The Imation Disc Stakka is now available for Apple Mac. It is an automated carousel that stores and protects discs and retrieves them in seconds.
The bundled OpdiTracker database and search engine catalogues disc content, providing quick and simple access to thousands of files or images. The software can find and eject the required disc in seconds. Its password protection system allows users to control access to each Disc Stakka unit. The system also allows users to record the name of the person who borrows a disc.
When a new data disc is inserted into the computer's CD or DVD drive, OpdiTracker automatically recognises it and gives users the option to add its name and capture its contents in the database. Users can search OpdiTracker's database of stored discs by title, keyword, directory or file name.
The optional OpdiTracker Pro upgrade provides additional search criteria, password protection for individual discs and advanced reporting capabilities.
Each Disk Stakka holds up to 100 12cm discs and is linked to the Mac or PC via a single USB connection that supplies both power and data. Disc Stakka units can be stacked up to five high to create a tower that holds 500 discs without needing additional cables or desk space.
Larger businesses can expand the system further by creating more than 100 towers of Disc Stakkas that can be linked via powered USB hubs to store, manage and protect over 50,000 discs - all from the one computer. Disc Stakka units can be added or removed from anywhere in the system without having to reboot.
The system is suitable for Mac OS X v10.1 or later and Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Me and Windows 98SE.
