The 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini USB 3.0 gives users the power to make hard drive copies and access hard drives quickly and easily with one lightweight, portable device. Though it weighs in at less than a pound, it is both a powerful standalone hard disk duplicator and a versatile HDD docking station.

Since it is standalone, there is no need to tie up any computer running complicated duplication software. A simple one-button operation creates perfect clones and backup drives, and the fast sector-by-sector copy process includes partition and boot sector information. Users can connect and remove drives in seconds with the quick-connect hard disk drive bays, allowing users to quickly and easily mount or dismount either drive.

aleratec_15_blu-ray_tower_publisher.jpgAleratec continues to make Blu-ray duplication faster and more efficient. Today it adds a 15-target standalone Blu-ray duplicator to its award-winning line of optical disc Lightscribe duplicators. This professional grade device allows users to simultaneously copy up to a whopping 15 Blu-ray, DVD or CD discs, or laser-etch 15 DVD or CD LightScribe labels, at a time.

The Aleratec 1:15 Blu-ray/DVD/CD Tower Publisher SLS features cutting-edge 12X Blu-ray writers as well as a generous 1TB built-in hard drive.

This new standalone duplicator also includes a dedicated Source drive, allowing the device to make disc-to-disc copies without sacrificing any write capacity. A user can burn the same number of discs whether burning from the hard drive or from another source disc.

The unit can be connected to a PC via USB 2.0 cable for access to the duplicator’s internal hard drive. In PC-Connect mode, users can simply drag and drop disc image and label files directly into the duplicator and be running duplication jobs in no time. The duplicator’s simple, intuitive interface includes "Fast Keys" that give instant access to common functions.

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.


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.

aleratec_robojet_disc_printing.jpgAleratec today announced a new disc-printing solution that transforms a compatible Epson inkjet printer into a robotic system that prints up to 100 Blu-ray, DVD or CD labels automatically.

Aleratec is renowned for creating professional grade products at consumer prices. It continues this tradition with the RoboJet Disc Autoloader, an economical product that is easy to both use and install, and which completely automates the printing process for up to 100 high-resolution Blu-ray, DVD or CD discs when paired with a compatible Epson inkjet printer (not included). Users of this system can load up to 100 inkjet-printable discs in the RoboJet Disc Autoloader and start fully automated print runs using the included Aleratec Autoloader software. For added convenience, new discs can be added and completed discs can be removed while a job is in progress.

Customers wanting to print quantities of full-color, photo-quality discs will find that Aleratec’s disc feed system takes just minutes to install. The disc tray simply replaces the printer’s paper feed tray. The powerful Aleratec Autoloader software included with the RoboJet Disc Printing System is also simple to install and makes it easy to optimize operation. Additionally, users are free to use the label-making software of their choice to print labels since the RoboJet will work with just about any popular inkjet printing software, including Epson Print CD, Nero Cover Designer and Acoustica Label Maker.
