The Rimage Media Tester & Analyzer is used to provide assurance that the shipped disc has always perfect quality.
  • Service Provider testing – The Service Provider can test produced customer discs (CD/DVD/BD) to check quality and avoid complaints. This will improve their customer satisfaction and ends up in a higher Net Promoter Score.
  • Storage testing – No matter if you archive your valuable data for documentation, copyright protection or anything else, you always should check the readability of your disc now, to ensure it will be fully functional and readable when you need it months or years later.

The Rimage Media Tester & Analyzer is a result of a joint project between Rimage Europe GmbH and DaTarius. The System is controlled from a standalone host computer in a small form factor, running Windows 7. The host application builds on the flexibility of the known DaTarius user interface and offers virtually any level of analysis.

The presentation methods suit both the most advanced users and line operators, offering single key test sequences and presentation in simple mode. In order to guarantee the best and easiest experience, Rimage configured the system to startup directly into the Datarius User Interface. Standard test sequences are prepared for easy operation without the need of training.

The enclosure is furthermore designed to ensure optimal signal properties and controlled airflow. The exterior design has a very small footprint so it can fit in nearly every working environment.
