Posted Jan 25, 2005

Alera Technologies has announced a new generation of its DVD/CD duplicator solutions. The 1:3 DVD/CD Copy Tower Pro 16 and 1:7 DVD/CD Copy Tower Pro 16 are standalone DVD/CD duplicators that copy DVDs at up to 16X. The new Alera copy towers include a 80GB hard disk drive to store frequently used source material. The new Pro 16s also support 8.5GB DVD+R DL recording technology.

The duplicator controller provides copy control flexibility as well. Users can select multiple speeds for both read and write processes, prescan source discs for optimum copy speeds, and select duplication sources; moreover, customers can analyze discs showing the size, number of tracks, and sessions. The backlit LCD display reports the % complete and other status elements of each duplicator function. The display indicates when a process will be completed, which is useful when copying discs that cannot be copied at full speed.

The 1:3 and 1:7 copy towers are priced at $1,199 and $2,299, respectively.
