Primera Technology Introduces All New Disc Publisher II™ Disc Publisher
Disc Publisher II Disc Publisher has 4800 DPI print resolution, USB 2.0 high-speed interface and exclusive AccuDisc™ Technology.
PLYMOUTH, MN, USA (January 30, 2004) — Primera Technology, Inc., the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of CD/DVD disc duplication and printing equipment, today announced its Disc Publisher II™ Disc Publisher.
Instead of copying and labeling discs one at a time, Disc Publisher II is designed for hands-free, automated production of up to 25 CDs or DVDs per job (50 discs with kiosk mode). An advanced robotic mechanism is used to transport discs into the built-in 52x CD-R recorder or optional Pioneer® combo DVD±R/CD-R recorder. After recording, discs are transported to the integrated printer and printed in full color directly onto the surface of the disc.
The Disc Publisher II Disc Publisher is a robust, professional version of Primera’s Disc Publisher. It has many new features, including:
Highest Print Resolution
Disc Publisher II increases the print resolution from 2400 to 4800 DPI. 4800 DPI is the highest print resolution currently offered for direct-to-disc printing.
AccuDisc is a patent-pending suite of hardware and firmware enhancements that provides the most accurate and precise disc picking on the market. Utilizing advanced LED optics instead of mechanical components, AccuDisc eliminates misalignment of the picking mechanism. It also prevents the feeding of double discs into the recordable drive.
USB 2.0 Interface
Disc Publisher II uses a single high-speed USB 2.0 cable for connecting to the user’s PC or Mac computer. Previously, the Disc Publisher required two cables: a USB 1.1 cable for printing and robotic control and a FireWire™ cable for the data interface. USB 2.0, with a data transfer rate of 480Mb/s, is 20% faster than the FireWire interface.
Disc Publisher II has increased its disc production rate by 10% over the Disc Publisher. This is accomplished with a faster picking mechanism, increased robotic speed and 15% faster printing speed.
“With Disc Publisher II, our customers will enjoy incredible 4800 DPI print resolution, a self-configuring interface with USB 2.0 and the industry’s best reliability with our exclusive, patent-pending AccuDisc Technology,” said Mark D. Strobel, Primera Technology’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Disc Publisher II is ideal for the duplication of video, software and music as well as mission-critical applications such as medical imaging, digital photo processing, kiosks and service bureaus. You can even connect a Disc Publisher II to your office network for enterprise-wide disc publishing.”
Disc Publisher attaches to any PC running Windows® 2000/XP through its built-in USB 2.0
interface. Disc Publisher comes equipped with PrimoDVD™ 2.0 duplication software by Sonic™ Solutions. Sonic has partnered with Primera Technology to offer a complete, professional disc duplication solution. A professional labeling software program called SureThing™ CD Labeler Primera Edition is also included for graphic design.
Disc Publisher also attaches to any Mac® running Apple® OS X. Disc Publisher comes equipped with Charismac Engineering’s Discribe™ V5.0 duplication software and Magic Mouse Production's Discus™ labeling software. Mac and PC users can also design labels in any of their favorite graphic design programs such as Adobe® Illustrator®, Photoshop®, etc.
