What's the Difference Between Replication and Duplication?

CD, DVD and Blu-Ray replication is a term used within the industry which describes the manufacturing of discs using a Glass Master to replicate them. This is widely recognised as the best method of producing larger quantities of CDs and DVDs, in terms of both cost-efficiency and quality. Here at Media Matters, we usually replicate anything over a quantity of 1000 discs

Printing your disc artwork on to replicated CDs and DVDs as part of the production process, utilising litho offset or screen printing methods, produces the best results available - allowing us to achieve the high quality print that you would find in high street shops

Duplication refers to the process of producing smaller quantities of your discs, whereby the data is burned onto discs. Professional duplication companies will use systems with multiple writers which are usually automated, allowing for fairly large quantities of discs to produced in a relatively short period of time. Media Matters Technology's CD, DVD and Blu-Ray duplication services are ideally suited to customers requiring smaller quantities of CDs and DVDs in a shorter time frame, and we can usually turn jobs around in a matter of just a few days, or even the same day
