What could be more embarrassing than giving a business presentation to a room packed full of people and your DVD does not work or is not compatible with the computer’s software? Or sending out DVDs as Christmas presents or birthday gifts to find out Grandma’s video of her granddaughter’s wedding fails to play?
Or you just get done playing a hard-earned gig with your band and hand out some DVDs of your band’s audio music, just to find out that video shows and the disc won’t play for a newly won fan?
You do not have to worry about those problems with DVDsite.
To Duplicate or Replicate?
At DVDsite, we focus in customer satisfaction and giving you the highest-quality product for the best cost possible. But first, it might help to learn about some terminology, to determine what is best for you or your company.
- Duplication and Replication differences
- Small vs. Large runs of DVDs.
- Quick turnaround time
- Which to use?
What is the difference between the two? Simply put, it is the bulk amount of DVDs, the manufacturing process of how the DVDs are made, and the time it takes to make them.
Duplication uses the same method large DVD manufacturing factories use to make a DVD; replication is similar to how you burn a DVD at home, on your computer. DVD replication actual creates a master disc from your data and manufactures a number of DVDs using that disk from the “ground up” - including plastic disc molds and lacquer finishing.
Small Runs And Large Batches
Duplication transfers your data to already existing recordable DVDs. It is usually done in small runs while replication is done in large batches. Duplication works well if you plan to give out small quantities of your DVDs as gifts or you have a small pool of business and marketing prospects. Thus, duplication is best to use if you want batches of DVDs running from 500 to 1,000 in number.
Duplication offers you a faster turn around time than replication – generally 2 to 3 business days. However, keep in mind small runs of duplication DVDS will cost more than large runs of replication DVDs. When time is of the essence or you want a small batch of DVDS – use duplication. If you plan on a large run of DVDs and want a more polished and professional look – go with replication. At DVDsite, we will work with you to determine which is best for you.
