Kenwood's UCR415WB includes Zen technology which provides high performance from the beginning to the end of the disc

Kenwood Corporation has always stressed innovation as the means to provide customers with the best possible products. In keeping with this spirit, Kenwood has blended innovation with technology to create the Kenwood MULTI BEAM™ 52X CD-ROM drive. MULTI BEAM™ drives combine Zen’s TrueX™ technology with Kenwood’s Precision Track™ hardware to produce the fastest CD-ROM drive on earth.

Now, CD-ROM speed and performance have reached a level never before thought possible with the revolutionary MULTI BEAM™ 52X CD-ROM drive. With Zen’s TrueX™ technology and Kenwood’s Precision Track hardware, it’s the only drive in the world that delivers true 52X speed across the entire disc, sustaining a data transfer rate of 7.5MBps. This speed is comparable to most fast hard drives and faster than most removable optical storage devices available today.

Zen TrueX™ technology is a component set that includes optics, detection devices and a high speed ASIC. Drives made with TrueX™ technology illuminate multiple tracks simultaneously, read them in parallel, and process the data through the custom ASIC. Kenwood’s Precision Track hardware includes the world’s first 7-beam pick-up. Kenwood has more than a decade of experi-ence in the manufacture of high precision optical pick-ups for use with audio CDs, Mini Discs, and laser discs. This experience played a vital role in the development of the worlds first 7-beam pick-up that forms the heart of the MULTI BEAM™ 52X.

Until now, performance improvements in CD-ROMs have been implemented by reading one track at a time and increasing the rotational speed of the disc at a Constant Angular Velocity (CAV). This method only delivers very small incremental performance gains, introduces disc wobble, noise and vibration, and never maintains the promised transfer rate. In contrast, Kenwood’s MULTI BEAM™ drives use Constant Linear Velocity (CLV), with Zen’s TrueX™ technology, Kenwood’s Precision Track hardware to read and process multiple tracks in parallel. These drives break through existing limitations to deliver the highest performance at more disc tolerant rotational speeds.

Your CD based applications and data now get the highest performance available, from the begin-ning to the end of the disc. Innovative Technology powered by Zen available only from Kenwood.
