Aleratec Inc., leading developer and manufacturer of "Prosumers' Choice" solutions for the Blu-ray, DVD/CD, USB duplicating, and DVD/CD publishing markets, announces the next generation of its 1:2 Desktop LightScribe Publishing system, the innovative new Aleratec 1:2 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser LS, High Speed Edition. When connected to a PC via USB 2.0, the Aleratec 1:2 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser LS, High Speed Edition, is a 1:2 DVD/CD Duplicator that enables small and medium businesses to simply, conveniently and affordably burn or LightScribe label two CDs or DVDs at once. The new DVD/CD recorders are the fastest available, burning DVDs at up to 20x write speeds.

"Making high performance desktop DVD/CD disc publishing truly affordable and simple for SMB and SOHO customers has always been a goal for Aleratec," said Perry Solomon, President and CEO of Aleratec. "The Aleratec 1:2 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser LS, High Speed Edition with two LightScribe drives effectively cuts disc copying time and disc labeling time in half compared to single recording drive solutions, and it is 25% faster than its predecessor. All businesses can benefit by having custom DVDs and CDs custom labeled with vivid silkscreen quality. With the Aleratec 1:2 DVD/CD Copy Cruiser LS, High Speed Edition, businesses are empowered with total control of the disc publishing process: from disc content to custom labels to quantities and schedules."

LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling is an integrated system that combines LightScribe enabled DVD/CD recorders with specially coated LightScribe media and the powerful Aleratec Disc Publishing Software Suite to produce precise, laser-etched, silkscreen quality labels with superior sharpness and clarity. LightScribe creates professional-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, and burn a customized label. Small and medium businesses can burn a few discs or many, and label each with descriptive titles, content lists, graphics or company logos.

"Small businesses look for affordability, quality and convenience. LightScribe delivers on all fronts," said Kent Henscheid, Marketing Manager for LightScribe, a business unit of HP. "The Aleratec LightScribe publishing system enables businesses to create impressive and professional-looking CD and DVD labels right in the office."
