he Primera Bravo is a
complete, automated CD or
DVD duplication system. It’s actually
available in a CD only version, though
we couldn’t resist the DVD model,
which does DVD+R/RW duplication
as well as CD-R/RW discs.
Based around a 4x speed DVD
burner, which also tackles CD writing
at up to 16x speed, the real joy of the
Bravo Disc Publisher is in its hoppers.
The system relies on a robotic arm,
which picks up discs from the input
hopper and places them in the open
and ready drive tray. The disc tray
T
then closes and disc duplication is
carried out via control from a USB or
FireWire connected PC. At this point
the tray opens again, the robotic arm
picks up the disc and puts it in the
output hopper, and grabs the next
disc for duplication.
Each hopper can hold up to 25
discs, so you can copy 25 discs in
one simple, automated procedure.
To extend the possibilities, the system
can also operate in ‘kiosk’ mode, in
which discs are inputted from both
hoppers and ejected via a tray
between the two stacks of discs,
doubling the input capacity to 50.
If you’re duplicating discs for sale
or you just want them to look
professional, another arduous chore
in the process is printing labels and
sticking them to the discs. The Bravo
Disc Publisher helps out here as well,
as it has a full colour 2400x1200dpi
inkjet printer built in. Using Primera’s
own version of the SureThing CD
Labeller software, you can design all
manner of full colour DVD or CD labels,
complete with your choice of ready-
made or custom templates to include
text and graphics.
Another nice touch is that, instead
of using expensive and easily scuffed
sticky labels, the printing is applied
direct to the surface of the CDs or DVDs
being duplicated. The only slight
drawback is that you’re then limited
to plain white discs that will accept
printing, though these are getting more
common nowadays. If you duplicate a
lot of discs, the Bravo is quick and
easy-to-use, and a real time-saver.
