topic icon Blu-Ray BDCMF encoding for Blue Oyster Cult Hard Rock Live

We've been converting a newly created Blu-ray for Blue Öyster Cult's performance at Hard Rock Live, Northridge Ohio, Cleaveland back in 2014 ready for Bluray replication. We have been engaged 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 2019. Richie is currently touring the world with Blue Öyster Cult who are on tour forever.

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.

The Hard Rock Live includes performances of a lot of Blue Öyster Cults songs including OD'd On Life Itself, The Red and The Black, Golden Age of Leather, Burnin' for You, Career of Evil, Shooting Shark, The Vigil, ME 262, Buck's Boogie, Black Blade, Then Came the Last Days of May, Godzilla,(Don't fear) The Reaper, Harvester of Eyes, I Love the Night, Hot Rails to Hell and Cities on Flame with Rock n Roll.

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.
