Disc Replication For Media Companies.

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.
