CD Manufacturing Companies

There are many CD manufacturing companies based in the UK who offer replication or pressing of discs. Replication is usually referred to as manufacturing because the discs are produced from raw materials. During this manufacture the discs are pressed with your data, audio or video pre-embedded into the CD or DVD.

On the other hand CD duplication is usually considered a copying or burning process rather than manufacture. This is because the CD-R or DVD-R used in the duplication process has already been manufactured. The duplication involves burning the digital information to these pre-manufactured recordable discs. This process is often used when up to 500 copies of a CD or DVD are required.

For larger quantities of CD music albums or DVD movies the replication or disc manufacturing process is the method used. On these quantities of 500 and above it is far more cost effective to produce a glass master and stamper, then to press the discs. All large manufacturers of CD and DVD use this replication process to produce retail quality entertainment releases.

Whether you choose the duplication or replication process for your discs the quality of the embedded data is exactly the same. The only difference is that potentially a replicated or manufactured disc will have a longer life expectancy than a burnt or duplicated disc.
