Primera's DPPro, the world's best-selling two-drive, 100-disc capacity disc publisher, has now become the DPPro Xi-Series.
This re-designed and re-engineered range of disc publishers is faster, more efficient and even more reliable than ever before. It's the perfect choice for producing quantities of professional-quality burned and printed discs – automatically and hands-free.
Three DPPro Xi models are available:
The main goal for the new DPPro Xi-Series 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 4800 dpi 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 DPPro Xi-Series, 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.
DPPro Xi-Series 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 DiscPublisher Xi-Series 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 DPPro Xi-Series. 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™: 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.
PTProtect™: With a single mouse click, you 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 DPPro Xi-Series 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, back up 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.
