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
