Sometimes it’s much better to hear about our products from a customer’s perspective, and we recently came across this on an auction web site – it says it all about our Director Series Publishing systems:
I simply do not know where to begin with all the features of this Publisher!
This is the single BEST investment that I have ever made to accelerate my business in the information business product creation! Despite the original high purchase price, I made a small fortune with this machine (just check all my other auctions – all these disks were all made by this machine!).
I used to burn my cds and dvds by hand in my early days, and then peel stick off labels on the disks printed by my laser printer. That took up so much of my time and the discs looked so amateurish.
I moved up to a duplicator system and it had no printer, so I still had to manually program each disk, and ‘peel and stick’ laser labels on every single disk! Things were better, but I still had to upload disc masters, program the duplicator, load blanks, remove blanks, sort out, print labels, peel and stick,………….., and all this was just taking up all my time! – I sometimes dreaded getting an order, knowing the work I had to do!
Then I heard about API. API is a remote call language that allows you to send a command independently to a machine, and have it work independently of operator programming. THIS WAS GREAT! Since now, I just push a button, and burn and print disk.
NOT MANY DISC PUBLISHERS USE API!!!
I WANT YOU TO BE AWARE, THAT THERE ARE VIRTUALLY DOZENS OF PUBLISHERS OUT THERE, THAT HAVE MANY FEATURES, BUT NONE HAVE THIS API ABILITY!!!
API is usually only available on HIGH END machines, for commercial production.
What this means is to you is, that if you buy a Disk loader machine without API, you will STILL be loading, programming, removing, putting label….. ALL MANUALLY! – and wasting your time to do simple repetitive tasks, over and over.
When I bought the MF Digital Director Series Commercial robotic Publisher all that changed for good!!!
I now just push a SINGLE button on my MAC and CDs and DVDs just pop out, completed burned, sorted, with smudge proof full color bright color label printed right on the Disk! No fuss, no sorting, and NO MORE MANUAL LABOUR!
This MF-Digital Commercial Director Loader also has a PC built inside it! Just add a monitor, and you have a fully functional PC (running XP). What this means to you, is that when you send an API command (or simply burn a disk by keyboard input), the CPU load will not be on your main computer, so you can work freely burning 100′s of disks, without slowing your host computer down. I use Mac to send API remotely, but you can use PC also, or any computer to send it.
If you are thinking of buying another duplicator or publisher, please read carefully what you are getting! Most other auctions are just consumer level machines, all requiring manual programming and external printing, and have no hardware upgrades, and no remote API. This means that they are not ‘push one button, pop out complete finished product’ remotely. Also, some machine have no internal PC so the CPU load stays on your machine, and are selling for well over the price of an MF Digital system, and no printer!, No PC, and no functionality!
