Blu-ray Duplication is finally catching on for some of our clients. The costs for Blu-ray(BD) Duplication has come down very dramatically over the last year which has sparked renewed interest and orders in 2010. We were paying $14 for a quality Blank BD Disc from TDK at this time last year. Our blank prices now are near $6. that is a dramatic reductions. Some of the lower quality suppliers are closer to $3 per blank, so we are really getting into the affordable range for many of our cutting edge clients who want high def delivery.
Blu-ray player costs have dropped very rapidly also, which is helping to further instigate adoption.
The last real roadblock in making BD more mainstream is the authoring software out there. So many platforms are still “glitchy” when it comes to outputting your final high def content out to master. Hopefully as the market adopts, more software developers will add resources into making their platforms more robust.
We have accepted both BD master and hard drives with the BDMV files on them. We do prefer the BD (blu-ray) master to the hard drive, though, as we have to up-charge for the transfer to the first master disc.
