By Angela Sanders Friday, December 20, 2013, 05:35 AM EST
DVD duplicators have come down significantly in price over the last few years, thanks to the popularity of new formats such as Blu-Ray and services such as iTunes and Google Play. That doesn’t mean, however, that DVDs have had their day. The format is still popular with consumers and businesses alike. There are a plethora of stand alone players and almost every new laptop or desktop PC sold on the market has a DVD playing capability. Blank DVDs are relatively inexpensive to buy, too, making a DVD duplicator a great purchase. In this article, we will look at the top five uses for a DVD duplicator; helping to ensure you get the most out of it.
1) Making Copies of Home Movies for Friends and/or Family
Almost everyone in your family will have experienced participating in events at school, major events such as weddings and anniversaries, and perhaps even graduating from university. Parents and relatives often like to record these for posterity and homes everywhere will have old tapes stored in the attic or under the stairs. Perhaps your parents converted them to DVDs?
If you have a large number of friends and relatives that you would like to share your home movies with, a DVD duplicator is a worthwhile investment. DVDs are cheap and easy to post, which is especially useful if you need to send them abroad.
2) Bands and other performers
If you are a musician, comedian or artist who often performs live, selling DVDs is a great way to support yourself. A DVD duplicator is a useful tool to make DVDs to sell to your fans. Even if you are a member of an amateur choir, for example, this can be an inexpensive way to raise funds for tours and other expenses. You can even give them away as Christmas gifts.
3) Backing up your DVD collection
Movie lovers often accumulate hundreds of DVDs. These can be expensive and time consuming to replace if you are burgled or experience a fire. If you have limited editions or hard to find foreign films, it may be extremely difficult to find another copy. A DVD duplicator is an invaluable tool that can help back up your collection. You could make copies and store them in a safe location elsewhere, giving you peace of mind.
4) Starting a Business
DVD duplicators can be extremely useful when starting a business. Perhaps you are an amateur photographer who wants to make money from your collection of wildlife photographs? Why not sell DVDs of your collection? If you have an interest in local history and have accumulated recordings with notable residents and experts, you could sell DVDs. There are numerous possibilities.
5) Backing up data and programs
Finally, a DVD duplicator can be a good way to help back up your data and programs. You could make copies of your PC’s operating system should anything go wrong. If you have valuable programs, making copies can save you money if you lose or damage your computer. Software can be expensive to replace.
A DVD duplicator is a useful machine to make copies of home movies, performances and to help start a business. Why not think about investing in one today?
