DADC

DADC

Profile:
Digital Audio Disc Corporation or DADC was incorporated on 4th November 1983 and merged with Sony DADC in August 2005.

Plants were opened in Terre Haute, Indiana; Pitman, New Jersey and in Austria.

The Austrian plant was rebranded in the mid 1990's which coincided with more plants opening under Sony DADC. However, DADC continued to exist in the US, with Sony arranging the unification of the two brands in 2004. This unification occurred formally in August 2005 when DADC was brought in line with Sony's global branding for their manufacturing arm "Sony DADC".

Please use this profile where a release specifically credits "DADC" or if the release has been identified via one of the four digit codes mentioned below and was manufactured before August 2005. If in doubt, please omit the credit. If "DADC" is mentioned in the following forms, please use those profiles. Sony DADC, Sony DADC Austria, DADC Austria, Sony DADC Mexico, or DADC, Terre Haute, Indiana when they are stated in one of these ways. Sony DADC Japan Inc. also in Japan. There is also a guideline specifically about DADC Codes printed on release artwork or disc faces. These printed codes don't necessarily mean that the disc was pressed by DADC: RSG §4.11.

CDs pressed by DADC can be identified by the following matrix codes found in the CD matrix (not a complete list):
· CDRM (CD-ROM)
· CPDP
· CPDX
· CPTP
· CSIG (3" CD Single)
· CTDP
· CTDX
· DIDC (Sony Classical)
· DIDP (Sony Popular)
· DIDX (Non-Sony)
· DIDY (Columbia House)
· DIDZ (WEA Japan, 1983-1985)
· DIPX (Non-Sony Promo)
· DISP (Sony Promo)
· DRSS (DVD-ROM)
· DVDL (Dual-layer DVD)
· DVSS (Single-layer DVD)
· LDVS (Laserdisc)
· STLD (Hybrid SACD)
· SUDL (Dual-layer SACD)
· SUSS (Single-layer SACD)

About DADC matrix/LCCN numbers:

DADC releases mastered in Austria usually have matrices in the following pattern:
[DADC logo] Axxxxxxxxxx-yyzz BB CC
and have exclusively a SID Mould Code IFPI 94xx

- For CD releases, yy indicates the disc number (always 01 for single-disc releases; 02 and onwards are used for multi-disc releases), while zz indicates the number of discs in the release (again, always 01 for single-disc releases). DVDs do not seem to use the same numbering for the yyzz part however.
- BB is a two digit number, usually between 11-25. The second digit is the same as the last digit of the mastering SID code (IFPI L55x).
- CC is etched into the matrix ring, and is usually A1, A01, A00, B1, etc.

When entering DADC matrix numbers into LCCN, ONLY the "Axxxxxxxxxx-yyzz" part of the string should be entered.
