'Our Vision Is You'
LIVE PERFORMANCE I MUSICAL THEATRE I DANCE PRODUCTION
Creating a DVD is one of the most popular ways of providing a film that captures what usually adds up to hours of hard work and dedication. Hours of practicing and trying to get everyone together at the same time to produce a theatrical masterpiece. At Dance Vision UK we pride ourselves on obtaining the best quality possible so that your DVD plays at the highest possible quality. This service is the usual choice for the annual shows produced by the miriad of peforming arts and dance schools. Recently we've been looking at alternative ways of providing high definition quality and believe we have a solution that will work for dance festival performances. The quality of dvd is reproduced in standard definition and you may have noticed the difference in quality between a DVD or your HD television, HD channel or blu-ray player.
Not everyone has a blu-ray player so dvuk now offers an alternative. An HD film on a usb stick, playable through a variety of devices by plugging directly into your Xbox, Smart TV's, Playstation3 or laptop. The latest alternative in High Definition viewing. Because it is not possible to provide a secure USB with copyright protection like a DVD, this option is only available for individual performs at the moment.
At dvuk we use the latest in professional high definition Sony camcorders. Our authoring studio is able to offer DVD creation for all levels of broadcasting.
We can also provide you with a range of alternative formats should you want to add to your website or create a powerpoint presentation.
If DVD is your prefered choice then we will plan and design your menu so that chapters are easy to find and start at the beginning of each number.
Or, if you have a series of photographs or old video film that you would like included. We can create additional links on the menu.
Your DVD film will have relevant titles to give you that real feeling of corporate product and end credits that include awards and thank you's and the names of every performer to mark the occasion.

The pinnacle of high definition with the Sony HDR-FX1000 HD Handycam® camcorder. 25p Progressive Scan Mode delivers high-quality, film-like motion for brilliant scene reproduction while CinemaTone Gamma™ and CinemaTone Color™ provide the color and gamma range to give your footage an amazing film-like feel. This HD camcorder also features three 1/3-inch ClearVid™ CMOS image sensors with Exmor™ derived technology for capturing sharp, detailed images even in lower-light situations.

To improve the audio and recording format we also use the ever popular Sony HVR-Z5E. With film quality to match the FX1000 the Z5 also has various recording options with the HVR-MRC1K in HYBRID operation. These include Synchronous recording, Relay recording or HVR-MRC1K only recording. Audio is improved with the addition of XLR 3-pin connectors with two channels for more versatility with theatre connectivity.
Some technical stuff:
All our DVD's are encoded to Mpeg and Dolby digital using the same technology you would expect from a television studio.

Filmed in 1080i True-HD for DTV broadcast
Effective Picture Resolution = 1440 x 810 (16:9)

Please be aware that although the picture quality is superb when filming, there may be a drop in performance when viewed on your DVD player if watched on a high definition television due to upscaling.
For true high definition viewing you will either need to view via blue ray or request a data file to view on your smart TV.
dvuk will design and create your DVD by including video, audio mixing, photographic images, corporate logos, word processed menus and text, creative imagery and deliver it packaged and ready for viewing or as a data file suitable for uploading to a website.
