Press Release - RoboRacer SDK



Aleratec Releases its Free RoboRacer SDK for Automated DVD/CD Publishing


Chatsworth, CA January 19, 2010 - Aleratec Inc., leading developer and manufacturer of "Prosumers' Choice" solutions for the USB, Flash, HDD, Blu-ray, DVD CD, duplicating, and DVD/CD publishing markets, announced today its RoboRacer SDK for software developers that wish to integrate Aleratec's DVD/CD RoboRacer LS Duplex into their applications.

The DVD/CD RoboRacer LS Duplex SDK allows software developers to integrate all of the RoboRacer's unique features into existing software applications. The SDK is a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) based Application Program Interface (API) which uses the CDECL calling convention, and includes DLL import libraries for C# and C++.

"We're excited to make this RoboRacer SDK available," stated Perry Solomon, Aleratec's president and CEO. "Software Developers have been looking for a way to integrate key features of the DVD/CD RoboRacer LS Duplex for a number of years and we are pleased to offer this SDK in response to their requests. The DVD/CD RoboRacer LS Duplex is ideal for medical records production environments where customers are looking for a fully automated device that can "Burn, Auto-Flip and LightScribe Label" discs automatically."

With LightScribe there is no printer! Direct-to-disc labels are laser burned, crystal clear and professional looking. No ink or other costly printing supplies are required. Aleratec Direct-to-Disc Publishing Systems utilize LightScribe enabled DVD CD recorders and specially coated LightScribe media to produce precise, laser-etched, disc labels with superior sharpness and clarity.

LightScribe discs can be pre-labeled, for example, by department or classification level and appended with more detail later. With the added advantage of color coding, disc content can be immediately recognized, organized and properly managed. Aleratec's DVD/CD RoboRacer LS Duplex is ideally suited for production environments, where multiple discs are being produced in a fully automated environment.

Key Features of the Aleratec DVD/CD RoboRacer LS Duplex include:

  • Disc Capacity: Up to 100 Discs
  • Drives: 2 Aleratec designed 20x DVDRW
  • Writing Speed: DVD 20x /CD 40x

  • Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
  • DICOM PACS
  • Electronic Health Records (EHR)
  • Backup and Archival Storage


  • To help minimize development time, the DVD/CD RoboRacer LS Duplex SDK comes with a sample application that provides both a very simple example of how to best interface with the DVD/CD RoboRacer LS Duplex in code and how it can also be used to control the RoboRacer with little or no additional code in an existing application.
