Primera Technology’s Bravo II is designed for hands-free, automated production of up to 25 CDs or DVDs per job (50 discs with kiosk mode). An advanced robotic mechanism transports discs into the built-in 52x CD-R recorder or optional Pioneer combo DVD-R/CD-R recorder (records DVD-Rs at 8x and CD-Rs at 24x). After recording, discs are transported to the integrated printer and printed in full color directly onto the surface of the disc.

Bravo II increases the print resolution from 2,400 to 4,800 dpi, and incorporates AccuDisc, a patent-pending suite of hardware and firmware enhancements that provides the accurate and precise disc picking on the market. Utilizing advanced LED optics instead of mechanical components, AccuDisc eliminates misalignment of the picking mechanism and prevents the feeding of double discs into the recordable drive.

Bravo II uses a single high-speed USB 2.0 cable to connect to the user's PC or Mac computer. Previously, the Bravo Disc Publisher required two cables: a USB 1.1 cable for printing and robotic control and a FireWire cable for the data interface. USB 2.0, with a data transfer rate of 480 Mb/s, is 20 percent faster than the FireWire interface. Bravo II has increased its disc production rate by 10 percent due to a faster picking mechanism, increased robotic speed and 15-percent faster printing speed.

"With Bravo II, our customers will enjoy incredible 4,800 dpi print resolution, a self-configuring interface with USB 2.0 and the industry's best reliability with our exclusive, patent-pending AccuDisc Technology," said Mark D. Strobel, Primera Technology's VP of sales and marketing. "Bravo II is ideal for the duplication of video, software and music, as well as mission-critical applications such as medical imaging, digital photo processing, kiosks and service bureaus. You can even connect a Bravo II to your office network for enterprise-wide disc publishing."

Bravo attaches to any PC running Windows 2000/XP through its built-in USB 2.0 interface. Bravo comes equipped with PrimoDVD™ 2.0 duplication software by Sonic Solutions; a professional labeling software program called SureThing™ CD Labeler Primera Edition is also included for graphic design.

Bravo also attaches to any Mac running Apple OS X. Bravo comes equipped with Charismac Engineering's Discribe™ Version 5.0 duplication software and Magic Mouse Production's Discus™ labeling software.

The Bravo II CD Publisher with a 52x CD-R recorder is priced at $2,195 (MSRP); the Bravo II DVD Publisher with a Pioneer A07 DVD R/CD-R recorder is $2,695. A business card adapter kit ($199) is available to copy and print 80mm mini-discs, rounded "hockey rink" mini-discs and business card–shaped CDs.
