You can record or duplicate DVDs or CDs, create labels with the software included, load the LightScribe media and click “Print”. It really is that simple! No expensive ink cartridges, no messy markers or adhesive labels. just amazingly clear labels right before your eyes.” stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO. “Customers do not want to be tethered to costly solutions with expensive proprietary consumables which are common characteristics of most disc publishing systems. We have successfully added remarkable value to DVD/CD duplicators with the introduction of LightScribe printing technology and they are available only from Alera Technologies.”
The 1:1 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS (Aleratec Part No. 260148, Ingram Micro SKU No. G24457), the first LightScribe DVD/CD Personal Publisher, has a low Estimated Street Price of $399. The 1:1 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS is at least an order of magnitude lower priced than most solutions offering DVD/CD duplicating and label printing functionality making it ideal for Prosumer, Corporate, Government and Education applications.
The 1:1 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS is a DVD/CD disc publisher that can record or duplicate discs and laser burn labels on as many DVDs and CDs as you need. To print labels you simply place LightScribe certified media with the label side down in the recorder, attach the DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS to your PC and burn any label you have created. The LightScribe printing technology is very high resolution and offers superior quality and clarity that can be compared to silkscreen. The DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS incorporates 16x DVD recording technology and can function as a 1:1 DVD/CD Duplicator or an external USB 2.0 DVD/CD Recorder.
Until now the equipment available to copy discs and label them required making a substantial investment in a machine that is only by a stretch of the imagination “desktop”. More than one person is required to move some of these machines so to get copies you have to go to the machine rather than having the machine at your desk where the work is. The 1:1 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LS is a package that is truly desktop with only a 7 x 11 inch footprint and weighing less than 12 pounds.
