Microboards Adds 10-Drive CD/DVD Duplicator to Product Line

Chanhassen, MN, August 23, 2004 — Today, Microboards Technology announced the addition of a ten-recorder duplicator to their award-winning tower duplicator line. This affordable, professional-level CD/DVD copying system is easy-to-use and fully contained, operating without being connected to a computer.

Highest Throughput Solution
The CopyWriter Tower provides the highest throughput and most reliable capability of any tower duplicator in the industry. It is the only duplicator on the market available with up to ten drives in a single tower. In addition, the CopyWriter tower series has configurations of up to 16 recorders in a twin-tower system.

"With the introduction of the new 10-drive configuration, Microboards has even further distinguished itself from the competition " says Mitch Ackmann, President and COO of Microboards Technology. "It creates a new level of capability far above the industry standard of 7 drives."

Feature-Rich and Easy-to-Use
The CopyWriter Tower series of duplicators combines a stable design, feature-rich controller technology, and robust recorders to give users access to advanced abilities without sacrificing reliability. Advanced features include the ability to store disc images, change recording speeds, keep job counts, and perform audio track extraction. A two-line LCD display and simple two-button interface make accessing those features easy for even novice users.

John Westrum, Microboards' VP of Operations and CTO, commented: "The CopyWriter Tower series was designed based on 15 years of experience with recordable technology. It brings back the ten-bay capability that was popular in our early CD duplicators and combines it with functions that we have incorporated in many of our other products. Microboards truly designs with the user in mind."

The CopyWriter Tower series also comes with a two-year limited warranty and unlimited phone support, easily surpassing the industry standard single year. The towers will begin shipping immediately. More information is available at www.microboards.com.
