Disc Stakka is an automated carousel that stores, protects and retrieves your 12 cm optical discs including data CDs, DVDs, music and game discs. Perfect for businesses, studios and home use, the Disc Stakka means you'll never waste time searching for a disc again, or have to worry about lost or damaged discs. The bundled OpdiTracker software manages your discs and their content, and enables you to find and eject any disc within seconds.
Disc Stakka means productive disc and content management. It is the future of CD and DVD storage.
Each Disc Stakka unit holds up to 100 discs and connects to your computer via USB for power and data. Built-in connectors allow you to stack units five high to create a tower that holds up to 500 discs without needing additional cables or desk space. You won't even need to reboot your computer. Over 100 of these towers can be linked via powered USB hubs to store, manage, and protect in excess of 50,000 discs—all from the one computer.
Disc Stakka comes bundled with the OpdiTracker content management software, which includes a database and powerful search engine. Need a file? OpdiTracker delivers the right disc in seconds!
Whenever you insert a new disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive, OpdiTracker can automatically recognize it and give you the option to add its name and file structure to the database. You can then store the disc in Disc Stakka knowing that when you need it again a simple search will retrieve it. You can either browse the discs and files stored in the OpdiTracker database or use OpdiTracker's search engine to locate any disc or file within seconds. Once located, you can eject the disc that contains the content you require, and then insert that disc into your computer, CD or DVD player, or game console.
OpdiTracker comes with a password protection system that enables you to control access to your Disc Stakkas. You also have the option to record the name of whoever borrows a disc so that you always know who has it.
Optional OpdiTracker Pro software further enhances the Disc Stakka's functionality and ease of use by adding extra search criteria, additional levels of password protection, and additional reporting capabilities. OpdiTracker Pro is the most efficient way to manage multiple Disc Stakka units.
