TST was one of the firsts to implement two state-of-the-art authoring tools three years ago - SONY Blu-print and Sonic Solutions Scenarist. These two sets of authoring software are still the best amongst studio level BD authoring tools. With years of authoring and programming experience, we were one of the first in the market to create a BD master for replication. We stand out from the competition because our top engineers are able to handle advanced JAVA authoring functions of the new defined format BD-J. If you do your Blu-ray authoring with us, you will enjoy a hassle free, professional experience.
Blu-ray Disc Replication (BD-ROM)
Due to the huge capacity of up to 50GB, the Blu-ray Disc single and dual layer disc format allows for more than just a movie to be stored in the absolute best High Definition quality. Taking content owners beyond anything ever experienced, the format also offers room for additional extras. There's no need to pack additional discs to store these bonus materials, thereby eliminating costs for you and simplifying the end user's entertainment experience. Depending on the encoding method, there is room for more than five hours of High Definition quality video. Alternatively, Blu-ray Disc may be utilized to create discs with large amounts of material in Standard Definition quality, such as TV shows. Where a typical season of a TV show required multiple disc sets entire series can now be stored on just a single Blu-ray Disc.
Blu-ray discs extra values
A replicated Blu-ray Disc is designed to stay relevant for longer years than DVD.
As the result of recent breakthroughs in the development of hard coating for Blu-ray Disc, the discs offer much stronger resistance to scratches and fingerprints than other existing and proposed formats.
Extra Capacity and Capability
The Blu-ray disc's large capacity allows the finest quality High Definition video to be recorded at large bitrates (no need for tight compression that could affect picture quality) and, opens the doors to existing (High resolution images) and new features like producing an advanced interactive environment or creating more sophisticated bonus content, including network access or picture-in-picture menu.
As Blu-ray Disc offers five to ten times more capacity than CD and DVD, it is by far the cheapest format measured in cost per GB
Blu-ray Disc provides some of the strongest copy protection methods ever developed for any consumer format.
The Advanced Access Content System (AACS) is a standard for content distribution and digital rights management, developed by AS Licensing Administrator, LLC (AACS LA), a pool that involves Disney, Intel, Microsoft, Panasonic, Warner Bros., IBM, Toshiba, and Sony.
Unlike the copy protection on DVD (CSS) that can be applied as an option, Blu-ray disc replication copy protection (AACS) is mandatory and is governed by strict licensing procedures.
