Microboards Unveils Live CD Recorder

New CD Recorder/Duplicator with Support for Live CD Audio and CD Video Recording Announced by Microboards Technology

February 20, 2002 — Microboards Technology, the leading manufacturer and distributor of CD and DVD duplication systems, today announced the release of a combination duplicator-recorder. The unit will begin shipping March 30th.

Tailored to the needs of the education and church recording markets, the CopyWriter Live features Disc-to-Disc recording capability combined with RCA and XLR inputs for live video and audio feed. The unit is configurable for use as a desktop or rack mount device with a remote for access to its full range of features.

In addition, the CopyWriter Live is able to span from disc to disc, continuously recording from virtually any source. As one disc reaches capacity, the second recorder begins writing, allowing the user to record without pause for as long as the application requires.

"CopyWriter Live was designed with the needs of the church user in mind," said Microboards Technology's President Mitch Ackmann. "We invested considerable effort in visiting with end users from around the country and identifying a feature set that would allow the user to economically add CD mastering and duplication to their capabilities."

"We are pleased to be able to offer this product at a very reachable price point. Markets that are still holding on to tape will be able to add CD Recording without upsetting their current configurations, and the industry will benefit as a whole, as well as the end user."

The CopyWriter Live will be available through Microboards VARs and Resellers beginning March 30th at a list price of $799.
