PTRip™ Software for iTunes® and Windows® Media Player
PTRip is now integrated in Primera's PTPublisher Software
Primera Technology, Inc., the world's leading developer and manufacturer of CD, DVD and Blu-ray Disc duplication and printing equipment, offers an easy-to-use software to digitize audio CDs called PTRip.
PTRip gives users of Primera's Disc Publishers Series the ability to automatically load CDs into their publishers' built-in CD/DVD drives for importing audio tracks into Apple® iTunes or Microsoft® Windows Media Player. Primera's PTRip used to be a separate software, but is now integrated in the company's own software suite PTPublisher for disc burning and printing.
The PTRip program is simple to use and requires just three steps:
- Place audio CDs into a Primera Disc Publisher's input bin,
- Launch PTRip feature within PTPublisher,
- Click "Load to iTunes" or "Load to Windows Media Player."
Discs are robotically loaded and tracks imported into iTunes or Windows Media Player. The process continues automatically until the input bin is empty. Once imported, files are ready for playback on portable players including Apple iPod, iPhone, iPod Touch devices and many other brands and models of MP3 players and smartphones.
"We're pleased to offer PTRip to our valued customers. It lets them utilize their Disc Publishers in a new and completely different way," said Mark D. Strobel, Primera's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "There's no easier and more efficient way to digitize a personal CD collection than with PTRip and a Primera Disc Publisher."
In addition to the included PTRip software, Primera integrated also following software features into its wizard-style PTPublisher software:
PTBackUp: automatic, scheduled back-ups of files to CDs, DVDs or optional 25GB and 50GB Blu-ray Discs.
PTProtect: with a single mouse click, users can prevent unauthorized duplication of their valuable DVD video files. Three free protections are included; additional protections are available at a reasonable per-disc price.
For the time being, all three software features are integrated in the Windows version of the PTPublisher. PTPublisher is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7 and PTPublisher for Mac is compatible with Mac OS X v10.5 or higher. The built-in disc design software called SureThing Primera Edition (Windows) or DiscCover (Mac) enables users to place photos, backgrounds, text and graphics anywhere on the disc, including as far into the middle of the disc as you wish – a major limitation with other brands of disc publishers.
PTPublisher and therefore PTRip supports all of Primera's Disc Publishers including its new DP-4100 Series Disc Publishers with single-ink print technology. PTPublisher Software Suite is included in each and every Disc Publisher. Further to that software updates are free of charge during the life span of a purchased Disc Publisher and can be downloaded from the company's website at http://primera.eu/en/driver/software.html.
