Aleratec Announces Expandable LightScribe DVD/CD Publishing System
Posted Jun 19, 2006

Aleratec has announced the first Expandable LightScribe DVD/CD Publishing System. The 1:2 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LX is a standalone 1:1 DVD/CD Duplicator; when connected to your PC via USB 2.0, it becomes a 1:2 DVD/CD Duplicator, a 2-drive external DVD/CD recorder, and with LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling technology it can laser burn silkscreen-quality labels on 2 discs at once, according to Aleratec. This exciting new disc publisher can be easily expanded to a DVD/CD publishing system with double this capacity.

 Since the "Only from Aleratec" Software Suite included supports simultaneous use of up to 4 drives, the 1:2 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LX is easily expanded to a desktop publishing system capable of double capacity by simply plugging in another unit to your PC. Now you have a 1:4 DVD/CD duplicator, a 4-drive DVD/CD recorder, a 4-drive direct-to-disc labeler, and two standalone duplicators when you need them.

LightScribe technology is an integrated system that combines LightScribe enabled DVD/CD recorders with specially coated LightScribe certified media and the powerful Aleratec Disc Publishing Software Suite powered by Droppix, to produce precise, laser-etched, silkscreen-quality labels with superior sharpness and clarity. LightScribe creates great-looking CD and DVD labels right in the drive--no messy markers or additional printing supplies required. Just burn your images or data onto the disc, flip the disc over to the label side, reinsert the disc, and burn a customized label. for LightScribe, a business unit of HP.

Connecting the 1:2 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LX to your computer opens the vast array of truly unique features available only from Aleratec. Using the Special Edition Droppix Software included, you can laser burn two labels simultaneously or you can record two DVD/CD disc creations simultaneously. Even more exciting, you can connect another 1:2 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser Pro LX to your PC and you can simultaneously produce up to four DVD/CD copies, recordings, or clearly labeled Discs. You can even mix copying discs and burning labels at the same time which makes it perfect for one off jobs where the content and the label of each disc is different, or you can burn up to four different discs or four different labels at the same time.
