I went to the 2009 COMPUTEX TAIPEI in June to look around and see the new products. This yearâ€™s COMPUTEX TAIPEI was different from the last time I attended, 2 years ago. With the completed new hall that has been incorporated since last year made the overall exhibition hall feel as though it was built on an enormous scale.
The majority of my time there was spent walking around booths related to Data Storage located on the first floor of the Nangang exhibition hall. I was quite impressed by how many more duplicators were shown this year compared to more than 2 years ago on my last visit. Besides optical disc duplicators, I also saw many flash memory (SD card and USB memory) duplicators within the hall. With new products constantly coming out and many booths increasing, I felt this fieldâ€™s growing.
Vinpower Digital Incâ€™s booth has especially grown in comparison to the last time I attended. Besides the CD/DVD duplicators and Autoloaders as usual, Vinpower had a lot of new exhibits, such as BD duplicators, USB memory duplicators, Disc printers, HDD duplicators and copy protect duplicator for the ultimate security.
The Copy protect duplicators prevent unauthorized copying of protected discs, yet retains the recorded discs strong compatibility. If you ask me about the units detailed operation principles, I still have no idea. But I believe it must be very attractive to many people.
On another note, visitors could get free gifts within the exhibition. Guiding girls threw free gifts from stage to the visitors. It was very interesting.
For example, many people gathered in front of Microsoftâ€™s booth.
1. Show began with dancing from the guiding girls.
2. Product explanation by Chinese.
3. Began distributing the free gifts. (Atmosphere looked liked a Rock concert.)
When the guiding girls asked â€œWindows?â€ the visitors raise their fists and answered â€œS E R V E R !!!!!â€ together. When the audience would respond, the loudest voice could get a special ballpoint pen and LED light. Then the loudest voice could get a USB memory device.
All right, I said to myself. Plus, I made up my mind do not return empty-handed. So I joined the crowd and stood in the second row.
ã€ŒS E R V E R !!!!!ã€
I used my loudest voice and tried my best â€¦â€¦
Finally, I got nothing.
Then I tried another booth. Similar to the Microsoft booth
I failed again.
On the whole, the increased size of the exhibition hall made me feel as thought there were visitors less than before even though I knew that to not be true. Itâ€™s good for me to see around at a leisurely pace. Hopefully I can attend again and see how the trade shows evolves.

You know the saying, “stop to smell the roses”? Well at Vinpower, we encourage our employees, friends and family to take some time to experience and enjoy the world around you. As an environmentally friendly company where we focus on recycling and reducing waste, the Earth and the sky above is extremely important to us. So it pleases me to showcase some of our employees and their hobbies that branch out and enlighten us as to how vast the world and universe is beyond our homes and work place. Enjoy the professionally taken photos from one of our valued Vinpower Digital employees:
Vinpower gazes at the Milky Way from Hehuanshan, Joy Mountain (11,207 ft), located in Central Taiwan. Hehuanshan is located within the Taroko Gorge National Park, one of the seven nationals park in Taiwan.
The constellations of stars make up the two zodiac sign noticeable in this captured shot: Scorpio and Sagittarius. Across Sagittarius, you will notice the nebulae around the stars.

When most customers purchase a duplicator, they probably assume theyâ€™re all the same and that the operating system behind the standalone duplicator is generally the same as well. Thatâ€™s where I want to correct this misconception. The standalone duplicator is unique in that it requires a special dedicated controller device that is small enough to fit within the confines of a duplicator casing, yet is inexpensive enough to allow the duplicator to be priced affordably for the general public. With these limitations, one cannot take a standard computer motherboard and just adapt it to the duplicators needs. Firstly itâ€™s not a dedicated device, secondly itâ€™s too large for most of the medium to smaller systems and lastly the cost of the components and software is prohibitive given the pricing constraints.
So every controller on the market has to be specially programmed by engineers to achieve perfect burning capabilities without errors. In itself this is not difficult if youâ€™re a skilled computer programmer, but the difficult part lies in programming these many functions and applications within a very limited capacity. I wonâ€™t get into the specifics, but just know that our programmers are constantly working to squeeze the maximum capabilities within the confines of their space limitations.
Programming is only one part of the controller development. The second major development hurdle is the board layout design and component configurations. You can have the best programmers in the world, but if the board layout and circuit components are not designed and utilized correctly, the controller will not be worth the code written on it. Being the only controller manufacturer that is also a system builder and designer, we have unique insight that helps us produce a stronger and more reliable controller both in software and hardware.
