CD & DVD Replication Explained
Audio CD Replication: All Replicated CD & DVD projects (500 CDs and above) are pressed in one of our ISO-9002 plants. This process of "stamping" your data into an injection molded CD or DVD.
We cut a glass master in a Class 100 clean room or self enclosed LBR and mastering system. CD molding machines are specifically designed, high temperature, polycarbonate injection molders. They have an average throughput of 550-900 discs per hour, per molding line.
These discs are like the audio discs or DVD movies you buy at major retailer like Best Buy. These Replicated CDs are silver bottomed. The silver look is because of the aluminum that is used to reflect the laser that is used when you play your CD.
The process is less expensive than Duplication because your data is pressed into the construction of the CD. It does not have to be burned onto the disc.
