UK-based CD and DVD duplication equipment provider CD-Writer.com has launched a new duplication tower with the ability to copy up to 21 discs at a time. Marketed by CD-Writer's StorDigital brand, the new tower will fill a gap in the market for companies whose duplication needs have outstripped their capacity. Called the StorDigital SD21, the new machine can be bought as a plug and play device or built up module-by-module by buying the base unit and adding disc burning towers to it.
The new machine is able to duplicate up to 21 CDs or DVDs at a time and is able to copy CDs at 48x (48x the amount of time required to play the CD) and DVDs at 16x (16x the amount of time required to play the CD). It also features a built in auto disc counter, allowing the user to keep track of the number of discs burned as part of any given project. While no PC connection is required, an optional USB PC or Mac connector can be supplied for communication with a computer or other device. The SD21 can also feature an 80, 160 or 200 GB hard drive if required, allowing the user to create a library of information before mass CD duplication.
