Some facts about the art of CD replication

Nowadays CDs have become extremely popular for storing information like personal data, movies, pictures and music. This is because they are an efficient and economical medium for storing and transferring information. In fact, CDs have replaced the conventional cassettes and tapes massively and various video and music production houses prefer to sell their work on CDs.

CDs are cost effective and bulk production proves far cheaper for the seller. With data on CDs, retrieval of data in case of data loss is also easier. The process of CD replication is simply a technique that requires copying of information from an optical disc to a blank storage medium. CD replication as the name suggests is a concept of replicating huge quantities of discs containing data. While the process is simple, the equipment in use is expensive and automated.

CD replication requires the help of a master glass disc for initiating the process. The master disc contains the data and information for copying. The master disc makes stampers that allow the information to mould onto the CD. Several coatings of polycarbonate plastic protect the information for damage or abrasion. Once the replication process finishes, the discs undergo thorough checking for quality, after which they are ready for distribution.

The turn-around time for 50 to 100 CDs is about twenty-four hours. Larger quantities take up to a week to replicate. CD replication scores over the traditional methods due to overall efficiency.
