Almost everybody knows that the field of information technology is an area of human endeavor that is subject to fast and radical innovations. Very few people could remember using floppy disks to store data because floppy disks have been replaced with flash drives. In the same manner, copying DVDs have advanced beyond the stage of duplication into a process of CD and DVD replication.
While many people that are outsiders to the field of information technology always use the term duplication and replication interchangeably, these are two related but different things entirely. The major difference lies in the quality that can be obtained.
The quality of the copies obtained from the replication process is quite different from the quality obtainable from the duplication process. The quality obtained from the duplication process usually becomes diminished with an increment in the number of copies being made. This is just like making a photocopy of a document and using the copy to make more copies; this usually leads to blurred copies.
On the other hand, a replicate will have the same quality that can be found in the original copy. To explain the process in less technical terms, it involves a premastering process in order to obtain a glass image of the original copy. The glass image will then be stamped on the copies to be made so that they are the exact replicate of the original. More so, it ensures that there is uniformity in the quality of all the copies.
Another point that you have to consider is that different companies will charge you different amount of money to do the replicates for you. For example, some companies only make replicates on flex DVDs so that your copies can be long-lasting and durable because the disk is flexible and will not be easily damaged. Thus, the price that such a company will ask for will surely be more than the price that a company that uses the regular disks will charge you.
The number of copies that you want will also have an effect on how much you have to pay. For instance, you may be eligible for a discount when you want a certain number of copies from some companies, while others may offer you free shipping on a certain number. The delivery time may also affect how much you will have to pay. If you want the copying and shipping of your goods to be expedited you should also expect to pay much money.
However, one thing that remains certain is that, you will be pleasantly surprised with the quality that you will find your copies once they arrive from the CD and DVD replication company. In fact, it needs no mentioning that the results will beat what you can find in duplicates. Nevertheless, in order for you to receive the best service, it is important that you give your order to a reputable company.
