Most chain restaurants rely on their consistency of food preparation across their different locations for brand strength. This means that how the food is prepared and how the kitchens are maintained is paramount for their success.

But did you know that the best and most cost effective way to distribute the video training to their employees is through duplicated DVD-R media? It’s true! Most people can play a DVD-R in almost anything; their computers, laptops, DVD-R player, Blu-ray player, X-Box, Playstation and even their cars or trucks if new enough! No internet or streaming service is required, and with DVD-R media being such a reliable and affordable option, this makes it so that restaurants that roll out new menu items or products can easily train their staff by recording the procedures to video and DVD-R media for internal distribution and further training.

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin19 January 2015

Many experienced independent film makers and documentary producers are familiar with submitting their work to film festivals, streaming purchase sites and/or pre-screening events. They know that the technical requirements for how the BD-R or DVD-R is to be formatted usually are very specific, or the film could be rejected with not enough time to re-author a new disc! For example, to submit a DVD film to Amazon for purchase, the DVD-R needs to be a single VTS without any menus or other video tracks included; just one VTS structure containing a set of VOB files for the one VTS. The disc media needs to be high quality as well, to avoid any potential compatibility issues. When you’ve spent an enormous budget on your film or documentary, be sure to wrap up the most important yet inexpensive tangible asset at the end so that your submission to your next big event goes smoothly!

Tradeshow Preparations

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin12 January 2015

It’s good to know the tricks of the trade when preparing for your tradeshow booth. After all, you only get one chance to make a great first impression! It’s important to remember the essentials; brochures, business cards, discount handouts, friendly staff, samples or demos to show, etc. But it’s also a good idea to show off your product promotional video in beautiful HD resolution, and most likely looping on a nice HD screen for potential new leads to see from far away. One of the best tricks of the trade to accomplish this task, is to make a simple looping BD-R (blu-ray) disc that you can play on your blu-ray player. They also make great hand outs! This is so much more cost effective than replicating and packaging retail ready blu-ray discs, also because of the licensing it takes to do that, when really you just need to show the video in showrooms or trade shows; not for retail. So this is just another amazing tip from GotMedia in Orange County, CA of another great way to use BD-R media in order to really stand out with your business or product at your next tradeshow!

Best Archiving Practices

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin08 January 2015

There are a lot backup methods people use when archiving important data and media files. For example, some use cloud services, which isn’t great for large file sizes, and some use reduntant external HDs… but when it really needs to be organized on an ongoing basis, stored safely and within a working system that can be followed each time you archive, we found that archiving using optical disc media such as DVD-R or BD-R media, with the names of the contents copied into a database file for quick retrieval, is the very best method. This way, no power source is necessary for the media itself and they can be easily stored with confidence of reliability; while the database tells you which numbered discs the contents you are looking for are on. So using quality media, a naming convention that can grow with you as long as you are backing up projects and a database for search ability and organization is definitely the way to go! Call a GotMedia specialist for more information on how you can utilize the different media formats available to you for you business!
