DVD Replication and Printing Services - Storm media
DVD REPLICATION is the complete DVD disc manufacturing process whereby a DVD5 or DVD9 disc is moulded and the content is then stamped into the disc during the manufacturing process, once the disc have been moulded, they are then sent to the print department for printing.
The DVD manufacturing process can only begin once a glass master or DVD stamper is made, The glass master is the first process of dvd replication and is created using your original master disc that is supplied to us when the order is placed. Once the glass master is ready for production (This can take a couple of days) it is prepared and fitted into a specialised injection moulding disc replication machine which injects polycarbonate into a die and the disc is pressed out using the stamper that was created, this process creates microscopic ‘pits’ and ‘lands’ (the basic code for the information contained on your disc) of the discs final content. The disc then goes through a process whereby it is balanced, metalised with an aluminium based reflective surface before the second layer of polycarbonate is applied. Once the blank unprinted DVD discs are moulded, they are then sent to the print department for a glossy high quality UV print finish of your supplied artwork .
Storm media print our replicated DVDs using a five colour silk screen printer, an offset lithographic process or our more popular option which is a digital UV print, thus resulting in a very high quality, retail ready disc.
Storm media make sure to use only 100% pure polycarbonate for the production of our replicated DVD DISCs, as a result we are able to offer you the best possible quality at an affordable price.
