AV Pro Cube RipBox Offers Hands-Free Ripping and Burning
For years, optical discs have provided people with an easy and cost-effective way to back up photos, music, and documents from their personal computers. But what if you need to load a large number of discs back on to the computer? Doing this by hand would take a tremendous amount of time! Fortunately, the AV Pro Cube RipBox is here to help.
The RipBox is actually two machines in one. The main function of the machine is to automatically rip discs when connected to a personal computer. Start by placing a stack of audio CDs or data discs in the hopper and fire it up. The machine’s robotic arm will pick a disc, load it into the drive, and transfer the information to a folder on your hard drive.
When finished, it will unload the disc, place it in the output bin, and repeat the process until all discs have finished. This is a very convenient way to let the machine do the work for you! While it runs automatically, the operator is free to work on other tasks.
The RipBox includes free ImgBurn software, and is also available with an upgraded software package called BPR2000 Lite. The software runs under Windows XP, Vista, and 7 (32-bit or 64-bit). It allows for automated audio ripping, data ripping, and archival back-up of files.
The other function of the tower is an automatic CD duplicator and automatic DVD duplicator. The machine features one reader (source) drive and one burner (target) drive. The burner records DVD-R discs at up to 24X and CD-R discs at up to 48X. The AV Pro RipBox can hold up to 25 blank discs at a time, and it even supports multiple masters!
For example, let’s say that you have three different master CDs to copy, and you need five copies of each disc. Simply stack the master on top of the blanks and load all eighteen discs into the input bin. The machine will check the first disc, identify it as the master, and load it into the reader drive.
It will then burn the five blank copies and place those in the output bin. When it gets to the next master disc, the machine will unload the first master and pop in the second one! The whole process runs automatically without any user input. You can even queue up a CD job, a DVD job, and another CD job in the input bin!
As you can see, the AV Pro Cube RipBox packs a lot of functionality into a small package. The input bin slides back into the machine when not in use for easy, compact storage. Whether you are duplicating CD and DVD discs or loading large amounts of content on to a computer, the AV Pro Cube RipBox and its robotic loading arm will make the task faster and easier.
UPDATE: The AVPro Cube RipBox duplicator has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available.
