In addition to duplication, PDS also offers replication as
another method to produce large volumes of CDs and
DVDs. It is the most cost effective method of production
though not the quickest. If cost is your main concern you
concern you should choose duplication in most cases.
Replicated discs are manufactured with the data embedded
in the mold as the discs are pressed. Duplication applies
the data to the discs post-manufacturing by using a laser to
etch the data in an organic dye layer on the bottom surface
of the disc. There is no difference between the two as far
as playback quality is concerned. There are some older
players still in the market that were not designed to play a
recorded disc. But those are being phased out as time
goes by and will be less and less of a concern going forward.
