Bring Your Releases Up to a Higher Level
A widely-distributed disc product should look and sound as good as it can while at the same time adhering to strict standards of playback compatibility and internal logic, and its design and architechture should serve the content in the most elegant way possible. Over the past nine years Modulus has created 100's of well-polished commercial DVD masters that have been distributed to millions of users around the world. We've set uncompromising standards for aesthetics, technical compatibility and ease of use. As a result our clients rely on us for disc authoring projects that run the gamut from simple DVDs used for film screenings, to highly-praised retail releases, to highly interactive DVDs utilized in kiosks and exhibits. We've extended the same expertise into our Blu-Ray disc mastering services. Each disc mastering project runs through a rigorous QC, review/approval cycle that helps ensure 100% client satisfaction.
If you've been disappointed with your recent releases and want to step up to a higher level please give us a call.
OPTIMAL PICTURE AND SOUNDBesides progressive computer display, lately DVDs are required to upscale properly on increasingly impresive home theater plasma and projection systems. A lot of interlaced DVDs produced in early 2000's just don't measure up. We are specialists in creating progressive image DVDs that often restore the cadence of the original footage. So film-originated projects (even if transferred and edited at 29.97i) can be made into gorgeous-looking 24p masters. Our care maintaining the best possible encoding quality is the reason our customers return and remain loyal.
SMART BUTTON NAVIGATIONA DVD should always be a joy to use. We try to stick to accepted user conventions and Smart Button Navigation gives a disc a memory of a user's selections which ultimately make our DVDs easier to navigate.

UPLOADING ASSETSClients can upload menu artwork files to our server. Artwork files can be either ready-to-author menus, or materials for us to design menus. Please read the Menu Design Guide before creating menu art files. Modulus can design still menus as well as motion menus, an intro/build menu, or menu transitions for you. Unless they are really short, video assets are best delivered on a hard drive (as hi-res QT .MOVs or Media Managed FCP projects) or from tape masters. [See also Modul.us Motion Graphics]
