LaCie on Thursday announced Remote Burn software, which ships with its FireWire-based CD and DVD burners. The software lets you share multiple CD/DVD burners across a network in the home or office.
Bundled with LaCie's FireWire-based Portable DVD±RW with LightScribe and its d2 DVD±RW with LightScribe drives, the software works with drag and drop, and can automatically calculate the type of CD or DVD needed to burn the content you're sending over the network.
When Remote Burn is ready to make the copy of the CD or DVD, the software sends data across the network to the selected computers – sending the data first before trying to execute the burn, to prevent network traffic congestion from possibly causing the disc burn to fail.
The Remote Burn software provides burning verification and data compression, and lets you select which LaCie drive to use, manage the burn queue and view completion history.
System requirements for LaCie Remote Burn call for Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
