The Duplication Process -How it works

Duplication is the process of “burning” data onto blank CD or DVD recordable discs using computer drives and specialized burning software. Information is extracted from the mastered disc or image and burned onto the recordable media with lasers found inside the drives. The data is then verified against the original master to ensure an exact copy has been reproduced and the machine either accepts or rejects the copied version during the finalization process. Once discs complete the burning process they move onto the printing line that is, if printing is required.
Contrary to popular belief, some fear that duplicated discs may not always work in some playback devices. While there are several variables that can determine playback compatibility issues, advancements in technology both with discs and players have left these problems few and far between. Optical media is moving at a very fast pace and continues to be a dominant medium for multimedia and digital content delivery. However, not all blank discs are created equal so it is good practice to use professional grade media when considering duplication. This way you don’t have to worry about playback compatibility issues when your discs are out in the field. Coda, Inc. uses industry leading CD/DVD media (Taiyo Yuden/JVC) which is the proprietary brand recommended for commercial duplication and professional use.
