KUBOTA WINS LICENCE FROM EXABYTE FOR MANUFACTURE AND SALE OF EXB-8200

By CBR Staff Writer

Kubota Ltd has won a licence from Boulder, Colorado start-up Exabyte Corp for exclusive manufacture and sale in Japan and Asia-Pacific regions of its computer tape back-up system: the system, called EXB-8200, uses 8mm video cassette tape and a 120 minute tape stores 2Gb and sells in the US for $2,500, much cheaper than previous systems; trial production will start in September in Japan, where the system will be sold and exported by Nippon Systemhouse, a Tokyo computer peripheral equipment maker; Kubota, originally an industrial machinery maker, entered the computer market in April by forming a company to manufacture and sell high-performance workstations – and it also has a software arm.
