Posted Aug 19, 2007

Aleratec, Inc., leading developer and manufacturer of Aleratec Award Winning "Prosumers' Choice" solutions for the Blu-ray, DVD/CD, USB duplicating, and DVD/CD publishing markets is now shipping its new 1:8 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLX that can simultaneously produce up to 8 DVD/CD copies, recordings, or 8 clearly labeled LightScribe DVDs or CDs with high performance SATA data rates. The 1:8 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLX, another disc publishing first only from Aleratec, incorporates the latest high speed DVD/CD recording technology and can make DVD copies at up to 20x or CD copies at up to 48x. The recorders also support DVD-RAM and 8.5GB Double Layer technologies. The 1:8 DVD/CD Tower Publisher has eSATA connections to your computer for the most stable duplicating process. For those that do not have eSATA ports on their computer, a dual channel eSATA host adapter is included FREE with purchase. The powerful Aleratec Disc Publishing software suite is the ideal all in one package for music, photos, video, data, and backup has Windows Vista support and is also included FREE with purchase.

"With the 1:8 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLX, we have doubled the capacity and increased recording speeds by 25% for the highest throughput Aleratec LightScribe tower publisher. The 1:4 DVD/CD Tower Publisher LS was the first tower publisher in the industry and the double capacity 1:8 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLX is another first, only from Aleratec," stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO. "For those applications that require even more capacity, the 1:8 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLX is scalable to 1:16 by adding another tower publisher and connecting them to an optional host adapter installed in a server class computer, doubling capacity again. Prosumer users demand the best performance available, and, with 20x DVD recording speeds, scalable capacity tower publishers, and improved disc creation and labeling software suite, we believe we have exceeded their expectations."

With an optional 64 bit, 4-Port PCI-X eSATA Host Adapter, the 1:8 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLX is scalable to a 1:16 by purchasing an additional Aleratec 1:8 tower publisher and connecting it to a server class computer. Now you can make up to 16 simultaneous copies or 16 clearly labeled discs in one operation.

"Whether small businesses want to burn a few discs or many, complement them with a descriptive title, content list, imagery and company logo on the label, the Aleratec 1:8 DVD/CD Tower Publisher HLX scales to meet their needs."
