mfdigital_eventcd.pngMF Digital, a long time leader in Live Event Recording announces its newest live event digital recorder and CD / DVD duplicator in-one – the 5200 Series ‘EventCD’.

The new EventCD combination recorder/duplicator system allows easy recording from virtually any mixer or other analog or digital source right to the “EventCD” hard disk and then almost instantaneous output to two and up to forty-two disc copies at once via its modular expansion approach. This powerful and easy to use system is ideally suited for the recording of church and school events, seminars, lectures, concerts, legal depositions, or any application where multiple audio recordings are instantly needed.

“Unlike the traditional CD recorders we see today, with the EventCD you can add and remove content and even include pre-recorded content like a run-out track. You can set and change your tracks markers, span longer recording across multiple discs and do so at any point and in any number. ”, according to John McGrath, US Sales manager, MF Digital. Mr. McGrath went on to say, “… and unlike virtually all CD recorders, the EventCD is also a very capable, and expandable, CD and DVD copier.”

The EventCD can record over 650 hours of uncompressed CD quality sound directly to the system’s hard drive. The user simply records the event or performance to the hard disk, sets the desired Start IDs or track points, optionally edits or sets one or more span points for longer recordings exceeding the capacity of a single CD, and then submits the job. Within three minutes of the event’s conclusion, the user will have multiple copies of the event. It’s a simple to use powerful system that can be expanded to suit any need.

In a move that will help protect documents, records, photographs and other digital data for up to 1,000 years, Xerox Corporation announced that all of its DVD Duplicators now can copy content onto specialized DVDs that are designed to last for centuries.

As more businesses and individuals store content on digital mediums, such as CDs, hard drives, flash drives and servers, there is greater potential for content to inadvertently get erased or corrupted. With this in mind, Xerox , through a licensing agreement with Vinpower Digital, will enable all Xerox DVD Duplicators to copy digital content onto the long lasting Vinpower M-DISC 4.7GB recordable media.

Different from traditional DVDs, the M-DISC utilizes an inorganic stone-like material on the write layer that is extremely resistant to heat, light, humidity, and oxidation, leading causes of data loss and content corruption on conventional DVDs. When tested by the U.S. Department of Defense Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division, the M-DISC was the only media out of five competing brands to retain the data burned onto it without degradation, even when subject to the highest degree of ultraviolet rays and inclement weather.

As more office workers use micro secure digital (SD) cards to store data on portable electronic devices such as mobile phones, the need to copy memory cards is growing. Xerox Corporation, through a licensing agreement with Vinpower Digital, today introduced a line of standalone, high-speed SD/MicroSD duplicators that eliminates the need for adapters, and makes it easier to create multiple copies of any SD or MicroSD memory card.

xerox_microsd_duplicators.jpg

Until now, duplicating MicroSD cards, which are about the size of a fingernail, required a special adaptor. Making multiple copies of the cards was time consuming because each card had to be inserted individually into a personal computer to copy. The Xerox SD/MicroSD Duplicator eliminates the need for adaptors by providing both a standard size SD slot as well as a slot for the much smaller MicroSD.
