CD’s are a piece of technology which are today taken for granted. For some they are part of their every day life, as are the items used to play the CD’s. For those needing to present information via CD to many people, then CD duplication is the ideal solution. This can be carried out quickly, effectively and cheaply.
Lets travel back……
Should we delve into the history of the CD, we will learn that Sony and Philips fought a stressful battle against time in order to be the first to introduce the new technology with the hope of replacing vinyl and cassettes. The battle actually goes back as far as 1957 when experiments began. As the years went on, Sony’s strengths were Philips weaknesses and vice versa so they eventually opted to work in partnership to get the CD off the ground. By 1980, the efforts of the pair paid off as they introduced the ‘Red Book’ holding specifications of the CD.
With the CD in full swing, the partnership dissolved and each company went their seperate way in order to create a machine which could play the CD’s. October 1st 1982, Philips enjoyed their developmental victory in beating Sony by just one month and intruced the CDP-101 Compact Disk Player. Sony however did make a comeback a few years later by offering the first portable CD player.
From this great invention, people have been allowed to transport information quickly and effectively and here at Direct CD’s we are proud to be a part this, offering our customers a professional and experienced CD duplication service.
