Thermal printable media is one of the trickier types of discs to source. Firstly, the media has to hold up to the rigors of a thermal printer, making sure the artwork adheres to the surface and does not peel or crack. The printed artwork should be able to print across the full face of the disc, including the inner hub. Plus, the thermal media should work with a variety of popular thermal printers, especially:
1) Rimage Everest 400/600
2) Rimage Everest II/III
3) Rimage Prism Plus
4) TEAC P-55 (using the Versamax, Black, and/or Photo ribbons)
There aren’t too many medias on the market that can stack up to that tall order, especially for the larger capacity DVD+R DL and Blu-ray discs.
Vinpower removes the headache looking for those perfect thermal printable discs. We offer nearly every media type, from CD to DVD to Blu-ray, with a thermal printable surface that works across all the major thermal printers at a much more affordable price point. Regardless of the type of printer you’re working with, Vinpower’s thermal printable media provides professional high quality, glossy printed images that last, at an extremely aggressive price.
So whatever your needs, Vinpower has the thermal printable media for you. Contact a Vinpower representative for more details.

Ever try to plug in your USB cable, (be it a flash drive, charging cable, device connector, etc.) and get frustrated because you can’t get the connection to fit? Often we’ll try to plug it in backwards or we need to carefully play around by turning the object back and forth until it finally slides in your device is connected. The USB consortium, known as the USP Promoter Group, have heard your pain and are working to eliminate this hassle, as detailed in the following article link:
How does that apply to Vinpower? When you make a 63 target USB duplicator, making sure the user plugs the USB Flash drives or USB connected external HDD’s, will make the difference between a device with a long life span and one that gets damaged through user error. Plus think about the time it would save if you didn’t have to constantly check the direction of your USB connection before you plugged in your device. This is another example of Vinpower staying ahead of the curve and looking into new and future technology so that it can be applied to Vinpower’s products before anyone else. So if you’re looking for digital duplication equipment, Vinpower is your source for the most advanced and reliable systems on the market.

So if you need to transfer content from a USB pen drive to multiple other USB pen drives, or any flash device for that matter, Vinpower has the equipment that will make the task incredibly simple, quick, and reliable.

Resolution for movies and television is constantly expanding and the UHD 4K (which is 4 times higher resolution than our current hi-def standard of 1080), requires a lot more capacity than a 25GB Blu-ray can provide. That is why recordable media manufacturers of all kinds, including optical discs, hard drives, and flash media are increasing the size and speed at which the media can record at.
Just recently, Transcend sent out a press release that touted the upcoming release of two new Compact Flash (CF) cards (256GB and 512GB) to allow video cameras to record in full 4K resolution without missing a beat. As detailed in the release found on CDRLabs.com, “Designed to support high-end 4K cameras and camcorders from the leading manufacturers and to meet the extreme demands of professional cinematography, Transcend’s CFX650 memory cards feature the fastest transfer speeds available on the current market, while CFX600 boast the highest storage capacity.”
Of course, these large capacity CF cards come at a steep price (upwards of nearly $500 to $1,000 each) and could be price prohibitive to buy more than one or a couple to capture the original content. That’s why optical discs are still the most practical solution for distributing UHD content. For just a few dollars or less than 1% of the cost of the CF cards, one could purchase a recordable Blu-ray 25GB, 50GB, 100GB, or higher capacity for mass production to the consumer market. Even as the content gets bigger and more complex, it’s nice to know that Optical discs make that content more affordable for the masses.
Whether you are looking for blank media, including the high capacity BD-R, or for steps on how to back up or create your content, Vinpower has a solution for you. Vinpower carries a number of all types of recordable media, especially optical discs, and duplication hardware, including CF to USB adaptors so that it can be reproduced through our USB duplicators. Whatever you need in the duplication field, Vinpower can provide.

You know the saying it’s too good to be true, well everyday unscrupulous individuals try to sell counterfeit items for what seems like a great deal, only to find out they are not what they appear. A recent article, http://www.myce.com/news/fake-and-counterfeit-usb-flash-drives-spreading-on-amazon-72165/, examined the rash of large capacity USB flash drives that turn out to be nothing more than much smaller capacity with a hacked firmware that makes it look like an authentic drive. It’s not until you actually use the flash drive and discover that your content was overwritten or never copied accurately to begin with, that you discover the true capacity.
Since Vinpower sells a large number of USB duplicators, we see all kinds of low quality and fake USB Flash Drives. Often they look like a more reputable brand or in fact pretend to be that brand, so the customers often blame the hardware. After we reveal the true nature of their flash drive, then they realize that they purchased a fraudulent product. So when you are looking for the right USB Duplicator or flash drive to copy, don’t get caught up in price alone, check to make sure you are getting an authentic reputable product that will meet your storage and duplication needs. Vinpower ensures all of our products are up to the highest standards, including hardware, media, and components, so that the recipient gets their money’s worth instead of wasting time and money wondering whether the product they purchased was a good deal or they were taken advantage of with fake merchandise.
Don’t leave it to chance, Vinpower stands by the products they offer.

Pioneer and Memory-Tech are co-working to create a new high capacity 512GB optical disc specifically designed for data archiving. As companies like Facebook have recently publicized, keeping critical data archived on a physical media is crucial for long term storage and data recovery. There are plenty of companies working on larger capacity optical media, even as large as 1TB, but this is the first publicized report of an extremely high capacity optical disc developed specifically with long term archival as the focus. Whether it’s for highly sensitive government or corporate material or your child’s 1st birthday photos, proper archival optical discs are still the safest and most reliable method for archiving.
Even though the 512GB archival discs are not yet available, Vinpower does offer a 25GB archival optical disc solution. Contact Vinpower Digital today for all of your digital media and duplication needs.

Computer operating systems are continuously being upgraded to provide new features and make them stronger against viruses and hackers. However, this creates a legitimate problem for companies that make hardware that interacts with the operating systems in order to allow the computer to work with or function for the device.
With the introduction of the Apple Mountain Lion OS, Vinpower has been very busy updating our Apple driver for our Copy Connection feature to make sure it was compatible for greater flexibility with Mac users.
Contact Vinpower today if you need a copy of the updated Mountain Lion driver to use in conjunction with your Vinpower or Xerox duplicator.

When Sony decided to exit the ODD market and relinquished all rights to the Optiarc 5280S-CB PLUS (”CB PLUS”) drive to Vinpower Digital, we had no idea what the true market demand would be. Although Vinpower helped Sony develop the CB PLUS Drive, we expected it to have a specific target audience in the duplication market.
It turns out that the CB PLUS drive, because of its more robust hardware, improved burning capability, and special DVD+R DL 8.7GB Overburn feature, has made the drive even more desired than we anticipated. Now Vinpower is struggling to keep enough inventory in stock to meet the market demand. Because of this, Vinpower has requested that the factory increase the current production rate by more than 200%.
If you are not familiar with the Optiarc 5280S-CB series of drives, including the CB PLUS model, feel free to review them on the Vinpower website at http://www.vinpowerdigital.com/en-us/main/product.aspx?CategoryID=83&Keyword=DVD_Burner. See for yourself why these drives have taken the world by storm!
