Hire DIGIRAW and get:

Visual accuracy.

We will rip your discs to stunning bit-rate picture-perfect quality along with Blu-ray HD preservation, including HDR (High Dynamic Range) for your 4K discs.

DIGIRAW exceeds visual quality expectations

Premium sound.

All devices play a stereo track, but your home theatre system will relish surround sound. We, therefore, include multiple audio tracks for your mp4, including uncompressed DTS and DTS-MA/HD. For the MKV, we will transfer uncompressed TrueHD, Atmos or DTS-X audio options too.

Disc-to-Digital perfection

Its all about the details.

Forced subtitles 

While the mp4 file is the favoured choice for playback compatibility on all devices, subtitles, unlike the MKV, cannot be switched on and off at will. We, therefore pay particular attention to capture and burn in occasional foreign or alien Sci-Fi speaking scenes so that they display for you automatically.

MP4 metadata tagging > 

Bring your media collection to life.

Metadata such as cover art, plot summary, cast, directors, year, genre, ratings, season numbers, and episode numbers and names are essential information empowering offline media servers such as iTunes to populate all fields across all your devices. Your titles will look and behave just as if you had purchased them from the iTunes Store directly.

File naming > 

The metadata agents adopted by media servers and players such as Plex, Emby and Infuse 6 perform best with accurate file naming. Major types of content are best separated from each other too; for example, we list movie and television content within defined parent folders.

MP4 or MKV?

Which file format should you choose?

Either way, you get high quality digital videos with no warnings, trailers or menus to navigate.

The MP4 is favoured by over 90% of our customer's thanks to smart video compression techniques delivering smaller file sizes with no real noticeable loss in visual quality.

  • Surround sound audio is uncompressed for a truly immersive experience.
  • We can also burn in full-time (always on) one of the subtitle options available on your disc(s).
  • Soft-subtitles (occasional foreign or alien speaking scenes) we burn in for automatic inclusion during playback.

MKV, similar to the mp4 is also a container format but with added flexibility. Our process is lossless; a term used to describe the action of "no compression". If the film on your DVD is 4GB or 30GB on Blu-ray, then your MKV will be 4GB or 30GB respectively.

Our studio will create your MKV as a 1:1 clone of the film or episodes and capture all audio (DTS, TrueHD, Atmos & DTS-X), language and subtitles presented by your disc which can be selected manually and automatically by most media servers and devices. Our process excludes trailers, warnings and bonus footage.

Points to consider...

  • Not all devices natively play MKV, so it's worth checking first. That said, many media servers will transcode on the fly and instantly convert your title during playback for any device compatibility.
  • Transcoding on the fly can be an intensive process so you will need to check the power of your NAS or computer. The number of simultaneous multiple streams should also be factored in.
  • Files sizes are larger so you may need to consider your storage options. 100 DVD films transferred to mp4 may require just 175GB. The same 100 films in MKV could total 450GB.
