What Is DVD Duplication And Is It The Route You Should Go Down?

by VDC Group CD & DVD Replicators

The first in the UK to bring Blu-ray to these shores, the group are also one of the top producers of DVD Duplication in the UK.

This means that when it comes to DVD Duplication in London they are at the top of their game.

But why use duplication or even DVD Replication when it comes to copying images or text? Well, firstly DVDs tend to be used mainly for video and film output in the entertainment industry. That means movies, music, the arts and leisure such as computer gaming (a hugely growing and profitable industry today).

The corporate, manufacturing and retail world have also cottoned on to the advances in DVD copying and use them frequently to display their products or services, in presentations to prospective customers or even for staff training purposes. In other words duplication and replication techniques when it comes to DVDs have a wide range of uses for a vast number of industries in the UK, Europe and the world in general. No country is ignorant of the advances in 21st century DVD copying.

The reason DVDs work so well is because of their quality and their ability to reproduce images and data seamlessly. They are also easy to ingest, certainly far easier than reading a book or brochure.

DVD duplication tends to be a far simpler process than replication. This is because the process of replication involves a complicated set-up which entails making a glass master of the original DVD. From this a set of stampers are then produced and moulds created. These are then treated to a process of high-injection moulding. As you can imagine this takes time and there are reasonably big margins for error. Not so with duplication techniques.

When it comes to the difference between DVDs and CDs, the former can be far more complicated in terms of the type and amount of data they can store. For instance, a DVD could come with a menu, chapter breaks, sub-titles and audio tracks. These make it a far more desirable product which in turn means the company can justify extending the cost to the customer in terms of a higher retail price. This ability to add lends itself to more creativity on the part of the author (or company who has ordered the DVD in the first place).

The process of duplication also tends to be far more inexpensive that replication. It is also completed in a far speedier fashion (thanks to the lack of a glass master and accompanying stampers) and tends to meet deadlines far sooner than the rather more complicated replication process.

Of course, like most things in life, you only get what you pay for and if quality is your bag then really replication rather than duplication is the route to go down. The essential thing is to know your customer – would they pay more for replication as opposed to duplication?
