Effective data storage is now impossible to deal with without CDs and DVDs. These mediums had revolutionised the way information is processed and accessed. The highest demand for quality replication services comes from well – developed countries and is strictly linked with their fast – growing economy. One of the biggest source of upsurge in the demand for replication services is also entertainment industry, fuelled by avid gamers, film and music fans, so obviously a huge target.

Replication consists in copying the information written on your original master onto a “glass master.” The glass master is later used to make a stamper mold which serves as a copying medium. It allows to stamp the data from the original onto injection-molded DVD-ROM or CD-ROM discs as they dry. The copies are then lacquered, metallised, tested and packaged. The final packaging is suited to buyer’s requirements. Packaging guarantees sustainability of a discs by protecting it from external factors like heat, dust and direct sunlight.

CD and DVD replication is a process of mass reproduction, which means you should consider it if you plan to make between 500 to 2000 copies of a data disc, music disc and video disc. This amount proves to be the most cost effective. The whole process is fully automated and takes between 7 to 10 days maximum. It is longer than standard duplication, which takes 2 – 3 business days, but the unit cost of replicated disc is lower. Replication is best to deal with CD – and DVD -ROMs and Blu-Ray discs. Replicated DVDs can contain 1 layer (DVD-5) of information, 2 layers on one side (DVD-9), 1 layer on each side (DVD-10) or 2 layers on each side (DVD-18). When comes to compatibility, a replicated disc will work on all DVD players and computer drives.

Previously companies specialized in CD DVD replication were mostly interested in bulk orders. Before choosing which method (duplication or replication) is best for you should define your needs and balance costs.
