Young Minds Introduces DVD Studio for DVD-Recording under UNIX, Linux, and Windows NT Operating Systems

IIM 2000, Jacob Javits Center, New York, NY, April 9, 2000 - Young Minds, Inc. (YMi) of Redlands, California introduced its new DVD Studio DVD-Recording solution at AIIM 2000. DVD Studio is available now and works with the Pioneer DVR-S201 DVD-R Drive in all major open system environments. These include most UNIX operating systems, such as Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, Tru64, as well as Linux and Microsoft Windows NT. Key applications for DVD Studio include archival and distribution of large multimedia files, document imaging, GIS, and similar industries and applications that need to cost-effectively archive and/or distribute large data sets.

Jim Bolander, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, announced that the DVD Studio is also available with a CD-R drive to allow customers to choose the best media for each data set they need to record.

"DVD Studio provides the speed and 'horsepower' to run the DVR-S201 without any glitches. DVD Studio's unique controller-based architecture lets the recorder operate at roughly the equivalent of 9x CD speeds without affecting operation of the host computer. Considering the higher cost of DVD media, users will appreciate the assurance that DVD Studio provides, particularly when DVD Studio is attached to a server running a myriad of daemons and network tasks. By including an 8x or 12x CD-R drive, users also have the option of creating CD-R discs for cost-effective storage of smaller volumes of data."

A future implementation of DVD Studio, scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2000 will attach to the Pioneer DRM-7000 FlexLibrary with one or more DVD-R drives. Designed as a high-end production system, a key application for this DVD Studio version will be as a media conversion center. Once conversion is compete, the system can be used as an on-line library. Bolander indicated that Young Minds will continue to evolve the system by adding greater functionality: "In the third quarter, we will offer a complete, turnkey read/write jukebox solution that combines the DRM-7000, DVD Studio, and Smart Storage Jukeman jukebox management software. This is truly a best-of-breed product that will be the leading high-end storage and archival solution for DVD."
