Trace Affex Unveils CD-Artist VI Printer
Posted Sep 16, 2003

Trace Affex announced that it has introduced its latest and most advanced ink-jet color CD/DVD printer, the CD-Artist VI that prints directly on CD-R/RWs, DVD-/+R/RWs and CD/DVD business cards. This printer is the third-generation Trace Affex CD/DVD printer to use HP's powerful, color ink-jet technology and represents a significant leap forward in imaging technology, performance, and ease of use.  Perfect applications include studios, service bureaus and sales and marketing tools requiring precise, high-quality CD/DVD presentation.

Based on HP's 6122-series DeskJet printer,  the Trace Affex CD Artist VI achieves the highest print density in the industry -- up to 4800x1200 dpi.  In addition, it uses enhanced PhotoREt III color layering, color optimization and color resolution technologies that produce sharper images, natural skin tones and brilliant colors on any ink-jet printable CD/DVD surface.  This enables a wide range of users to achieve results that addressable dots, alone, cannot accomplish.

The Trace Affex CD-Artist VI comes with a steel-locking tray, which easily snaps in and allows printing on standard CD/DVD-R discs.  Snap-in trays for special-sized CD-R business cards are available as an option.

Featuring industrial-grade construction, the Trace Affex CD-Artist VI can be connected to a PC via a USB cable included with the printer. The CD-Artist VI supports both USB and parallel connectivity to the PC.  CD-Artist VI is compatible with all the major Windows graphics software.  The minimum PC requirement is a Pentium 133MHz with 64 MB of RAM.

MSRP for the new CD-Artist VI is $1895.
