What is DVD Production?
 
Most often interchanged with the term "DVD pressing", "DVD production" describes the act of physically creating pre-coded digital video discs from raw components.
 
The process itself follows years of CD production techniques that have made a science out of the production of DVDs:
 
Using only the physical nature of the disc, data from a "source" disc is transferred to a glass "master"
The master is then used as a mould to create the metal "stamper"
The stamper is then loaded onto the moulders, which, when enabled, "stamp" the new DVDs out of plastic
The new discs are then cleaned, cut and coated with a molten alumium - which gives them their reflective aesthetic
A protective laquer is added and hardened to the disc via ultra-violet light
Finally, the disc is silk screened for protection and printed on for distribution
Along with each step in the DVD production process, an engineer monitors the status of the DVDs - ensuring that the discs remain of high quality and that no errors occur. Due to this, the setup and cost of such a production is more expensive than simple "cd duplication" - in which the data is simply "burnt" from the source disc to a new, consumable disc - but the chance of error is so far decreased that the value is definitely inherent.
