NitroAV Announces AfterBurner 23 GB DVD Burner

NitroAV has introduced a new line of FireWire 800 DVD burners called the AfterBurner.

The AfterBurner series burns rewritable or write-once, read many (WORM) Blue Laser DVDs that store 23 GB per disc, and are currently being offered in a 2 bay configuration (one bay includes the DVD burner, while the empty bay can be used to house a hard drive). From NitroAV:

The high capacity and high performance AfterBurner drives are designed specifically for professional audio/video - editing/authoring, storage applications, graphic design and medical imaging, e-mail archival, enterprise content management and multimedia projects. The DVD media features a durable, airtight structure to prevent dust particles from coming in contact with the drive mechanism and disc surface, increasing durability and reliability for critical applications in professional and industrial settings but still offering the convenience of removable optical storage. This optical solution allows for high-speed random access of files, making it suitable for both near-line and archival storage applications

The line-up includes 2 Bay and 4 Bay customizable external FireWire 800/1394b configurations, as well as a internal SCSI version for Plug-N-Play integration with latest Macintosh OSX, WINDOWS and Linux operating systems. In addition to the 23GB per disc optical storage capacity it features up-to 11/MB second sustained read and 9MB/second write transfer speeds. This offers a quantum leap in performance over existing optical storage formats, with an archival life of up to 50 years.

The AfterBurner Series drives leverage several technological advancements to achieve their unprecedented 23GB storage capacity and up-to 11MB/second read and 9MB/second write speeds, including:

Pricing for the AfterBurner starts at US$3199 for the 2 bay FireWire 800 model, and you can find more information on the product line at NitroAV's Web site.
