Octave Systems’ 11-drive Copy Master II ($1,549) can provide 1-to-11, 1-to-9, 1-to-7, 1-to-5, 1-to-3 and 1-to-1 duplication, depending on the user’s needs, and can burn up to 16x on DVD+R and DVD-R formats, and CDs up to 48x. Not only does it duplicate standard 120mm CDs and DVDs, but also several of the business-card shaped discs and Mini-CD/DVD formats.
The 10-drive Date Safe Copy Master II Pro 10 ($1,595) features intuitive, stand-alone operation and a front-bay 160 hard drive that can be removed and locked away in a secure location. The Pro 10 can provide 1-to-10, 1-to-8, 1-to-6 and 1-to-4 duplication, depending on the user’s needs, and can duplicate DVDs up to 16x, 8.5GB dual-layered DVDs up to 4x and CDs up to 48x.
Both models include the Fast Copy feature, which will open all trays simultaneously with the touch of one button. Other new features for both models include a hard disk drive partition naming feature, which allows the user to name the images stored in the hard drive partitions; password-protected user accounts; a larger capacity 128MB buffer memory; auto-counter technology, which keeps a record of the total number of discs copied for each project; load and copy, for quick copy jobs; and new Copy/Reset/Speed/Source buttons.
The Copy button allows the user to quickly and conveniently begin the duplication process. The Test button tests the copy process without actually writing to the media. The Speed button sets the speed of the copy. The Source button changes the master source of the information the user wants copied from the DVD-ROM or CD-ROM to the hard disk.
