VE Associates has been working with more Independent Documentary style film makers to help distribute their films on high quality DVDs. When there is a screening, there’s a good opportunity to sell a retail ready DVD version of the film, and it’s important the quality represents the film in the highest of standards. That’s where VE comes in… we make sure the film is encoded properly in the correct display aspect ratio and with the correct audio stream; whether it be 2.0 or 5.1 surround sound. DVD is still the best way to distribute your film and ensure that the end user will be getting a disc that is the most compatible with computers, dvd players, game consoles, etc. Call VE to find out more about how we can help you get your documentary film professionally authored on to DVD! 1-877-474-7277!
As we become increasingly more aware of our own impact to the environment and how we can improve our CD and DVD replication processes and packaging materials to be more “green”, we have noticed a trend in this digital era, that more and more companies are distributing their yearly catalogs and manuals in the PDF format on a printed CD; rather than the previous method of printing and binding physical catalogs. Not only are they saving the paper, ink and binding materials in regards to the environment, they are saving money in shipping as a CD weighs much less than a 100 pg printed catalog. It just makes too much sense! Also, VE Associates, Inc. has the ability to create autolaunching welcome screens when the CD is inserted to a PC computer, to help navigate the user to the correct PDF if there are multiple files. The splash screen can also include a logo, a link to the company web site, video clips, photos, audio files, and anything else the end user might find helpful. If you’re still printing your yearly catalogs, give VE a call to discuss making the transition to CD!
DVD Replication is still the most effective way to distribute video to the masses. VE Associates is working with many new independent documentary film producers that wish to distribute their work on replicated DVDs they can trust; to help gain viewership and support of various causes in the most cost effective way possible. VE has been helping author/create and replicate solid playable replicated DVD versions of their previously aired documentaries ranging from Offroad events, Motorcycle clubs, and the treatment of Vietnam Vets after they returned home. VE understands the years of work and dedication it takes to put together a quality documentary. It’s this reason that more and more film makers are trusting VE Associates with their authoring, dvd replication, printing and packaging of their project because they know it will be done right with the highest level of customer service and support. If you know anyone that has made their own documentary, have them call VE to get the ball rolling on getting it replicated and seen on DVD!
The formatting stage of DVD authoring is the most important stage in guaranteeing a quality product. You want to make sure you are formatting correctly, using only industry standard software and media. This is the stage where you have control over track ordering, track skipping, user controls, layer-breaks, etc. For a DVD-9, dual layered media is accepted however formatting each layer to separate DLT tapes is still a more stable and reliable format over dual layered DVD-Rs. If you are in need of CSS, yet you do not have a DLT machine, call VE today and we will format your DVD Studio Pro project to DLT tapes for you. VE pride’s itself in being able to help and support our client’s needs in every aspect of creating a quality product.
As more and more industry standard cameras, software, editing suites, etc. make their way into the general consumer’s homes at affordable prices, we are seeing more and more independent films, independent documentaries that are interesting, fascinating and educational. Isn’t this great? We love seeing what different people really care about! We are seeing documentaries and films on a range of topics from offroading & street racing, to herbal remedies & the purified water industry, etc. But what do all of these films and documentaries have in common? - They all need to be made into a working and professionally authored DVD for replication and distribution. Our client’s recognize the importance of this step; having invested a lot of money into their projects, they do not want an end product that doesn’t deliver. Leave it to the professionals and let VE create, replicate, print, package and ship your next project and experience the difference in working with a company that truly is your one-stop-shop for all your DVD needs.
