Article excerpt

Microboards Technology, Inc. has announced the upcoming release of CD Blaster II, a second-generation high-performance CD-Duplicator designed for both occasional and heavy-duty industrial users. According to the company, the CD Blaster II is a multiformat, universal CD-Duplicator that features a new tower design that makes the Microboards duplicator one of the easiest to use. Regardless of the original CD's complexity, all the user needs to do is load the CD in the unit, press copy, and the system delivers an exact duplicate within a few minutes.

Among the new features are streamlined system data throughput, greater integrity of CD-recording, expandability, and connectivity. Another advantage is the ability to duplicate in either Track-at-Once or Disk-at-Once modes, the latter of which produces the equivalent of glass-master-ready CD-Rs. Priced at $2,995 for the single 4x drive version, the CD Blaster II complies with the Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, and White book specifications and can drive up to four 4x CD-Recorders simultaneously. The price for the four-drive version, with SCSI MUX, is $7,995. The duplicator also comes with an optional 1-GB SCSI hard drive.

"The superiority of this duplicator is due to two unique system features: the SCSI Pipeline architecture, which allows high-speed-direct CD-ROM to CD-Recorder data transfer without any degradation of quality; and the SCSI-MUX II controller, which permits recording on-the-fly, parallel data confirmation, and bit-by-bit track validation with data coming directly from the CD-ROM drive or after buffering on the optional internal SCSI hard drive," said Chuck Alcon, managing director of Microboards Technology. …
