Rimage Goes Direct-to-Customer with New Website

duplicationHawksM08 July 2010

WebShop, the new online store from Rimage Corporation, makes the company’s disc publishing supplies available to customers. Traditionally, Rimage customers would have secured their CD and DVD printing and replication equipment from authorized third-party suppliers, but now these customers have a direct link to the products they have come to rely on.

The WebShop is available to U.S. customers at and to European customers at Rimage believes the new site will help strengthen and simplify their partner network and help ensure their customers get the most out of their investment.

“The WebShop provides our customers with an important option that helps them keep their operation running smoothly,” said Christopher Wells, vice president of marketing and strategy for Rimage Corporation. “They can shop direct from Rimage, or from one of our authorized partners.”

Rimage customers can find print ribbons, CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, print cartridges, and media kits on WebShop, but they can still get their Rimage products from their disc publishing partners.

Disc Duplication Company Takes Being Green to the Next Level

duplicationHawksM21 May 2010

Recycling programs have been in place in the United States since the 1970s. For the last 40 years Americans have continued to find additional outlets to recycle their electronics, including cell phones, computer batteries, and printer cartridges. And as the use of CDs gives way to MP3s, several companies, including Precision Disc Manufacturing Corp., are now providing CD and DVD recycling services.

Unwanted CDs and DVDs as well as their cases can be sent to Precision Disc Manufacturing, a British Columbia CD and DVD duplication company, to prevent discs from ending up in landfills.

Just pack your unwanted CDs and DVDs in a cardboard box marked “for recycling” and ship the box to or drop off the box at Precision Disc Manufacturing. You’ll be responsible for the cost of shipping, but you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your unwanted discs won’t go to complete waste. Precision Disc says there’s no problem with scoring or damaging the discs if you’re concerned about information security.

Disc cases must be sent in a separate box, and all inserts should be removed.

“We’ve been putting a strong emphasis on utilizing environmentally-friendly equipment, materials and processes for quite some time, said Precision Disc Manufacturing Vice President Bruce Durnie. “We don’t just talk-the-talk when it comes to being environmentally responsible so we’re always looking for new ways to enhance what we’ve already put in place and this DVD CD recycling program is a good example of our efforts to make a difference.”

The Difference: Duplication vs. Replication

duplicationHawksM09 March 2010

Today CDs can store up to about 700 MB of data while DVDs max out at around 4.7 GB, but media storage capacities are constantly trending upward, particularly with the rise in popularity overburn and dual-layer techniques.

Duplication and replication. The words may sound remarkable similar, but the differences between the two are important to point out. To make the most appropriate choice you want to make sure you know the difference when choosing the appropriate software and technology combo or professional organization for your next project.


Duplication is often also referred to as CD burning. Whereas a single copy involves transferring from data one CD or DVD to another, the term duplication is used when referring to a media copy job that involves more than just one copy being made. Duplication jobs of about 1,000 discs or less can often completed at home or in-house with the use of a dedicated computer (or computers) with multiple burners or with a professional CD DVD duplicator.

The technology used in duplication is called laser etching, which transfers the data from one disc to another – a portable, convenient, and economical form of data transfer.


Instead of making a copy of data, replication essentially makes a clone of the original data. In replication, a glass master is created from the original version of the CD or DVD and then a mold (or set of molds), sometimes referred to as stampers, is created from that glass master. The process of replication allows for every disc to be a first-generation replica. The stampers act as a blueprint; they are used with high-injection molding to make a plastic disc-like molded clone. The clone is covered with a thin layer of aluminum and sealed with a layer of laquer, which is hardened by ultraviolet light.

Because of its technical nature, replication is typically used for large-scale jobs of 1,000 or more (the larger the quantity, the lower the cost) and is usually completed by a disc replication company. Replication services offered by these companies often include printing and packaging services as well, and the quality of the replicated discs is often higher than duplicated discs. The difference in price can be substantial: a job of 300 discs may cost about $2 disc, whereas a job of 1,000 can drop to about $0.50 per disc. The bulk of the additional costs for replication come from the set up fees.
