Using A Disc Publisher Rather Than Outsourcing

Typically, the field of applications a videographer can cover is wide. Videographers can be part of large-scale productions but also manage smaller, event scale productions, such as commercials, documentaries, live events, short films, training videos, weddings and other family and business events.
They maintain and operate a variety of video equipment, edit footage, and stay up to date with technological developments and advances. When a videographer is in the progress to produce films and videos he most times also needs to produce high-quality discs. The quantities are quite small at this time, either used for drafts, promotions, launch events or small orders from private people.
Further to that, the disc copies need to be created in a short amount of time. Usually, videographers outsource the disc production. But most of these production companies accept orders starting at a 1,000 discs but no less and often are unable to turn around the project as quickly as a videographer would need these small quantities. A perfect solution for that kind of application is a Disc Publisher by duplicating and printing solution manufacturer Primera Technology.
Primera’s Disc Publishers provide the ability to burn and print professional looking discs at home or in the office. They eliminate the need for burning discs one at a time and applying a sticky label to each disc or having to outsource the production, which requires long lead times and high minimum quantities. With built-in high-speed recorders, direct-to-disc printing and fast robotics, Primera’s disc printers and publishers automate the process of producing CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs in exact the quantities videographers need and when they need them.
DP-4100 Series is Primera’s latest Disc Publisher model range offering the fastest disc printing in its class. It prints full-colour, 100% coverage discs in just six seconds each. Production costs per disc is always something videographers have to consider especially due to reduced budgets for small video projects compared to full-length feature productions. Therefore DP-4100 Series is Primera's first solution incorporating separate ink cartridges for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. This saves money on every printed disc as only the colour(s) that need replenishing needs to be replaced. This is especially true for print layouts using more of one colour than another.
Depending on the needed disc capacity, whether Blu-ray or just CD/DVD support is requested and whether a desktop or industry-grade solution is needed, Primera offers several different models starting with the DP-4051 – a small 50-disc capacity desktop model and ends with the DP-4102 XRP – an industrial version that comes in a 18-gauge steel cabinet with locking front door, high-wattage auto-switching commercial power supply and on top of that can be rack-mounted.
Besides archival and distribution of video and audio in broadcast television and film, applications for Disc Publishers include content-on-demand at retail stores, kiosks, law enforcement, medical imaging and more.
Primera is presenting its DP-4100 Series at Broadcast Video Expo. People not only get to see the products in action but Primera also runs a special back rebate promotion. Visitors, who register with their e-mail and postal address at Primera’s stand D40 and purchase a new Disc Publisher within seven days after the show, receive a 10% back rebate.
