M-disc, Write Once and Read Forever
- Keep your data over 1000
years with M-Disc.
- The Produplicator M-Disc Ready duplicators
can carve grooves onto the rock-like surface of M-Disc for date
security and longevity that has never existed before. Standard DVD s
can suffer a decrease in quality overtime, where M-Disc promises
superior quality for years to come.
You might feel like you’re making a “permanent” backup of your files when you copy them onto a DVD or backup to a computer hard-drive, but the truth is these devices suffer from natural decay and degradation.
Current DVD technology uses organic dyes and low laser power to make marks on the data layer of a standard recordable DVD. Over time, these marks become unreadable because organic dyes degrade when exposed to minimal levels of light, heat, and humidity. This means all the data you thought was safely stored could be lost because the discs you used have an average lifespan of only about 3 to 5 years! Why would you risk your data based on an average; hundreds of discs taken into account in that average were corrupt and unreadable after only a few months. With Millenniata, we don’t subject you to the possibility of losing your data. When we say write once and read forever, we mean it.
How does the M-DISC compare to other DVD sand optical discs?
Millenniata utilizes chemically stable and heat-resistant materials that are not used in any other DVD or optical disc! These materials cannot be overwritten, erased, or corrupted by natural processes. The normal laser energy employed to write DVDs or CDs cannot successfully write to the patented inorganic and synthetic materials used in the M-DISC
Data is stored on the M-DISC by physically altering the recording layer and creating permanent voids or holes. DVDs and other optical discs use organic dyes that break down over time, resulting in corrupt and unreadable data. These organic dyes are highly susceptible to temperature, humidity and even sunlight, starting to fade and decay the moment you record data.
Millenniata’s recording process utilizes higher temperatures and as much as 5 times more energy than any ordinary optical disc. This allows for permanent engraving on the M-DISC, what we refer to as pits. These pits are not affected by temperature, humidity and sunlight the same way dyes are, because the pits are permanent. This means when you burn data onto the M-DISC, it will last as long as you need it to.

How do we know?
The Naval Air Warfare Center at China Lake tested the M-DISC against the best conventional archival discs on the market produced by Mitsubishi, Verbatim, Taiyo Yuden, Delkin and MAM-A. The conditions were based on the 85°C/85% relative humidity industry test standard, supplemented with full-spectrum sunlight. The Navy’s goal was to simulate conditions at sea or in combat, which experience has shown to be a disc killer. The conclusion? The M-DISC suffered no data degradation at all while discs from Mitsubishi, Verbatim, Taiyo Yuden, Delkin and MAM-A failed after the stress period.
The Naval Air Warfare Center at China Lake has published these conclusions in the study, “Accelerated Life Cycle Comparison of Millenniata Archival DVD.” Conventional optical discs subjected to the same level of testing failed within 2 days while the M-DISC was not affected.
How can I access my data on an M-DISC?
Once written, the M-DISC can be read or played on any quality DVD drive that supports the common DVD+R/RW format. Most DVD drives that were manufactured after 2005 and almost all Blu-ray or BD drives support this format.

1 to 13 Blu-Ray SATA 12x Burners + Built-In 500GB HDD
Multiple BD/DVD/CD Tower Duplicators
The 13BR12X Blu-Ray Disc duplicator offers high-definition
optical disc burning quality suitable for anyone involved in disc duplication.
The user-friendly LCD interface provides a simple interface that burns Blu-Ray,
DVD, and CD blank discs at an optimal speed producing a maximum of 13 copies every burn cycle. Burning speeds are
adjustable and other standard menu features are available for advanced users.
Inside the copy tower itself, different Blu-Ray, DVD, and CD formats are
automatically detected to allow stable and secure buffer under run protected
burning. The professional quality and performance of this duplication equipment
ensures a fast, reliable solution for duplication runs whether burning be
performed at home, office, or studio.

load and copy support:
Improved "load and copy" transfers the data from the master disc to the internal
hard drive while simultaneously copying that data disc to disc on the first run. All
subsequent runs are copied through the built-in hard drive.
currently available Blu-Ray Disc and DVD media formats:
Can duplicate Blu-Ray Disc (BD), Single Layer DVD R/RW, and Double/Dual Layer DVD R formats.
common CD media formats:

BENEFITS OF A BUILT-IN HARD DRIVE
A hard drive in the duplicator decreases duplication time and increases the
stability of the duplicator. Once the DVD or CD disc image is stored in the hard
drive, the original source disc is no longer needed to perform duplication. Then
from the controller panel of the duplicator, functions such as writing,
deleting, and selecting the hard drive partition is done. If you have multiple
originals which need to be duplicated time after time, the hard drive option is
definitely recommended. The hard drive will be divided into smaller partitions
where each partition can hold one DVD or CD disc. The size of each partition
will depend on the type of the optical disc media.
This machine does not burn any
