CopyWriter Pro Series Features Highest Throughput in the World

Chanhassen, MN, September 24, 2002 — Microboards Technology is now shipping the fastest manual loading duplication system available in the world. CopyWriter Pro features high-speed recorders and is expandable to carry up to 16 CD-R Recorders.

"The CopyWriter Pro with 16 recorders is designed to fill the multi-drive market previously serviced by our Inferno duplicator.", said John Westrum, Director of Operations for Microboards Technology. "We introduced the concept of multiple multi-drive towers to the market, and now we are able to offer it with high-speed recorders for optimal throughput."

"The innovation that went into CopyWriter Pro is what earned it the prestigious Editor's Choice Award", said Mitch Ackmann, President and COO of Microboards Technology. "Between our distributed products and our award-winning towers and autoloaders, Microboards is able to service any requirements for CD and DVD recording and duplication systems."

Microboards will be demonstrating the capabilities of the CopyWriter Pro at the SGIA show (October 30th through November 2nd, 2002) in St. Louis and the AES show (October 5th through October 8th, 2002) in Los Angeles.
