Key Differences between CD Duplication And Replication

Postby baileyrays » Fri Aug 01, 2008 9:35 am

Some of the major differences between CD replication and CD duplication are:

1. While replication refers to the process of making CD or DVD from glass stampers, duplication refers to making CD or DVD by burning data onto easily available recordable media.

2. Replication process can be done only under temperature and dust controlled environment. But, duplication can be carried out in any normal environment such as in the office or at home with the help of CD burners and popular software.

3. Typically, a replication process is considered for runs larger than 1,000 copies, while duplication is usually done for limited or urgent jobs.

4. The discs produced with the process of replication are also of higher quality then that by the process of duplication.

5. Replication is a professional process where data cannot be added or changed which can be done in case of CD duplication.

6. For large volume production, replication is much more cost effective as compared to duplication.

7. Replication has many other benefits as compared to duplication, such as accuracy, quality, quantity, and packaging.

Depending upon the quantity of copies you require for your project, you can decide in favor of either replication or duplication. But to get the best results, you need to carefully select a company offering professional CD and DVD replication and duplication services.

What is DVD-5, DVD-9, and DVD-10 replication

Postby baileyrays » Wed Aug 06, 2008 8:57 am

Just adding more information.
About DVD-5, DVD-9, and DVD-10 replication


* DVD 5 replication is single-sided single layer. It is referred to as 4.7GB media which holds 4.37 computer GB (1 kilobyte = 1024 bytes) which is 120 minutes of audio and video. DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW support this format.

* DVD 9 replication is similar to DVD 5 replication in that all printing is done on one side and all the data is on the other side. However, the difference is that a DVD 9 is single-sided dual layer. It is referred to as 8.54 GB media which holds about 7.95 computer GB (or roughly 220 minutes of audio and video). It has been the most commonly used format for Hollywood movies.

* DVD 10 replication is double-sided single layer. It is referred to as 9.4 GB media which holds about 8.75 computer GB (or 240 minutes of audio and video). Since there is data on both sides, you have to flip the disc to watch the video on the other side. To replicate this format, you'll need to send us is two DVD-R masters. One DVD-R will be for side 1 and the other for side 2. The only downside to this is printing can only be done around the hub in 2 colors only.
