Primera’s Archiving Solution for Tapeless Video Workflow is Now Shipping
Posted Jun 8, 2009

Primera Technology, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of CD/DVD and Blu-ray™ Disc Publishers, announced today that it has partnered with Imagine Products, Inc. to offer fully-integrated support for Imagine’s award-winning ShotPut Pro™ software. Primera and Imagine recently introduced their combined solution at NAB 2009 in Las Vegas. The products are now shipping.

Video professionals can now streamline their workflow and automatically archive content onto write-once DVD and Blu-ray Disc media using Imagine’s software and a Primera Bravo-Series Disc Publisher. The entire offloading and archival process is automatic and hands-free.

"We were extremely pleased with the reaction at NAB. Professional videographers were thrilled to now have an affordable solution for archiving to optical disc from P2, AVCHD, SxS and RED ONE memory cards," said Mark D. Strobel, Primera’s vice president of sales and marketing.

As soon as a video volume is detected, an offload is started to multiple drive locations which can include hard drives and a Bravo-Series Disc Publisher. The burned disc is printed direct-to-disc with customized information that can include Metadata directly from the camera’s memory card.

The shipping version of ShotPut Pro can be installed on any Mac® OS X, 10.4 or higher. A Windows XP/Vista® version will also be available soon.

ShotPut Pro with Primera Bravo support is available from Imagine at www.imagineproducts.com or from Primera at www.primerastore.com for $89 (MSRP).
