Inside Sony DADC: The Birth of a Blu-ray Disc

Posted July 29, 2009 01:45 PM by Josh Dreuth

Blu-ray DiscAustralian news website news.com.au recently visited one of the Sony DADC factories that produces Blu-ray discs and got a behind-the-scenes look at the production of our favorite high definition media. Sony was gracious enough to allow them to take some photos, and they are now sharing their experience with the world.

On a slightly parallel comment:

Strange that Sony DADC in Manaus, Brazil, is pressing Blu-Ray discs, but they are hard to find at street stores and on-line vendors are selling most titles at approximately 48 US dollars or more. No wonder the format is still to catch on in this country!

I want a "How It's Made" marathon of just tech stuff like this. That show is like porn for technology geeks. Motherboards and microchips have pretty interesting manufacturing processes too.

Bet the HD factory was careless about dust :P

I woulda loved to see a video. where it spins around. Do one of those Discovery channel things like How it's made or whatever they call it now.

Wish they had provided some captions describing what was being done in each image. Still, a very cool look behind those closed doors.

This was very interesting. I wish it would have gone over the Blu-ray laser and how many nanometers it is as well as what Sony has in plans to make the laser even smaller to pack in more data.

Wait... The factory can't even produce 50,000 BDs per day? With new releases selling millions of copies in the first week, that's a few MONTHS just to press the discs, never mind the production time for authoring the discs, etc.

And that's if they're only making one title at a time.

How in the world do we have so many BDs in the world right now? I assume this is Sony's smallest plant or something?

Kinda puts into perspective why it's taking so long for catalog titles to flood into the market...
