Just posting this for others interested in our research so far. We are currently looking at the following manufacturers and systems (listed in the order most likely that we'll go with).
Mediatechnics Systems Inc. - http://www.mediatechnics.com/
IP4DVD-4 with 4-4X DVD-R Recorders, 800 disc capacity $ 7,996 http://www.mediatechnics.com/pages/ip4dvdpt.htm

Rimage - http://www.rimage.com/
Protege II Automatic 2-bay DVD-R network based Seen on http://www.microboards.com/current/products/pub_producer2.shtml
AutoStar II Automatic 4-bay DVD-R network based Seen on http://www.microboards.com/current/products/pub_producer2.shtml
Down side on these are they both come with the Everest Printer (about 70 cents per DVD/CD - I'm not sure if we can get the Prism Plus - which we want)
Also the Desktop 4500 4 bay $6,370.00 may be an option (doesn't have thermal printing)
Logicube - http://www.logicube.com/
This company is really not our list because they don't have a thermal printer option (just putting it down because we've looked at it - and a slight possibility)
F-OCA5DVD-IJ Automated DVD-R 4 - writer 4X DVD/ 16X CDR system, 500 Disc Capacity $7,995.00 http://www.logicube.com/products/dvd_duplication/F-OCA4DVD.asp
We have looked at others but this is what is still on the possibilities list. Our top pick would be Rimage but their systems are a little too pricey for us (or they don't have the thermal printing). If anyone has anything else to add about any of these companies, their products or services we'd really appreciate it. We'll keep ya'll updated as to what we go with.
