4. BluRay Masters (For Replication)

Pressing Media utilizes the EclipseSuite tools from Eclipse Data Technologies to premaster and encrypt Blu-ray titles. In order to begin the production process, we request that you supply a BDCMF image. The authoring tools we're aware of that make this format are Sonic Solutions Scenarist, Sony Blu Print, and NetBlender DoStudio BD Authoring (there may be a few others).


Here is an excerpt from a slide showing the files that are inside a BDCMF. The files in bold are mandatory.














Important Note: If you are thinking about sending a playable BD-R as media for DUPLICATING ONTO A BD-R please read this: Most BD-R software is created using a format that is used for home movies (BDAV). This format is not suitable for replication because pre-recorded media needs to be in a BDMV format. BDMV has a different structure and we cannot convert a BDAV to a BDMV.
