Burn One-Of-A-Kind Label designs for CDs and DVDs Using Charismac Discribe with LightScribe on the Mac OS

·  Easily Label one-of-a-kind DVDs and CDs for business and home use

·  Laser-etch directly onto LightScribe Media

·  Supports Macintosh OSX 10.5x

LightScribe is an innovative technology that uses a special disc drive, special media, and label-making software to burn labels directly onto CDs and DVDs. Because the labels are laser-etched—not printed—there's no ink, no smudging, and no peeling.

Discribe already expands the boundaries of CD and DVD mastering and simplifying the workflows for creative professionals in Pro Video, Music, photography, engineering and science. Loaded innovative features, Discribe offers users faster, more productive workflow for burning Discs for virtually any optical disc file system format. Now for the first time users can use Discribe to burn one-of-a-kind labels on LightScribe enabled media with their LightScribe drives.

“We see this as a huge win for customers who already have LightScribe enabled drives, but it’s a bigger win for customers who have demanding projects that want to produce many labels.” Said Wyler Furgeson, President and CEO for Charismac Engineering Inc. “Customers now have the option to burn LightScribe disks in tower configurations, with Discribe Multi-Drive, or an Autoloader, with Discribe Robotics. Many more options exist today thanks to this remarkable technology”


LightScribe-enabled disc drives do double duty. The same laser that burns your data (photos, music, backup files, etc.) will also laser-etch your customized CD/DVD labels.

Discribe connected to a LightScribe drive allow customers to Print the label.

Discribe Multi-Drive connected to LightScribe drives (in tower configuration or just a bunch of drives connected via USB and Firewire) allow customers to Print to all drives at once.

Discribe Robotic connected to a auto-duplicator that has LightScribe drives can queue batches of print jobs to print labels on many discs.
