I'll need to make several DVD, CD, VHS, and Audio Cassette copies for each project that is sent to me every week. There will be typically 2-3 projects arriving each week. What is the best way to duplicate and store the media? I do not want to spend a lot on high end duplicators as the raw material isn't of very good quality to begin with and I also don't have much of a budget. There are also won't be large quantities needed for each requested format. I have been in the film/video industry for several years, but this is my first time operating a company in a corporate video post-production capacity. What kind of equipment will be the best to purchase for my situation, and what kind of work flow is suggested?
I have a G5 Mac Quad, with Final Cut 5.0.4, DVD Studio Pro 4.0.3, Compressor 2, and Soundtrack Pro.
I appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.
PS - The videos are typically 3 hours long. Do you suggest Dual Layer DVD's or standard DVD-R?
