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.
