Burn-and-print device announced for Blu-ray

By Derek Sooman on
Primera Technology has announced an automated burn-and-print device for Blu-ray media. Known as the Bravo XR-Blu Disc Publisher, the device is a Pioneer BDR-101A Blu-ray Disc/DVD recorder with full-colour direct-to-disc inkjet printing. Currently, the device is only compatible with single-layer 25GB Blu-ray media, but a future firmware upgrade will add compatibility with dual-layer 50GB media. Great news here for folks who are mass producing their own video disks: 50 discs can be loaded into the device at once, enabling 2 and a half TB of data to be written in one go.

'We're proud to be the first company in the world to offer a professional, automated burn and print disc publishing system based upon Blu-ray Disc technology,' said Mark D. Strobel, VP of sales and marketing at Primera. 'The increased capacity of Blu-ray Discs over standard DVD-R media will open up new applications and solutions that until now were impossible due to storage space constraints.'
