SMEA

SMEA

Profile:
SMEA (Sony Music Entertainment Australia) was an Australian optical disc manufacturing facility run by Sony Music Entertainment (Australia) Limited, active under this name from 1995-2004. The plant was formerly known as Sony Music Australia (run by Sony Music Australia Limited) from 11 January 1991 to 23 February 1995.

In 2004, Sony Disc Manufacturing unified all its international manufacturing facilities (excluding Japan) under the Sony DADC moniker, after which time (approx. late 2005-early 2006) the SMEA name was replaced by Sony DADC Australia in the disc matrix.

CDs glass mastered by SMEA almost always have a company pressing number located in the matrix ring, a string of either seven or thirteen digits. These numbers may appear alongside the release catalogue number, or alone; and should be entered as a catalogue number for SMEA in the LCCN section. If thirteen digits are present, please enter all thirteen in the LCCN.
