Notes

  • Adding content to a disc results in the need for more storage space, and may necessitate the need to increase the compression ratios of video and audio. Doing so decreases the quality of that video and audio.
  • When capturing from VHS, audio cassette or LP care is taken to capture at the highest possible quality, and filtering is performed to improve on the capture content. However, while great care is taken, due to the nature and lesser quality of original media, quality cannot be guaranteed.
  • The responsibility on copyright rests on the customer on an music tracks used on the disc.
