DVD duplication is probably something you’re already familiar with, though you may not have realized it. If you have ever burned data to DVD, put pictures on a DVD for a family member to enjoy, or added music to a CD for playback in your car or at work, then you’ve already utilized duplication technology. With DVD
duplication, you are simply taking data from a computer and making a copy of it on a DVD or perhaps a CD, or for more advanced computer setups, Blu-Ray disc.
Then there’s DVD replication. Companies like Summation Technology offer both duplication and replication, though there are key differences between the two. Duplication is a faster process, and thus most preferred for companies and individuals who need to produce a large number of discs for selling or distribution. Replication takes longer, but the discs offer better playback for audio and video files, and the discs themselves look more professional: replicated discs have a silver reflection to them, while duplicated CDs have a blue-green reflection, and DVDs have a purple reflection.
Which method of copying data is ideal for you? That depends on your needs. If an economic choice is best for you, then you’ll want to choose duplication, which is quick, easy, and budget-friendly.
