Disc Makers Touts CD is Alive and Well
Pennsauken, NJ - Nov 08, 2012 - Independent CD and DVD manufacturer Disc Makers reports that in October it broke two of its all-time disc replication records, demonstrating that physical media like the CD is not yet dead. In October 2012, Disc Makers replicated 4,380,296 CDs, an increase of more than 600,000 units from October 2011. This figure outpaces Disc Makers' prior all-time monthly CD and DVD replication record of 4,013,000 CDs, which had held since 2008.
Disc Makers says the numbers indicate that independent artists may be feeling the positive effects of economic recovery, and that the music industry has settled into a more comfortable balance between the demand for physical media and growing digital music technologies.
Disc Makers also set a new all-time record for DVD production at 1,113,508 units, suggesting similar trends for businesses that create video media as part of their marketing or product offerings.
