Replication is a CD manufacturing process where discs are moulded from melted polycarbonate plastic with the music or video content on it. It’s done in a controlled environment using injection moulding equipment to make the discs from raw materials.
CD replication involves capturing your master data (such as audio) and ‘pressing’ the discs during the manufacturing from a glass master. This creates a perfect version of your original master recording. The discs we engrave on to are also known as a CD-ROM (Read-Only Memory) discs (as opposed to CD-R which means CD-‘Readable’).
For orders of 1000 above, cd replication is the most economic method. While the initial cost of producing the glass master and formatting the machines are high, the subsequent process is cheaper and requires very little manual intervention.
