LaCie to Allow Networkable Multi-Disc Burning with its New Remote Burn Software for Mac OS
Posted Jun 5, 2008

LaCie today announced LaCie Remote Burn software for both its Portable DVD±RW with LightScribe, Design by Sam Hecht and d2 DVD±RW with LightScribe drives for FireWire that also include Toast Titanium. With LaCie Remote Burn, users can take full advantage of the LaCie DVD±RW burners' fast write speeds from any Macintosh located on the local network. Exclusively available to LaCie, Remote Burn can easily burn files with simple drag and drop, while automatically calculating the type of DVD/CD needed. When ready to burn, the software sends data across the network to selected computers with attached LaCie burners.

"LaCie Remote Burn is a complete solution for easily sharing multiple burners plugged into a Macintosh at home or in the office," said Christelle Dexet, LaCie Product Manager. "With three clicks of a mouse, one can burn their data to a remote LaCie DVD±RW drive or duplicate a custom DVD/CD using multiple burners over the network. In addition to our drives' stylish design, LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling technology and the bundling of a complete version of Toast Titanium, LaCie continues to offer the most advanced burning solution for Macintosh users."

While compatible for Macintosh only, LaCie Remote Burn is very easy to set up and use. The software provides professional disc burning capabilities, including burning verification and data compression for faster transfer. Additional features enable users to select which LaCie DVD±RW drive to use, manage the burn queue and view completion history to track data copied.
