Primera Technology Introduces ComposerMAX(TM) Optical Disc Duplicator
New high-volume, four-drive CD/DVD duplicator automatically records and prints up to 400 discs per job at fast 32x recording speeds
Los Angeles, California, USA (February 12, 2002) -- Primera Technology, Inc., one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of CD/DVD disc duplication and printing equipment, today announced its ComposerMAX Optical Disc Duplicator. The announcement was made at the REPLItech North America show
being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from February 12-14, 2002. ComposerMAX is a heavy-duty, automated CD-R/DVD-R duplication system designed for high-volume production environments. With its built-in recordable drives, ComposerMAX produces up to 400 discs per job without operator intervention. Advanced robotics are used to "pick and place" discs into either two or four recordable drives. After discs are recorded they are
transported into individual 100-disc output bins. The entire process is automatic and no operator intervention is necessary after a job has been started.
Discs can also be transported to an optional, built-in Primera Technology ink-jet or thermal transfer optical disc printer for full color printing with up to 2400 dpi print resolution. Depending upon the amount of data recorded and the graphics printed, ComposerMAX can produce up to 250 discs per hour.
Typical applications include service bureaus and disc replication businesses as well as other companies and organizations who have a need for high-volume in-house production of CDs and DVDs for audio, data, video, photos and virtually any other digital information.
ComposerMAX attaches to any PC running Windows(R) 98se/Me/2000/XP through its built-in FireWire(TM) interface.
Also known as IEEE 1394 or i.LINK(TM), 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. Depending upon the model purchased, ComposerMAX comes equipped with either Prassi(TM) PrimoCD Pro(TM) or PrimoDVD(TM) duplication software or both. Prassi, a division of well-known software vendor Veritas(R), has partnered with Primera Technology on ComposerMAX to offer a complete, professional disc
"ComposerMAX is the largest and most robust disc duplication system we've ever offered," said Mark D. Strobel, Primera Technology's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Every component has been designed to withstand continuous, heavy-duty use in production environments. With its 3/8" thick aluminum base plate, 12-gauge steel frame, tough polycarbonate top cover and proven robotics, ComposerMAX is one of the most reliable products of its type available. At the same time, it is priced significantly below other comparable disc duplication systems."
