Excerpt: Our church uses the Bravo SE Disc Publisher to produce audio CD's of our sermons for our shutins and to produce rehearsal CD's for our worship ministry. In the future we hope to add video capability to our sanctuary, and then our Bravo SE will help us produce DVD's of sermons.The Bravo SE helps me save time and effort. I set up my files to burn, add a label, and hit GO. Then, while the Bravo SE burns and prints my discs, I can work on other things.
Pros: Clean Printing, Consistent Burns, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Quiet, Set And Forget
Excerpt: I had the pleasure of using a Primera disc publisher back in the mid-2000's on a project I was working on in Malawi, Africa. In my line of work, prefection is a must both technical and artistically. That said, when I needed a device that could mass-produce DVD's with professional disc labels, I researched what machines were available and chose the new Primera Bravo II publisher with the belief it was the best.
Pros: Consistent Burns, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Runs Cool
Excerpt: We purchased the Bravo SE to use in our church media center. We were looking for an automated label printer for cd's and dvd's and when we found we could purchase a duplicator/printer for close to the same price, we made the choice. We use it primarily to pre-print labels on cd's that will be duplicated immediately following our services. It was easy to set up and creating labels for printing was a snap.
Pros: Consistent Burns, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Quiet
Excerpt: A little trouble getting it started on the Mac, but once it was running and installed it outputs disks great. One recommendation to anyone using a lot of external devices, connect this directly to the computer, don't connect to a USB hub or use USB extension cables. Copies DVDs at 20 a batch, or more if you periodically check on the progress, emptying the output bin and refilling the input bin. If the duplicator runs out of DVDs, it will pause and wait for more.
Excerpt: I was spending a lot of non-productive time in my small video business making 20-30 copies of my DVD's at a time. "Burning" a DVD then "printing" it required a lot of hands-on and wasted time waiting for a task to finish. I needed a more automated way to deal with this. After comparing specs and prices of the few models on the market, I settled on the BravoSE Disc Publisher.
Excerpt: No complaints, burns and prints 20 DVDs in less than an hour so I can do other work. Great color quality, so clean it even prints the UPC codes on our disks. One ink package will print around 160 full color DVDs.
Pros: Easy To Install, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
Excerpt: record gospel music concerts and make 40-60 copies a month and give to friends.works best with white inkjet printable dvd. use verbatim from b&h sku vemriwh850. full coverage picture use 1 cartridge for 20 video.learned to use pattern supplied in setup cd.
Excerpt: A Great find for the money. I publish about 1000 DVDs twice per year. Moving from a burn,label, stick, box workflow up to a sit-n-njoy workflow was great for me. Pros: - Fast - it takes 5 minutes per disk at 16x (don't recommend using higher speeds in any DVD burner, regardless of media used) - Reliable - Works without ANY issues but see the following warnings: Connect directly to USB on PC, do NOT connect via a USB hub, especially if you have other heavy bandwidth usage...
