Primera Technology Introduces ComposerPlus(TM) Optical Disc Duplicator
ComposerPlus delivers fast, single drive performance for duplicating and printing up to 100 CDs at a tinie
PLYMOUTH, MINNESOTA, USA (November 12, 2001) - Primera Technology, Inc., one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of CD/DVD disc duplication and printing equipment, today announced its ComposerPlus Optical Disc Duplicator.
ComposerPlus is a low-cost duplication system that utilizes a single 24x CD-R recorder to duplicate and optionally print up to 100 discs per job from any Windows®-based PC. After a duplication job has been started, the process is automatic and no further operator intervention is necessary.
A precision "pick-and-place" robotic arm transports discs from the input bin to the integrated CD-R recorder. 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.
ComposerPlus attaches to any PC running Windows 98, Me, 2000 or XP through its built-in FireWire interface. Also known as IEEE 1394 or i.LINK, this interface allows high-speed transmission of data without errors. It also permits longer cable lengths than the SCSI interface that was previously used on Primera Technology's CD and DVD duplicators.
ComposerPlus comes equipped with Prassi PrimoCD Pro duplication software. Prassi, a division of well-known software vendor Veritas, has partnered with Primera Technology on ComposerPlus to offer a complete, professional disc duplication solution.
"We are pleased to now offer a faster, higher-capacity and higher-volume version of our best-selling Composer Optical Disc Duplicator," said Mark D. Strobel, Primera Technology's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Its 24x recording speed and FireWire interface allows users to flawlessly record discs faster than ever before. And the 100-disc capacity means that higher volumes of discs can be produced in one batch without having to reload media."
ComposerPlus Model 62101 is priced at US$2795 (MSRP). An optional 1200 dpi Signature IV CD Color Printer can be added for US$1495 (MSRP). An even higher- resolution and faster print speed model, the SignaturePro® CD Color Printer, prints at 2400 dpi and sells for US$1895 (MSRP). The Inscripta Thermal CD Printer sells for US$2995 (MSRP). All Primera products are available in more than 80 countries from Primera Technology's Authorized Resellers and Distributors. The products are also available from Primera Technology EUROPE in Wiesbaden, Germany.
