Primera releases new automated CD/DVD burning software
Primera Technology Inc., a developer and manufacturer of CD/DVD duplication and printing equipment, recently announced its PTDevSuite Software Developers Kit (SDK). 

PTDevSuite provides a comprehensive Application Programming Interface (API) for Windows XP/2000. It is designed to allow software developers to quickly and easily integrate automated CD-R and DVD R burning and printing into their own software programs. The SDK supports Primera's Bravo II, Bravo XR and BravoPro Disc Publishers.

Third-party software that currently uses components of the PTDevSuite SDK includes medical imaging, digital photo minilabs, backup, archival and storage, web-based content creation, on-demand music and video download and content upload, kiosks and others, the company said.

The suite consists of two software modules as well as sample applications with source code:
  • PTRobot is a DLL-based API that allows developers to add robotic control and automated disc printing to their Windows 2000/XP application;
  • PTBurn includes all the features of PTRobot but also includes its own integrated burn engine with a simple text-file based interface that allows the developer to easily integrate automated disc burning and printing into their own applications.
