The BravoPro Xi DVD Disc Publisher from Primera is a desktop DVD publishing system, capable of burning and labeling up to 100 inkjet-printable discs without user intervention. Perfect for creating large numbers of discs, the publisher boasts high-resolution 4800dpi printing at droplet sizes as small as 3 picoliters.
Primera 63720 Description:
The publisher's AccuDisc system ensures that discs are properly moved from the input tray, to the burner, to the printer, and then to the output hopper. It includes software for Mac and Windows to control printing. Also included is network software for Windows, allowing multiple PCs to send jobs to the printer.
Primera 63720 Features:
The main goal for the new BravoPro Xi was to maximize throughput. All parts of the process were carefully analyzed, including robotics, disc picking and software. All have now been optimized for the fastest possible production speeds.
The most significant change has been to the disc transport robotics. Instead of a lead screw, the robotic arm is belt-driven by a microprocessor-controlled stepper motor. Belt drives are capable of much faster throughput - in this case, about 300% faster!
Precise Disc Picking
Primera's AccuDisc picking technology has always been the best in the business. It uses patented, precision mechanics and software to know that it has picked just one disc at a time. This prevents misfeeds and double discs which can not only interrupt operation but can even damage recording drives.
Now in its seventh generation, AccuDisc has been further optimized for speed. As a result, disc picking is up to 200% faster than before
The built-in, high-resolution inkjet printing is powered by Lexmark, a world leader in printing technology. With up to 4800dpi quality, it has the highest printing resolution available from any manufacturer of disc publishers - in fact, almost four times higher print resolution than a leading competitor.
Combine this ultra high resolution printing with Primera's TuffCoat with WaterShield CDs and DVDs and you'll get the most professional looking discs, too. TuffCoat with WaterShield discs are highly water-, scratch- and smudge-resistant. They also have a gorgeous, high-gloss finish unlike anything you've probably ever seen before. Of course, virtually all other brands of inkjet-printable optical media are also supported
Getting the Discs Out
In some applications such as medical imaging and video/audio-on-demand it is imperative that discs can be dispensed out the front of the unit. On the BravoPro Xi, it's an automatic, built-in feature. On some competitive units you have to manually open a door or a drawer every time - a huge inconvenience if you're doing it all day long.
The BravoPro Xi also has two software-selectable input bins. This means you can put 50 CDs on the left and 50 DVDs on the right. Or put 50 DVDs on the left and 50 BD-Rs on the right. Whatever combination works for you, you'll save the time and trouble of switching out media when a different type is required for a particular job
Powerful Software That's Easy to Use
Using the BravoPro Xi is as easy as printing to any office printer. Primera's exclusive PTPublisher Software, written by our own software engineers, has won critical acclaim for its simple, wizard-style interface. Training new operators takes just minutes instead of hours.
Simply choose the type of job you want to perform (data, video, audio, etc.), match with a print file, and press "GO." It's that easy!
Built-in disc design software called SureThing Primera Edition (Windows) or DiscCover (Mac) lets you 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
You get more for your money with the BravoPro Xi. In addition to the included PTPublisher software for disc burning and printing, you also get these valuable extra built-in software features:
PTRip lets you robotically rip your personal music CDs and load them into Apple iTunes for iPhone, iPod, and iPod touch, or Microsoft Media Player.
PTBackUp supports automatic, scheduled back-ups of your files to CDs, DVDs, or optional 25GB and 50GB Blu-ray discs. Archival-grade TuffCoat branded optical media is available from Primera.
With a single mouse click, PTProtect can prevent unauthorized duplication of your valuable DVD video files. Three free protections are included; additional protections are available at a reasonable per-disc price.
Other Primera-exclusive software features, including the first-ever iPhone application for disc publishers, are currently under development. Software updates are made available to registered users at no extra charge
The Most Illuminating Feature
Also new to the BravoPro Xi is built-in blue LED lighting. The soft blue glow not only helps you see what's going on inside, but pulses when supplies are getting low and blinks on/off if an error condition is reported. You'll always know the status of your jobs whether you're sitting next to the unit or standing on the other side of the room
Integration Made Easy
Sometimes integration is required for applications like PACS/DICOM medical imaging systems, law enforcement and surveillance video, backup and archival, video and audio on-demand, and more.
Primera makes integration easy with its Software Developer's Kit (SDK) for both Windows and Mac. The SDK is free to qualified developers. We're proud to be the only company in our industry that actively supports 3rd-party developers on Windows, Mac, and even Linux
Simply the Best
With their fast throughput, superior print quality, valuable extra software features, affordable price and per-disc costs, Windows and Mac compatibility, SDKs, and more, Primera's BravoPro Xi disc publishers are simply the best mid-sized disc publishers you can buy.
You can feel confident buying a Primera product. Over the past ten years we've built more disc publishers than all of our competitors combined. We take pride in providing the best products and the best after-sales support available
