TC 8000 Duplication Controller
E - TrueCopy System Technology
All TC-8000 series systems include TrueCopy Technologytm
capability. The combination of a TC-8000 series
tower with TrueCopytm recorders creates a system
that is more powerful than ordinary duplication
systems that rely just on enhanced drive technology
alone. This more powerful combination of both
TrueCopytm drives and a TrueCopy Systemtm controller
results in a far superior duplication system.
The additional features provided
by TrueCopy System Technologytm benefit both the
duplication and quality control process, allowing
more accurate copies to be made much more easily.
Almost all of these features are available exclusively
on duplication systems enabled with TrueCopy System
Several of these features
are documented in this manual. Other features
are working silently behind the scenes and are
not mentioned further. Currently supported TrueCopy
System Technologytm features include:
Places an Orange Book compliant electronic watermark
on the recorded media. Every disc is optionally
marked so that it can be traced back to the recorder
that created it. This electronic water mark can
be viewed on the TC-8800 using the TrueRID Scan
function. This function can be turned ON/OFF in
the Setup|Duplication Options menu.
Displays the RID (electronic water mark) on a
recorded disc. This allows a disc to be tracked
to the recorder that created it. This function
will request a CD be inserted, and will then scan
for RID codes on recorded media. If no RID is
present then "No RID Found" will be
displayed. If an RID is present it will be displayed
on the LCD. The RID will contain a drive manufacturer
code and the last ten digits of the recorder's
unique electronic serial number. A CD with an
RID code can be traced to the exact drive that
recorded it. To find the electronic serial number
of TrueCopytm drives select the function Utilities|System
Information|True RID Info in the menu.
Allows the user to check the quality of recorded
media. TrueQAtm scan will scan recorded media
checking for uncorrectable C1 and C2 errors. Uncorrectable
C1 errors are present on all CD media, and are
normal. However, uncorrectable C2 errors lead
to bad data, or clicks & pops on audio CDs.
When scanning a CD, if there is any count other
than zero (0) for C2 or an unusually large number
of C1 errors consider this disc to be of unsatisfactory
Used on TrueCopytm recorders to adjust laser power
over the entire disc surface to maintain and enhance
recording quality from the beginning to the end
of the recorded disc. This feature is particularly
important for high speed recording.
Allows the TC-8000 system (when used with TrueCopy
recorders) to scan audio CDs for defects on masters
likely to cause a click or pop on copies before
copies are made. This scanning happens automatically
while reading the master CD.
More TrueCopy System Technology features will
be coming in the future so please check regularly
for the latest firmware releases.
