With the iXflash, you can transfer files between your iPhone / iPad and a computer for easy access and safe keeping

iXflash connect to computer

Last week I shared how one could easily back-up all the pictures and videos from their iPhone or iPad onto the iXflash. But once you’ve done that, what do you do with all the saved images? It would make no sense just to back-up all your photos and videos if you couldn’t offload them onto a more secure and permanent storage location.

Since the iXflash also has a USB connection, you can easily transfer all your backed-up images onto a computer. But that’s not all. Using the iXflash, you can also transfer a wide variety of files, like music, movies, documents, images, and so much more back and forth between a computer and an iPhone or iPad. That flexibility allows everyone to easily convert their iXflash into a tiny portable on the go hard drive or media library that doesn’t require wi-fi or any internet access in order to operate. It’s the perfect solution for those people on the go or even those of us taking precautions and sheltering in place, but wanting to do so from your backyard or another safe location outside the home you’ve been cooped up in for far too long.

The iXflash comes in multiple capacity sizes, from 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and even 512GB, to match the needs of all users, from the occasional picture taker, to the professional influencer on the go. You can find the iXflash in a variety of online retailers around the world, including the below Amazon links in the USA:

Don’t take any chances, back-up the photos and videos on your iPhone

ixflash backup new

Millions of people around the world have taken tons of pictures and videos with their iPhone’s or iPad’s that they never back-up from their device. I don’t need to say how risky it is not to back up those images from a mobile device that could be easily lost or stolen with no recourse. In fact, it’s been documented that approx. 70 million people lose their cell phones every year. The main reason behind no backing up photos and videos is that it’s too complicated or they don’t want to pay the fees for cloud storage.

Vinpower makes it so incredibly easy and inexpensive to back up all your photos and videos through our iXflash drive and App. Merely plug it in and select back-up photos and the App will do the rest. Not only will the iXflash quickly and easily back-up all the photos and videos stored on your iPhone or iPad in their original state with the original name, date, and location tags, but it will also back-up special Apple features like Live Photo and Photo Burst in their native form so all your images will remain in their original state. In addition, the iXflash can also back-up the images stored on the iCloud, to make sure you have access to all your photos and videos, even when you don’t have access to iCloud.

Vinpower has controller options that meet the needs of all users for pricing and compatibility

Controller for everyone

Vinpower has long been known as a reliable and innovative duplication hardware manufacturer. Yet, the key to our success lies in the high quality of our standalone duplication controller. The knock on our controller was that added technological and safety advantages came at a cost, pricing our controllers above others, like ACARD. Now, with our acquisition of the ACARD duplication technology, including the controllers, we are able to offer a complete line of controllers, including lower cost versions for more price sensitive markets.

Vinpower is the largest global supplier of digital duplication controllers. This has stemmed from the overall reliability and high quality of our controllers. Another benefit is the fact that the Vinpower controllers can work with all known drives and medias on the market today, as well the ability to operate special functions with select drives and media, including the ability to offer copy protection for DVD and BD video content. These added benefits, plus lower costs, offer a greater assortment of benefits to duplication customers around the world.

In addition, when a duplicator’s drives become worn, they have issues burning certain medias and create longer duplication times or higher failure rates. Vinpower’s controllers 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. Making the Vinpower controllers able to further save money by extending the life of the drives and not wasting perfectly good media.

It’s your content, you should protect it!

protect content with copy protection

With everyone at home thirsting for interesting content, there are lots of creative people with lots of time and ideas. Today’s technology makes it so that everyone with a cell phone, a vision, and editing software can make their own movies these days. Picture for a moment that you created digital video content that you want to sell or control who you share with, 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 selectively decide who can view the content and who can’t. Protecting content is not just a problem for large enterprise or movie studios, it can be an everybody problem.

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.

They are taking a great risk that they never lose or break their phones causing them to lose all those precious memories forever. Some add insurance by paying a monthly fee to store their personal image files on a cloud service. That works if you don’t mind throwing money out the window every month or don’t mind risking your privacy if that cloud service should be hacked where your images and videos could be compromised. Plus, you can’t access the cloud if you don’t have cell or wifi service, meaning those images won’t be backed up or you can’t recall images already stored on the cloud.

During turbulent times like these, the IT world is focused on security and archival storage/backup, Vinpower has a solution.

Back-up solutions from Vinpower

The importance of backing up your data onto a 2nd and even a 3rd source is so important, there’s a day every year dedicated to it. March 31st is known as world backup day, just to bring awareness and encourage everyone to backup their digital content. Vinpower has been an advocate of multiple backups from our inception, not just because it’s part of our business structure, but because we’ve been a victim of data loss and if we hadn’t had adequate backups, we would have been in deep…let’s say we would have had big problems.

At Vinpower, we offer multiple backup solutions, from optical discs, SSD, flash (USB & SD), including our incredible iXflash iOS mobile flash storage, to name a few. But we’ve always touted optical discs as the best and most cost effective method of archival/backup. Optical Disc backups can be easily created, stored, retrieved, takes up minimal space with no power consumption, and the content cannot be altered or deleted, making them the ideal storage medium. Plus, when you compare the cost of optical discs to other digital storage mediums on a cost per KB basis, they are the most cost effective storage platform on the market today.

Now that everyone is forced to remain home, with lots of idle time, this is the perfect opportunity to backup your digital content you’ve been putting off for so long and Vinpower can make it easy and cost effective to do so.

Optiarc offers line of robust SSD, preventing data loss and failures due to latent flash issues

Optiarc SSD protect data loss

Optiarc offers line of robust SSD, preventing data loss and failures due to latent flash issues

Data retention has become an integral concern in the flash storage industry. As the capacity continues to increase with advanced 3D NAND flash memory technology, currently utilizing 96-layer memory cells, SSD manufacturers are able to increase flash memory storage while decreasing the devices physical footprint. The problem is that 3D NAND cells are built vertically in strings, meaning a defect in a single cell will most likely negatively affect the performance of the entire cell string. This minor contamination could lead to massive failure potentially causing total data loss.

It is with that security and vulnerability in mind that Optiarc focuses on maintaining data integrity to prevent potential catastrophic data loss across its series of SSD. Optiarc is able to ensure this high bar of excellence across their full SSD product line by utilizing the following implementations:

* Source the best parts and components available, using higher material purity and prequalified 3D NAND chips.

* Fine tune the SSD firmware to better control the data flow and prevent errors or overloading at the cellular level. This regulates the flow of content and directs it to the appropriate cell(s), to prevent cells from potentially being over worked and also creates faster retention. Additionally, the firmware can detect if a cell has the potential to fail and balances the loading in that cell to prevent the possibility of failure and potential data loss.

* Implement intensive testing procedures that go far beyond the standardized mainstream testing process. Use state of the art hardware to test each element of every single SSD we produce to check the drive’s potential to fail, robustness of its memory and cellular structure, read / write speed optimization, and much more to protect against contamination and ensure long term reliability and stability.

Because of these 3 key factors; high caliber components, enhanced firmware, and intense testing, Optiarc is able to virtually eliminate the risk of data loss and corrupted data integrity across its entire line of SSD models.

While many SSD’s on the market tout their massive memory capacity, low costs, or lightning fast operating speed, it is all inconsequential if your SSD crashes. Optiarc is dedicated to offering affordable, high capacity, fast SSD’s, with a focus on preserving data and preventing corruption and data loss due to faulty components or memory. The risk of using a low grade SSD or any SSD that doesn’t perform adequate qualification procedures could have catastrophic affects, resulting in potential total data loss of the entire SSD. When it comes to the content on a person’s SSD, we believe it’s more important to protect the data stored on the drive, than taking the risk to save a few dollars.

During these unprecedented times of Social Distancing, the iXflash allows you to work virtually anywhere

iXflash helps work from home

As most of the world is focusing on staying safe and adjusting to isolating themselves and their families, businesses are trying to find ways for their employees to work remotely in order to help stem the tide of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an unprecedented time, we are all looking for ways to remain vigilant, yet safe. However, for many professionals, especially from small businesses, closing up operations for weeks or months could mean there will be no business to return to. That’s why Vinpower is focused on helping those businesses and professionals by providing tools that will allow their workers to continue to function and remain productive, even when working remotely outside the office.

One such tool is the iXflash, combination Lightning mobile iPhone / iPad and USB flash drive. Amongst the many features offered by the iXflash, it can also become a portable external hard drive that allows the transference and operation of files between computers and mobile devices, in particular iPhones and iPads. Apple products, like iPhones and iPads, have notoriously stringent security protocol and do not offer the ability to added external storage. For this reason, it makes these devices both safer from hacking and limited in the ability to fully operate in a working environment as a PC. With the iXflash and it’s App, users can transfer content and files back and forth between their work computers and their iPhone / iPad in order to work seamlessly across a multitude of file types. The iXflash allows users to open typical files like WORD, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. as well as opening or even creating compressed files, like .zip files, including with password protection. The iXflash and the iXflash App allow users to maintain their work environment remotely, even if they don’t have access to their work computer or server. The iXflash allows users to maintain work efficiency, even if they do not have internet access.

With storage capacities ranging from 32GB up to 512GB, you can see why we state the iXflash as a portable hard drive, like a mini SSD drive for your mobile device. The iXflash offers those forced to be isolated to expand their boundaries and work in areas outside the office or their home that are both safe and productive.

In times of isolation, it’s easy to share content on optical discs to escape reality or bring everyone together.

Share discs during isolation

In difficult times, CD’s and DVD’s/Blu-ray help take the edge off and transport people to happier places and times. It brings people together, even when they can’t physically be together. They give you an escape, even when there’s nowhere to go. Optical discs are the best method to store your movies and music, be it CD’s, DVD’s, or Blu-ray. Optical discs are more reliable than flash, longer shelf life than a hard drive and easy for anyone to play, just insert the disc in a player and most often it starts automatically. No searching for files, accidentally deleting them, or negotiating whether you should delete other files to make room for whatever new item you want to store.

You may say, what about streaming? What if the streaming service you subscribe to doesn’t offer the program or artist you want to watch or listen to? With so many different streaming services being offered, it’s getting more and more expensive to subscribe to all of them. Instead, in addition to your streaming service(s), there are many companies offering Movies on Demand (MOD) that allow you to purchase movies and music, even obscure titles that aren’t readily available through streaming. There are a number of options to find great movies and music offerings, so why not take advantage of the time spent at home and escape through the magical world of entertainment.

Beyond traditional Hollywood movies or musicians, there are plenty of other content available and ready to be shared. Watch an old video from your past, how about having the family watch your old wedding video or a child’s music recital? If you can’t attend services for your faith, this is an opportunity to listen or watch the message from your house of faith through a CD or DVD of their service to calm you during stressful times. That way you can still attend service without the risk of being in close proximity to others. There are so many options where a good CD or DVD could be useful to takeaway the doldrums of weeks in isolation.

Vinpower offers a wide variety of duplicators and blank optical discs to businesses in the duplication market or religious establishments looking to share their content with those looking for entertainment or peace of mind.
