Purchasing Your Duplicator -Hardware:

  • Controller Card:

The Produplicator CD/DVD Duplicator is a high-speed, standalone duplicator that burns multiple CDs/DVDs within minutes while maintaining the quality of the original disc. The beauty of our Duplicator is that it is a complete standalone system and does not require a computer to operate. On top of that, each burn cycle only takes 3-4 minutes for CDs and 6-9 minutes for DVDs, allowing for more efficient use of your time and energy.

Utilizing the MagiCopy controller, this duplicator communicates smoothly between the different brands of burners that we offer. Aside from copying, the duplicator allows you to "Test" your disc before burning with a mock burn, ensuring that none of your blanks are bad. It also has a "Compare" function which compares the information of the copied discs to the information of the master disc and a "Verify" function which determines if the copied disc are readable. The duplicator supports an adjustable burn speed which controls the quality and time of each burn cycle. Another feature is the selectable source drive which permits you to move the reader drive to another drive if necessary. For example, if your reader drive begins to fail, you can select another drive like one of your burners to be your reader while that drive gets replaced.

A unique feature is its ability to save disc space according to the file size instead of partitioning the entire hard drive into 5 GB slots for or 1 GB slots. This allows you to save space on the hard drive and add more masters than other duplicators allow with similar hard drive space. It also allows the user to rename the hard drive partitions with up to 8 alphanumeric characters.

  • Buffer Memory:

One of the key reasons we are able to give a more affordable price to customers is because we do not include unnecessary equipment to our duplicators. Our duplicators do not need the 128 or 256 MB buffer memory that other companies boast. Yet, our duplicators still compete with the best when comparing speed, quality, and reliability of the copy process.

These are test results of our MagiCopy Controller against another controller with 128 MB buffer memory.

  • Test results may vary depending on the blank media quality and the DVD burner model

The buffer memory compensates for minor variances in the burning synchronization. Some drives will fall behind or burn further ahead than the other drives. This rift can cause the system to stall so that the other drives can catch up with one another.  However, if your duplicator initiates all drives at the same time and the drives burn at the same speed (which is controlled by the controller burn speed), large buffer memory becomes virtually useless. We understand that the drives almost never initiate together but there is a point when buffer memory size benefit plateaus. Utilizing only the necessary buffer memory for the duplicator, we save costs on production which in turn saves money for our customers.

  • Casing:

Aluminum cases are widely believed to be a superior cooler than steel cases. However, this is just a misconception. Numerous case testing shows that the fan configuration in the case and the air flow it creates regulates the temperature inside the case. Unless there is an outside source of light or heat close to the case, the duplicator components do not generate enough heat to hinder the copy process.

So what are the actual benefits of an aluminum case or a steel case? The question boils down to two things: durability and cost. The aluminum case is a lighter metal but less dense which makes it more malleable and susceptible to scratches. The steel case is sturdier because of its density but in turn, makes it less mobile because of the weight. When we consider the shipment of the duplicator also, the steel cases become a more logical choice for impact and shock absorption.

Then comes the question of price. As mentioned before with the buffer memory, we purchase only the necessary components for the duplicator to lower costs for our customer.
