CDs have become one of the most important mediums to store information on. They have been used increasingly by a large array of people. A CD is a medium of data storage that can store various formats of information. The most commonly stored information includes video files, music files, data files and other media formats.
Many production houses have begun to distribute their work on CDs as it provides for unmatched sound and video quality and at the same time allows them to store ample amount of information. CDs can be copied to other digital storage devices without the loss of quality. It is convenient to write and access information from one disk with the help of a CD writer.
CD replication has become a large industry other than CD manufacturing. Information stored on one CD can be copied to another with the help of a CD burner. A computer facilitates this function with ease. CD replication is different from the CD duplication process. The duplication of CDs may be done without the consent of the manufacturing company, however the CD replication process is done only with the permission of the manufacturer.
CDs are replicated with the help of replicating equipment that is fully automated. This equipment is a large capital expense and many CD replicating companies carry on the process in factories. To replicate CDs, a glass master is made by the replicating company or is provided by the customer, from which a stamper is made. This stamper is in turn used to make the CD foil. Once made it is covered with multiple layers of polycarbonate plastic and screened. The final process involves a strict quality check to scan for flaws and errors. The replicating process and printing of CDs is usually done simultaneously. Over the years, these two functions have been handled by the same company and resulted in fruitful and cost-effective solutions.
CD replication and printing are services that have been used by production hoses to release new materials. It proves to be an economical option for them without any compromise on quality.
