This new duplicator system features a simple, intuitive interface that includes 4 instant-access "Fast Keys" for common functions including PC-Connect and Source Selection. In PC-Connect mode, the unit can be connected to a PC via USB 2.0 cable for access to the duplicator’s internal hard drive. Users can simply drag and drop disc image and label files directly into the duplicator and be running duplication jobs in no time. The device also has a dedicated Source drive, allowing the device to make disc-to-disc copies without sacrificing any write capacity. You can burn the same number of discs whether burning from the hard drive or from another source disc.

In addition to making perfect copies, LightScribe technology allows this new tower duplicator to laser-etch high quality images and labels onto LightScribe-compatible discs without the hassle of costly inks or ribbons. This technology allows users to burn and label their discs with a single device.

Bravo Archive-Series Disc Publishers incorporate new recordable drives and media from Millenniata, Inc. Together they deliver the world’s first truly permanent data archival solution. Usable life of recorded discs is projected at an astounding 1000 years or more.

Instead of burning data into organic materials as on dye-based DVD recordable media, Millenniata’s M-DISC™ media is constructed of stable, rock-like materials that are known to last for centuries. Once data is written to M-DISC media it can be read back on current DVD drives. Both printable-surface and standard non-printable M-DISC media is available.
