Primera Announces Speed Enhancements to its Bravo-Series Blu-ray Disc Publishers
Posted May 25, 2010

Primera Technology, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of CD/DVD and Blu-ray Disc Publishers, today announced that it has made two significant speed enhancements to its Bravo-Series Blu-ray Disc Publishers:

• Blu-ray recordable drives have been upgraded from 8x to 12x burn speeds

• New high-speed eSATA interface replaces USB 2.0

All Primera Blu-ray Disc Publishers manufactured after May 1, 2010 are shipping with 12x drives and eSATA interfaces. Each machine ships with the appropriate eSATA cable(s) and a PCIe eSATA adapter card. Some recent PCs and notebook computers also have one or more integrated eSATA jacks.

With almost six times the effective data transfer rate of USB 2.0, eSATA allows Primera's Blu-ray Disc Publishers to burn Blu-ray Disc media at full 12x speeds.

"High-resolution Blu-ray Discs are quickly becoming popular for distributing high-resolution videos of weddings, events and even independent films," said Mark D. Strobel, Primera's vice president of sales and marketing. "With 12x drives and eSATA interfaces, Primera's Bravo-Series Disc Publishers are the fastest way to produce professional-quality burned and printed Blu-ray Discs."
