Should I use CD duplication or DVD duplication for data presentations?

A popular question asked by potential customers is should I use CD duplication or DVD duplication for data presentations? Well the answer to this is either, it just depends on the size of your files. CD-R or DVD-R can be used for data duplication the only difference being the capacity each format. A CD will hold up to 700 megabytes of data compared to a DVD that will hold up to 4.7 gigabytes of data.

In comparison a DVD can hold as much data as almost 7 CD’s. 4,7 gigabytes is equivalent to 4700 megabytes of data. 4700 Mb gives an easier to understand comparison to the 700 Mb of CD. If your presentation contains large files such as high resolution photos or artwork then 700 Mb capacity can very quickly be filled. For these larger high resolution files DVD duplication is usually going to be required over CD duplication.

Even though a DVD can hold nearly the same information as 7 CDs the great advantage is that DVD does not cost 7 times the price of CD. In general a fully duplicated and printed DVD only costs around 10 pence more than a duplicated and printed CD. Therefore if you are ever in doubt over the large size of your presentation the best option may always be DVD duplication.

Whether you opt for CD or DVD duplication the quality of the disc and error rate is very similar. DVD does not give any better quality, just increased capacity. Also the print quality of each format is going to be identical. With duplicated discs always look for a company that using a colour thermal print method rather than inkjet print.
