Fremont, CA (May 28, 2004)–Disc Makers recently selected Plextor Corp., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media equipment, to integrate CD/RW and DVD-R drives exclusively into its line of duplicators, as well as for in-house duplication operations. Disc Makers’ customers will now, at no extra charge, get the benefit of the industry’s fastest disc duplication throughput through the integration of Plextor’s CD/DVD optical recording drives.
Disc Makers has integrated Plextor burners into its complete line of Reflex Series manual duplicators and Elite Series automated CD and DVD duplication and printing systems. The Plextor drives include the PlexWriter 52/24/52A CD-R/RW drive with 52X CD-R and the dual-format PX-712A DVD±R/RW drive with 12X DVD+R, 8X DVD-R, and 48X CD-R. In addition to fast recording speeds, all Plextor drives feature very high data throughput, making volume applications like duplication more productive and cost-effective. Plextor drives also are compatible with a wide range of CD and DVD media, giving customers more flexibility.
Disc Makers’ facility in Pennsauken, NJ, which offers a full range of media duplication, replication, printing, and packaging services, is being completely outfitted with Plextor CD and DVD drives. “The quality of Plextor’s drives is so exceptional that our company decided to use them in-house as well as resell them to our customers,” explained Tony van Veen, vice president of sales & marketing for Disc Makers. “By combining the most reliable drives with the highest quality duplicators, our top-of-the line systems will be capable of reproducing up to 400,000 discs over their lifetime. Plextor is a company that consistently introduces drives with faster recording speeds, a critical factor in our business where every second of recording time counts.”
“Working with Disc Makers is a major opportunity for Plextor to expand the reach of our sales channels into new markets,” said Howard Wing, vice president of sales and marketing for Plextor. “With millions of catalogs sent out to corporate users, music and video professionals, churches, and schools each year, Disc Makers is the number one direct seller of CD/DVD duplicators. As the exclusive supplier of CD/DVD drives to Disc Maker, we foresee robust sales resulting from this partnership.”
