This standard has several revisions, including version 2 for DVD.


DDP is used to create an image of a CD or DVD, so that the disc can be accurately replicated. It includes files that contain the contents of the disc, plus files that describe the format, structure, and any additional information. A DDP image written on DLT is the preferred format for delivery of a DVD titles to a replication facility. Two tapes are required for a DVD-9 (one for each layer). DDP images can also be sent through the Internet for immediate delivery to the replication facility via FTP


GEAR PRO Mastering Edition provides the professional user the ability to create DDP images.
