M2 Engineering AB, a company in Stockholm, Sweden, that makes optical disc production equipment, said its new finishing line for DVDs has a cycle time of less than two seconds per disc.
The SQ200 can whip out more than 36,000 digital versatile discs per day.
M2 said world production of DVDs should grow 50 percent a year, to reach nearly 5 billion units by the end of 2005.
The company said the SQ200 is very flexible, with a modular design that will make it easy to upgrade to future disc formats.
M2 launched the machine at the Media-Tech Expo in Frankfurt, Germany, on May 25-27. The company expects to ship the first machine in September.
