[Jeff Pulera] "my understanding was that to use CSS you had to submit the project on DLT tape."


It has changed. Several authoring tools allow output of the DDP files to a hard drive. DVDSP and Scenarist are the two I know for sure that can. The resulting files can be burned onto a DVD and many (most?) replicators can and will replicate from these data discs.

Not that this method isn't without peril. There are several experts that recommend against it.

One possible problem is that the replicator will make thousands of perfect copies of the DDP files. Not good. Make sure you clearly label the disc to indicate that it contains DDP files. Doesn't hurt to make sure that your sales person at the replication house acknowledges they clearly understand what you are providing as a master.
