Get Small Quantities of Blu-ray duplicates simply and easily
Blu-ray duplication is often thought to be very hard or even impossible. Blu-ray duplication is not widely popular and the format is not yet the major player in the home media market. That said, Blu-ray is at the high end and in the realm of early adapters who are normally first to go for duplication technologies as was evidenced in the adoption patterns of the CD and standard DVD fomrat.
While Blu-ray duplication isn't as simple as duplicating a standard DVD, it is by no means impossible and it can be done. The barrier to blu-ray duplication for most is the fact that Blu-ray duplication requires the use of Advanced Access Content System (AACS). AACS is the technology devised by the Blu-ray standards body that is intended to prevent the illegal duplication of Blu-ray disks. When manufacturers duplicate large quantities of original content on Blu-ray, they are required to license the AACS encoding technology and pay royalties associated with its use.
Given the high costs per disk when paying for AACS, producing smaller quantities of content via Blu-ray duplication can be cost prohibitive. However, when producing small quantities of 100 or less, the royalties and license costs are covered in the price of the blank Blu-ray disks this eliminating the prohibitive cost factors. Therefore, if you need a small quantity batch of Blu-ray disks (100 or less), our Blu-ray duplication process can quickly and easily produce the media you need without having to pay licensing or royalty payments for AACS technology.
