Discproducer Standard Models

The Discproducer comes in two Standard models: the Discproducer 100II and the

Discproducer 50.

Epson Discproducer 100II Model

The Discproducer Standard 100II is the advanced desktop publisher you can rely on with its high performance, fast throughput and top reliability. It is designed for unattended operation and can burn and print up to 100 discs at a speed of up to 30 CDs or 15 DVDs per hour. It comes with easy-to-use Total Disc Maker software with label design and publishing functions all in one package. For the

PP100II, you can replace DVD or Blu-ray drives and waste tanks in the field.

Best-in-class printing

It features a built-in inkjet printer with

Epson’s patented MicroPiezo ® technology.

Using six colors, it delivers the highest print quality in its class with crisp text and vibrant graphics. And it offers highcapacity cartridges and individual LEDs for each ink cartridge to alert you when the ink level is low.

Advanced robotics

Discproducer’s robotic arm with patented


technology ensures that only one disc is placed in the drive or printer at a time, eliminating dual feeding that can damage drives and interrupt unsupervised production runs.

Three operating modes

Epson’s Discproducer Standard 100II has three unique operating modes: batch mode for larger runs of up to 100 discs, standard mode for smaller runs up to 50 discs and an external mode for up to 5 discs with mixed media support.

Epson Discproducer 50 Model

Epson’s Discproducer Standard 50 model was designed for users with smaller output requirements. It has all the same features of the Standard 100II model, but with a smaller capacity. It can burn and print up to 50 discs at a speed of 15

CDs or eight DVDs per hour. In addition

Epson offers a Discproducer Blu-ray ™ 50 model that can burn and print Blu-ray discs at a speed of three discs per hour in addition to CDs and DVDs.

The Discproducer is the only disc publisher in its class to offer individual ink level sensors, AcuGrip technology, status readings on all functions and total front access.

Discproducer Network Model

Epson’s Discproducer Network model offers the same great features as the

Standard 100II model except the replaceable drives and waste tank. It is also designed for unattended operation and can publish up to 100 discs without the need to reload. It supports shared access between multiple users with Ethernet connectivity and no software licensing fees required. Just connect the Discproducer to your network and load the Total Disc Maker software onto each user’s computer.

Additional features

The Discproducer network publisher features a two-line LCD display for conveying ink levels, publisher status and error reporting information. It also has an embedded hard drive for storing jobs and an embedded processor to manage and expedite publishing jobs. In addition, it offers a lock to protect against unauthorized access.

Software for administrators

There is a special software tool for the

Discproducer network models, Total Disc

Net Administration. This tool is used to set up and manage the Discproducer for network disc publishing operations.

Discproducer Autoprinter Model

The Discproducer 100AP Autoprinter is ideal for use by businesses that already have high-speed duplication systems in place. It has all the features you need to print up to 100 discs at a time at a fast print speed of up to 95 discs per hour.

It uses the same advanced MicroPiezo inkjet printer as the

Discproducer publishers and with its vibrant six-color inkjet printing, precision

AcuGrip technology and easy-to-use software you get the high-quality results you’re looking for every time.

Low cost of ownership

Featuring Epson’s famous quality and advanced technology, the Autoprinter offers a low total cost of ownership. With its industry-leading high quality printer and robotic arm, it has an extended life of up to five years or up to 300,000 discs with regular maintenance.

Field Replaceable Components

In addition to all of their advanced features and industry-leading reliability, Epson has specifically designed the Discproducer

PP100II series so that worn or damaged disc drives (individually or in pairs) 1 and the waste tanks can be quickly and easily replaced on site. This ensures maximum uptime and means it is no longer necessary to send PP100II units in for this servicing.

The Discproducer 50 drives and waste tank are not field replaceable.

1 When replacing discs, you must install matched formats: all

CD/DVD or all Blu-ray drives only.

Epson Technology

Epson is known worldwide for its advanced robotics and printing technologies and the high reliability of its products. The Discproducer is no exception. Its compact design, coupled with its dust-proof body, outstanding print quality and patented AcuGrip technology deliver precision performance, professional-looking discs, superb reliability and amazingly low operating costs.

AcuGrip technology ensures single feed of media

Unlike other disc publishers, the Epson

Discproducer robotic arm features patented AcuGrip technology which ensures that only one disc is placed in the drive or printer even if two are stuck together. This technology not only increases the life of the product, but also helps protect against the interruption of unattended production runs due to mechanical blockage.

MicroPiezo technology is core to

Epson print quality

MicroPiezo print heads are at the heart of every Epson inkjet printer. MicroPiezo technology ensures uniform, stable ink droplets with virtually no satellites or misting. That’s why

Discproducer delivers the highest print quality in its class for crisp text and vibrant graphics at up to 1440 x 1440 dpi resolution. And its independent, high-capacity ink cartridges make printing extremely cost-effective with an estimated average cost of $.08 per disc.


Easy-to-use Software

Discproducer models come with the software and tools you need to burn and print discs.

3 Total Disc Maker includes disc editing, label editing and publishing functions. All it takes is a few easy steps.

1. Select Data Simply select the media format, then drag, drop and burn.

5. Merge Funtion In addition to the software’s other features, you can use your CSV file to merge and print unique information on each disc.

1 The printer’s ink pad is estimated to become saturated and need replacing after about 30,000 discs. Based on printing 2000 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. Ink pad is end-user replaceable on Autoprinter model only.

2 Actual cartridge yields may be lower with high-density images, hot or dusty conditions, less frequent printing, or printing predominantly with one color. All ink colors are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colors 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.
