We are an industry leader in disc replication for corporate clients, music, marketing and software.
CD-ROMs are pre-recorded discs (produced through a manufacturing process) and can store up to 700 MB of data. SLI offers fast turnaround times, competitive prices and diverse options for optical media replication.
CD-ROM Replication Services Include:
• 2-3 Day Rush or 5 Day Standard Turn for bulk CD-ROM Replication (without packaging)
• Pre-press services like artwork proofs and films
• 1 - 5 Color Silk-screen or Offset printing on the surface of molded CDs.
• Custom packaging of the CDs into Jewel cases, Digipacks, cardboard mailers or sleeves with shrinkwrap or overwrap
SLI has a 3-step Quality Assurance procedure in place to ensure that the final CD-ROM product is a bit by bit replica of the original master CD supplied by the client. After the CD-ROMs are moulded and stamped with data, they are validated by the Dr. Schenk´s Analyzer machine which checks the physical properties of the disc to make sure that there are no scratches or uneven surfaces on the disc that would render it unreadable. Further, the CD-ROMs are also tested by the Koch Tester which digitally checks for any errors in the data replicated. Lastly, the CD-ROMs are tested by a software program to ensure the bit by bit replication of the data with reference to the client´s Master CD.
SLl archives glass stampers, artwork files and films for all its client for up to 2 years, so that re-orders can be executed seamlessly. With many years of CD-ROM, Audio CD and VCD replication experience SLI understands your needs and requirements for on time delivery, quality, and the best possible prices.

If you need something that differentiates you from everyone else, why not try a mini CD or DVD? It looks and plays like a standard disc, but it is only 3 inches in diameter and holds up to 180 MB (CD) & 1.4 GB (DVD). Small enough to slip into your pocket or an envelope, they´re a perfect choice for a product demo or promotional music tracks from an upcoming CD release. Mini discs are used to grab attention at trade shows, in direct mail campaigns, as brochure inserts, and sales call "leave behind" items.
Mini CD & DVD Replication Services include:
• Various packaging options, including the popular mini plastic sleeve or C-Shell
• Pre-press services like artwork proofs and films
• 1 - 5 Color printing on the surface.
From Blu-ray.com -- Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD), is the name of a next-generation optical disc format jointly developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), a group of the world's leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers (including Apple, Dell, Hitachi, HP, JVC, LG, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, TDK and Thomson).
The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data. The format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc. This extra capacity combined with the use of advanced video and audio codecs will offer consumers an unprecedented HD experience.
While current optical disc technologies such as DVD, DVDR, DVDRW, and DVD-RAM rely on a red laser to read and write data, the new format uses a blue-violet laser instead, hence the name Blu-ray. Despite the different type of lasers used, Blu-ray products can easily be made backwards compatible with CDs and DVDs through the use of a BD/DVD/CD compatible optical pickup unit. The benefit of using a blue-violet laser (405nm) is that it has a shorter wavelength than a red laser (650nm), which makes it possible to focus the laser spot with even greater precision. This allows data to be packed more tightly and stored in less space, so it's possible to fit more data on the disc even though it's the same size as a CD/DVD. This together with the change of numerical aperture to 0.85 is what enables Blu-ray Discs to hold 25GB/50GB. Recent development by Pioneer has pushed the storage capacity to 500GB on a single disc by using 20 layers.
DVDs (Digital Versatile Discs) deliver stunning video resolution and audio performance. They have revolutionary capacity, speed, quality, and versatility. DVD-ROMs have 4.7 GB (DVD-5), 8.5 GB (DVD-9) and 9.4 GB (DVD-10) of data storage capacity.
Full Featured Films, Documentaries, Corporate presentations, shareholder reports, or large databases with thousands of products and pictures are highly suited for DVD replication. DVD technology is moving at a rapid pace. SLI can help you make the transition from CD-ROM or even VHS to the DVD-ROM format.
