CD Duplication

CDR Duplication - Audio or Data

Duplication is carried out by recording your supplied master disc or data to an image file on a hard disc, which is then verified against the original. This image file is then recorded with a laser, or 'burnt', to the final copies which are again verified against the image file. Only the highest quality A-grade discs are used. Duplication is ideal for short runs (up to 1000 - 2000 units) where a quick turnaround is needed (48 hours is possible for most jobs) or for larger runs where there is not enough time for CD-Rom replication.

Blank Discs

Blank CDRs can be ordered pre-printed for your own recording.

Formats Available

12cm CDR (700MB)

Source Material

Audio recordings can be transferred from digital source material such as DAT, CD & MiniDisc, and analogue sources such as cassette. Audiofiles on disc in formats such as AIFF, QuickTime & WAV etc. are also acceptable as source material. The discs are PQ encoded, recorded in disc-at-once mode and are fully Red-Book compliant and therefore playable on any CD player. Only A-grade discs are used. Data can be supplied as a finished master CD in any format (ISO 9660, Mac HFS, Hybrid, CD Extra etc.) or email, ftp (please ask for details) or a number of CDs to be compiled into your chosen format. Using CD-RW or packet-written CDR discs as masters should be avoided.

Printing & Packaging

The standard option for CDR disc printing is thermal on-body printing in high-resolution full colour. The CDRs can be packed into clear plastic wallets or jewel cases (standard or slimline) with laser-printed paper-parts or supplied on spindle with no packaging. Alternative packaging options include paper wallets, card wallets, C-shells, DVD cases & trigger cases.
