- We have been using a stand alone unit made by Kanguru for a couple of years and love it. Don't know if they have one that copies 50 at a time - ours duplicates 5 at a time. Very easy to use - put in a master and 5 blanks and press run - that's it. http://www.cdwg.com/shop/products/default.aspx?EDC=716585
- Before you purchase the duplicator there's alternative that might make sense for you. If' you're planning on distributing DVDs of school events to parents, for a fee you can publish the DVD online and the parents can order them from the on line vendor. Most parents don't mind the cost and they can order a copy at their convenience with a credit card. They'll get a shrink-wrapped DVD with art work you choose. I've worked with people who have used services like these although I've never done so myself. A Google search brings up a few choices: http://www.lulu.com http://www.customfix.com http://www.dvd-makers.com One caution about purchasing duplication equipment: if you buy it, be realistic about the amount of time it will require. Unless you're spending well into 4 figures you're going to get a device that requires you to load it with blank DVDs. The first run of 50 you do is kind of exciting; later you may find that feeding the DVD duplicator has an impact on time devoted to other responsibilities. B&H Photo is one vendor which sells DVD duplication equipment. www.bhphoto.com
