Delivers Unprecedented Speed and
Flexibility for CD Duplication Applications
SANTA ANA, Calif.--(BUSINESS
WIRE)--June 28, 1999--Procom Technology Inc. today announced the
new CD-R800 PRO tower, a self-contained unit that can perform
offline CD duplication (without the need for a host computer
connection) while simultaneously supporting online operations.
It combines eight CD-R drives with
an internal hard drive and onboard controller to produce a new
level of versatility in CD-ROM duplications.
"The CD-R800 PRO is the first
solution that addresses the full range of an organization's CD-R
requirements in a single device," said Michael Khoyilar, Procom
Product Manager. "It is an ideal solution for everything from
backing up a host PC to high-speed, concurrent duplication of
eight CDs to offline or self-contained operation."
The CD-R800 PRO is capable of
producing eight CDs simultaneously, supporting virtually any
format, including Single Session, Closed and Open Multi Session
CD, CD-ROM, ISO 9660, Mixed Mode, Mac, CD-XA, CD-DA, Photo CD and
Using the internal hard disk
drive, the CD-R800 PRO allows users to write images to the unit
for later off-line duplication, eliminating the need to repeatedly
download files for CD-R duplication.
Procom designed the CD-R800 PRO as
a fully self-contained CD-ROM duplication center. All units arrive
completely configured and ready for use with no additional
hardware or software installation required. Users simply load the
master and blank CDs, set the options and proceed with the
To protect against potential
session write errors that can waste blank CD-R media, the CD-R800
PRO includes a Test Write Mode that verifies the blank CD media
before attempting a permanent duplication.
Key benefits of Procom's
breakthrough technology of the CD-R800 PRO include:
- It is capable of producing
eight CDs simultaneously in the same amount of time it takes
to record one
- It supports Standalone Mode
with no host PCs required and Online Mode allowing PC to
access one CD-R drive for online recording
- Internal hard drive allows CD
images to be stored internally for future recording without
host PC intervention
- It is highly versatile with
read and write support for most standard CD formats
- The test write mode, if used
before writing, saves media by verifying blank CD-R discs
- It extracts audio tracks from
single or multiple CDs to internal hard drive for creation of
custom audio CDs
- High-capacity internal hard
disk storage allows the creation and storage of up to five CD
images on the internal hard drive, making future duplications
a fast and easy process.
