Electronic Media Creation and Duplication
We offer a comprehensive media creation and duplication service for both business and personal applications. Our new service includes the creation and duplication of M-Disc media.
We can provide these services remotely if you upload your data to Google Drive or Dropbox. We can then convert the data in the format you require, burn the data to disk, and create duplicates as required. We will then mail the completed disks to you on completion. We require at least 2 working days to complete an order, but this also depends on the number of media disks you require. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Typical electronic storage media life span
Data stored on various forms of electronic storage devices have a limited life span. However, if you are serious about the integrity and life span of your important data, we recommend M-Disc. No other form of electronic media storage compares to it.
|Digital Media Type||Typical life span|
|CD||3 - 7 years|
|DVD||3 - 7 years|
|Hard Disk Drive||5 - 10 years|
|Memory Drive||7 - 10 years|
|Tape Drive||Less than 20 years|
|M-Disc||1000 years or more|
M-Disc (Millenial Disc)
M-DISC (Millennial Disc) is a write once optical disc technology available in DVD and Blu-ray forms. M-DISC’s design is intended to provide greater archival media longevity.
Unlike traditional disc formats, these Blu-ray M-Discs have an expected mean lifetime of 1,332 years. They can be written to and read by most current Blu-ray and conventional drives. A stress test of the media was performed by the United States Department of Defense, proving at the very least that M-Disc DVDs and Blu-rays are more durable than conventional DVDs and Blu-ray.
Conventional DVD-R and BD-R LTH (Low To High) use recording layers of organic dye and separate reflective layers. Standard (HTL) BD-R and BD-R/DL typically use inorganic data layers, but continue using a reflective layer. M-DISC uses a single inorganic recording layer, which is substantially inert to oxygen, but requires a higher-powered laser. M-DISC does not require the reflective layer. Thus, both the M-DISC and inorganic BD-R physically alter the recording layer, burning a permanent hole in the material. Besides physical damage, failure of the reflective layer, followed closely by degradation of the data layer, are the primary failure modes of all optically recordable disks.
When M-Disc media is created, the data is permanently etched onto the M-Disc media. The data layer is a “glassy carbon” and the material is substantially inert to oxidation, and with a melting point between 200° and 1000 °CM-Disc applications
M-Disc is great for protecting important business or personal data such as:
- Important Business and Personal Correspondence
- Items that require long term storage for Data Protection purposes
- Items that require long terms storage for Legal Purposes
- Personal memorabilia to pass on to future generations
