Jupiter, FL (2009-03-25) – GEAR® Software, a leading maker of professional premastering software and developer tools for CD and DVD recording, today released GEAR PRO Mastering Edition 8.0

GEAR PRO 8 is a powerful premastering solution for software title development, audio, video and ROM projects. The new GEAR PRO 8.0 enables users to convert a DDP image to a CD or DVD, i.e. create a check disc, in order to verify that the DDP contents is an exact copy of the original project that the user will transfer to a replication facility.

The new release enables the user to target multiple recorders, and to create multiple copies of a CD or DVD on each recorder. "Title developers, software companies, authoring facilities and replicators need a reliable, versatile software tool for creating DDP images and GEAR certainly does that," said Michael Szabo, Manager of Professional Products Support for GEAR Software. "This new release improves on GEAR's time-tested technology by adding the ability to create a check disc on optical media, and also to duplicate multiple copies of discs on a PC set-up."
