Primera Signature Z6 CD/DVD Printer

1. Introduction

Primera Signature Z6 CD/DVD Printer - Page 1

Signature Z6 is Primera's sixth-generation CD/DVD printer. It introduces a host of new features, including:

- Six-color printing for true photo-quality output
- 4800 dpi print resolution
- 20% faster printing than its predecessor
- A new low price of just US$1495.00 (MSRP)

Advanced Six-Color Printing
Signature Z6 is the world's first professional CD/DVD printer to offer six-color inkjet printing. By adding light cyan and light magenta to CMYK, printed photos look more natural. Colors are brighter and more vibrant, while shades and gradations are more gradual and smooth. Combining six-color inks with 4800 DPI resolution delivers the world's best direct-to-disc printing available.

Signature Z6 includes Primera's PrimaColor™ and exclusive new Z-Color Color Matching Systems for the most accurate and precise control over the colors you create and print.

Large Ink Cartridges for a Low Cost Per Disc
Cost per disc is one of the most important considerations when purchasing a CD/DVD printer for high-volume, professional use. That's why Signature Z6 has large, 34 and 41ml ink cartridges filled at 100% for its color and black inks. This enables the cost per disc to be about half that of other printers sold in the professional market.

SureThing CD Labeler Primera Edition, a professional labeling software program, is also included for graphic design. Graphic designs from other software programs such as Adobe PhotoShop, CorelDRAW and Illustrator are quickly and easily imported into SureThing templates. Or, the user can print directly to Signature Z6 as a standard Windows printer.

Signature Z6 also includes a patented early-warning ink level monitoring system. It not only tells users what percentage of ink remains before a run of discs is started, but it also estimates how many actual discs can be printed based upon an "on-the-fly" analysis of ink usage.

Optional Hands-Free Disc Burning and Printing
For fully automated disc production, Signature Z6 interfaces with Primera's Composer XL, ComposerPro and ComposerMAX Optical Disc Duplicators. Combining a Signature Z6 and Composer-series duplicator enables automatic disc burning and printing for up to 400 discs per job.

"Signature Z6 sets a new standard in our industry for print speed, print quality and cost per disc," said Mark D. Strobel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Primera Technology. "At the same time, it is also one of the most affordable professional CD/DVD printers available."

Signature Z6 is priced at US$1495.00 (MSRP). It is currently shipping and can be purchased from Primera Technology's Authorized Resellers and Distributors in more than 85 countries.
