Rimage Corporation introduced DiscLab, a new CD/DVD publishing system designed as a network appliance to meet the specialized requirements of digital point-of-sale and medical imaging applications.
The new single-box DiscLab system is being integrated into OEM equipment related to the retail digital photography, medical imaging and medical records markets, automatically creating custom content CDs and DVDs with indelible direct-to-disc printing. In addition, DiscLab is supporting development efforts with Rimage's partners in such retail point-of-sale applications as software vending, in-store CD audio creation and self-service video DVD authoring.
DiscLab was engineered for crowded retail counters, medical offices and other environments where space for equipment is limited. Due to an embedded microprocessor that eliminates the need for an external host computer, DiscLab has a footprint that is only 10 inches wide. This compact unit also incorporates Rimage's Everest(TM)II color printer, which imprints discs with waterproof, scratchproof and photorealistic images. Sophisticated software and robotics enable users to record CDs and DVDs with customized content, from two independent data streams, on an on-demand basis. DiscLab is easily attached to the user's local area network, permitting access by multiple users throughout an office or store. DiscLab also features a high degree of user-friendliness, robust operation in retail environments and an attractive price point.
These advantages also make DiscLab ideal for marketing communications, training and related applications in business offices.
Tom Sherman, Rimage's product line manager, commented: "DiscLab's innovative all-in-one network attached publishing design delivers the small footprint and advanced capabilities that are expected to facilitate our efforts to penetrate a range of new, high-growth markets. DiscLab also is Rimage's lowest-priced CD/DVD publisher featuring our advanced Everest II color direct-to-disc printer. Given these benefits, we believe our DiscLab system has significant sales potential."
