The DVD Duplication Procedure
DVD duplication is carried out using DVD-Rs (DVD recordables) which are sourced as blank DVDs with a purple die colouring the recordable side of the disc. At Alpha Duplication we have a fully automated duplication suite where we can duplicate many thousands of DVDs very quickly.
The suite houses state of the art duplication towers which are built using optical drives similar to the units found in many desktop PCs. These drives can be linked to a master duplication unit which contains the master DVD which is to be copied onto the blank discs.
Loading and unloading of the DVDs is performed by mechanical robot arms which move the blank DVDs from a stack on a spindle to the optical drive trays. The discs are lifted using precision suction pads which gently but securely transport the DVDs eliminating the possibility of damage to the discs which will most likely have been printed beforehand.
A laser in the optical drive burns tiny “pits” into the dyed recordable layer of the DVD-Rs as the master information is transferred onto them. These “pits” are then interpreted by the DVD reading drive in a PC, laptop or stand-alone player, as movie or data files.
