Young Minds Inc. Releases StudioX for CD/DVD Recording: Big Performance, Small Size, Supports Multiple Autoloaders

Redlands, CA, April 4, 2001 -- Young Minds, Inc. (YMi) of Redlands, California today released the newest member of its growing CD/DVD Studio family of CD- and DVD-Recording products, StudioX. StudioX is designed for high output environments and applications, such as check imaging, Storage Solution Providers (SSP), e-commerce, and satellite imaging. StudioX products include CD StudioX and DVD StudioX. Both CD and DVD versions can support up to four disc autoloaders to maximize production capacity.

StudioX is a high performance hardware/ software solution, controlling one or more disc autoloaders with up to four 16x CD or DVD recordable drives and disc label printers. StudioX, with its ability to attach to any workstation or server running a UNIX, Linux, or Windows NT operating system, continues Young Minds' twelve year history of providing the industry's most extensive line of cross-platform CD-R and DVD-R data storage solutions.

"With StudioX, we have packed all the performance and reliability of our large, rack-mounted MPS4+ system into a desktop package that is one-tenth the size," said Jim Bolander, Young Minds' VP of Sales. "Many of our customers told us they loved our technology but preferred not having to allocate floor space. Despite its small size, StudioX delivers fast and reliable disc recording. In essence, you only have to allocate space in your floorplanning for an autoloader because any of the PAS disc autoloaders that it runs fit right on top of it."

Matthew Hornbeck, President of Young Minds, spoke of StudioX performance: "We have been able to download 650MB of data -- a full CD -- in 90 seconds to StudioX. With four 16x CD-R drives, StudioX can record over 700 full CDs in just 24 hours - about one half terabyte of data."

Founded in 1989, Young Minds, Inc. (YMi) provides a complete line of network capable CD and DVD Recording solutions that work with UNIX, Linux, and Windows NT operating systems. YMi pioneered CD-Recording and CD-ROM mass storage in the UNIX market, and continues to deliver the most innovative solutions that are reliable, cost-effective and easy to use.
