Customers can create their own custom labels, with text and graphics, using the powerful Aleratec Disc Publishing Software Suite, included free with purchase.

"Our Prosumer users have told us they needed a publishing tower that anyone can use and could be easily moved. We have listened and the result is the 1:3 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLS with even faster LightScribe DVDRW recorders. We included a new, more intuitive Aleratec Disc Publishing Software Suite that is Vista compatible and we are confident that the faster 1:3 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLS will be a winner where professionally publishing moderate quantities of clearly labeled discs is important," stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO. "Disc publishing to multiple drives simultaneously is a rapidly growing application of LightScribe Technology, and it's only from Aleratec. Per disc production time is dramatically reduced and there is no printer required, filling the void between one-off publishers and robotic systems."

There is no need for a printer that usually requires expensive proprietary consumables.

"The 1:3 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLS is a great desktop DVD/CD publishing system for customers that need professional quality in moderate quantities and who, today, rely on outside sources," said Kent Henscheid, Marketing Manager for LightScribe.
