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.

The OptoDisc line of DVD+R DL officially supports burning up to 8.7GB data*

DVD+R 8.7

Because double layer media, like the DVD+R DL find it difficult to accurately burn to the outer edge, most media manufacturers limit the burn capacity to 8.5GB instead of the true capacity of 8.7GB. However, many who use DVD+R DL discs often find that the content they intend to copy is often just slightly larger than 8.5GB’s. This will typically make the duplication process fail and leave the user without an option on how to copy the content due to its slightly larger size.

That is why Vinpower developed its line of OptoDisc DVD+R DL media, that with the right duplication equipment, such as Vinpower’s line of DVD PLUS series of SharkCopier, TITAN, Aero, Cronus, amongst others, that slightly larger content can be copied successfully each and every time. The OptoDisc DVD+R DL allows the user to push past the listed 8.5GB media capacity limitation up to a more than adequate 8.7GB. Even though 200MB may not seem like a significant difference, for those that have a project they need to copy that is even just 5MB larger than 8.5GB, it makes all the difference in the world.

Vinpower’s Liquid Defense Plus has been proven to work as well as JVC/TY Watershield media

LDP better than inkjet

With Taiyo Yuden’s exit from the media business, Vinpower’s line of OptoDisc media has proven to provide a strong and reliable alternative. In fact, Vinpower’s line of Liquid Defense Plus, the water and scratch resistant glossy media line, which includes CD-R, DVD+/-R, DVD+R DL, 25GB BD-R, and 50GB BD-R DL versions, provides an exceptional print quality that is as good if not better than a full color thermal print. Even better is that the total cost per print for a disc is lower with the Liquid Defense Plus than with a full color thermal printed disc.

Around the world, Inkjet printing is still the primary print method for labeling optical discs. Even though the printers can apply photo quality artwork, if the discs are just standard inkjet printable media, the actual printed image is not protected and can easily smear, fade, or bleed. The best way to prevent that is by using the Vinpower line of Liquid Defense Plus media, which uses special nano-particle molecular technology to seal in the ink and prevent moisture or other factors to disrupt the image.
As the image shows, the nano-particle molecular technology prevents the ink from separating and holds it in place, regardless of the amount of water or moisture that comes in contact with it. So if you really care about the look and longevity of your printed media, Vinpower’s Liquid Defense Plus is the best solution for you!

All of Vinpower’s Optical Disc Duplicators can accommodate the largest available 8TB HDD’s

8TB

The fact that an 8TB hard drive exists is quite amazing, given that magnitude of the content that could be stored on that drive. So the fact that all of Vinpower’s optical disc duplicators, manual towers and autoloaders, can utilize the 8TB HDD to store projects/jobs, is also an impressive feat. It’s also fair to think, why would anyone need such a large HDD inside a duplicator.

When you think about the fact that content is getting larger and larger, for instance, UHD/4K content could be over 100GB per disc, then it’s easy to see how a user would need a much greater amount of space to store each project for future duplication jobs. Couple that with Vinpower’s new Blu-ray Copy Protection (BCP) feature, where the protected files would need to reside on the HDD to make additional protected copies without requiring additional licenses, and the amount of space needed could add up quickly.
Regardless of whether you’ll need an 8TB HDD for your duplicator or not, the key is that Vinpower strives to stay ahead of the curve and is constantly expanding the boundaries of what’s possible for our duplication hardware.
