Vinpower offers Blu-ray Copy protection that does not require any fees or added costs

EZ BD Copy Protection

Last week you may recall that Vinpower introduced its line of Blu-ray Copy Protection duplicators that added a strong security of protection against copying or ripping Blu-ray content protected by the BCP. With those units, they do require a dongle with licenses for the BCP protection to be embedded onto the duplicated discs. What if wanted to reduce your costs and you don’t need as strong of copy protection, but still want some protection as a good deterrent against the majority of people from copying or ripping the content from your Blu-ray projects? That’s why Vinpower created the EZ BD Copy Protection!

Using our specialized Blu-ray duplicators with the EZ Copy Protection enabled, as long as you use any brand of OptoDisc Blu-ray media, the system will be able to embed the EZ BD Copy Protection without requiring a dongle or any special licenses or fees. So you can create as many copy protected discs as you’d like without any added costs. The only requirements are that you use a Vinpower Blu-ray duplicator with the EZ BD Copy Protection feature enabled with the excellent quality low cost OptoDisc produced BD media. If you’re not paying extra for the EZ BD Copy Protection and you’re making Blu-ray duplications anyway, there’s no reason not to add the protection. There are no issues in playback with any BD player that accepts BD-R media, so your customers will be able to play your BD content without concerns.

Vinpower’s certified Blu-ray Copy Protection (BCP) embeds a market leading Blu-ray copy protection and has superior playback across all known players*.

BCP2

Vinpower has developed one of the most secure Blu-ray copy protection (BCP) applications available. The BCP application is embedded directly into all duplicated Blu-ray content through authorized standalone duplication and publishing hardware that produce any number of 25GB or 50GB Blu-ray discs that includes protection from recipients copying or ripping the content from those discs.

The process of adding copy protection to Blu-ray discs was previously not possible, too expensive, or required replications which would require minimum commitments and would also be costly. Vinpower’s BCP is extremely easy to produce and costs a fraction of what it would cost to use other methods of copy protection. In addition, the resulting protected discs have excellent playback compatibility, ensuring that you can play your protected content across all known Blu-ray players or through all known BD player software available. This is key as what’s the point of adding protection if the user can’t play the content on their preferred player or software.

If you want to true Blu-ray copy protection, only Vinpower’s BCP can offer you the most secure protection along with exceptional playback at a truly acceptable price point. For more details about Vinpower’s BCP application, visit our website, www.vinpowerdigital.com or contact a Vinpower representative today.

* Includes only Blu-ray players and video software that can play recordable media.

• Stable Recording Control – The drives have an extensive database of media specs and are better able to communicate and convey these details while burning the disc(s) at ultimate speed.
Greater Compatibility with blank media and media players:
• Stable burning throughout – Provides consistent and reliable burning of any file type for the duration of the duplication progress to ensure the recorded media has far greater reliability of playback or that the discs will successfully copy to begin with.

Vinpower has developed a new method of DVD Video Copy Protection that DOES NOT require a dongle/license

free copy protect

Vinpower’s line of OCP Duplicators, offers DVD copy protection, that does not require a dongle or any expense to implement licenses on either the master or the subsequent copies. This line of duplicators, now with updated firmware to enhance the copy and protection process, can simply implement DVD Video copy protection by using any OptoDisc MID recordable DVD. The process is related to a direct correlation between the duplicator’s controller, the writer drives, and select primary OptoDisc media working together to implement a suitable DVD Copy Protection with virtually no effort or expense.

This line of Copy Protection through a standalone duplicator, available for both manual towers and autoloaders, offers a unique blend of both cost savings and added protection against copyright theft. If you prefer not to allow others to copy your DVD video content, but don’t have the funds or the necessity to pay the added cost of Vinpower higher end BCP or AACS implementations, then Vinpower’s latest offering and FW update is the perfect solution for you.

The Vinpower Digital optical disc duplication controller is designed to integrate with all known ODD’s and media available for a complete solution.

Vin Controller works with everything

Vinpower has long been known as one of the most reliable duplication hardware manufacturers, but the key to our success lies in the high quality of our standalone duplication controller. Vinpower is currently the largest global supplier of digital duplication controllers. This has stemmed from the overall reliability and high quality of our controllers as well as the key that the Vinpower controller can work with all known OOD’s and medias on the market today, as well as operate special functions with select drives and media. These added benefits, enable those who wish to build their own duplicators the confidence that they can use any ODD burner and Optical Disc media currently available on the market.

The key is that the Vinpower controller not only works with all known ODD’s, but it can also perform that specific drive’s firmware update for the drive or multiple drives simultaneously. This is a huge benefit as ODD’s constantly have FW updates and previously those drives would have to be removed from the duplicator and attached to a computer one by one to perform the FW update. This is a tedious and time consuming task, but with the Vinpower controller, you can update all the drives in the duplicator at once in a couple of minutes without any hassle or complications.

In addition, some duplicators or drives, when they become worn, have issues burning certain medias and create longer duplication times or higher failure rates. Vinpower’s controller recognizes these variances in the methods that drive’s burn media at during various stages in its production cycle and helps compensate through managing the duplication process. This not only extends the lifecycle of the drives, but also reduces the number of failed burns produced by the duplicator(s) as well.

Ultimately, the Vinpower controller is a cost savings tool in that it lowers the rate of failed discs and extends the longevity of the burners, which reduces overall expenses and increases performance.

Vinpower is making its exclusive line of Blue Magic branded media available to the public

Blue Magic

Blue Magic was created as an exclusive brand for a select territory, but that exclusivity has now expired and now we are making it widely available to the expanded market. Blue Magic is manufactured in Taiwan under the strict QC standards of Vinpower’s Media Control Division. Blue Magic was developed for the professional duplication market which requires constant duplication with non-stop production. We created Blue Magic to meet the rigors of the duplication market with minimal to no failure rate, yet maintain a high quality compatibility and playback capability.

The Plextor PX-891SAF-PLUS Optical Disc Drive now offers the capability of burning DVD’s at 4X and CD’s at 8X speed for greater performance and reliability.

Plextor 4x 8x

Just like the old fable about the tortoise and the hare, sometimes slow and steady wins the race. Often, we only tout how fast a drive is and the max burn speed it can offer. But in reality, the higher the speed, the more likely there could be errors on the copied discs. Those errors could be minor, but to Audiophiles, (a person who is especially interested in high-fidelity sound reproduction), and those that are particular about the quality of their movies and music, those “minor” errors are a major problem. That’s why those that care about the recorded quality and output of their duplicated discs prefer to use the slowest burn speed possible. The problem is, most of the optical disc drive (ODD) manufacturers removed the preferred 4X DVD±R and 8X CD-R burn speed options in favor of the faster 24X DVD and 48X ~ 52X CD burn speeds, which they can advertise on the box to make people think that faster is better. That makes the users that want to burn at a lower speed, to preserve the quality of their recordings, out of luck.

It’s for that very reason that we helped implement the return of the 4X* DVD±R and 8X* CD-R burn speeds on the new Plextor PX-891SAF-PLUS drive, to satisfy those the rest of the industry has ignored. So if you really care about the quality of your duplicated media and want the option to burn CD’s and DVD’s at the lowest optimal speed, the Plextor PX-891SAF-PLUS drive is the solution for you.

Smart phones and tablets have become much more than simple methods of communicating or surfing the web. Instead, they have become the Swiss Army Knives of electronics. They have become our cameras, MP3 players, TV’s, navigation, video games, and much more. With all that content, it’s easy to see how the device’s internal memory, especially for iPhones and iPads, can fill up quickly. Pictures and videos stored on an iPhone or iPad tend to use the most memory, but it’s not always convenient to back them up onto a computer and storing them in the cloud can be an added monthly or annual expense you don’t need, plus there could be safety concerns with hackers.

If you want to make sure you can always have available memory to take any photos or videos you want as well as hold a library of movies, music, documents, etc., Vinpower’s line of iConnect Mini, iConnect, and the upcoming InstaShot is your answer. All of these devices can quickly back-up all of your stored photos and videos, as well as hold whole collections of movies, music, and other content that would be helpful or entertaining to have available on demand, without using any precious memory from the iPhone or iPad itself.
