State-of-the-art Blu-ray publishing from Epson; With better-than-industry-standard accuracy, the DiscproducerTM PP-100IIBD is ideal for large-volume Blu-ray/CD/DVD optical media storage

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Building on its proven expertise in disc publishers, Epson announces the PP-100IIBD, its flagship Blu-ray model. This latest addition to the Discproducer series features top-of-the-range, archival-grade Blu-ray disc drives. These drives (Pioneer PR1 series) perform above the industry standard, offering extremely accurate publishing with an exceptionally low error rate.

Along with its cutting-edge disc-drive technology, the PP-100IIBD features a USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface enabling it to burn and print at least eight Blu-ray discs in an hour. With capacity to produce up to 100 x 50GB BD-R discs, or more than four terabytes of data, in a single batch, the PP-100IIBD is perfect for organisations digitising and archiving high volumes of data, including government and medical sectors, broadcasters and creative agencies.

Epson is also the only manufacturer with expertise in both robotics and printers. Fully automated, the Epson patented AcuGrip BD robotic arm mechanism ensures only one disc is grabbed at a time - even if discs are stuck together. This allows users to work on other tasks while production runs can be left to complete unattended.

The PP-100IIBD delivers high-quality precision printing on the disc surface. Epson's Micro Piezo printhead produces razor-sharp text, even down to very small font sizes. The six-cartridge individual ink system keeps the cost per produced disc low, and the front-facing LED display allows easy monitoring of ink levels for each colour.

The PP-100IIBD couldn't be easier to use. The included Total Disc Maker 5.0 software is intuitive and user-friendly. Advanced functions include 'read back' for quick file-searching within a stack of discs and 'merge print' for printing individual content onto each disc during batch production.

Adrian Clark, head of sales for Business Systems at Epson UK says: "Epson has already demonstrated its position as a market leader with the accuracy and reliability of the Discproducer series. This is why over 50 percent of hospitals in Europe that install CD/DVD publishers for archiving patient data are selecting Epson1." The Discproducer PP-100IIBD will be available to purchase from January 2013.
