Primera Announces Blu-ray Disc Duplicator and Printer for Video Production, Game Development
Posted Oct 12, 2006

Primera Technology, Inc., the world's leading developer and manufacturer of CD, DVD, and BD duplication and printing equipment, today announced its Bravo SE Blu Disc Publisher. Instead of producing Blu-ray discs one at a time, the Bravo SE Blu automates the entire burning and printing process. An advanced, sixth-generation robotic mechanism is used to transport discs into the built-in Pioneer BDR-101A Blu-ray Disc/DVD Recorder. After recording, each Blu-ray Disc is individually inkjet printed direct-to-disc in full-color at up to 4800 dpi resolution. Up to 20 discs per job can be produced automatically and hands-free.

 Typical applications include high-definition video, digital movie post production as well as game development for the Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3). PS3 is scheduled to be introduced in November 2006 and supports only Blu-ray disc media for all new high-definition games. T

he Bravo SE Blu is fast and easy to set up and use. It connects via USB 2.0 to any PC running Windows® XP/2000. Bravo SE comes equipped with PTPublisher(TM) SE duplication software. Developed by Primera and powered by Sonic Solutions, PTPublisher SE offers a complete, professional disc duplication solution that is easy to use. It supports both Blu-ray Disc and DVD+/-R media. SureThing(TM) CD Labeler, Primera Edition, is included to make direct-to-disc labeling fast and easy.

The Bravo SE Blu Disc Publisher is priced at US$2995 MSRP and is available immediately through Primera's resellers and distributors in more than 85 countries.
