GEAR PRO Mastering Edition 8 is the professional choice for complete CD and DVD replication and mastering! GEAR has made Internet Transfer of CD and DVD titles simple, secure, and reliable.
GEAR converts your project or disc to an industry standard DDP image. This set of files is in the format that disc manufacturers require. The DDP (Disc Description Protocol) image contains all the contents of your master disc, plus formatting information that ensures your replicas will match your master exactly. The “electronic” version of your master is easily processed by disc replicators.
GEAR PRO Mastering Edition allows to read and convert CDs and DVDs to DDP Images, with the capability to generate and verify integrity checksums, generate a log file to include with the image, compress and encrypt the image, and transfer the image to a mastering facility or disc replicator via FTP.
Formatting DVD titles for CSS encryption is now supported! Pure UDF and incremental packet writing to CD and DVD media are also supported, as well as Creating Unix Rock Ridge format on Windows. In addition, support for several CD jukeboxes is included.
GEAR PRO Mastering Edition is fully multi-threaded, allowing you to record one or more titles to separate drives simultaneously, even while you work on creating a new title. For the ultimate in power and flexibility, GEAR can burn different titles, at different speeds, to different types of media, in different drive models, all in parallel, and with complete verification of every copy. To create reliable masters, get the CD and DVD recording software that professionals count on every day…
