Microboards GX Disc Publisher

Current Model:  G3 Disc Publisher

You don’t have to wait—or pay a fortune—to produce professionally finished CDs, DVDs, or Blu-ray discs. Instead, you can create them yourself in the comfort of your home or office with Microboards’ reliable entry-level disc publishing solution—the GX Disc Publisher. Designed for low-volume disc publishing with a capacity of up to 50 discs, the GX Disc Publisher enables you to easily design labels, record, and print directly onto virtually any disc. This fast, affordable, and compact solution produces professional results with every disc. It only costs you roughly 23 cents per disc (full color, full coverage); and because it’s automatic, you don’t have to do a thing except set up the job. Utilizing HP print technology with vibrant HP Vivera inks and 4800-dpi resolution, you’ll see high-quality text and images printed consistently and reliably onto each and every disc without the tedium of labels.

New! Now available in ISO Long-Term Archival configuration.
