A Visit to a DVD Production Center

Sometimes my older son likes to find out How Stuff is Made, and he had a wonderful opportunity when we both had the chance to see the Little Pim DVDs being manufactured at our new replication and fulfillment center. We learned how the DVDs start as clear plastic discs and then a layer of silver - which contains all the content encoded - gets pressed onto the top of the clear disc with a hot press. About 1,000 DVDs pass through this system in a mere 10 minutes. It was pretty cool to see!
