How Are Movies On DVD?
on Jul 29, 2010 at 3:12:52 pm

How does Hollywood, Blockbuster, Netflix.. whoever.. how do they get full movies with special features on regular SDDVDs? I know this has to be a basic question for this group, but I've never thought to ask it.

There's no way I could fit all that is on a regular DVD from Blockbuster on a DVD that I authored using DVDSP and my Apple. Or is there?

Is there some type of patented compressor that only Hollywood and other DVD studios have that regular A/V entrepreneurs don't have access to?

Thanks for any education on this,

Most hollywood DVDs are DVD-9s Dual Layer disc, which hold 8.5GB. YOu can easily get 4 hours of material on a disc.

But they do have much higher end encoders, plus they are encoding perfect source material. Last but not least they have expert compressionist.

All that said I have authored many full featured DVDs using DVDSP and compressor.
