MediaFORM, manufacturer of CD-R/DVD-R publishing solutions for the audio/video and data industries, recently received two industry awards for its exclusive CD-R technologies.
MediaFORM's SmartDRIVE(TM) technology received recognition from the third annual Global Anticounterfeiting Awards. The Global Anticounterfeiting Awards applaud efforts made by public entities, trade associations and companies to battle counterfeiting.
``MediaFORM's SmartDRIVE encryption deters counterfeiting and proves that MediaFORM places traceability above sales and `pirate profits,''' said Lew Kontnik, Authentication News®, co-sponsors of the Awards with the Global Anticounterfeiting Group. ``We commend MediaFORM for their outstanding job of fighting the explosive problem of counterfeiting in an industry that has grown to almost $1 trillion a year.''
MediaFORM was recognized for its automatic electronic watermark feature within all systems that encrypts an invisible fingerprint on each CD. The encoded information includes burn date and time, a user definable system number and the ID number of the drive that wrote the disc. These features can be read back on any SmartDRIVE-equipped MediaFORM duplicator.
MediaFORM's REFLECTION CD-5121(TM) also earned industry recognition as an eMedia Editor's Choice Award recipient. eMedia is a technology and business magazine that reviews CD-ROM and CD-R in network and data storage applications. Two of the features that led eMedia to select the REFLECTION CD-5121 are the product's one-touch intuitive menuing and its enhanced 16X drive speed.
``REFLECTION's extensive diagnostic, disc-counting capability and PC connectivity give it versatility not always found in the single-disc set,'' said Stephen Nathans, editor of eMedia. ``It's also a nice complement to MediaFORM's diverse line of CD-R duplication and production systems.''
REFLECTION provides one-to-one duplication with an easy four-button navigation menu and, when PC-enabled, it incorporates MediaFORM's exclusive SmartDRIVE anti-piracy protection. With 16X recording speed for both audio and data formats, REFLECTION is the fastest CD-R duplicator on the market. The 16X-drive speed improves CD-R throughput by approximately 33% when compared to the current industry standard 12X CD-R speed.
MediaFORM's long-standing reputation for quality products, coupled with its advanced technologies throughout the CD-R and DVD-R industries, has led to an install base of more than 16,000 units worldwide.
