Microboards Makes Fastest Duplicators in World

High-Speed 40X Duplication Announced by Microboards Technology

Most Popular Tower Duplicators Fastest in the World

Chanhassen, MN - May 15, 2002 — Microboards Technology announced it is now shipping the fastest duplicator line available on the market. The new models' significant features include support for 40X record speed and a new brushed-aluminum style casing.

With the new CopyWriter Tower Series, Microboards not only maintains their position as the leader in standalone duplication technology, but the CopyWriter brand name is brought back to the tower duplication arena. "CopyWriter was the name of the world's first standalone CD duplicator, which was also brought to market by Microboards" said John Westrum, Chief Technology Officer at Microboards Technology, "and it was only appropriate to bring it back as we reach this new benchmark for speed and throughput." Pricing on the CopyWriter Tower starts at $1595.00 (MSRP), making it practical for a variety of markets.

Configurable with anywhere from two to eight recorders, the CopyWriter Tower is designed to be both economical and scaleable. Since all Microboards Tower Duplication equipment comes with a built in reader, the user is able to make up to eight copies simultaneously from a single master. In addition, the CopyWriter Pro version comes with an integrated hard drive and user interface module that gives the user access to advanced features. These include speed selectability, image archival, and track extraction for creation of customized audio CDs.

"Our channel of resellers has long looked to Microboards for the latest technology in a stable, well tested hardware solution", said Mitch Ackmann, President of Microboards Technology. "We are prepared to continue to service that market, and also to encourage new markets to adopt CD-R and DVD-R technology with our ease of use, professional design, and competitive pricing".

The CopyWriter Tower Series is one of many CD and DVD Recordable Technology products provided by Microboards. Further information is available by visiting their website at www.microboards.com.
