And, talk about speed - your discs will print in less than 10 seconds per disc - full coverage!

CD-Designer label creation software is also included with the Prism III. This software allows you to import graphics and text. Features include serialization, bar codes, and data merging capabilities. However, you don't need to be limited to the tools provided because the printer works well with such industry-standard software as Adobe® Illustrator®, Adobe® Photoshop®, Macromedia® FreeHand®, QuarkExpress®, and CorelDRAW®. Graphic designers can compose labels using the software of their choice.

One unique aspect of the Prism III when used in a suitable Rimage system, is its Perfect Print feature. Perfect Print enables you to print variable data such as names and account numbers on a disc that has already been silk-screened.

An optical sensor in the Rimage transporter detects a small index mark that is silk-screened in the index ring along with your silk-screened design. The transporter then rotates the disc to the correct orientation so your customized printing will always be aligned with your original silk-screened artwork.

The Prism III comes loaded with special features:

Ribbon Saver - Reduces ribbon waste by using only the amount needed for printing, lowering printing cost and maximizing throughput.

Printhead Integrity Check - Automatically tests the printhead printing elements ensuring high quality images.

Ribbon Validation - Monitors ribbon usage and indicates when ribbon capacity is running low.

Cleaning Mode - Allows you to quickly clean the entire printhead surface using the Prism cleaning pad.

The Prism III is available in a variety of configurations. For easy, economical desktop use, there's the stand alone Prism III. For batch printing, there is the AutoPrism III, an automatically loading printer that connects via USB connection to a PC. For true on-demand CD-R/DVD-R production, connect your Prism III to one of Rimage's highly productive publishing systems.
