Optical Experts Manufacturing

Profile:
Optical Disc Manufacturing (Oem) was a CD / DVD pressing plant with glass mastering capabilities, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.A.

The company formed in March 2000 and began production that summer. It changed its name to CDA, Inc. on December 23, 2014 following Oem's purchase of CDA (4).

Discs manufactured by Oem can be identified by the following matrix patterns in conjunction with mastering SID codes LN06, LN07, LN08 or LN09 and mould SID codes JIxx or HD0x. Please note JIxx can be easily mistaken for J1xx. Please enter the matrix string in its entirety.

For similar releases with glass mastering dates on or after Dec. 23, 2014 please see CDA ImPressing Solutions, USA.
