Getting The Best Results Using DVD Replication Services
The key to getting the best possible end product with the highest quality when you are replicating DVDs or CDs is to start with the highest possible quality master. Remember the DVD replication services do not alter the original DVD that you provide or change any of the information that you send via files over the internet or through file sharing services.
Many people mistakenly think that DVD replication services can “touch up” or tweak any of the quality issues on the original copy. Now that you know that can’t be done you need to focus on creating the highest possible quality original possible. To do this there are some common mistakes that you can avoid when creating your master hard copy DVD.
Start With the Best Materials
If you are going to take the time to create a DVD-R and then have this replicated to make copies, you need to start with the highest possible quality of DVD blank. This means that you don’t purchase the bulk lots online or choose the lowest cost DVD available at your local music store. Instead, go online and by a professional grade DVD. This means that the DVD itself will be free of even minor imperfections that can cause a lower quality copy through DVD replication services.
Don’t Copy from the Network Source
You can use files from the internet, but first download them to your hard drive. Then, when the files are downloaded you can then burn them to the master DVD. If you do directly copy from the network source you will have a poor quality product to provide for the DVD replication services.
Similarly do not have a bunch of different applications running at the same time you are creating the master DVD. In fact, it is a good idea to disconnect from the internet and stop all programs, including those running in the background.
Last but not least, never create a master DVD if you are using a laptop on battery power, especially if the battery is low. This will cause changes in the power to the processor and can cause a very low quality master. DVD replication services often provide tips for you if it is your first time creating a master CD that can help avoid these common mistakes.
