Rimage Unveils New DVD-R Solution at COMDEX Las Vegas

Producer II Line Now Available with Pioneer A03 DVD-R General Use or Pioneer S-201 DVD-R Authoring Drives (November 12, 2001)
Rimage Corporation (Nasdaq:RIMG) announced today that they are unveiling new automated DVD-R solutions as part of their Producer II product offerings, with the latest in DVD-R technology. The unveiling will take place at the COMDEX show in Las Vegas this week, November 12-16, 2001. Rimage will be in the RDVD Pavilion, booth number L5555 located in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The latest in Rimage automated DVD solutions feature the new Pioneer A03 DVD-R general use drives, a very attractive option, providing a cost-effective way to store or distribute large amounts of data (DVD-Rs hold 4.7 Gig compared to 650 MB on a CD-R). The new solutions will also be showing off Rimage's new ProNET Software with QuickDisc(SM) user interface. QuickDisc is an effortless program, designed with the express purpose of making CD/DVD creation a snap. Using the standard drag-and-drop format everyone is familiar with, your DVD is literally 3 clicks of the mouse away.


All Producer II DVD-R systems come standard with Rimage's breakthrough Everest printer for applying permanent, photo realistic artwork to DVD-R's. The combination of the Pioneer general use AO3 recorder and the Everest printer allow for high impact, professional quality DVD-R's to be created on-demand with no compromise over mass produced DVD's.

The new solution features the much faster FireWire(TM) (IEEE 1394) interface which is able to handle the emergence of constantly increasing recording speeds, allowing the Rimage Producer equipment to continue doing what it does best - on-demand publishing of CDs and DVDs, handling up to 8 different data streams simultaneously, giving users the freedom to produce multiple unique discs or hundreds of the same.

Producer II equipment continues to be available with the Pioneer S-201 DVD-R authoring drives, best suited for mastering applications. The addition of Pioneer's A03 DVD-R general use drives to the product line rounds out Rimage's DVD-R offerings. "Rimage is excited about our association with Pioneer Electronics," says Ken Klinck, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, "The strength of our partnership allows Rimage to complete our offerings of automated DVD-R solutions, placing us in a remarkable position as the only company to offer a full line of DVD-R solutions including both the Pioneer A03 DVD-R general use drive as well as the DVD-R Authoring S-201 drive." All units come standard with Everest(TM) label printing technology - the world's first on-demand, photo-realistic CD/DVD label printer.

The new DVD units will be put to the test at COMDEX as Rimage will set up a mini-DVD production studio in the RDVD Pavilion capable of producing thousands of DVD's during the course of the show. Information from the keynote presentations will be captured on digital video, then recorded on DVD and labeled using Rimage equipment on the COMDEX floor. Exhibitors and attendees will be able to get a first hand look at the production process by stopping in at the Rimage booth ( L5555 / RDVD Pavilion located in the Las Vegas Convention Center ) and visiting their DVD Production Studio. COMDEX marks the next phase for Rimage in bringing professional, affordable, automated DVD-R solutions to market. Rimage's Producer II systems are available in many different configurations starting at $11,450.
