MF Digital has introduced its own proprietary inkjet DVD/CD printer based on HP 5650 technology. By combining the HP 3-picoliter ink technology with MF Digital mechanisms, the PicoJet delivers photo-quality graphics and laser-quality text to in-house producers of CDs and DVDs, according to MF Digital.
MF Digital's PicoJet inkjet printer offers fully automated, direct-to-disc printing and is compatible with MF Digital's PC-Based Scribe PC, Scribe SA Standalone, Director Publisher, and Director PRO Publisher. As a 4800dpi printer with 16.7 million color capacity, the PicoJet provides edge-to-edge printing for standard 120mm CDs and DVDs, CD business cards, and 80mm mini discs.
The proprietary SureThing labeling software is included and can be used with most design packages, including CorelDRAW and Adobe Photoshop.
The PicoJet carries an initial manufacturer's suggested price of US $1695. Shipping of the product has just begun. The PicoJet replaces the OptiEC PRO in MF Digital's line of thermal and inkjet printers.
