What is MPEG Encoding?

The process of transferring from a source tape to our DVD system is called encoding. Every project we encode is performed under the strict DVD specifications in the MPEG-2 format. MPEG-2 is a digital video compression scheme that allows video to be greatly compressed without much visual loss. However, to get MPEG-2 to look good, much work is needed along with the proper equipment.

Our trained staff determine whether to use a constant bit-rate or a 1 or 2 pass variable bit-rate for your DVD project. Our ultra high quality real time encoding equipment is dedicated to solely for this purpose. We have had clients throw away our competitors DVD's when they compared them with ours. Along with the MPEG-2 video capture, we encode AC-3 sound. We also have the ability to encode in 2 channel stereo or 5.1 surround sound based on the source.

In addition to using an all digital system, we also use digital noise reducers and Time Based Correctors for all of our encoding. All encoding from digital masters is done through SDI, which is superior to Firewire or component video. It constantly monitored through waveform and vectorscope monitors. The source can be provided in almost any video format, analog or digital. We accept almost up to 30 different formats, both consumer and professional. Once encoded we begin our DVD Authoring process to create the look of your DVD.
