About DualDisc

A DualDisc is a branded product that is a standard DVD 5 on one side while the opposite side contains music that can be played in nearly all CD players. Along with specific packaging requirements, DualDisc will require that the same music found on the CD player side must also be available on the DVD side. The music on the DVD side can be as simple as standard LPCM or as rich as 5.1 DVD-Audio. The audio on the CD player side must be less than 60 minutes 17 seconds including any additional ROM data and buffers. In order to be considered a DualDisc, some video content must be included, the extent to which has not yet been established by the RIAA.
