CA, September 12, 2000 - Young Minds, Inc.
(YMi) of Redlands, California has begun shipping
PowerCD Studio, a new version of its controller-based
CD-Recording (CD-R) solution that increases
data throughput rates by up to 600%. The increased
bandwidth allows greatly increased CD-R production
in network and production environments where
large numbers of discs must be recorded.
PowerCD Studio controller is designed for
use with YMi's PASsport disc autoloader, and
can be integrated with existing applications
via CD-Q, YMi's CD-R workflow software, to
form a complete, "lights-out" automated solution.
The PASsport is now shipping with a 12x recordable
drive. Other disc autoloaders are also available.
Studio features data thoughput speeds of up
to 4MB per second - about five to six times
faster than AutoStudio, the product PowerCD
Studio replaces. This increase allows PowerCD
Studio to download a full 650MB disc image
in under three minutes.
as PowerCD Studio's fast data throughput eliminates
the bottleneck from the workstation to the
recorder, CD-Q workflow software eliminates
network bottlenecks by providing users and
System Administrators with full control over
data transfers. Network transfers can be prioritized
and scheduled to take advantage of periods
of low utilization, and coordinated with other
network activities - such as system backups
- to ensure that CD-R jobs are processed efficiently.
