OptoDisc inkjet printable media designed to provide optimal print quality with Primera’s line of inkjet printers.


When you’re printing on inkjet printable discs, you want to make sure that the print quality of the discs matches the capability of the printer you’re using. That’s why Vinpower worked to develop a line of OptoDisc inkjet printable media that were developed to showcase the exceptional print quality of the Primera line of inkjet printers, including the latest Primera Bravo SE-3 and 4200 series printers. Because most media manufacturers don’t focus on fine-tuning their inkjet printable media towards specific printers, their media often doesn’t have the brilliance and brightness of color that is capable from the disc printer the customer is using. Because Vinpower is deeply involved in the development and manufacture of virtually all aspects of duplication hardware and media, we know the importance of matching the disc resolution with the output of each printer manufacturer.

The Primera Bravo series are the most widely used inkjet disc printers in the world, which is why Vinpower felt it was important to develop a line of inkjet media that can optimize their incredible print speed and resolution. So if you own a Primera printer and want to get the best results from your printed media, make sure you use the OptoDisc inkjet printable media that was optimized for the Bravo series of printers.

Google and Apple’s cooperation in cloud storage shows how competing companies can mutually benefit from joint cooperation

iCloud on Google

Recently, Apple confirmed that they have been and are currently using Google’s cloud platform for Apple’s iCloud Service. What makes this significant? These two corporations, which aggressively compete in multiple platforms, including the cloud storage market, find that it’s fiscally beneficial to work together on a shared service/product. For Apple to lease a portion of Google’s existing cloud storage network rather than building new stations on their own, shows that good business sense overrides making costly decisions based on an emotional reaction to competition.

Vinpower has long taken the same approach and built a strong OEM/ODM market by working with both our biggest competitors and other market leaders to offer duplication hardware and media through a variety of channels. Vinpower has shown over the past 18+ years that we can be a trustworthy and beneficial partner even if both parties are marketing their goods to the same customer base. Whether it’s providing hardware components, OEM media, or certification/sorting services, Vinpower has proven to be a reliable and trustworthy partner.

Why keep overpaying for products or decreasing cash flow by holding months’ worth of inventory to secure better rates or timing? When you work with Vinpower we offer the same or better items at a fraction of the price for just the items you need when you need them. It’s best to focus on growing your business rather than waste money doubling your efforts to source from an overseas entity that doesn’t take the time to understand your needs and ambitions.

Japan will offer 8K broadcast content before the end of 2018

8k Japan

Just when you were getting accustomed to 4K UHD and all the glory of the highest definition we’ve seen, they are rolling out the 8K format fast on its heels. The 8K format offers twice the megapixels and a far greater depth and array of colors than the 4K format. As you can see from these examples of HD progression (which is in Japanese, but the images explain all you need to know). They show the resolution progression from 2K (or more familiar as 1080p HD) to 4K then to 8K and the clarity, range of color, and the incredible resolution 8K provides comparatively.

8k Japan 1
8k Japan 2
8k Japan 38k Japan 4The Japanese market are very heavy users of recordable Blu-ray media to record programming directly onto discs as opposed to storing in the cloud or on a DVR device. Because of their transition to 8K scheduled for December 1, 2018, the ability to record 8K content onto discs will quickly follow suit. That gives video content providers the ability to record, broadcast, and disseminate true 8K content with no compression with ease.

Of course, Vinpower will be one of the first to offer duplicators and media capable to copy the upcoming 8K format, just as we adopted Blu-ray when it first arrived, even before it was determined that Blu-ray would be the official HD optical disc format. Vinpower strives to remain ahead of the curve and in tune with all new technology as it relates to the digital duplication and content market.

Physical Media Isn’t Going Anywhere, Says Blu-ray Disc Association

media to stay

At first glance, you may be skeptical of the statement about the longevity of physical media from an entity that not only represents and promotes a form of physical media, but also exists to collect royalties for said media. But, if you look at the empirical evidence that they have collected, it’s hard to argue with the facts that indeed, physical media has numerous advantages over streaming media content delivery.

There are two key areas that prove physical media is a true long term solution:

1) Sales for hardware to play physical media has increased as of late
2) Increased capacity for the latest Ultra HD 4K / 8K content would push the boundaries of broadband speeds and limitations.

Both of these arguments take for granted that the video content consuming audience would prefer the higher resolution, greater depth of color, and superior audio sound that the current and evolving Ultra HD 4K / 8K content would provide. According to the statistic, this assumption holds true based on the current sales of Ultra HD Blu-ray players, which has increased by 133%. In addition, there has been an eight-fold increase in 2017 for Ultra HD software as well the doubling of available Ultra HD Blu-ray titles currently available. This proves there still exists a demand for physical media, not only in the fact that consumers are willing to buy new hardware to support this media, but also that they are willing to purchase new hardware despite the fact they already own hardware that played the previous version of the media. So the consumers are making the leap with the latest upgrades in the technology.

The second argument of bandwidth limitations is also a very strong indicator that even as streaming technology is moving at a breakneck pace, it’s not moving at the same pace for everyone. Most of the regions that offer the bandwidth that could handle the streaming content transfer rates needed for the extremely large capacity UHD format, the services offering the streaming content have to appeal to a greater audience that often doesn’t have the capacity. So that means that service often compresses the content to make it easier to transfer through smaller and slower broadband services. This results in the loss of video and audio quality compared to what one would get from viewing through physical media.

These are not the only reasons or evidence that physical media is here to stay for a long long time, but they are 2 very compelling reasons that prove the Blu-ray Disc Association isn’t just a shill working on behalf of content and hardware manufacturers, but a beacon of light on a dispirited industry looking for answers whether physical media will stay or go.

The origins of the “Laser Disc” showcased at CES in 1980

laser disc

The internet can be a wonderful treasure trove of long forgotten archival media that reminds us how far we’ve come in many aspects, especially as it relates to technology. I came across this link of what I assume to be an amateur tech enthusiast and his cohorts capturing the highlights of the CES tradeshow in January of 1980:

One of the great aspects of this video, is the introduction of the new audio/visual technology, the Laser Disc. These original discs were the precursor to the development of CD’s, DVD’s, and Blu-ray formats that would follow. It’s incredible to hear how the sale people and newscasters talk about the features and benefits of this upcoming revolution in the audio and visual medium. This is especially interesting considering the other methods of enjoying A/V content, such as the 8 Track, cassette tape, VCR, LP record have all become obsolete and with the exception of the resurgence of the LP record player, the other formats are no longer being manufactured in any measurable quantities. However, the “laser disc” is going on 40 years and it is still heavily used to play and record A/V content for both personal use and mass distribution. Maybe not in the volumes we saw at the height of its popularity, but certainly in volumes that show it’s not going to disappear anytime in the near future.

It’s great to take a stroll down memory lane, or in some cases if you were born after 1980, to have the opportunity to visit a past you never knew. To me, it highlights the incredibly fast pace of change and growth in the technology field, but at the same time, shows me how some technology continues to evolve with the times, such as the optical discs’ evolution from CD to Blu-ray.
