Rimage 8.0 Disc Publishing Software Simplifies Integration, Enables Innovation

Publish date:

Jan. 31, 2008 — Rimage Corporation (Nasdaq: RIMG) today announced the version 8.0 release of its Rimage Software Suite, the company’s most comprehensive disc publishing software package to date. The 8.0 platform includes major innovations, such as a new messaging server, disc spanning capabilities, Blu-ray Disc™ support and Rimage Video Protect, an anti-rip application with unmatched playback compatibility. “This version of the Rimage software suite is a broader and deeper platform from which our customers and partners can deliver rich and powerful new applications,� said Manny Almeida, executive vice president for sales and marketing for Rimage. Rimage has refined the core of its software to be more responsive to a wider range of workflows, so customers can enjoy seamless integration of publishing, recording and printing operations within their own infrastructure. The full-featured Rimage Software Development Kit (SDK) further simplifies coordination with third party and user-developed software, allowing a more tightly integrated work process. “With the Rimage Rapid Application Programming Interface (API), our customers can author and implement software enhancements that allow them to do things they couldn’t do before,� said Tom Sherman, director of product management for Rimage. "The Rimage SDK and Rapid API empower our partners to implement a custom disc publishing operation that can share data with multiple local or remote users and systems simultaneously, giving our partners more control over the process."

Rimage Video Protect – Now Shipping with Rimage 8.0 Software

Rimage’s turnkey anti-rip application, Rimage Video Protect, is also part of the new 8.0 software release. Rimage Video Protect inhibits ripping and disc copying software, not playback devices, from performing as intended, ensuring excellent playback compatibility. The seamless integration of Rimage Video Protect into the Rimage system allows content producers to protect revenue and distribution plans without changing workflow processes or compromising deadlines. “As a small company, protecting the content we produce is essential to our success,� said Jeff Andrews, operations manager for Star Thrower Distribution, which produces leadership training and development DVDs. “Rimage Video Protect is seamlessly integrated into our workflow, with a simple clickbox interface that eliminates the need for a separate copy protection process.� As a passive software solution, Rimage Video Protect encapsulates data files on a DVD disc, causing access to the content by common ripping programs to be controlled. The original media content is not modified; rather, copy controls are written in areas of the disc that are not read during playback. “We are excited about the increased performance and reliability of Rimage software version 8.0,� Almeida said. “This new platform is designed with our customers and channel partners in mind. Now Rimage users have more control over operation and results, as disc production is more easily accomplished in-house – across a single office or a global network – using a Rimage system.� The version 8.0 software package with Rimage Video Protect is available now.
