Primera Technology Introduces ComposerPro™ Optical Disc Duplicator

ComposerPro delivers high-capacity, dual-drive performance for duplicating and printing large numbers
of CD-Rs or DVD-Rs

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND (June 26, 2001) — Primera Technology, Inc., one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers of CD/DVD disc duplication and printing equipment, today announced its ComposerPro Optical Disc Duplicator at the REPLItech Europe Show in Geneva, Switzerland being held from June 26-28, 2001. ComposerPro is being exhibited in booth #1210. The company is also exhibiting its full range of CD/DVD printing and duplication equipment.

Designed for high-volume, in-house disc duplication, ComposerPro utilizes dual CD-R or DVD-R recorders and a large media input bin to record and optionally print up to 100 discs per batch. Users can duplicate virtually any digital information, including music, audio, video, photos, data, presentations and more.

Totally Automatic Operation

A precision “pick-and-place” robotic arm transports discs from the input bin to the dual integrated CD-R or DVD-R recorders. After recording, discs are transported to an optional Primera Technology ink-jet or thermal transfer optical disc printer where they are printed in full color in up to 2400 dpi print resolution.  ComposerPro’s patent-pending picking mechanism is exceptionally reliable and designed specifically for unattended operation. Once a job is started, no further operator intervention is required. 

ComposerPro comes equipped with professional mastering and duplication software for Windows® 95/98/Me and NT/2000.The software allows the duplication of virtually all CD formats, including CD-ROM, CD-RW, CD-DA and Video CD.

Two ComposerPro models are available:

CD-R. Includes dual 16x CD-R recorders.

DVD-R/CD-R. Includes dual Pioneer DVR-A03 drives that record both General Purpose DVD-R/DVD-RWs as well as CD-R/CD-RWs at 8x speed.

By adding a Primera Technology ink-jet or thermal transfer CD-R printer, users can print directly onto the surface of discs for a professional, finished look. The 1200 dpi Signature IV CD Color Printer, an even higher-resolution and faster print speed model, the SignaturePro® CD Color Printer, prints at 2400 dpi, the Inscripta™ Thermal CD Printer.

“We are pleased to now offer a higher-capacity, higher-volume version of our popular Composer Optical Disc Duplicator,” said Mark D. Strobel, Primera Technology’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “ComposerPro’s dual drives give our customers the ability to produce discs twice as fast. And the 100-disc capacity means that greater numbers of discs can be produced in one batch without having to reload media.”
