Disc Description Protocol

A standard way of setting disc specifications; commonly used for delivery of disc pre masters for duplication.

Disc Description Protocol (DDP) is a format for specifying the content of optical discs, including CDs and DVDs.

DDP is commonly used for delivery of disc premasters for duplication. DDP is a proprietary format and is the property of DCA. The file format specification is not freely available.

The DDP must contain 4 parts:

  • Audio image(s) (.DAT file(s))
  • DDP Identifier (DDPID)
  • DDP Stream descriptor (DDPMS)
  • Subcode descriptor (PQDESCR)

An optional text file can also be included, this will contain the track titles and timings.
