iXflash available

Have you ever gotten a gift for someone and you knew it is something they would love and could really use? Do you remember how difficult it was to hold onto it and wait to give it to them on the actual date the present was intended for? That’s how I’ve felt the last year or so as we’ve perfected our latest offering with the iXflash, Apple Lighting Flash drive. We completely redesigned and improved upon both the actual drive and the App used with the drive to make it the most ideal companion for anyone that has an Apple iPhone or iPad, regardless of the storage capacity.

With the iXflash, you’ll no longer live in fear of missing the perfect picture/video or be forced to delete important images or Apps because your iPhone or iPad is running out of memory. The iXflash provides extended memory for iPhones, iPads, and iPods with a Lightning connection. It allows you to take pictures and videos with confidence, watch HD quality feature length movies, and listen to music without sacrifice or requiring a connection to a computer or the internet. The iXflash frees you from the limitations of your storage capacity and opens up a world of possibilities!

Key Features:
• Small device – HUGE CAPACITY: With added storage capacity of 32GB, 64GB, 128Gb, up to 256GB, you should never worry about running out of storage capacity on your iPhone or iPad. Never again will you be frustrated by messages that say, “Cannot Take Photo,” because there’s no more space for new photo’s or videos.
• Direct Photo/Video Capture: The iXflash allows you to take real time photos and videos that transfer directly to the iXflash’s internal memory, without using the memory on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.
• TRANSFER BETWEEN ALL YOUR DEVICES: The iXflash can quickly and easily transfer content between multiple iPhones or iPads, allowing you to share all or select photos and videos with friends and family quickly and securely. Plus, with the USB 3.1 connection, you can back up all your content onto a computer or transfer content from a computer to view or listen to on your iPhone or iPad.

Vinpower’s new Pearl White DVD±R Media offers better compatibility and helps prevent “Donut Rings” on the burning side of the disc.

Pearl White DVD

Vinpower introduced our new line of Pearl White DVD±R Media at the 2018 Computex Trade Show in Taiwan this week. Patterned after the success of the original Princo white DVD±R Media formula, Vinpower acquired key engineers from Princo to develop our improved line of Pearl White DVD±R. Princo was famous for their oddly white colored discs, which were able to burn effectively even under less than favorable conditions of the drives. The drawback of the Princo DVD line was the fact that since they didn’t adhere to the official DVD specifications, the discs had a shorter lifespan in terms of maintaining the data integrity.

When Vinpower developed the Pearl White DVD±R media line, we improved the reliability and longevity of the media and incorporated the official DVD specifications and disc geometries. Because of these advancements, Vinpower’s Pearl White DVD±R Media has demonstrated an ability to successfully record content even when using older legacy drives or drives that have a lot of wear and tear causing other types of media to have high failure rates. On top of that, the new Pearl White DVD±R media uses a specialized Recording Dye that minimizes the uneven appearance of the recording surface of the disc, which is often referred to as “Donut Rings”.

To recap, highlights of Vinpower’s Pearl White DVD±R Media line are:

• Special formula derived from PRINCO (White Disc)
• Maintain the basic disc geometries and improved long term data integrity
• Easy to burn for all models or conditions of ODDs, preventing high failure rates
• Easy to read for all kinds of ODDs and players (both old and new)
• No speed drop during burning and playback
• No “Donut Ring”

Investors are betting that optical discs have a bright future after major disc manufacturers in Taiwan have record returns in May

TW stockmarket

The stock market has often been an early indicator as to the health of a company, industry, or even the general economy. When you see companies stock prices rise, especially when they rise quickly, it’s generally a symbol of stability and optimistic growth for that company on the part of the investors. So even if the good fortunes are not realized immediately, they look to be headed in a positive direction. That is certainly the case for the two key optical disc media manufacturers in Taiwan. Both of them had record setting growth in terms of their increased stock valuation in May. The increase is due to multiple opportunities for increased optical disc sales and profits currently and in the future, such as long term archival of cold storage, security, evidence, entertainment, and more.

So why would I be talking about the good fortunes of others? As the saying goes, high tide lifts all boats. When the industry as a whole is seeing growth, all those serious suppliers involved in the optical disc market will also experience growth. Optodisc has also benefited from this new market trend through greater opportunities from new and existing ventures. Our focus on providing high quality selective media at competitive pricing has shown dividend from those tired of receiving media with inconsistencies and high failure rates. Plus, with Vinpower’s vast expertise in duplication hardware and Optical Disc Drives (ODD), it puts us in a class of our own. So we celebrate the accomplishment of others in our industry because we too are reaping the benefits from the shift in outlook on the optical disc market.

Archival discs are the best option for cold storage as digital content providers look for the most effective way to reduce volume on their server farms.

Archival Disc business

Every time you send an email, post a picture on social media (like Facebook), or send a snarky message through Twitter, and so on, you leave a digital footprint that is kept and stored by the platform you’re using. That means that companies like Facebook, Google, WhatsApp, etc. need to maintain adequate server farms to hold not just recent data storage, but also years of previous data. That old content is referred to as “cold data” because it’s rarely retrieved and essentially on ice until it’s needed again. Since cold data is not accessed frequently, to free up space for current and future content, the cold data is often offloaded onto another digital platform that can be easily stored, retrieved, and doesn’t take a lot of space, both physically and electronically. That makes optical discs the ideal storage medium for Cold Data as it fulfills all of the requirements.

In 2016, the thinktank IDC concluded that the world’s data storage stood at 16ZB, (that’s Zettabytes, with a “Z”, which is 1 trillion Gigabytes, that’s trillion with a “T”). Based on current and expected future internet usage, the IDC anticipates that number to increase to 163ZB’s by 2020. That means in 4 short years, we would have all contributed nearly 150 more Zettabytes or 150 trillion GB’s of digital content held in electronic storage. Based on these numbers, it’s expected that even if only 10% of that content needs to be offloaded onto Archival Discs (AD), which currently hold 300GB each, it would take roughly 800 million AD’s to hold that content resulting in a windfall of approx. USD $3 billion in revenue for the company(ies) that can tap into this growing market. That is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of potential for the AD market. So, this is the perfect time to get in and take advantage of the future of the optical evolution.

Is the CD going extinct like the cassette tape or will it have a resurgence like vinyl albums?

CD not dead

Often when I mention to people that my company sells CD duplicators or when I’m exhibiting our products at a trade show, it’s not uncommon for the people to ask, “who buys CD’s anymore?” My typical response is to mention that music CD sales are still a billion-dollar business, and that sales of recordable CD-R are well over +500 million pieces a year in the U.S. alone. That doesn’t mean that the market share isn’t decreasing, it’s just that it’s nowhere close to becoming extinct or a novelty item like the cassette tape.

Could CD’s eventually disappear? It’s hard to say for certain, but my bet would be no. In fact, I think CD’s will continue to hold a special place in the hearts of music enthusiast around the world for its unequalled clarity and sound quality. Take for instance, vinyl albums. It was widely believed vinyl albums were headed for extinction, like the Woolly Mammoth. But yet, they have been resurrected, like an audiophile Jurassic Park. In fact, sales of vinyl albums increased to 14.3 million in 2017, up from just 1 million in 2007, according to Nielsen Music. The same music can be found digitally, but the consumers that bought these vinyl albums did so because they specifically wanted to own the physical media in a format they have a special affinity for.

I believe the same will be true for the CD. Not only is the CD the most versatile format for content storage, in that it is commonly used to hold music, videos, photos, X-rays, documents, etc., but it’s also the most affordable storage format as well. There still is and will continue to be a large segment of the population that realize it’s important to own tangible products like CD’s that they can store and reliably play anytime they choose.

When you are looking for recordable media, especially CD-R, that will consistently and reliably burn without flaws and playback without errors, Vinpower should be your preferred supplier.

The new Daisy Chain towers boasts an upgraded controller and connections between systems, which enables the individual towers to not only burn faster, but also smoother and easier than the original models. In creating a smoother burning process creates a more stable duplication environment dramatically reducing the risks of failed burns across the towers. Even if there is one or two failed burns, the new daisy chain duplicators will not allow those failed burns to negatively impact the rest of the drives across the other towers in the chain, maintain a much higher success rate.

To schedule an appointment for a meeting during Computex, or for more details about the many product offerings available and upcoming, visit www.vinpowerdigital.com, or contact a Vinpower representative today.

Vinpower has released the recently revamped and improved series of daisy chain duplicators

daisy chain

The old saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Well, Vinpower doesn’t always subscribe to that notion as we’ve found that most everything can be improved upon. Take for instance our line of daisy chain duplicators, in which the user can connect a near unlimited number of towers to operate copying a single master simultaneously across all towers, for the ultimate in productions. Customers of our previous systems have been very happy with the units, but we noticed there were some ways we could improve the systems, such as increase the duplication speed on the Blu-ray models, greater burning stability across all towers to greatly reduce the risk of failed burns, and easier to connect the towers and operate as a daisy chain system.

The original Vinpower Daisy Chain models could only burn Blu-ray discs at a maximum 2X speed. The new Daisy Chain models have tripled the speed up to 6X. Due to the large capacity of Blu-ray discs, the increased maximum speed would reduce the total burn time by almost 50%, which means you can complete your job in nearly half the time.
The new Daisy Chain towers boasts an upgraded controller and connections between systems, which enables the individual towers to not only burn faster, but also smoother and easier than the original models. In creating a smoother burning process creates a more stable duplication environment dramatically reducing the risks of failed burns across the towers. Even if there is one or two failed burns, the new daisy chain duplicators will not allow those failed burns to negatively impact the rest of the drives across the other towers in the chain, maintain a much higher success rate.

With the new daisy chain connections across each tower, it’s easier to connect and initiate each round of copies across the new daisy chain systems, increasing efficiency and time management.

So if you’re looking to swap out your older systems or need new systems to increase your production capacity and increase your ROI, the NEW Vinpower Daisy Chain Duplicators are the way to go.

Vinpower Digital would like to thank everyone that visited our booth at the 2018 NAB trade show

2018 NAB

Vinpower would like to thank everyone that visited our booth during the 2018 NAB trade show. We look forward to further discussions with those of you that visited our booth about the product offerings we discussed. We had many positive discussions about our product lines while at the NAB trade show. This was especially true for our large scale 128 port USB duplicator, the iXflash iPhone and iPad flash storage and back-up drive, USB and Optical Disc media offerings, Half Height Recorder Drives, publishing systems, as well as our more traditional duplication hardware.

The iXflash Aplle OTG flash drives were a particular hit as they allow individuals to back up all of their photos and videos from their iPhones and iPads and well as play back stored content like movies and music without using their iPhone’s or iPad’s internal memory. The ability to charge your iPhone or iPad while the iXflash is installed was a big advantage. In addition, there was a lot of attention for our enhanced USB and SD/Micro SD flash duplicators. These larger systems allow users to copy even more devices asynchronously or simultaneously than any of our previous systems. Additionally, we showed the Cronus publishing series offering our exclusive BCP Blu-ray and 4K UHD copy protection. This series of publishing systems offers the ability to embed true copy protection on DVD, standard Blu-ray, and the 4K UltraHD Blu-ray copy protection through a standalone duplicator. These were just a few of the many useful Vinpower hardware and media offerings we showcased.

For those who unfortunately could not visit us at NAB, you are always welcome to visit our website at www.vinpowerdigital.com, or contact us directly at one of our branch offices in the USA, Europe, Taiwan, or China. You can also visit us at the Computex trade show in Taiwan June 4-9, 2018. We thank all of our loyal and happy customers, partners, and friends and look forward to continued advancements and success throughout this year and beyond!
