DVD Duplication Systems
The DVD duplication process, informally referred to as disc "burning," uses a concentrated laser to heat a special layer of chemical dye on the DVD's recordable side. This heat literally creates burns in the disc's recordable surface, which can be read as data when the duplication is completed successfully.
Professionals often have high-volume DVD duplication needs, and the mass production of discs has direct applications in the entertainment, information storage and software industries. Outsourcing DVD duplication services can be very costly, so many professionals choose to set up in-house self-publishing systems that can handle tasks ranging from mass production to disc, label and insert printing.
Types of DVD Duplication Systems
DVD duplication systems for both professional and in-home applications come in several major variations, including:
- Tower systems
- Rack-mount systems
- Auto-loading systems
Each design comes with advantages and drawbacks. Tower systems, for example, tend to be the most affordable but also have a limited number of recorders, which limits the number of discs that can be created during any single session. Auto-loading systems, on the other hand, are able to finish many discs without the need for user supervision after the desired options have been selected, but tend to be costlier than simpler systems.
The system that's right for any specific individual or company depends on the user's needs and the intended application.
