New Direct-on-Disc Labeling System Simplifies DVD/CD Creation
(ARA) - Over the last few years, affordable DVD and CD recording technology has given us all the power to produce and distribute digital content. Like millions of other Americans, you may have created CDs filled with digital photos to share with family and friends, or perhaps you’ve even created DVDs containing your camcorder footage. If you haven’t gotten in on the personal content revolution yet, now’s the time to take the leap. New technologies are making it easier than ever before to create professional quality productions without any special training or skills.
Recording DVDs and CDs at home is easy. Most of today’s computers include a pre-installed DVD and CD recording drive, and recording software. After firing up the software, selecting the files you want to record, and loading a blank disc into the drive, you simply click the software’s record button. A few minutes later, out slides your fully recorded disc, ready to share with the world.
But wait. As great as the content you’ve recorded on the disc might be, there’s one final piece missing. You need to label the disc. You don’t want to just scribble some notes on the surface with a marker -- that wouldn’t impress anyone. You need a labeling solution that looks more professional.
Fortunately, there’s a new technology called LightScribe that solves the problem without requiring the purchase of a disc printer or labeling system. With LightScribe, the same laser that records the disc information also laser-etches a professional quality label on it. You simply record the data onto the disc, take it out of the recording drive, flip it over, put it back into the drive, and wait while the label is created. The process is truly as simple as “burn, flip, burn.”
All you need to take advantage of this is a LightScribe enabled DVD/CD recording drive, labeling software and DVD or CD media. If you’re in the market for a new computer, select one that includes a LightScribe drive. Or you can purchase a LightScribe drive, complete with labeling software, to use with your current computer.
Your labels can be whatever you want them to be. Create one-of-a-kind designs with your own photos, text, and artwork using your label-making software. Or choose from the many free backgrounds the software provides.
“LightScribe is an exciting advancement for home recording enthusiasts and anyone who wants to easily give their creations a professionally produced appearance,” comments Bruce Youmans, vice president of marketing at TDK, a leading supplier of LightScribe DVD and CD media. “In the past, expensive equipment was required to create labels directly on discs. It’s remarkable that users can now achieve this with low-cost, readily available LightScribe technology.”
Because LightScribe discs serve as both the recording media and labeling solution, you’ll want to use the best media you can get. Widely respected as a high-quality brand, TDK offers a full-range of LightScribe DVD and CD media. “Our customers know they can count on TDK LightScribe DVD and CD media to get the job done right,” concludes Youmans.
From sharing digital photos and videos, to creating powerful work and school reports, LightScribe media is a compelling all-in-one recording and labeling solution for today’s home recordists.
