Optical disc management solution providers
Businesses supplying hardware, software or solutions based around the distribution or management or optical discs may improve the efficiency of their solution through using or integrating with elements of our end-to-end disc management solution.
Businesses and home users are being confronted with an ever-increasing optical disc management problem. In 2006, over 12 billion CD-sized recordable optical (blank) discs were produced worldwide with the majority sold in a spindle package. Industry experts have forecast optical disc unit volumes will reach over 30 billion units per annum by 2010. DVD recordable media is driving this growth with a compounded annual growth rate of over 25%. When the other types of CD-sized media such as audio CDs are added, in excess of 60 billion discs were produced worldwide in 2006!
Digistore Solutions (S) Pte. Ltd. research shows unanimous demand across the small business, home and enterprise departmental level for a more productive way to store, manage, protect and retrieve 8 cm and 12 cm discs. For those users who do not have the requirement or resources to implement a near line or online disc storage solution, there are limited alternatives to the highly inefficient practice of storing discs in soft pouches, on shelves or in plastic racks. That was, until Digistore Solutions invented its patented optical storage technology and MediaTRACKER disc management software.
Digistore Solutions (S) Pte. Ltd. has developed an end-to-end optical disc storage, management and retrieval system that enables vendors to economically and quickly deploy disc storage solutions to their customers. Digistore Solutions works with vendors to provide solutions in the following ways:
