How Do Printable DVD Media Work?

A Digital Video Disc or DVD is a visual disc storage format that can be used to save data and videos. A Digital Video Disc has the same dimension as the compact disc, and the only difference is that a Digital Video Disc has more space to hold data, six times more data. There are different variants on how data can be stored on a DVD and these are DVD+R and DVD-R (can record data just once), DVD ROM (can be read but not written) and DVD+RW and DVD-RW (can both record data and remove data several times). In fact, you can even record audio files too by using DVD Audio. Compared with the compact disc, DVD Audio can hold more audio files and can definitely give you high quality sound. Every household has DVD media to play audio and video data. If you like burning photos, movies and the like, you need to know how printable DVD media work.

Many people like burning audio, photo and video types of data for different occasions such as business presentations, family gatherings, school presentations, vacation trips and more. To avoid any confusion on what DVD to use for a particular event or occasion, it is best to put a label on every DVD you burn. The best way to put a label on your DVD is by using printable DVD media. Printable DVD media go one better than those DVD-shaped stickers by allowing you to print images and text on the DVDs directly.

If you're planning to produce large quantities, printable DVD media works best with a special DVD printer, and one of the DVD printers you can use is the DVD server with 5 and more DVD drives. In that case, you would be able to produce more copies without swapping discs. Use the VCO inspector with DVD server to make sure burning will work out just right. When it's time for you to burn audio, photo or video data, just insert the printable DVD media in the center, and it will reproduce the page output including the text and picture.

Epson and Casio, two of the biggest names in the printing industry, offer special printers that print directly on the disc. No need to use paper and glue anymore. Inkjet is the most recent printer that uses thermal transfer equipment to dissolve miniscule beads of a waxy infused hauler from its ribbon on the disc's surface. Just plug the keyboard into your computer and let the printing begin. There are reasons why many people prefer printable DVD media to the traditional label, and two of these are the cost and safety.

You can write anything on your DVD using pens, markers or traditional labels, but pens and markers can definitely ruin the disc while the traditional label can definitely cause damage to your drive. Before buying printable DVD media, make sure to look at the star rating and see what printable DVD is most recommended by customers.
