PoINT supports innovative "load balancing" with network-based production systems for CD/DVD and Blu-ray Disc

New load balancing function improves productivity by splitting media production jobs to various systems

(PresseBox) ( Siegen, Germany, )
PoINT Software & Systems GmbH, the software specialist for storage systems, offers with the latest version 3.0 of their established software product "PoINT Publisher NG" an innovative solution by which multiple production systems for CD/DVD and Bluray Disc (socalled "autoloaders") can be controlled centrally in a network. The new load balancing function improves productivity by splitting media production jobs to various systems, thus compensating possible system breakdowns by redundancy.

Autoloaders can burn and label CD/DVD and Bluray discs automatically with robotics, multiple recorders and a label printer. The systems are controlled by the "PoINT Publisher NG" software, which is able to run multiple systems simultaneously thanks to the load balancing function.

The former load balancing function for autoloaders directly connected to a server, has been enhanced with the latest version 3.0 for network based production systems and offers new application scenarios for this device class. Highest levels of productivity and reliability are realized this way.

The new load balancing function assigns a media production job automatically to that autoloader which can perform it fastest. A job consisting of a substantial number of media to be produced can also be distributed to multiple autoloaders ("job splitting") to optimize production time. The "FailOver" function ensures moreover, that a job, which is supposed to be performed by an autoloader currently not available due to a defect, is automatically directed to another device.

Especially customers working with TEAC disc publishing systems as EXPLORER 1 and DiscSprinter profit from the enhanced load balancing function: As the new function was especially created for the TEAC hardware, it supports the specific characteristics of these devices. Petar Stojcevic, Sales & Marketing Manager at TEAC Europe, is particularly happy about this: "We can now meet our customers' high requirements regarding increased productivity and less downtime even better with the new load balancing functions of PoINT Publisher NG which actually strengthens our enormous competitive advantage. We are very glad that PoINT is a strong partner of ours who implements market requirements precisely".

Thomas Thalmann, Manager Operations at PoINT, also expects very good new possibilities from the enhanced product functions: "The new load balancing is another decisive factor in the range of functions of our product PoINT Publisher NG. The solution meets business critical requirements customers expect nowadays from professional production solutions."

PoINT Publisher NG 3.0 supports autoloader models of various manufacturers. A detailed list as well as pricing can be requested at PoINT Software & Systems GmbH.
