ISO Files and How To Provide Us Your Video Master

We recently posted about how to provide us with your audio master for duplication and replication projects. We work with many different bands and musicians to provide high-quality CD duplication and replication, for which we prefer a master in the form of a DDP file or a physical audio CD.

Eyedea Worx and Notion Worx also handles many different film projects, from features and documentaries to corporate training videos and instructional DVDs. For video projects, our requirements for a client-provided master are much the same as with audio; we prefer an .ISO file or a physical DVD master copy.

Much like with a DDP, an ISO file is a single file that’s an exact representation of an entire video file. The contents of a disc can be precisely duplicated in a single ISO file, which means that we can then duplicate the exact contents of the video project without needing any additional instructions.

An ISO file is the only file that essentially acts like a physical DVD, with all of the data intact. This is why we like to either receive an ISO or a physical DVD, as both are great for re-creating an exact video sequence. ISO files can be sent via a program like Wetransfer or Dropbox and can reach us from anywhere in the world, saving shipping time and cost.

If you have separate video files (like MP4, Apple Pro-Res, or any other video format), we here at Eyedea Worx can most likely edit the clips together and author a new DVD master, but this will require some additional time and cost. Cost for video editing and authoring will depend on the length of the video and particular requirements for the DVD menu, as well as total time is takes to complete all requests. We also will need exact instructions for editing and sequencing and will create a test disc for approval before moving forward with any duplication or replication; this extra time is often not possible if a job needs to be turned around quickly.

So when considering Eyedea Worx for your DVD duplication and replication, keep in mind that the best master you can provide to ensure accurate reproduction is either a physical DVD or a ISO file. 

Live Music Video and Live Music Streaming from Eyedea Worx

We here at Eyedea Worx love live music and are happy to work with so many talented musicians.

We sponsor as many music festivals and events as we can, and had a great time at last weekend’s Higher Ground Music Festival in Denver. Over two days we got to see many great live sets from bands around the country, and took TONS of video for you to enjoy! You can find the full playlist from the 2015 Higher Ground Music Festival below:

We took video for new bands we had never seen before and were happy to meet like Calliope Musicals and Me Like Bees but also local bands we’ve worked with in the past like High Five, Red Stinger, and King Cardinal.

Eyedea Worx is also a title sponsor for Mountain Size Presents, Live at Evergroove. A monthly live show from Evergroove Studio in Evergreen, CO, the broadcast streams LIVE as the action happens and has welcomed local Denver acts and national (and international) touring bands alike.

Last night, Evergroove welcomed Texas rock band Jack Kerowax for a live streaming show, and you re-watch the live stream at Youtube here:

March Featured Artist: Meniskus

IG6O9378-Meniskus2(1)





by Brooke Layman


Meniskus is not an easy band to review. Usually I’m taken to a certain place or time or memory that I can relate the music I’m hearing to. I sat down at my desk today and played song after song after song. What happened? I wasn’t transported to one place or time or memory, I was suspended above them all. Yes… all of them. The deliberate rhythms, the soothing vocals, the explosion and depth of their craft… These guys don’t mess around.


It’s even difficult to compare Meniskus to other musicians. Some have likened them to local talent Devotchka, and in fact both bands record at Boulder, Colorado’s legendary Coupe Studios. The band says they draw inspiration from bands like U2, Pink Floyd, and Tool which can be heard in the haunting romance that comes through on songs like “Letters.” But there is also a distant hint of post-punk influences like The Cure which makes Meniskus even more layered and alluring. With the intricacies and blending of sounds, it’s hard to believe that there are only three of them on stage.

The band consists of Ryt, Ostberg, and Bardusco, all from different backgrounds and music philosophies including classical, Latin, and electronic/dance. Their sound brings to mind what a symphony by Mozart might sound like if he were to compose one while listening to Carlos Santana and eating Arroz con Pollo for dinner. It’s magnificent and flavorful.


While they have currently been on a break from playing 100+ shows a year, Meniskus is still staying busy. With the recent release of their new music video “Greed” and their side project, Rue Vital which integrates local and national talents into an on stage jam session of bliss, these guys are truly dedicated to their craft. When you have opened for bands like Dave Matthews, Tom Petty, and The Roots, you know that you’ve got something special and Meniskus definitely does. Make sure to connect with the band so you don’t miss out on the announcement of May/June concert dates in Colorado.
