topic icon Blu-Ray BDCMF encoding for Blue Oyster Cult 40th Anniversary Agents of Fortune

We've been converting a newly created Blu-ray for Blue Öyster Cult's 40th Anniversary of Agents of Fortune Live tour. Named after the fourth studio album from the BOC and played live in 2016 as the 40th anniversary basically playing the album back to back. A full HD multi-camera live performance from the band that never stops touring with audio mastering as 5.1 by band member Richie Castellano.

We have checked the Blu-ray master and created the BDCMF format ready for Blu-ray replication. We have been engaged again by sound engineer and band member Richie Castellano (Band Geek Studios) who has created the Bluray with a new 5.1 surround mix and will be releasing in 2020 we believe.

Replication factories require Blu Ray masters to be provided in a BDCMF format, which is not supported by many authoring programmes and needs to be created with specialist software - which we have. So Richie came to us for a quick turnaround encode.

Richie delivered the finished Blu-ray disk master to us as BDMV folders using wetransfer. We could then check playback and look for any issues in the original Blu-ray menus and then create the required BDCMF files for replication - and send them back again electronically.

If you need to create Blu-ray replication masters or need DCP or DVD authoring then please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.
