Compression 3 hours on 1 DVD

My boss would like me to compress 3 hours of programming on to 1 dvd. Anyone care to share any compression techniques, or has anyone had experience compression 3 hours on one dvd? I am using Avid Express Pro and compression in Sorenson. Thanks!

I would try to avoid Squeeze for compressing MPEG-2, but if you must and want to fit 3 hours onto a single layer DVD-R, then I would suggest encoding at 352x480. At that size, you can encode using a lower bit rate, and while the output may be a little bit softer than full resolution, you should be able to avoid most artifacts that would be noticable at low bit rates for D1 sized encodings. Now, if you were willing to use a Double Layer disc for burning the DVD, then you wouldn't have too much to worry about it.

Thanks...normally I don't use squeeze outside of work, but unforunately this is what I have at work. What are the reasons for avoiding squeeze for compressing mpeg-2's, I'm curious! Thanks for the help!
