“Our recent introduction of the Aleratec 1:11 CD Super Copy Tower for
maximizing speed and throughput in CD duplication has been very well
received. Our Prosumer users naturally want faster duplicating speeds and
increased capacity for duplicating DVDs and with the 1:11 DVD/CD Super Copy
Tower’s 16x speed, we have successfully created the fastest, most
economical way to duplicate very large volumes of DVDs. For those with the
need for speed, there is nothing even close to the 1:11 DVD/CD Super Copy
Tower at any price,” stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO. “This is a
natural next generation of stand alone Super Copy Tower duplicators with a
level of throughput available only from Alera Technologies.”

The 1:11 DVD/CD Super Copy Tower incorporates a 80GB hard disk drive that
can store up to 16 images of your frequently used DVDs for making up to 11
quick copies of any one of these images simultaneously. This powerful
duplicating system also can sense if there is a readable source DVD in any
of the DVD Recorders and can use this as a source disc to make up to 10
simultaneous copies without loading to the hard disk drive.

The advanced DVD/CD recording technology in the 1:11 DVD/CD Super Copy
Tower is the highest speed available. It will copy at up to 16x on both
DVD+R and DVD-R media. The rewrite speeds are up to 8x with DVD+RW and 6x
with DVD-RW media. The DVD read speed is 16x. The CD recording speeds are
CD-R 48x and CD-RW 24x. The 1:11 DVD/CD Super Copy Tower also has 8.5GB
Double Layer technology supporting 4x copies 80% larger in capacity than
conventional DVD discs.

11 copies simultaneously, of a typical DVD in about 5 minutes With the low
Estimated Street Price of $2,299, the new DVD/CD Super Copy Tower is ideal
for Prosumer, Corporate, Government and Education applications.

An easy to use, two button Cruise Control duplicator controller is all new
and has a compact two level menu structure with the 5 most used duplicator
functions (Copy, Compare, Verify, Erase, Test) readily available in the
first level. It has a large and bright back-lighted display that shows the
number of discs loaded and monitors the copy process. The new Cruise
Control has diagnostics and copy controls to satisfy the needs of even the
most discerning professional user, including a unique new copy counter that
can be set to count the total number of copies produced in a production run.
