Creating an interactive experience
CDS wants to author your next DVD. We have authored feature films, reels for directors and producers, comedy and music videos, instructional videos, documentaries and videos for corporate, government, and educational institutions.
Our authoring studio is equipped to take advantage of all features available to the DVD format including 5.1 surround sound, subtitles, closed captions, multiple angles, multiple sound tracks (languages), wide screen (16 x 9), slide shows and cross platform file and web linking.
Some of our authored titles include:
Every authored project, from simple straight transfers to complex feature films, receives the same hardware encoding and close attention to video and audio fidelity. All projects are real-time MPEG-2 video encoded and real-time Dolby or DTS audio encoded, including 5.1 surround sound.
We encourage our clients to take an active role in the creation of their DVD. While all of the graphics shown in our sample reel were created by CDS, we author many titles in which our clients provide their own menu assets. Please contact us for more information.
We encode from almost any SD video format including: Digital Betacam, Betacam SP, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO, DVCAM, DV, S-VHS, VHS, Digital-8, Hi-8, and 3/4”. For surround sound we accept DTRS masters or AIFF or WAVE files. Videotapes should be prepared, if possible, with uninterrupted time code from start to finish with at least 30 seconds pre roll and 30 seconds post roll. SMPTE bars and tone are always appreciated.
