Microboards Releases the First True 16X DVD Duplicator with Ten Recorders

Microboards Releases the First True 16X DVD Duplication Tower with Ten Recorders

Chanhassen, MN — Microboards unveiled a manual DVD duplicator today that records ten full DVDs in under seven minutes. The unique controller architecture used by the CopyWriter Tower makes this tower-style disc copier the fastest available on the market. It also burns CD's at 48x speed, which is 3 minutes for a full 700mb CD.

The CopyWriter Tower has been shipping in its ten bay configuration since early 2004. It was introduced with 8X DVD recording drives, but now supports true 16X DVD recording out of the box. That ability is often claimed but has been a myth until now.

“We’ve done extensive testing of competitive products and discovered that, though many boast 16X recorders, not one of them was able to reach and sustain 16X record speed during the duplication process” said John Westrum, Microboards’ CTO and VP of Operations. “The controller technology used by common duplicator manufacturers simply can not support multiple drives at that speed.”

Industry insiders agree with the assessment, adding that they are “pleased to see Microboards continuing to lead the charge in DVD duplication speed. Higher throughput ability is welcomed by service bureaus and high-volume DVD duplicators around the world,” said Kevin Gabrik, V.P. of Sales at Techware. In addition to selling and repairing Microboards and Rimage CD / DVD duplicators and printers, Techware operates one of the Midwest's largest CD and DVD duplication and printing services in their Minneapolis, Minnesota headquarters.

True to form, Microboards’ latest product pushes the technical envelope without sacrificing reliability or ease of use. A simple two-button interface gives users access to immediate copying ability or advanced features such as track extraction, image archival, speed selection, and verification modes. Those leading abilities have already helped the Microboards CopyWriter Tower win various industry awards, including E-Media’s Editors Choice and Religious Product News’ Hot Products Awards. “Microboards prides itself on ease of use and industry-leading service and support”, said Westrum. “That tradition continues with the CopyWriter Tower.”

The CopyWriter Tower line comes standard with a two-year limited warranty and unlimited phone support. Part# DVD-PRM-PRO-1016.
