Blue Laser Technology Means Increased Capacity

The key technology behind the Blu-ray disc is the blue laser, which has a wavelength of only 405nm (billionths of a meter).  DVDs use a pure red laser with a wavelength of 650nm, and CDs use a 780nm wavelength infra-red laser.  The benefit of having a blue laser with a shorter wavelength means it is possible to write smaller data pits, and significantly increase the amount of data stored on a disc.

The All New Microboards G3 CD/DVD Publisher

CD DVD DuplicatorsHawksM13 January 2010

Microboards Technology unveiled the G3 Disc Publisher this month. The latest innovation in a long line of award-winning disc publishing products by Microboards.  The enhanced G3 is to be positioned as a professional entry-level all-in-one desktop publisher.

microboards-g3-duplicator Microboards executives believe the G3 is the final piece to the puzzle in its three-tier line of disc publishers.  The G3 Disc Publisher is also available as a print-only system, the G3 Auto Printer, giving small businesses, home offices, and other organizations a solid option for short runs of CDs, DVDs, or Blu-ray Discs.  The CX Series is well-established as the mid-range line, known for its outstanding print quality, while the MX Series is popular for its low-cost, high-volume output.

“With the advent of the Blu-ray Disc, optical disc publishing remains a seriously viable industry and should continue to be for years to come,” said Microboards Director of Marketing, Aaron H. Pratt.  “In order to continue to provide consumers with the absolute top-of-the-line optical disc publishing products, Microboards has developed what we feel is the ultimate entry-level inkjet publisher available on the market globally.  I am confident our customers will whole-heartedly agree with me when I say that [the G3] is as good as it gets when it comes to short runs of printing and recording discs in-house.”

The G3 Disc Publisher and G3 Auto Printer are expected to street-price at $1495 and $1095, respectively.  The Publisher will be packaged with Microboards’ own PrintWrite publishing software with versions for both the PC and Mac.  Also included is SureThing label design software for PC, USB 2.0 cable, and a starter kit including blank media and GX-300-HC HP tri-color ink cartridge.

“When users purchase the G3, they’re not only getting a durable all-in-one unit, they’re also getting award-winning software created specifically for our own publishers,” Pratt continued.  “We’re extremely confident that the G3 will stand up to the most rigorous of its intended uses; and as always our products are backed by the industry’s best support staff.”

The broad offering that Microboards brings to its optical users is split into two core components—hardware and consumables.  Microboards is well-known in the optical disc industry for its tower and automated duplicator lines, and Microboards acts as the master U.S. distributor of JVC media, the only Japanese-made disc on the market today. “Our powerful combination of hardware and recordable media provides customers with the best of all worlds,” Pratt stated.
