Alera DVD/CD Publishers Now Available at Micro Center
Posted Feb 5, 2006

Alera Technologies, Inc., developer and manufacturer of Aleratec USB, DVD/CD duplicating, recording, and digital imaging solutions, has announced that its DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS personal publisher and its 1:4 DVD/CD Tower Publisher LS production publisher are available at Micro Center, bringing affordable disc publishing to retail customers. Not only are Aleratec disc publishers available at www.microcenter.com, they are available chain-wide, off the shelf, at Micro Center retail stores.

Aleratec publishers implement the LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling technology. Until now, DVD/CD disc publishing required the integration of direct-to-disc printers that dramatically increase the cost of a publishing system. LightScribe is a technology that offers consumers and businesses a simple, no-hassle way to burn professional-looking, silkscreen-quality labels on their CDs and DVDs. Using the same laser that burns data in their disc drives, customers burn their data as always, flip the disc over, reinsert it into the drive and burn precise, iridescent labels, eliminating the need for an integrated printer and making Aleratec publishers much more affordable.

All that is required for LightScribe disc printing is LightScribe-enabled media. There are no expensive ink cartridges, no messy markers or adhesive labels, just amazingly clear labels right before your eyes. This adds up to the lowest cost of ownership of any disc publishing system.

The 1:1 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS was the first LightScribe disc publisher. It records/duplicates DVDs and CDs and laser etches custom silkscreen-quality labels directly on the discs without a printer. The 1:1 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS (Aleratec Part No. 260148, Micro Center SKU 545186) has an Estimated Street Price of $399. The 1:1 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS is at least an order of magnitude lower priced than most solutions offering DVD/CD duplicating and label printing functionality. 1:4 DVD/CD Tower Publisher LS supports up to 4 simultaneous DVD/CD Copies or Recordings, or produces up to 4 simultaneous silk screen quality LightScribe labeled discs. You can create your own custom labels, with text and graphics, using the unique Aleratec Disc Publishing Software Suite, powered by Droppix, included FREE! with purchase. The 1:4 DVD/CD Tower Publisher LS (Aleratec Part No. 260150, Micro Center SKU 943498), is the only LightScribe DVD/CD Production Publisher and it is available only from Aleratec.
