Disc Replicators Survive by Adapting to the Digital Market

Posted Mon Jan 30, 2012 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Companies that once provided services for disc based media have made the transition to the digital age.

Replicators – the folks that turn data into a fully pressed Blu-ray disc – aren’t getting the business they once used to. While some are feeling the pinch, others are finding a great deal of success by adapting to the new environment and embracing digital needs.

Sony DADC was one of the early adapters. They formed a New Media Solutions group which works to create content, automate digital distribution and more. Cinram has similarly adapted and now creates bonus features and works in the gaming, mobile, digital and 3D fields.

Technicolor hasn’t been left in the dust – they’ve expanded to solutions that ensure that all your devices play nice when used together. They’ve been working on applications for laptops, tablets and even a 3D certification program.
