Hi. I've just started doing wedding videography on the side and want to provide my client with the best looking video. Most clients don't have Blu-Ray players. What's the best way to get my edited HD footage to the client in a way that they will enjoy the quality at home?

any help would be appreciated!

Not HD.
HD upon request should be your policy. Otherwise you will give them files they can't play which will be perceived as defective.

ok, but all my equipment is in HD, do I just burn it to a standard? is there a lot of quality loss?

"Most clients don't have bluray players"

This is remedied with a 50 dollar purcase at Walmart now. YOU buy them a player, and add the cost into their bill.

By not delivering in HD on BluRay, you are doing a doing a disservice to your clients. I offer delivering on DVD as an option if they prefer. I used to package a BluRay player in the early days. If they don't have one, then encourage them to get one.

You can also deliver via Vimeo download. Then they can play it on their iPod or iPad and it saves you from making labels and shipping.

I ran into the same problem back in the early DVD days. Clients wanted the best quality, I wanted to deliver the best quality. The easy solution: I provided the DVD player, and charged them for it. I made this clear: the DVD package included a DVD player guaranteed to work with the DVDs I create. They could opt out if they did not need this, but (particularly in the old days) I could not guarantee compatibility (though I did offer a DVD sample on request, so the customer could check out compatibility).

BD players are certainly at the point where an entry-level player can be provided as part of your HD package, with a rebate if they opt out. Heck, I've given BD players as birthday presents to several family members, just so I don't have to send them lower quality video, even for "just family" stuff.

Hmmm..,never thought of offering a Blu-ray player with the pkg. I just offer both with no additional charge for HD. I give them the option of purchasing a "Digital Copy" for use on their PC's, iPods, iPhones, etc.
