Rimage® Announces New Product Line – Catalyst Series

Rimage Catalyst™ systems provide a new, high-quality option for medium-volume disc publishing

Rimage Corporation, a global leader in optical media publishing, announced today that it is expanding its product line with the new Rimage Catalyst™ series of disc publishing systems. Catalyst is a re-engineered system tailored to customers that need industrial-grade durability, interchangeable printers, and compact size for medium-volume production needs. The series includes Catalyst 6000N, which contains an embedded PC, and Catalyst 6000, which requires an external PC. Catalyst systems will begin shipping in mid-February and will be available globally through Rimage partners and system integrators.

Chris Heim, CEO of Rimage, explains, “Catalyst, as its name implies, is designed to be a change-agent for our market. We analyzed everything – customer feedback, market trends, service logs, printing preferences, component durability, and usage patterns. Starting from the ground up, we engineered a new system that incorporates our most durable components, interchangeable printers, air filtration innovations, new usability features, and a small-footprint frame. Catalyst is a best-in-class system that is unlike anything else in the market.”

Rimage Catalyst is the perfect hybrid of the rugged durability of Producer, with the features of a Professional system. This offers an ideal package to customers who require the highest performance but do not have the high volume requirements or budget to justify a Producer system. Features include:

• Ruggedized Producer™ series robotic components throughout the entire system

• Best-in-class printing with interchangeable Everest® 600 and Prism III™ thermal disc printers

• New positive-pressure air filtration system for dust control

• Quick-release recorders and front-facing hard drive bays for improved usability

• 150-disc carousel and external bin that supports three different simultaneous media types

• Lockable door, digital status readout, compact frame, sleek design

• Rimage Software Suite 9.1 for the latest features in automating all aspects of disc publishing

“This announcement reflects the ongoing commitment that Rimage is making to on-demand digital publishing. Catalyst is a fully-featured system with proven, high-quality components, optimized to serve a wide range of markets including medical, manufacturing-on-demand, sales and marketing, finance, sports and entertainment, education, and more,” said Craig Conti, VP of product management. “We are excited to add Catalyst to our proven line of disc publishing systems.”
