dvd authoring process
on May 5, 2005 at 11:12:29 pm

Could someone direct me to some information about the entire process of making an encripted glass master and duplicating dvds from the time I have authored it in DVD Studio pro. Mainly I would like to know the significance of the DLT and macrovision, and to know if making a dlt is the only way to apply macrovision.

Thanks for your help

Glass Mastering comprises a number of stages needed to create a metalized glass master from which the stampers are produced for the DVDs to be stamped/replicated

Encryption CSS/Marcovision is done at the replication facility when making the Glass-master, depending on the replication facility you may be able to send your DVD-r master to the replicator and have them add the CSS/Marco-vision when creating the glass-master

Duplication is done with a CD/VD duplicator which you can purchase for a couple grand, you buy blank media and burn the Disc your self or have someone else do it for you

Replication is the process of making a glass-master, Stamper and the DVDs are manufactured and not burnt to blank media.

maybe that helps

I've been told that the DLT will ensure that your DVD will play in all DVD players. If you just duplicate or replicate DVD-R or DVD+R you take the chance of your DVD not playing in some players. I had this problem once. I duplicated 300 copies of a DVD-R, and the discs wont play in high end sony DVD players, they play fine everywhere else though. I now do DLT everytime.

The data is written to a DVD-R disc using 2048 byte sectors. If a DVD is to have Macrovision, CSS or region coding, a 2054 byte sector is required. These sectors cannot be written to a normal DVD-R, so the only way to create that formatting and get the data to the replicator is via DLT tape.

Hello, I'm really interested in this matter...
Does anybody know if DVD authoring discs are available in double layer format?

Thanks
Fabrizio

Is there any way to copy protect a DVD-R ?

Not really. The only "sort of" copy protection for writable DVDs is to burn your project to a DVD-RW that supports CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media) and burn DVD-R copies from this DVD-RW master. This seems to make copying a bit harder.

Also see the DVD Demystified FAQ: What are the copy protection issues?
