The transformation in the music and movie industries as a result of CD duplication

The use of CD duplication and CD replication has helped transform the movie, music, software and gaming industries. The CD had a big impact on the music and movie industry. Previously, the music industry used to sell the music of artists by copying it onto vinyl and cassettes, before distributing them to customers. Likewise, movies were copied onto video tapes.

The change in the copying techniques
This method was very intricate and difficult. As a result these vinyl, cassettes or video tapes were heavily priced. The introduction of the CD and the DVD changed the whole scene. These CDs and DVDs could be duplicated and replicated very easily. This could also be done at a cheaper rate. Thus, buyers of CDs and DVDs could get them from music and movie production companies at a nominal price. The process of CD and DVD replication is fully automated. The process of duplication and replication works by the use of CD mastering. The process of CD mastering takes place by first creating a CD master. The CD master has all the information that is to be replicated onto other blank CDs and DVDs.

The process of CD mastering
A stamper is created from this CD master and then used to reproduce copies of the material on other CDs and DVDs. The CD or DVD may then be coated with a thin transparent layer that prevents it from getting damaged. Many music and movie industries outsource their CD and DVD duplication needs to replication companies. In this way, CDs and DVDs have revolutionised the music and movie industry.
