videotape archive. But please know that we don't simply dump the video signal onto a DVD-R media disc. We want to insure the highest possible video quality, therefore we use video enhancing technology that removes color bleeding, image ghosting, poor contrast, brightness, sharpness, saturation, etc.

 

Take a look at the before and after images to the right to see how we can improve the video image before we remaster onto DVD-R. Notice in the after picture how the horizontal color bleed has been corrected. It is especially noticeable in the red flower pedals. Also, the overall picture clarity and sharpness has been improved.

 

Why do we go through this extra effort? To ensure that the end product—your DVD purchase—will be the best possible. But please note that while in most cases the digitally remastered DVD quality is improved from our tape or disc master, you should not expect the same quality as you would from a current major Hollywood movie released on DVD.

To insure high quality, we remaster our archive onto Taiyo Yuden or MAM brand DVD-R media—the highest quality blank DVD-R media. It's the most expensive too!
But it lasts a lifetime.

 

We also use top quality "M-Lock" DVD movie cases to protect your DVDs. They're rugged, black plastic and will not break like flimsy CD jewel cases. The disc is "locked in place" and will not "float" and scratch during shipment or storage. Customers love 'em!

DVD Bonus Selections:  When you order one of our discs we want you to have a swell time hanging out with your pals in front of your TV set. To help make it fun we add special bonus selections on every DVD-R disc. We do our very best to make sure the bonus selections are similar to, or enhance the main program content.

 

DVD Video Quality and Recording Speed:  The best video quality can be obtained on a DVD-R disc when the material is recorded at a recording speed of two hours or less. So, while we could provide over two hours of material of a single disc, we never will because the video quality will degrade. We want the best quality for ourselves and because your disc will be an exact "clone" of our master, you'll get the same "best quality" we want for ourselves.

 

DVD Compatibility:  Our DVDs can be played on all NTSC DVD players that are DVD-R compatible. Our DVDs are encoded for ALL regions & zones.

 

Important:  Most international DVD players can play both the NTSC and PAL systems. Check your DVD player owner's manual to see if you have a multi-system DVD player before you order.

DVD stands for Digital Versatile Disc, DVD-R stands for DVD RecordableA DVD-R stores up to 2 hours of very good quality DVD-Video, including several audio tracks in formats like stereo, Dolby Digital or DTS and also advanced menu systems, subtitles and still pictures that can be played by many standalone DVD players and most computer DVD-ROMs. 

If you choose to lower the video quality it is possible to save more than two hours of video on a DVD-R using low bit rates and low resolution with video quality more like VHS.

Today there are three competing DVD Recording standards, DVD-R and DVD+R have pretty similar features and are compatible with many standalone DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs while DVD-RAM has less DVD Player and DVD-ROM compatibility but better recording features.

DVD-R is a non-rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 98% of all DVD players
