I had to travel to Slough to visit out DVD mastering company yesterday. We had a few technical problems with issuing the master on a DLT VS1 tape. Anyhow, it’s the first time I’ve been in a mastering plant, and I’ve been producing CD’s for 11 years now… and the end of every project involves cutting a disk to send to MASTER.
The place is space age! The whole place is a clean room, and I had to wear white overalls, shoes covers, hair net, and face mask while I was there. All very odd. But it was fascinating watching the whole process. Actually seeing a glass master for the first time was amazing.DVD, DVD Mastering
