Primera Technology Inc. announced its new PTDevSuite Software Developers Kit (SDK). Version 2.6.5 of PTDevSuite provides a comprehensive Application Programming Interface (API) for Windows XP/2000 and Windows Vista operating systems. It allows software developers to quickly and easily integrate automated CD-R, DVD±R and BD-R burning and printing into their own software programs. The SDK supports Primera’s Bravo II, BravoPro, Bravo XR and Bravo XRP Disc Publishers.
PTDevSuite SDK components are used by third-party software companies in medical imaging, digital photo mini-labs, backup/archival and storage, Web-based content creation, on-demand music and video download/upload, kiosks and more.
The suite comprises two software modules as well as sample applications with source code. PTRobot is a DLL-based API that allows developers to add robotic control and automated disc printing to their Windows XP/2000 and Windows Vista operating system applications. This module is designed for use by applications that have their own burn engine and already support disc burning. To help decrease development time, PTRobot comes with C++ source code for a fully-functioning sample application that supports disc movement between all positions as well as support for direct-to-disc inkjet printing.
PTBurn includes all the features of PTRobot along with its own integrated burn engine licensed from Sonic Solutions. It provides a simple text-file based interface that allows the developer to easily integrate automated disc burning and printing into their own applications. PTBurn monitors a shared folder for job submissions from anywhere on a Windows-based network. The client application simply creates an ASCII text file (Job Request File) in the Job Request Folder (shared “hot-folder”). The PTBurn application scans this Job Request Folder for new jobs submitted by any client application, and burns and prints the discs automatically using any of Primera’s Disc Publishers.
PTBurn runs on Windows XP/2000 and Windows Vista operating systems. The client can be from any Windows, Mac or Linux computer that can access the Windows shared folder over the network. To help decrease development time, PTBurn comes with C++ source code for a fully-functioning “client” application.
PTDevSuite SDK is available at no charge to software developers and integrators. Register as a developer at www.primera.com/register_developer.cfm.
