OVERVIEW

Everest III, which is an enhanced version of Rimage's pioneering thermal retransfer printing technology, enables users to create custom, colorful, high-resolution labels bonded directly to the surface of CDs and DVDs? a permanent solution essential for many retail, medical and banking/finance applications. Enhancements include increased color accuracy, added hardware and software functionality, and enhanced ribbon communication, resulting in a combination of unmatched reliability, long print run capabilities, print permanence and the industry's lowest cost per disc.

 

The Everest III utilizes Rimage's patented retransfer printing process. The CMY panels are first printed to a clear retransfer ribbon inside the printer. Then, using heat and pressure, the printed image and a layer of the clear ribbon are applied to the disc. The finished product emerges dry, durable, and ready to handle. The final effect is amazing - a colorful, high resolution, disc with your choices of photos, graphics, text, bar codes, you name it - in less than 57 seconds.

 

CD-Designer label creation software is also included with the Everest III. This software allows the you to import graphics and text. Features include serialization, bar codes, and data merging capabilities. However, you don't need to be limited to the tools provided because the printer works well with such industry-standard software as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Macromedia, FreeHand, QuarkExpress, and CorelDRAW, Graphic designers can compose labels using their choice of software.

 

The pigmented ink on the Everest III ribbons is UV protected, ensuring vibrant colors throughout the life of a disc. Everest III disc printing will pass any sunshine or dashboard test you devise - a significant advantage over other disc printers. And because the ink is not water based, you will never see a smeared Everest III disc. Everest III printing also won't scratch off, you'll ruin the disc before you can scratch the label. This enables discs to be used for commercial distribution because Everest III printed discs can withstand the rigors of day-to-day consumer handling.

 

The Everest III employs an innovative variable dot technology, where the dots composing an image vary in size, resulting in sharper images with greater detail. In addition, the MicroDry ink is actually a thermal resin that contains pigment. This dry technology produces a dot with a fine edge. Consequently, dots per inch, or DPI, does not accurately reflect the print resolution. A better measure is lines per inch (LPI), and that is where Everest III truly shines. Silk-screen printing typically produces 85-120 LPI, and magazines are generally offset printed at 150 LPI. Everest III prints labels at 173 LPI color or monochrome, that is better than silk-screen!

 

Full color printing for photo-realistic images, monocolor printing for special effects or economy, white media, silver media - all are possible with Everest. The Everest III printing ribbons are on an easy-to-change carriage so even when a ribbon change is required, it's easy and can be done in less than a minute.
