Recycling CD’s & DVD’s: 26th Nov. 2019

Tuesday, November 26th, 2019

We are always on the look out for ways to recycle CD’s & DVD’s because no matter how hard we try we do get discs that are unusable; they sometimes get spoilt in the print process or rejected from the burners if there is an error.

With Christmas on the horizon I saw a great way to make some unique decorations.

Get a polystyrene ball, the kind you can buy in craft shops.

Cut up a CD or DVD irregular or regular shaped pieces, and glue them onto to polystyrene…bit like a disco ball :)…add a ribbon or string for hanging it!

Support Musicians….. 11th Oct 2019

Friday, October 11th, 2019

In the growing age of Streaming Music & TV services  by companies like Spotify, Amazon, Netflix & YouTube we have seen very little change in the purchase of Hard Copy CD’s ,DVD’s & Blu-Rays here at Duplication Centre.

 

At a concert in London last year we chatted to the members of Accousic Alchemy after their set at Pizza Express Dean Street.

Did you know how little the artists make when you download or listen to them via streaming…its appauling…..next to nothing!!…so we bought one of their cds and they signed it for us …that’s the way to show your appreciation to musicians!!

We encourage you to still do the same….build up your collection in hard copy as well as digital download…..buy a hard copy at a festival or gig or music shop and lets really support musicians!

Jargon Buster Part 3 – Audio & Video Files: 12th August 2019

Monday, August 12th, 2019

This is the third and final article by Mark Smith our Director of Technology here at Duplication Centre; helping you to understand some of the terminology and abbreviations used in the industry.

Audio Files:

Unlike the disc image formats above, these are just individual audio files used by computers. They require ‘Authoring’ to a disc. Authoring a CD means taking the audio (in any of the formats) and writing it into a format and structure a simple CD player can understand and play

WAV

These are high quality audio files, very similar to standard CD-Audio. This is a very common format used in recording studios .

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAV

AIFF

AIFF is practically identical to WAV, but this format was developed by Apple in the late 80’s. Another very common format in recording studios.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_Interchange_File_Format

MP3

This is a digital music format created for sending audio over the internet. The great attraction of the MP3 format is its ability to compress files, allowing them to use much less space. Technically lower quality than the above audio formats, but not really in any noticeable way

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MP3

FLAC

The Free Lossless Audio Codec. This is a newer format which is able to compress audio to take up space just like an MP3, but does so in a ‘lossless’ way. This means the audio quality should not be degraded  in any way, but the file size will be noticeably smaller. A useful format that has only seen uptake in technical and audiophile community.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FLAC

Video Files:

This section may appear a bit short, but I had to draw the line somewhere.  There are a very large number of video formats that have existed over the years, far too many to discuss here. In practice there are 2 very common ones.

All video formats will require ‘Authoring’ to make a standard DVD-Video disc (OR a Blu-Ray-Video disc) to be player in a standard player.  Simply burning a video file on a disc will not necessarily allow it to play in a standard player.

MP4

A modern high quality video format widely used in consumer and professional markets.

MOV

Another modern high quality video format widely used in consumer and professional markets. Developed by Apple.
