CD Duplication and Replication each have their pros and cons
To put it simply, duplication involves burning each CD-R or DVD-R one at a time and replication refers to the procedure where CDs or DVDs are manufactured by the injection moulding of raw poly carbonate as our sister company GM&P. The data on replicated discs is “stamped on” at the time of moulding and not burnt on as is during duplication.
During duplication, recordable discs (similar to the ones you may burn on a home PC) are first printed using one of a number of print methods such as Litho, Screen or Digital. These pre-printed CD-R or DVD-R blanks are then duplicated or burnt one at a time on either automated duplicators or towers containing as many as 11 burners and one reader. Despite modern burners and media claiming speeds of in excess of 40X for CDR and 16X for DVD it is more common for professional duplicating companies such as our selves to limit the write speed to 16X for CDR and 8X for DVDR. This helps create a more reliable copy and reduces wastage during the duplication process.
