DVD outgest

As a basis for DVD outgest, any Material entry with Format type of DVD to which an uncompressed DVD ISO file has been uploaded can be used.

A DVD ISO file is a direct single-file duplicate of the data on a DVD video disc. There are many software products that can help you generate DVD ISO files from existing physical DVDs, or even generate them from scratch using video files.

Placing a DVD Shipping Order

mediapeers can only output single-layer DVDs. Consequently, you cannot outgest DVD ISO files larger than 4.38 GB.

To start the outgest process, go to Material > Orders and click New Order > DVD shipping, then follow the steps of the order wizard:

  1. Choose content: select the catalog entries you’d like to outgest files from. Simply start entering a title and search suggestions will be shown. Selecting a parent entry (such as a Series) will select all associated entries (such as Episodes). You can add as many entries as you’d like.
    For each entry you’ve added, a dropdown menu will appear. From that menu, select the DVD ISO file you’d like to deliver.Apart from Material entries of type DVD with an available DVD ISO file, standard PAL formats (IMX50 and XDCAM HD422) are also eligible for outgest. When choosing an IMX50 or XDCAM HD422 file, this will automatically be transcoded to DVD ISO prior to DVD outgest.To output multiple files from one catalog entry, simply add the same catalog entry multiple times.
    Once you’ve made your selection, click Next.
