Reviewing the Process of DVD Replication and Duplication

There are two options present before you, if you are looking for several copies of the data stored inside your master disc. These two processes are – replication and duplication.You can also get  information about replication and duplication via

There is a huge difference between both these processes in terms of modus operandi, results and also the orders that they can handle. In this process, we take a deeper look at both these processes used by CD/DVD manufacturers across the globe.


  • The task of CD/DVD replication involves copying the information from the master disc to several other discs using a highly technical process.
  • The main element of this process is the “glass master” that is further used to create Stomper mold.
  • This Stomper mold is used to stamp the information from the original source onto the injection-molded discs like DVDs and CDs.
  • Once the process is completed, they are left for drying and then sent for lacquering, metalizing and then, cataloging.

Pros of this process

  • One top benefit is that the cost per disc stays very low as compared to the process of duplication.
  • Therefore, it is the first choice of those copying large volumes of discs.
  • The cost stays low because data is copied just once, rather than duplicating it every time, new disc is created.
  • One more benefit is that in case, you are not using Re-Recordables; the result of replication would be the same as found in the master discs.
