Production

Creating and manufacturing copies of professional media products

ATD creates discs (CD/DVD/BluRay) – duplication and replication, plus USBs  – for consumer and commercial requirements.

 

Our production services also includes mastering, ripping, printing, packaging, and cassette duplication.

 

A brief video introduction to some of our production services:

CD/DVD/BluRay

Disc Manufacturing

ATD delivers quick turnaround at the lowest price available in Australia. Fast and efficient production without compromise on quality.

Duplication

For orders of 1 to 500 discs, ATD makes high quality copies of your CD, DVD, Dual Layer, Blu-ray or USB using state-of-the art high quality duplication equipment.

For orders of 25 to 500 discs, ATD makes high quality copies of the DVD, CD, EcoDisc, Blu-ray and USB using state-of-the art duplication equipment.

With 20 modern and high-end duplication stations dedicated to handle any urgent project on short notice.

In order to avoid data errors and corrupted discs, each and every disc copy is double checked against the master using exclusive, specialised, stand alone equipment.

The approved discs are then printed as applicable – either with Thermal Print Technology or professional quality 4800 DPI Inkjet (with the highest printing resolution available in a market).

Duplication

Replication

Replication

Replication is normally more cost effective and practical for large quantities, typically 500 discs or more – subject to your production schedule requirements.

Larger production runs of over 500 discs require ATD’s replication services in order to produce them efficiently and cost effectively.

First a glass master is made from the original disc. The disc data is then stamped into the plastic disc with a metal die and the top of the disc is printed with an offset press.

The production process is slightly longer then duplication, but the cost savings are quite considerable. Lead time 10-15 days.

For details about how our discs are created:

Disc Coating

For a professional finish the printed and tested copies of the discs can be varnished with a UV coating. This popular extra service adds a high-gloss sheen that makes discs look more professional.

ATD is one of the few in Australia who use a unique varnishing process to protect your disc.
Many other companies claim they use a similar process, but none compare to our high gloss finish. Not only is it about the look of the disc – this process ensures the disc is completely waterproof and protected from fingerprints and scratches.

Disc Coating

USB

ATD can supply blank or duplicated promotional USBs – printed with your logo/design.

The USB design is limited to your imagination: Choose the style, capacity (500Mb-64Gb), artwork design for printing if required, and quantity.

Packaging

For a professional look, the packaging for your discs and USB devices we create can all be designed, developed, and processed in-house at ATD.

The right packaging solution can enhance the professional image, and lifespan of your media items.

Cassette duplication

ATD started in 1981, with REAL TIME audio cassette manufacturing – the first such commercial facility to be established in Australia.

ATD lead the field with the highest quality cassettes recorded at normal running speed on a large bank of hi-end Nakamichi cassette decks.

We provided real time audio cassette duplication on premium grade Chrome cassettes and hi-Speed duplication on Promaster or HE grade cassettes. We also offered printing onto the cassette bodies as well as printing cassette covers.

As new technology has moved us out of the tape industry, we are limited with what tape services we can provide and what is still available – but do do still offer real time cassette duplication and welcome your enquiry regarding this retro format !
