Based on fourth generation key components
with high integration levels, the CDD 2600 has an entire new CD mechanism
to accommodate the form factor. This means improved quality and reliability,
while maintaining backwards compatibility with the application software
of its widely-supported predecessors.
The CDD 2600 is the ideal tool for
publishing large amounts of information in compact form on CD. The new
Incremental Packet Writing function will make the CDD 2600 attractive to
the general desktop PC user for data archiving and data interchange. CD-Recordable
discs can be recorded at double speed, and in all standard formats. Since
the discs are recorded in accordance with the Orange Book specification,
they can be read on all CD players.
. Up to 740 Mbytes of data-storage.
. Fast random access to archive data in numerous market areas from graphics
· CD-Recordable is: low cost per Mbyte (compact) removable storage,
with data integrity for long term storage.
· Large quantities of incremental data can be recorded
from the desktop PC on to CD. Once the session is finalized, information
can be read with every CD-ROM player. Ideal for multimedia or (home) office
CD Title Creation
· Software distribution in CD-format: extremely powerful
in data-intensive environments such as CAD/CAM.
· In-house corporate publishing - an added advantage if confidentiality
is an issue, or limited copies are required.
· Master discs for CD authoring studios CD-ROM (XA), CD-I and CD-Audio.
· CD-format database information (on demand) e.g. in the medical,
legal and education fields.
The SCSI interface allows the CDD 2600 to support software systems
from MS-DOS and Windows to Mac and Unix * . Backwards compatibility
with the second generation CD-Recorder allows for continuous growth in
application programs. These software packages give users the possibility
to archive, distribute or create their own CDs: CD-ROM (XA), CD Bridge
Multi-Session, CD-I and CD-Audio from their desktop.
of Computer Platforms
The large 1 Mb buffer inside the unit (which serves as caching
function), combined with the host-selectable recording speed (150 Kbyte/sec
normal or 300 Kbyte/sec) opens up the possibility of using the CD2600 with
Multi-Tasking Operating Systems, or of increasing efficiency by 'formatting-on-the-fly'.
Even on slow PCs a local SCSI device fast enough to feed the data to the
recorder can be used by exploiting the unique 'Direct Local Copy' function.
The CDD 2600 allows random access to large databases, making
it ideal for reading and writing information in every CD format: CD-ROM
(XA), CD-Bridge Multi-Session, CD-I and CD-Audio. Compared with conventional
CD devices, the transfer rate is twice as fast for writing, and up to 6.5
times as fast for reading. The optical linear-access mechanism meets the
standards demanded by professional data processing environments in reliability,
accuracy, and durability. The actuator, based on the 3-beam push-pull tracking
and read-out principle ensures reliable data access over a wide tolerance
