  • What is duplication?

    The content of your master is transferred to a hard drive. Then, the data residing on the hard drive is 'burned', meaning it is transferred bit for bit to a pre-manufactured write once DVD-R.

    What is a DVD?

    DVD (digital video disc) is 120 mm in diameter and 1.2 mm thick, the same size as CDs. The main function is to store standard definition video for feature films. DVD discs have a maximum resolution of 480p (NTSC, 720×480 pixels) or 576p (PAL) 720×576 pixels). Pre-recorded DVDs are mass-produced using molding machines that physically stamp data onto the DVD. Such discs are known as DVD-ROM, because data can only be read and not written or erased. Blank recordable DVD discs (DVD-R and DVD+R) can be recorded once using a DVD recorder and then function as a DVD-ROM.

    What is the storage capacity of a DVD?

    There are a number of different DVDs with various storage capacities:

  • DVD-5 - 4.7 Gigabytes capacity. It is single layer and single sided with up to 133 minutes of video.
  • DVD-9 - 8.54 Gigabytes capacity. It is dual layer and single sided with up to 240 minutes of video.
  • DVD-10 - 9.4 Gigabytes capacity. It is single layer and two sided. Conventional DVD printing is not an option for DVD-10s because both sides of the disc must be readable. This means only printing on the hub of the disc is available.
