    SIERRA MADRE, Calif., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- VOB Information Systems
 Inc., a major worldwide developer of data storage software products, today
 announced the release of InstantCD/DVD 6, the newest version of its
 award-winning software for creating CDs and DVDs.  InstantCD/DVD 6 is a
 high-end recording application that offers many features not available in
 other products, including a backup program, support for RAW copies, extensive
 audio features, Super VideoCD support, UDF packet writing, support for
 CD-R(W), DVD-RAM, and DVD-R devices, DVD Photo Album support, support for
 BURN-Proof and JustLink devices, and the ability to write to multiple
 recorders simultaneously.
     New audio features include the ability to burn any type of MP3 file on the
 fly, an integrated CD artist/title database with over 1.5 million titles, and
 new audio effects such as volume adjustment and stereo balance for individual
 tracks, and normalization.  Users can also clean up noisy audio tracks from
 vinyl or tape with the denoise feature.  New video features include enhanced
 MPEG 1 compression, the ability to create SuperVideo CDs, and support for
 direct video capture from an installed video card.
     InstantCD/DVD 6 includes VOB's InstantBackup, which allows data to be
 backed up to CD-R(W), DVD-RAM, DVD-R, MO or Zip drives.  InstantBackup
 features compression, encryption, and disc spanning, so that data can be
 backed up to multiple discs.
     InstantCD/DVD 6 is also easier to use.  The user interface has been
 completely redesigned for better navigation, with a new Starter application
 that launches automatically when a blank disc is inserted.  The application
 also includes integrated Wizard and intelligent Agent features that help guide
 less experienced users through the recording process.
     "We believe that InstantCD/DVD 6 is the most powerful CD/DVD recording
 solution currently available," said Volkmar Breitfeld, Chief Executive Officer
 of VOB Computersysteme GmbH.  "Our design goal was to provide users with all
 of the features that they need to record any type of CD or DVD.  Additionally,
 we wanted to make the recording process as easy as possible, for both novices
 and more experienced users."
