Primera Announces Linux Developer Support for its Disc Publishers

PLYMOUTH, MN, USA (October 21, 2008) — Primera Technology, Inc., the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of CD, DVD, and Blu-ray Disc™ duplication and printing equipment, today announced its support of Linux printing on its Disc Publisher II, Disc Publisher Pro, Disc Publisher XR and Disc Publisher XRP.

Addressing the needs of the fast-growing Linux developer and user communities, Primera’s fully-featured Linux printer drivers can be easily integrated with open-source or commercially-available disc burning engines. Together, these components provide a complete, automated disc production solution.

“Primera is committed to make our best-selling disc publishing systems available to users of all popular operating systems,” said Mark D. Strobel, Primera’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We were the first in our industry to support Windows® Vista®. We recently completed Mac® drivers for virtually every product we make. We introduced our new, best-in-class PTPublisher™ and PTPublisher Network Edition software. Starting today we support Linux printing. This latest announcement is just one more example of how we continue to expand our compatibility to meet the varied needs of our broad user base.”

The Linux printer drivers will officially be announced by Primera Technology Europe GmbH at the Systems trade fair being held October 21-24, 2008 at Messe Muenchen in Munich, Germany. Primera Europe’s stand is located in Hall B2, Stand 450.
