Blu Ray Duplication is the standard in which smaller quantities of Blu Ray discs are usually manufactured. The supplied contents are loaded into burners. Your information is digitally extracted from your master source (usually a master Blu Ray disc) and transferred to the blank discs using a laser. Your information is typically verified and the copy then accepted or rejected. With the advent, popularity, and reduced cost of writable media, it is now possible to offer the same level of services to customers that need smaller quantity orders as well as customers which need larger quantities.
Are Duplicated Blu Ray Discs less reliable to Replicated Blu Ray? It may surprise you to find out that in most cases the answer to this question is FALSE. Today's writable media are manufactured under much stricter guidelines. It is true that there are still many inferior brands of discs saturating the market place, - but by choosing a reputable Blu Ray duplication company which uses only professional equipment and high quality media, you should be assured of receiving a quality product.
Perhaps the biggest breakthrough that Blu-Ray delivers is the ability to playback 1920x1080 progressive (full HD). DVD was inherently limited by the laser technology used to read the media. The red and infrared laser diode was incapable of accessing data from the media at a constant, fast enough rate to cater for the massive data required for 1080p playback and was limited to playback of standard definition footage (720x576). It wasn't until the development of the blue laser used in Blu-Ray that the extra bandwidth was catered for and full HD video and pure audio (formats such as Dolby True HD and DTS-HD high resolution audio) became a reality for domestic users.
Blu Ray Duplication and Blu Ray replication both have their cost and quality advantages. Ultimately, it is the consumer/customer that will choose the best method of manufacture for their project.
With capacity of either a 25GB disc or a 50GB disc as opposed to 4.7 GB DVD or a 8.5 GB DVD the possibilities are endless as to what you can do with such a format. And with prices still going down it is becoming a reality for more and more users.
