MF Digital's New Desktop "Assistant" Defines New Multi-Function
Product Segment in the Duplication System Industry.

June 7, 2005 - E. Farmingdale, NY --- Creating a new product segment in the CD/DVD duplication system industry, MF Digital has introduced Baxter, the first truly multi-functional desktop assistant. Incorporating software normally found in MF Digital's industrial grade CD/DVD duplication systems in a small desktop device, Baxter offers a multitude of unique duplication and storage applications at the touch of a key.

Features now embedded in MF Digital's Scribe PC software empower Baxter to accomplish audio/video/data duplication, PC hard disc back-up, MP3/WMA ripping as well as image archiving. All are facilitated through the desktop device which is actually only slightly larger than a phone. With a CD and DVD combination drive, Baxter provides automatic, hands-free duplication with a 25 disc capacity, and write speeds for CD at 40X, and for DVD at 16X. With Baxter’s Software Development Kit (SDK), a user can write their own applications.

Weighing only seven pounds, and measuring only 15.25" deep, 9" wide and 7.25" high, Baxter puts multi-function duplication and storage right on a user’s desktop, bringing formally only large system capabilities to a wider market. The compact device simply connects to a PC through a USB port and its own power cable.

"For so many reasons, Baxter redefines CD/DVD duplication by putting it right on the desktop, without requiring towers or large apparatus. Given its back-up and archiving applications, Baxter now extends the value of disc duplication for small businesses, independents, prosumers and even consumers, at a reasonable price point," according to John McGrath, Eastern Sales Manager of MF Digital.

"The whole notion of incorporating all these applications into one desktop duplicating system really revolutionizes the product category. Having the ability to automate many everyday tasks such as back-up, or ripping audio CDs to MP3/WMA illustrates Baxter's versatility and usefulness in almost every business setting," says McGrath.

Baxter carries an initial manufacturer's suggested price of US $1095.00. Shipping is expected to begin June 15.

MF Digital is known as a leading manufacturer of DVD / CD duplication, publishing and printing equipment for the professional audio and video, corporate, church ministry and government markets. Based in E. Farmingdale, NY, the company has been developing duplication solutions for over a decade. Additional information about Baxter may be found at www.mfdigital.com/baxter.html
