EPSON® INTRODUCES DESKTOP DISC PUBLISHER FOR CD AND DVD DUPLICATION
The Epson Discproducer™ PP-100 is an ideal and flexible solution for low-volume 0disc publishing where high quality customised labelling is required
14th February 2008 – Epson has announced the release of Disc producer, a compact integrated desktop disc duplication solution designed for businesses and organisations that need to create professional quality customised CDs or DVDs on demand.
Suitable for design and photo agencies, hospitals, schools, universities, government departments, reprographic houses, duplicator services and any other business with duplicating or archiving needs, the Disc producer can burn and print up to 100 copies of the same disc or unique discs, in a single, fully automated process.
Equipped with Epson’s patented AcuGrip™ robotic technology, Disc producer’s robotic arm ensures highly reliable single disc pick up. It also incorporates a built-in, six colour, inkjet printer that delivers high quality print. Using Epson’s patented Micro Piezo® inkjet technology, the print head provides precise control of the ink droplets, ensuring labels with sharp text and vibrant graphics.
The high capacity, individual ink cartridges increase ink efficiency and can produce over 1,000 discs without needing to change a cartridge. Each cartridge includes a low-ink sensor and LED indicator to ensure that operators have adequate ink to complete a full run. Combined with Epson recommended Taiyo Yuden Watershield discs, the glossy prints are instantly smudge and water resistant.
Epson’s Disc producer makes disc production as easy as using a printer. The ‘Total Disc Maker’ software, developed by Epson, enables data formatting, label editing and control of the production process in one easy-to-use application. The Disc producer’s totally enclosed cabinet with positive pressure environment reduces airborne particle contamination and increases read/write reliability. Its compact footprint and front operation means it can be conveniently placed on a shelf. The robot arm places the discs in a separate output tray for easy removal.
“The Disc producer delivers high quality, reliable performance in a desktop unit making it ideal for businesses and organisations with duplicating and archiving requirements.” said David Ormerod, Product Manager, Epson RTD. “It is unmatched in its combination of features, reliability and superior quality print.”
