Sonopress LLC has announced that it has increased DualDisc production lines in its Weaverville, NC facility in response to the popularity of the new DualDisc product.
Sonopress now has 12 operating lines, which increases its DualDisc
capacity to 175,000 discs per day.
A DualDisc is a branded product that is a standard DVD-5 on one side while the
opposite side contains music that can be played in nearly all CD players. Along
with specific packaging requirements, DualDisc will require that the same music
found on the CD player side must also be available on the DVD side. The music
on the DVD side can be as simple as standard LPCM or as rich as 5.1 DVD-Audio.
The audio on the CD player side must be less than 60 minutes 17 seconds
including any additional ROM data and buffers. In order to be considered a
DualDisc, some video content must be included.
