"..Ultera Systems, today announced another move, immediately positioning the company in the DVD marketplace. Ultera has signed an agreement with Optical Laser Inc. as its national distributor for the company's new DVD-R MultiMaster, the most versatile DVD mastering solution available for short-run DVD duplication.
Ultera's DVD-R array controller allows up to 12 SCSI-based DVD-R drives to be connected to a single host, creating 12 DVD copies in the time it usually takes to record just one, making the Ultera DVD-R MultiMaster the most economical solution to create multiple DVD audio, video or data disks.
Ultera's DVD-R MultiMaster array controller requires only a single SCSI ID to drive up to 12 DVD-R drives, each at the maximum data transfer rate of 1.2 MB per second. The controller synchronizes the duplication process to multiple drives with no performance degradation. Ultera's innovative design features comprehensive monitoring and diagnostics that isolate a suspect drive, cable or array channel interface and automatically disables the affected array channel until the repair is made while all other drives on the array continue to operate unimpeded at full speed.."
