The Authority prefers programs recorded on DID-R formats. We have found that DVD's must contain only one program per disc, finalized to DVD video, with only one menu that does not require the selection of the program from within that menu. DVDs recorded with multiple layers of menus, not finalized to DVD video or containing more than one program will not play back properly through our automation.
