D Series Libraries

Alliance’s Plasmon branded D-Series DVD Jukebox libraries offered a flexible archiving solution with the ability to mix drives and media to suit most applications and user requirements. The D-Series libraries used magazines that contained up to ten single or double-sided 120 MM CD/DVD discs, which provided the ability to quickly add or remove media.
