Amongst several product launches at the Media-Tech Expo in Las Vegas, DaTARIUS unveiled its move into blue laser test and analyzer technology with the launch of the Blu-ray Disc Cube for its flagship optical disc test platform, DaTABANK.
The new BD Cube slots into an existing DaTABANK system, adding BD capability without the need to purchase a complete new system.
The BD cube generated strong interest on the floor of the show, said James Steynor, Chairman and CEO of DaTARIUS. "Our customers saw the advantage of being able to use the same test platform and move between DVD and BD by simply specifying the "plug and play" drive module and measuring set. We have developed the DaTABANK as format independent, so that drive Cubes can be developed quickly as new formats develop."
The other new option for the DaTABANK, shown for the first time was the DaTABANK/CS-5 which combines a central DaTABANK hub with DaTABANK Cubes, DVD Analyzers, or a combination of both, providing added functionality, such as glass master and stamper checking.
Other product highlights on the busy DaTARIUS stand was the company's new Universal Stamper Checker. This system, developed for all pre-recorded and recordable formats, measures a variety of key stamper properties, including thickness, roughness, and skew, as well as eccentricity of the outer diameter.
DaTARIUS also launched its new range of Ident Code and Print Inspect systems incorporating a new high-res digital camera technology. Specialists from the company presented technical papers and contributed to the successful IDDA conference stream.
