Sony is Starting Full Services for Blu-ray Disc Production


Sony is introduced an integrated suite of services to support BD production from HD video shooting, editing and authoring necessary for transferring HD content to disc, to disc mass production and packaging.

Sony PCL has established an exclusive BD authoring studio that provides authoring services compatible with the BD-ROM standard. Services include support for shooting and editing of HD content, high-level mastering, menu/subtitle creation and authoring. Services extend from disc production to creation of disc cases/jackets, accessories and packaging. Sony PCL is responsible for video-related software while Sony Music Communications is responsible for music-related video software.

Sony Music Manufacturing (SMM) in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan is responsible for the manufacturing of a stable supply of high-quality BD discs. SMM has already started manufacturing BD video contents for Japan and overseas compliant with the AACS (Advanced Access Content System) copyright protection standard as well as evaluation discs. To achieve efficient production for less cost, Sony is shifting from sheet coating to spin coating for disc covering and seeks to complete the shift by the end of this year.

Production capacity at SMM will initially be 300,000 discs per month, rising to 2.5 million per month this fall. It is envisaged that US facilities will be producing 5 million BD discs per month by year-end along with production of 2.5 million BD discs per month in Europe. This means that by year-end Sony's global production facilities should be manufacturing about 10 million BD discs per month, including production for PlayStation 3.
