Media-Tech Conference Scheduled for 2011
If you’re involved in the optical storage industry, listen up! The date for next year’s Media-Tech Conference has just been announced! Join Media-Tech along with other industry professionals for a 3-day event at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada from March 23rd to 25th, 2011.
Media-Tech is a global association of disc production companies. The association’s members are involved with every type of storage media including magnetic, optical, and other formats. Group members include content producers and licensers, designers, manufacturers, developers, and other related businesses.
The Conference in Las Vegas will feature three days of exhibits and presentations all about optical storage media. The focus of this year’s show is Blu-ray replication and duplication – the two methods for producing optical discs. Replication is the process in which tiny pellets of polycarbonate plastic are molded into the shape of a disc. The discs are then “stamped” with the information during the manufacturing process. This is how store-bought movies and video games are produced.
The other way to manufacture CD, DVD, and Blu-ray discs is duplication. These discs are “burned” in a recording drive, such as in a personal computer, disc duplication tower, or automated CD/DVD publisher. This process is ideal for low-quantity production of discs because of its low cost and fast turn times.
Other topics at the show include best practices for manufacturing and new business opportunities for the optical disc industry. Trade shows are a great way to network with other companies in your industry, which often leads to strategic alliances and partnerships that can be beneficial for both parties.
With so many new advances in the optical disc world including Blu-ray, BD-XL, and BD-3D, there are plenty of things for manufacturers and producers to talk about.
More details about the conference will be posted later this month on the Media-Tech website. Until then, you can check out CDROM2GO for great deals on DVD and CD duplication and replication services.
