Alera Announces New DVD/CD Auto Loading Duplicator

Copy up to 180 unattended DVDs/CDs at up to 16x (May 02, 2005)

Alera Technologies, developer and manufacturer of Aleratec Award Winning DVD/CD Optical Recording and Duplicating Solutions announced today the addition of another entirely new product category. Alera Technologies is introducing its new 1:3 DVD/CD Auto Copy Tower stand alone DVD/CD Auto Loading Duplicators that copy up to 180 DVDs at up to 16x, unattended, with no computer required. The new Aleratec Auto Copy Tower includes a fast and reliable robotic loading mechanism, a 120GB Hard Disk Drive to store frequently used source material, and three of the latest technology 16 x 16 DVD/CD Recorders to assure the fastest possible copies. The new Auto Copy Tower also supports DVD Double Layer recording technology so users can copy 8.5GB DVDs using Double Layer media. The distinctive "professional black" design fits perfectly in any environment, from the computer room to the Hollywood Studio.

"Prosumers have been asking for an automatic duplicating solution that can be simply loaded with blank media and it will generate the number of copies needed. We believe that we have exceeded their expectations with a fast and affordable solution that that can be loaded and forgotten," stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO. "With 16x DVD recording speeds and 3 DVD/CD recorders, the 1:3 DVD/CD Auto Copy Tower can produce up to 180 DVDs in about 6 hours or 180 CDs in about 3 hours, completely unattended. That's the highest throughput in its class. A run takes less than a normal work day or can be left overnight increasing everyone's productivity."

The 1:3 DVD/CD Auto Copy Tower has an advanced robotic loading mechanism and controller designed specifically for reliable, unattended loading and unloading of DVDs and CDs into the Auto Copy Tower's DVD/CD recorders. Making up to 180 copies is easy. Just copy your source disc to the Auto Copy Tower's Hard Disk Drive and load the number of discs you need in the input bins, push Copy and the 1:3 DVD/CD Auto Copy Tower does the rest unattended, freeing you to do something else.

The 1:3 DVD/CD Auto Copy Tower incorporates a fast, built in 120GB hard disk drive to store up to 24 frequently used 4.7GB DVD images. The hard disk also maximizes copying stability especially in high speed copying operations. The advanced DVD/CD recording technology in the Auto Copy Tower is the highest speed available.
