Blu-ray Disc Replication
AACS and stamper fee included in the pricing
Almost all Blu-ray replicators in the world, there are only 30 or so, only accept Blu-ray replication master in form of BD-CMF. Unfortunately not all Blu-ray authoring software can output or export BDCMF. Most consumer level software can only output the authoring result as BDMV. However BDVM cannot be used for replication although it can be played on almost all Blu-ray players. If you do not have access to softwar that can output BDCMF, New Cyberian will take your BDMV disc and convert it to BDCMF for you.
Listed below are software that are known to be able to create replication ready Blu-ray Disc™ in BDCMF format
- Sony Blu-Print
- Roxio DVDit ProHD - A discontinued Roxio product. Try to find it from other after market sources.
- Scenarist BD Studio - The software has changed hands many times. Rovi is the current owner but its selling strategy is unclear. You cannot find this product on Rovi's website.
There are many programs that can output BDMV which is acceptable by New Cyberian as replication ready Blu-ray Disc™ master. Listed below are some of the most common ones.
A Blu-ray case is the only form of packaging that is designed for people to easily identify a Blu-ray™ product. Until Blu-ray™ dominates the market in the future, we suggest use the Blu-ray cases for packaging so your audience will not put a Blu-ray™ disc into a standard DVD player.
From the Packaging pull-down choose Blu-ray Cases if you need Blu-ray case packaging.

Burn the finished artwork on a CD and mail it to us together with the content master Blu-ray disc to be replicated. You can also send us the artwork electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by using free service provided by www.yousendit.com or www.sendspace.com.
You can submit your master on BD-R, USB or Firewire hard drive, or DLT tape. When you submit the master on BD-R the accptable format should be BDCMF or BDMV. If you submit in BDMV format New Cyberian will convert your master into BDCMF format. Do not submit BD-R in BDAV format because it is useless for BD replication. For DLT submission the acceptable formats are BD CMF 0.9 and SONY CMF. You can use Windows Backup utility to copy the CMF file set to a high quality DLT III or DLT IV cassette tape. For hard drive submission, the requirement is same as DLT but the BDCMF files are stored on hard drive instead of the DLT cassette tapes
If you place the order online, please include a copy of the online invoice when you send us the master by mail.
New Cyberian Systems guarantees the replicated Blu-ray discs will be exactly the same as the master provided to us by our clients. We will not be liable for any latent errors that are inherent in the content. Please make sure to check and test the master before sending it to us.
Note: All Blu-ray manufacturing prices include glass master and stamper, film charges, Blu-ray disc replication, AACS registry, and 5-Color (full color) silkscreen / offset printing directly onto the disc. There is absolutely NO extra charge except for shipping.
For all Blu-ray replication orders your artwork will be professionally printed onto the disc surface by either silkscreen or offset printing -- the same quality as any retail CD's you can find in music stores.
