PTDevSuite allows software developers to integrate automated CD/DVD
burning and printing into their software applications. The PTDevSuite is designed for use with Primera Technology's Bravo II, BravoPro and Bravo XR Disc Publishers.
Third-party software that currently uses components of the PTDevSuite SDK
includes medical imaging, digital photo minilabs, backup, archival and
storage, Web-based content creation, on-demand music and video download and
content upload, kiosks and much more.
The suite consists of two software modules as well as sample applications
with source code:
PTRobot is a DLL-based API that allows developers to add robotic control and
automated disc printing to their Windows 2000/XP application. This module
is designed for use by applications that have their own burn engine and
already support disc burning.
To help decrease development time, PTRobot comes with C++ source code for a
fully functioning sample application that supports disc movement between all
positions as well as support for direct-to-disc inkjet printing.
PTBurn includes all the features of PTRobot but also includes its own
integrated burn engine. It provides a simple text-file based interface that
allows the developer to easily integrate automated disc burning and printing
into their own applications.
PTBurn monitors a shared folder for job submissions from anywhere on a
Windows-based network. The client application creates an ASCII text
file (Job Request File) in the Job Request Folder (shared "hot-folder").
The PTBurn application scans this Job Request Folder for new jobs submitted
by any client application and burns and prints the discs automatically using
any of Primera's Disc Publishers.
PTBurn runs on Windows 2000/XP but the client can be from any Windows, Mac
or Linux computer that can access the Windows shared folder over the
PTDevSuite SDK is available at no charge to software developers and
integrators. Register as a developer at http://www.primera.com/register_developer.cfm
