Vinpower is thankful for another successful CES and had a great reaction to our latest product offerings!

CES 2019 show

Thank you to everyone that visited Vinpower’s booth at the 2019 CES trade show. Once again, Vinpower received great feedback from the show floor and took a number of meetings with valued customers and vendors alike. This year, we highlighted a number of key products and offerings, like the enhanced iXflash Apple iPhone/iPad flash drive, traditional USB flash media, top grade Piodata and Optiarc SSD drives, and our newest offering the authentic ACARD line of duplication controllers. In addition, we showcased examples of our publishing and duplication hardware along with our proprietary line of optical discs and drives.

The enhanced iXflash offers these unique features that separate it from the competition:

• Support READ ONLY function to protect against threats, such as accidentally deleting or altering content on the drive as well as preventing viruses if in contact with an infected computer

• Mobile Work Station by supporting a wide range of file formats, including WORD, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, as well as supports uncompressing ZIP, RAR and 7z, to name a few.

• Traveling Entertainment Center, that supports nearly all media formats, including MP3/MP4/FLAC 1080p/4K etc. so that you can enjoy your movies and music anywhere without needing internet access

• True photo backup, that doesn’t matter if it’s standard photos, live photos or even photos stored on iCloud, the iXflash APP will make an exact backup for you, including matching the actual time and location tags!

• Live Recording Plus, allows you to records video or photos directly to the iXflash drive without using any of your iphone/ipad’s internal memory, not even as a buffer like competing devices!!

The Piodata and Optiarc SSD line will provide 100% certified top performing SSD drives that are suitable for all working environments. Never again will you have to sorry whether your hard drive has the speed, reliability, or longevity to hold your most important and critical content today and well into the future.

Plus, with Vinpower acquiring the ACARD duplication elements, it will allow us to service markets we never had access to as well as enhance our current duplication offerings for new and improved applications in the future.

Vinpower has recently acquired all rights and privileges for ACARD’s line of duplication products

ACARD - new acquisition

At one time, ACARD was the biggest name and leader in terms of global sales for duplication controllers. They had a huge advantage in their ownership and ability to develop and produce their own IC chips with their proprietary software installed. In owning the design and production of their own IC chips, made the cost of their controllers nearly half of everyone else’s, giving them a significant price advantage. That was a key reason that ACARD was able to become the leader in controller sales. However, due to mismanagement and poor decisions, the company eventually fell into financial disarray and ceased operation.

Vinpower, being the leading supplier of duplication hardware, including our own proprietary controllers, saw a great opportunity to enhance our own product offering as well as improve our future product lines by acquiring the full line of ACARD’s duplication technology. Throughout and lengthy and often tenuous negotiations, Vinpower finalized the acquisition of ACARD’s duplication product and technology division the end of 2018, just in time to make the announcement of the acquisition during the 2019 CES tradeshow in Las Vegas. With ACARD’s IC technology, Vinpower will be able to both offer future improvements and lower costs for our duplication product lines as well as new products that were previously too costly to develop.

For those of you that were able to visit with us and see the new ACARD product offerings first hand, I hope you were impressed by the future product map for Vinpower through the blended technology. For those who were not able to attend CES, we look forward to speaking with you in the near future to update you about our plans and the offerings that may be beneficial to both of us.

For more information about the ACARD product line or any of Vinpower’s current or future product lines, please visit our website, www.vinpowerdigital.comor speak with a Vinpower representative for your region.

Vinpower’s iXflash can now directly record live video content through your iPhone/iPad without using any memory from your iPhone/iPad

iXflash LVR
Imagine a scenario where you want to film an event, maybe your child’s 1st recital or youth sports league, and you realize you have very little memory left on your iPhone or iPad with which to record with. You don’t want to have to frantically delete content on your iPhone/iPad to free up space, possibly deleting something you didn’t intend to or hope that someone else in the audience will record the event and share it with you. You want to be able to record exactly what you want for as long as you want.

That’s where the iXflash is your perfect accessory for your iPhone or iPad. The iXflash with its Live Recording Plus (LRP) feature allows you to record live video or take photos that are stored directly onto the iXflash’s internal memory without using any memory from the iPhone/iPad you’re filming with. No matter how little memory you have left on your iPhone/iPad, as long as there’s available memory on the iXflash then you don’t have to miss recording any important events. Since the iXflash comes in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage sizes, you should always have plenty of space to record life’s previous moments.

Not only can you record events without worrying about having enough memory, but you can also pause and resume filming so that you can maintain 1 continuous video rather than constantly starting and stopping, which causes you to have lots of smaller videos creating a headache of having to edit them together or show lots of separate videos. On top of that, you can easily switch between the front and rear cameras.

The iXflash LRP feature opens up a world of possibilities and even more that I haven’t touched on. To fully understand the full benefits of the iXflash, visit our website, www.piodata.com or www.vinpowerdigital.com, plus you can speak with an authorized Vinpower representative near you.

Data shows that 70% of global recordable optical disc media are recorded using dedicated optical disc duplicators

70 percent dupe use

I’ve written a lot about the premature demise of the recordable optical disc. The fact that there are still billions of recordable CD, DVD, and Blu-ray discs produced and sold globally every year, shows that optical discs are not going away anytime soon. The volume may be significantly reduced from its hay day, but it’s still a sizeable volume nonetheless. With that many discs circulating around the world every year, how are those consumers utilizing the media? Given the reality that most PC’s no longer come installed with internal optical disc writer drives, how are most people utilizing this blank media that they paid hard earned money on?

The answer is, approximately 70% of all recordable optical disc media are copied using an array of duplication towers and/or autoloaders. That means that duplication hardware, such as the controller, recording drives, etc., are still major factors in the handling and therefore production of recordable optical media. The whole product line is like an ecosystem, where each item is dependent on the other for purpose and a reason for being.

That means that if there were no more duplication controllers, then the ability to burn the optical discs would become that much harder and would have a direct correlation to the decrease in optical disc production. That’s why Vinpower stands apart in the duplication market as we have a hand in every element within the duplication ecosystem and we work hard to make that ecosystem as available and reliable as can be. Vinpower has their own manufactured line of duplication controllers, specialty optical disc drives that are enhanced to our specifications, as well as optical disc media that offers greater compatibility and longevity that other competing products on the market.

Vinpower makes it easy to implement true Blu-ray Copy Protection that helps keep your content safe and ensures reliable playback.

copy protection II

Picture for a moment that you have digital video content that you want to sell or control what you share with others, what are your limitations? One issue could be that those that view your content, decide to make copies or upload online without your permission or consent. If you were hoping to sell that content, then you no longer have the opportunity because someone took that decision from you and made it available for free to anyone. If you had hoped to keep the content private, now it’s been released onto the web or passed from person to person for all to share and see without your ability to moderate who has access based on who legally obtained the content. Protecting content is not just a problem for large enterprise or movie studios, it can affect everyone.

Vinpower has been developing hardware and software tools that enable companies and individuals to keep their content safe for many years now and we continue to improve the process and decrease the costs to do so. It shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg just to protect what’s rightfully yours. So, don’t take any chances with your digital video content, add Vinpower’s copy protection to rest easier knowing that you don’t have to be a victim.

Keep all of your content safe with Vinpower’s DVD and Blu-ray CopyLock copy protection for FREE!

free copy protect2

In a time when most companies want to give you less and charge more for it, Vinpower is doing the opposite and providing more for less. Previously, the Copylock software and capability to support Vinpower’s market leading DVD & Blu-ray* copy protected image files were optional add-ons, but now Vinpower will make it available for free on all new eligible duplicators. So if you purchase any Vinpower branded DVD or Blu-ray duplicator, the Copylock copy protection software and capabilities will be included for free*!

In today’s savvy hi-tech world, consumers are often purchasing a single video and making copies for their friends which limit the overall sales. If you worked hard and put in a lot of effort and expense into creating your video project, you shouldn’t be restricted in the number of units you can sell because you can’t afford the high price of replicated copy protection. Instead, by using Vinpower Digital’s Copylock (CPS) technology, you can feel secure by adding FREE Copy Protection* with the OCP or EZ BD format** and OptoDisc manufactured media in less time and with no minimum or maximum quantities required.

Why should it cost you extra to protect what’s rightfully yours? Keep the savings in your pocket and increase your revenue by adding Vinpower’s free Copy Protection along with the superior OptoDisc manufactured media.

For more details about this product or any of Vinpower Digital’s range of hardware, software, and media offerings, visit our website, www.vinpowerdigital.com or speak with an authorized Vinpower representative near you.

*In order to utilize the free copy protection, the user must use DVD or BD media with the OptoDisc MID code, contact Vinpower for a list of such media options.

**For Blu-ray copy protection, the duplicator must be enabled to produce BD copy protected discs, check with your sales associate to make certain before purchasing.

Vinpower is now offering our single DVD or BD external USB3.0 PC connected drive with copy protection and burning encryption software.

Ext Disc burner w copy protect

Vinpower has offered DVD and Blu-ray video content copy protections for a number of years now through our range of manual towers and autoloaders. For the 1st time, we are offering a one off single source external DVD or BD/DVD writer drive connected to a computer by USB3.0 with the ability to perform the same DVD or Blu-ray copy protection.

The novel idea also allows the user to add copy protection to single layer (4.7GB) DVD and (25GB) BD-R at absolutely no cost if you’re burning onto any variety of Optodisc media.

Sony will Release the World’s First 4-layer 128GB BD-R XL Disc, which Vinpower’s BDXL Blu-ray duplicators support

128GB BDXL disc

The awareness of quad layer BDXL discs that can copy up to 128GB has been prevalent for years now, so much so that everyone thought the media was already available. In actuality, only the specification for the 4-layer 128GB optical disc existed. No one had actually produced the media for the open market until Sony recently announced their first release scheduled for November 2018. Only the tri-layer 100GB BDXL was readily available to this point. Sony surged ahead and will be the first to commercially offer the true quad-layer 128GB BDXL writable discs.

The positive is that Vinpower’s BDXL Blu-ray duplicators (SharkBlu XL models), will be able to write onto those discs without an issue. If you want to be an early adoptor and use the 128GB BDXL discs, then make sure you use the duplicators that have proven themselves time and again to be the most reliable duplicators on the market.
