DVD Replication And Packaging

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

DVD replication and packaging is a service offered by Testa-Rossa to fulfill customers requirements for DVD video manufacture. Our replication process involves taking a DDP fileset of the supplied physical master and then from this set of files a glass master is carefully created.

Once a glass master has been successfully created it is then used to manufacture metal stampers. Subsequently the final metal stamper is used on the production line to press the DVD discs. This method of pressing discs is why the factory is usually referred to as a pressing plant.

As the discs are created on the DVD replication lines they can then be automatically packed into the standard Amaray case style DVD packaging. Usually prior to the pressing stage, artwork for a DVD inlay will have been provided to the plants printers and litho printed inlays will have been produced and finished ready to add to the cases on the production line.

It is common that the automated packing of DVD disc and printed inlays into the case all happens on the same auto pack production line within the plant. Most production lines also have the capability to add booklets to the cases or even additional stickers such as the hologram stickers often seen on DVD releases. Finally the cellophane overwrap is applied over the DVD case before the final product is boxed for despatch.

Disc Replication For Media Companies.

Monday, October 17th, 2011

All media companies and business’s will require either the replication of CD or DVD discs at some point. Most media companies have the facilities to create masters on a CD-R or DVD-R but very few have in-house facilities to copy these masters by way of duplication or replication.

Most media companies will therefore seek the professional services of a disc duplicator, broker or pressing plant. If the number of copies is relatively low, less than 400 discs, then a local duplicator can usually be sourced. However if the amount of discs exceeds 400 then a replication broker or pressing plant is usually the way forward.

Companies requiring regular large volumes of disc replication will usually have a direct business relationship with a pressing plant. For companies that only require glass mastering and disc pressing a few times a year a broker is usually more preferable. CD and DVD brokers usually have trade accounts with many worldwide pressing plants enabling them to source the best prices and leadtimes for their customers.

Some pressing plants specialise more in CD than DVD or vice versa. This results in quite a large variation in pricing and turnaround times. The broker can use their knowledge of the business to act on behalf of its media company customer to obtain the best possible manufacturing deals. In most cases this actually results in lower costs to the customer than dealing direct with a pressing plant.

DVD Replication Of Video And Film

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

These days the most popular form of video distribution involves the process of DVD replication. The DVD or Digital Versatile Disc has been around for over 15 years now and has become the biggest selling format for video and film releases. The DVD format has killed off the old VHS video tape with virtually no commercial film releases now being available on VHS.

The replication of video or film firstly relies on the production of an error free DVD-R master. Exabyte masters can still be accepted by some plants but the predominate master format is now DVD-R. The master disc is used to create a special set of files known as a DDP fileset. The DDP fileset is then used to create a DVD glass master using lasers and sputtering. This glass master can then be used to create positive and negatives and a final stamper used to press the discs.

Pressing the DVD discs involves the stampers and a “sandwich” of polycarbonate with a thin layer of nickel or silver. The video information is pressed into one layer of the polycarbonate by a series of pits, each pit relates to a bit of digital data. The layer of silver is to reflect the lasers of DVD players, basically the laser shines through the polycarbonate and reflects off the silver layer and back into the DVD player. Digital data is “read” by the laser and values dependant on the depth of the pit pressed into the disc.

DVD replication produces a very reliable and durable disc, unlike the old VHS format it is very hard to damage a disc or for it to become jammed up inside the player. I’m sure we have all experienced our VHS player chewing up the tape of our favourite film! Fortunately with the advent of DVD this is one issue that has been overcome.

Getting professional quality DVDs at reasonable rates

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

Anyone trying to establish a name in the entertainment industry would obviously need to show production houses a sample of their work before they are signed up. This is usually required when it comes to film makers and musicians. While musicians may have the option of live performances, film makers do not. So it is necessary for film makers to have a good quality copy of their work.

Professionally made DVDs can work wonders

You are probably wondering how amateur film makers could provide professional quality DVDs if they did not have the experience or equipment. While the experience can gradually grow, equipment may be hard to buy because the machines and technology can be quite expensive. For this reason, amateur film makers turn to DVD replication companies.

The services offered by DVD replication companies allow editing of DVDs so that their quality is up to the mark. In addition to this, these DVD replication companies can even edit the sound of DVDs and take out unnecessary background sounds that might affect the quality of the content. This ensures that the DVD is as good as any professionally made DVD.

However, film makers do not have to worry about paying high professional prices for these services. DVD replication companies offer these services at affordable rates so that their customers can benefit from them. They also have very low prices when it comes to replicating DVDs, which is required as film makers may have to provide several companies with their work. DVD replication companies even package bulk DVD orders to complete the professional look.

DVD replication is ideal for video and media companies

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

Data on a DVD can be pressed at much higher density on both the layers compared to a CD. Thus, DVDs have a considerably higher storage capacity. DVD replication and DVD duplication are two different processes used for writing the data on DVDs. Though the outcome of both DVD duplication and replication is same, they make use of different procedures.

While DVD duplication is a process of copying data onto a new DVD, replication is a slightly more complicated process. In the replication process, a clone of the master copy is created instead of copying it onto a new disc. At the time of manufacturing period, data is usually formatted into a new disc. The process of DVD replication is generally conducted by experienced technicians in special replication firms. Thus, every replicated DVD is uniquely processed so as to provide you with the best results.

Screen printing and offset printing are basically two types of printing processes used for DVD replication. Using this feature, different information can be printed on the replicated DVDs making them more unique. The DVD replication procedure is ideal for media and video companies when they need to create several copies of their data. Using the DVD replication process, these companies can easily create numerous copies of their data and make them available at comparatively lower price.

Many companies that have used DVDs to market their products and services have realised just how beneficial DVDs are when it comes to promoting products.
