DVD Duplication

CD, DVD and Blu-ray duplicationIdeal for fast short lead times and small volumes.

Duplicated DVD’s are copied by burning them similar to how you would at home. However we have machines which will do many copies at once allowing us complete projects quickly when you need discs in a rush.

People often think the quality of a duplicated DVD is inferior to a replicated DVD but this is not the case. The quality of the audio or data on both duplicated and replicated DVD’s is identical.

Minimum order quantity: 1 (depending on print style)

Available print options: Inkjet, colour thermal, black only Prism, Screen and Litho print.

Formats Available: DVD5, DVD9 (duplicated DVD9 may not play on all DVD players)

DVD Replication

CD, DVD and Blu-ray ReplicationEconomical on larger quantities but with a longer lead time to duplication.

DVD replication is also refereed to as Glass Mastering or DVD pressing.This is due to the steps in the production process. There is a great deal of set up involved but once that’s complete the discs are produced very quickly.

Its for this reason that replication has a longer lead time, has a minimum quantity but is very cost effective on larger orders.

Minimum order quantity: 500

Available print options: Screen and Litho print.

Formats Available: DVD5, DVD9, DVD10

Is cheap DVD duplication good value?

CD duplication from Discus GroupNo, often cheap DVD duplication is not the best value.  We often have DVD duplication customers come to us having just had their DVDs produced by the cheapest company they could find and are then disappointed by the end result. It’s not always down the thickness of the paper of the print type either so just comparing the specifications on the quote isn’t the issue. At Discus Group we go to great lengths to make sure we produce the best quality product for you the first time, so while we may not always be the absolute cheapest DVD duplication company you can find, we would like to think we offer the best value.

A few examples of issues we come across regularly with cheap DVD coping companies are…

  • Poorly cut and folded inserts or wallets.
  • Poor print from using low resolution artwork.
  • Barcodes which won’t scan due to being too small or poorly printed

At Discus Group we never print artwork without first checking it. We go through a comprehensive list to check to make sure you receive a high quality finish. Before using any artwork which doesn’t pass our checks we always advise our clients and suggest ways to improve them. This may seem picky but it’s something that can make a massive difference to the end result. It is worth spending a little longer getting things right at the start than having to remake a project.

Using our years of experience (actually it decades but who wants to feel old!)  We can help advise you on things to consider to make the most of your project rather than just producing what we are given. Are the DVDs for radio play? Then have you got ISRC codes on the discs to help track royalty payments?  Have you considered a folded insert in your jewel case rather than a single sheet printed both sides? This will help it from falling out of the case each time it’s opened.

When considering which company to trust to produce your DVD Project don’t just look for the cheapest and don’t even just compare the weight of the card or print type to judge quality, look at what that company will do to make sure your project is the best it can be first time. Then you can make sure you get the best value DVD duplication.
