DISC PUBLISHERS DISCPRODUCER™ PP-50/PP-100/PP-100N Discproducer combines Epson’s market leading expertise in advanced inkjet printing and precision robotics to offer an efficient and highly reliable integrated disc publishing solution for a wide range of industries and applications. With Discproducer, fully automated CD and DVD publishing is just a push of a button away. High Precision and Reliability Discproducer is built to withstand hard knocks and keep dust out. The solid body provides a sturdy housing for the intricate technologies within to run processes smoothly without any interruption. Misfed and damaged discs are a thing of the past, thanks to the patented AcuGrip robotic arm which reliably handles one disc at a time. This reduces the risk of incurring scratches on the disc, often caused by conventional sliding mechanisms and prevents interruptions during unsupervised production, caused by mechanical blockage. Unrivalled Performance with Cost Savings Epson’s industry-leading Micro Piezo print head and ink technology ensure uniform, stable ink droplets with virtually no satellites or misting, producing brilliant and crisp disc labels at a high resolution of up to 1440 dpi x 720 dpi. Epson’s Micro Piezo™ technology also protects against striation and ink bleed, and allows ultra-fine colour graduation plus razor-sharp text – even in small font sizes. Convenient and Fuss-Free Operation Discproducer includes easy-to-use Total Disc Maker™ software for fast and efficient production of CDs and DVDs in just three simple steps. Step 1: Compile Data Disc Editing mode lets you indicate the type of data to be burned – for example a music, video or data disc – then load the data and save it into a created folder. It’s quick and easy, so even nonexperts and novices will find it a breeze. Step 2: Compose the Print Image Instead of traditional whole cartridges, Discproducer utilises six individual highcapacity ink cartridges that are easily replaced in a few seconds, thus allowing you to print more while keeping running costs low. Label Editing mode lets you compose your CD/DVD label using pre-defined templates and provided images or even customize your own design. Preview your finished composition and store it for easy retrieval in the future. Step 3: Configure for Production Publishing mode lets you set parameters such as the number of CDs or DVDs to be burned, the burning and print speed, the in/out trays for discs, and print resolution. Then simply press “Publish” and your production run is on its way. Discproducer PP-100 at a Glance Epson Discproducer is the only system in its class with an LED ink status indicator for each individual ink colour. 1 Ink level status LED 2 Six individual ink cartridges 3 Three media trays for runs up to 100 discs 4 External output tray 5 AcuGrip robotic feeder arm Monitoring System Reliability Compact Design The Discproducer’s Monitoring Software keeps you informed about all-important parameters such as tray status and pending jobs. This helps you choose whether to let your production run continue unattended, and protects you against unexpected interruptions, especially when facing tight deadlines. At less than 40cm wide, the Discproducer is one of the smallest systems in its class. Its flat top allows for another unit to be stacked above to save space or be used as a storage surface for media and print cartridges. Convenient Total Front-Operation Discproducer is the only system in its class that offers the ergonomic advantages of total front-operation and status reporting. Unlike other systems that allow publishing to continue without ink, Discproducer shows ink level status using an LED for each individual colour. This allows the printing process to be manually or automatically interrupted in case of a near-empty ink cartridge, thereby eliminating damage and waste. Versatile Operating Modes Choose from three operating modes to suit your production: Batch mode – for larger runs of up to 100 discs Standard mode – for smaller runs of up to 50 discs External mode – for up to 5 discs Discproducer includes mixed media support for simultaneous production of CDs and DVDs by specifying the setting for each stacker. It also has an additional drawer for up to 5 discs, so individual CD/DVD blanks can be conveniently removed without having to open the housing. Quiet Operation Work in peace while the Discproducer does all the heavyduty work quietly within the sturdy chassis.

Actual cartridge yields may be lower with high-density images, hot and dusty conditions, less frequent printing, or printing predominantly with one colour. All ink colours are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colours have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the “replace Cartridge” signal. 4 The printer’s ink pad is estimated to become saturated and need replacing after about 30,000 discs. Based on printing 2,000 discs per month, bi-directional. Actual results will vary based on such factors as images printed, print settings, media type, frequency of use and temperature. 1 2 3 © 2012 Epson Singapore Pte Ltd. All Rights Reserved.
