DVD duplication or DVD replication?
What's the difference?

Home > Services > DVD Duplication And Replication

DVD Replication Services Media for DVD duplication NYC starts out as a blank DVDR with a layer of light sensitive dye that then has its digital data laser etched (burned) in a DVD drive.

DVD replication, good for higher quantity needs, is created from a glass master with a photo resist layer coating. A high powered gas laser encodes the data pits to the photo resist on the glass master. The photo resist layer is then developed removing the photo resist that has been exposed to the laser. The glass master is then metalized with, typically, a nickel micro coating. A new electroformed master is created from the glass master. This hardened master is placed in a mold. Plastic polymers are then heated to melting, injected into the mold and the data is then actually stamped into the polymer creating a replicated DVD.

So what, in the end, is the difference between the two? Simply put; for DVD replication all the data is stamped at the same time to the disk and for DVD Duplication the data is written, via laser, to each blank DVDR disk.
