DVD Information

  1. European Union: The European Union (or E.U. as it is commonly referred to) is a group of countries in Europe that have joined together for the purpose of creating a unified economic and political environment. Formed in 1993, the E.U. currently consists of the following countries:

      The Czech Republic
      The Netherlands
      The United Kingdom

  2. Manufacturing Information: Since the formation of the E.U. in 1993, many of the DVDs that are made for the European market are listed as being made by the E.U., and are distributed in each of the E.U. states. As a result, many European-made DVDs no longer have specific country designations on them, and instead may say "Made in the EU," and / or "Printed in the EU" on them.

  3. Matrix Information: Matrix information is the letters and numbers printed on a DVD disc in the mirror band near the center hole of a DVD disc. (matrix information may be read either from the top side, or label side, of a DVD, or from the bottom side of the DVD). The matrix information tells alot about the pressing history of the particular DVD. The following matrix information can be found on many DVDs:

    1. Catalog number - the identifying number given to the release by the record company.
    2. Manufacturer's Work Order Number - This often is in the form of a bar code.
    3. SID Codes - On many DVDs, there are two Source Identification Codes (SID Code) in the matrix band. The SID Code, which was introduced in April 1994, consists of the letters IFPI (which stands for the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), followed by 4 or 5 additional characters. There are two different SID Codes found on DVDs:
      1. Mastering Code - The first SID Code in the matrix band is the "Mastering Code." The Mastering Code begins with "IFPI" followed by a sequence of digits beginning with the letter L, followed by two numbers that indicate the pressing plant, and then 1 or 2 additional digits that indicate the Laser Beam Recorder (LBR) that cut the glass master. The Mastering Code is put on the DVD at the time the glass master of the DVD is cut by the LBR, and it appears on all subsequent pressings of the DVD sourced from that specific glass master.
      2. Mould Code - The second Sid Code on a DVD is the "Mould Code." The Mould Code begins with "ifpi" followed by two digits that indicate the specific pressing plant that pressed the disc, and two or three additional digits that indicate the unique mould or stamper that pressed the DVD.
        SID Mould Codes include:

        06 - Warner Music Manufacturing Europe GmbH, Alsdorf, Germany
        97 - Optimal Media Production GmbH, Germany
        9R - TAKT, Boleslaw, Poland
