Authoring is the process of combining materials such as video, audio, and other graphics into a DVD for viewing on an a device such as a DVD player or a computer. Often times this requires the creation of an user interface, or a menu, with play and chapter buttons allowing the user to navigate and access the different video, audio and image assets with ease and convenience. In the case of DVD-ROMs, this interface is called a splash page.
Do I need authoring?
You have a finished video or film that you're ready to send it in for production. You might be asking "My video is finished, why the heck would I need authoring?" Even though your video or film may be finished, these materials still may need to be formatted and mastered correctly to disc to be ready for replication. There are specific standards set for DVDs and DVD-ROMs to ensure your discs will play as expected, whether on a DVD player or a computer. For example, if you send us a VHS tape for DVD production, we cannot manufacture DVDs directly from that tape. Even though both a videotape and a DVD contain and play video, they are two completely different formats. Authoring is required to convert the tape into a digital format that meets the DVD specification. If your master is not authored correctly, you run the risk of producing discs that don't perform as expected.
