DVD AND VCD DISTRIBUTION
There are a few different options for distributing your video on DVD or VCD. One is to submit your video to existing compilations. The producers of the compilation will look after distribution for you, though you can arrange to be responsible for distributing copies in your own area. Another simple approach if you have a CD or DVD burner in your computer is to duplicate DVDs or VCDs on a small scale yourself.
If you anticipate distributing larger numbers of discs then you can author a master disc and have it professionally duplicated. Prices are continually dropping for blank media, duplication and digital printing – but should be budgeted for as they can still be substantial. You can then choose to either set up an ordering system yourself online or through the post, or pass the discs on to a mail-order company that may have their own online credit-card ordering facility to take the trouble of filling orders and delivering them out of your hands.
