Disc duplication can be a mind numbing, time-robbing task, especially when hundreds or thousands of CDs or DVDs are involved. Add in a DVD or CD label for each copy, and you’re talking a serious long-term commitment. Optical disc publishers take the drudgery out of disc copying by automatically duplicating CDs, DVDs and/or Blu-ray discs and labeling the discs for you. These systems can save companies countless dollars in labor costs, but how do you choose the right disc copier for your needs?
The logical step is to go to your trusty search engine and key in “disc copiers.” Whoa! There are a lot of them out there and some are really expensive. You’re bombarded with prices, specs, and product descriptions, but nothing tells you what these products do and how to choose the right one for your organization. Don’t worry. Help is here.

Aleratec’s Optical Disc Buyers Guide reviews the various types and costs of optical disc publishers available. Important facts such as speed rates and labeling techniques are presented as well as how to choose a disc copier based on the type and amount of discs you need to copy now and in the future. Readers will also learn about the benefits and drawbacks to manual versus robotic optical disc publishers as well as stand-alone versus computer-connected systems.
