What is DVD Authoring?

DVD authoring is a process where DVD information is placed on a disc that is then capable of playing on a DVD player. DVD authoring takes specific programming to complete, because there are certain specifications that are required by the DVD forum group that are extremely complex. DVD authoring is generally used only for DVD authoring of video DVDs and not the audio DVDs.

Our company offers many DVD authoring packages to suit all of your video needs. There is no need to buy expensive programs or using a few different companies to complete your DVD. We make DVD authoring a quick and simple process for you, as we also offer encoding or menu design as well.

What we do is take your video or film and add any other content you wish, and then blend it all together into a professional quality DVD. Our options make each project fully customizable so that no matter what your needs we are able to meet them. We also offer replication services, so if you have any DVD that you want to have copies of, simply contact us for more information. Our packages offers you an array of different designs or options so that your DVD will be exactly as you foresee and specify it to be. We offer closed captions, motion menus, menu design, director’s commentary as well as converting your films to MPEG-4 so that it can be posted online for digital distribution or selling downloads, and you will also get a finished disc delivered as well. With so many options, there is no reason to go to another company.

Our DVD authoring packages range in services, but all will include the DVD encoding process, 1 DVD menu design and 1 sub menu design, a play all feature as well as up to 10 chapter points listed or 6 motion video thumbnails. We do offer extras or bonuses such as behind the scenes options, more chapters, 5.1 surround sound and even slide shows for an additional cost or even motion menus up to 30 seconds in length on your main menu.

What is a DVD Menu Design?

When you place a DVD into a player, the first thing that you will normally see is a menu. Our professionals take into account the needs of your project to help you decide on the DVD menu design. Many DVD menu designs include the Play, Play All, Subtitles, Sound Options, Extras and many other options on the main menu. Each of these sub menus would not be present without DVD menu design. There are a few general templates that are used in DVD authoring software, and these can include sound and motion from the footage included, but generally are limited as to what options you can use. Custom DVD menu design allows you to choose what you want the menu to look like, colors, and options and sub menus.

The DVD menu design you choose will be completed by one of our professionals that is knowledgeable in the areas of video, DVD authoring and graphic design, so that your finished project will work as you wish and will also have a professional appearance. Before the authoring is complete, we will even send you a PDF file through your email so that you can look at it beforehand and approve or disprove it. You can design your own menu using some of our options, or you can choose from readymade templates that will create a professional appearance for your project. Designing your own menus gives you the choice of adding options or taking away options from the menu or sub menus on your DVD project, but we still have guidelines that are in place for your project. This simply means that there must be a menu, and there are certain aspects of the menu that cannot be taken away, but can be altered to suit your needs.

We offer a wide array of packages for DVD authoring that includes DVD menu designs, and you are in charge of your project. DVD menu designs are available for your perusal, and if you see a menu on another disc you like, let us know. We are more than willing to work with your design and help you create the DVD you envision.

Green Printing

In a time when people are recognizing how delicate the environment is, it is important for companies to shift into a more environmentally conscious state.

We have taken the initiative and grown into an environmentally friendly operation by taking significant steps in our production of print products.

Abet Disc was one of the first printers in the nation to begin using soy-oil based inks instead of traditional petroleum-based ink. Also known as vegetable-oil ink, soy ink is a great advancement in the print industry. Soy ink is a safe and environmentally friendly ink because of its simple compound compared to petroleum–based ink. Using a simple process to make the ink, it consumes very little energy and makes it very efficient. Soy ink has many great advantages; one is its distinguishable clearness which allows for brighter colored ink, which petroleum-based ink do not allow because of its darker content. Thus soy inks are popular for their vibrant colors. Soy ink can also be easily removed from paper, which is helpful in paper recycling, as it is quicker to process the paper. As the print industry evolves, soy ink becomes an increasingly popular alternative.

Using unique Aqueous and UV coatings, we have shifted yet another critical step in producing environmentally friendly print products. The coatings which consist of very low to zero traces of volatile organic compounds (VOC) reduce harmful components that damage the atmosphere and the surrounding environments. Impregnated washing systems are used for press rollers and blankets which consist of minute traces of VOCs. Fountain solutions are free of or use reduced VOC solutions. We are on the constant lookout for safer and more environmentally friendly press room products, recycles all solutions and removes hazardous waste from their facilities, preventing it from getting into the natural environment. Our production facilities are all alcohol-free environments using only alcohol substitutes as well. Continued development in press room products assures only the safest solutions will be used in our facilities.

An essential ingredient in the print industry is paper. We utilizes paper that is produced specifically for paper-making and is not produced from illegally deforested trees.

Our research and development department is in a continuous search to find the highest and brightest quality paper while keeping the well being of the environment in mind.

As the environment needs us more and more, we are on a mission to use the safest and least polluting materials in producing printed products.
