Luminex Receives Editor's Choice Award by EMedia Magazine for HOTfolders Automated CD and DVD Archiving and Data Distribution Software

Riverside, CA, March 30, 2000 - Luminex' HOTfolders software has received the highly revered Editor's Choice award by EMedia Magazine. HOTfolders automated archiving and data distribution software operates in conjunction with the industry leading Luminex DVD-Power, CDR-Power, and Power-Press product lines.

"HOTfolders is a brilliant innovation" according to David Doering of EMedia Magazine. "Combined with the reliable Linux operating system, it is a killer combination for archiving. Not only is this a strong contender in the prepress area, but it could be the champ for data storage in most markets."

HOTfolders is a unique server-based software product for automating the time consuming process for data archiving and distribution. The product provides powerful capabilities with simple tools for administrators to create a consistent, well-designed archiving strategy and process. Network users simply "drag-and-drop" data and completed projects from any client computer to a network directory to archive data.

Archiving features include automatically creating multiple copies of CD or DVD media for data redundancy, providing automatic network/internet access to the data through a library, and seamlessly partitioning large projects across multiple pieces of media. The Luminex CD and DVD storage solutions manage media creation using standards-based media technology and filesystem formats, including complete support for ISO9660, Macintosh HFS, Rockridge, and Joliet filesystems.

Luminex also announces new enhancements to the HOTfolders software, including expanded functionality in partitioning large directories. These features are designed to specifically support the corporate needs of archiving large projects while still taking advantage of the standards and reliability of CD and DVD media.
