Vinpower will introduce the ability to embed the official AACS Blu-ray Copy Protection through its Duplicators at the 2016 CES Trade Show


Vinpower will showcase their latest advance in the field of optical media duplication, official AACS Blu-ray Copy Protection through Duplication, during the CES trade show in Las Vegas, NV, the week of January 6th – 9th, 2016. Presently, if you want to embed AACS Copy Protection, which is the only recognized copy protection by the Blu-ray Disc Association, onto your Blu-ray content, you had to go through the replication process. Replication differs from duplication in that replication requires very costly large scale equipment that uses dyes and plastic to physically manufacture an optical disc. Duplication, uses very inexpensive hardware that can easily fit on a personal desk and uses recordable optical discs that are readily available. For replication, there’s typically a sizable minimum order quantity, while duplication you can make as few as 1 single copy with no greater expense or time.

So, whether you need to make 1 or thousands of copies of a Blu-ray master content, utilizing the easy to use and inexpensive to operate method of duplication is the easier and more obtainable choice. As Vinpower prepares to release Blu-ray duplicators with the ability to embed true AACS Blu-ray Copy Protection through them, production studios or independent videographers of all sizes can quickly and easily produce Blu-ray content that can offer the same protection as more costly replicated discs.

Vinpower’s Plextools software can identify the where a copy was created from


Vinpower’s version of Plextools, offers the improved functionality of being able to trace back the origin of which drive created that specific copy. Through the Plextools software, one could load a previously burned recordable disc and the software can identify the make, model, and internal serial number of the drive that burned that specific disc.

The application has numerous applications, but two of the key benefits are related to:
1. Identifying a bad drive: If customers are complaining that they are not able to view a project provided to them on a burned disc, often times that the result of a drive that is partially failing. If may pass the disc as successfully burned, but there could be glitches or burn marks that make it difficult for playback. By using Vinpower’s Plextools, you can identify which drive(s) those discs were burned from and replace the drive(s) to avoid making additional defective copies.

2. Tracing the source of unauthorized copies: If you have a project that is sensitive or was not authorized for others to make copies of, Vinpower’s Plextools can identify the exact internal serial number(s) of the drive(s) that created those discs and enable you to better determine who made the unauthorized copies based on who owns the drive(s) that burned those discs. Just like fingerprints, there’s no way to erase the identifying marks, even if the external serial number is removed, the internal serial number cannot be altered or destroyed. Even if the discs do not contain watermarks, Plextools can determine what burned that disc to help you determine who the culprit is.

This is just one beneficial feature provided through Vinpower’s Plextools, if you’d like more information about it or where you can get it, visit Vinpower’s website at or contact a Vinpower sales representative near you.

With nearly 2 million Americans purchasing the new Adele CD in the 1st week, shows optical discs are still very desirable in the US and around the world.


It was announced that from Nov. 20th – Nov. 26th, musical artist Adele, sold over 3.38 million copies of her latest album “25” in the US alone. Of those sales, over 1.7 million of her albums were from actual compact discs rather than digital downloads. That shows that even though digital downloads of music are still very prevalent, there is still a large population of consumers that prefer a tangible medium, like a CD, to purchase and listen to their music.

You don’t have to be a megastar like Adele to get people to buy your CD. In fact, with inexpensive recording equipment and disc duplication hardware, like the Vinpower line of optical disc duplicators, smaller independent artists have an even better opportunity to get their music heard by selling CD’s to their fans than ever before. When you’re performing in front of an audience and they are anxious to purchase a copy of your CD, why send them to a website and risk losing the sale? It’s better to have physical compact discs available on site or use a Vinpower duplicator along with Optodisc media to create new CD’s on the spot in a couple of minutes.

The Compact Disc is very much alive and will continue to be a very prominent medium along with digital downloads. Don’t believe me, just ask the nearly 2 million people in the US that purchased a physical Compact Disc of Adele’s album recently and I’m sure there will be plenty more that will continue to do so in the weeks ahead.
