Optical Disc Manufacturers saw huge spikes in stock prices as a result of last weeks massive global outages for key social media sites.

CD stock increase

Last week, there was an unexplained outage for major social media outlets, such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and others, due to what was called a ‘server configuration change’. Whatever the root cause was, the fact remains that millions of users from those sites were locked out and could not access their personal information, including pictures, videos, and other personal details. This sent a shockwave of concern about the safety of content on servers and caused a rush of investors to purchase shares in companies that focus on the manufacture of optical discs.

Why would problems with cloud-based networks and the servers that support them cause a rise in the demand for an older technology like optical discs? The reason is simple, cold storage! Cold storage is taking content offline and storing it on a safe back-up solution which can easily be accessed to restore any lost data quickly. The best and most secure method of cold storage are optical discs. That’s because optical discs are laser inscribed (burned) data into a physical write once disc, that once written to is impervious to having its content deleted, altered, or disrupted through cyber-attacks. Plus, optical discs can retain data for many many years, some archival versions promise up to 1,000 years. That means that not only are optical discs impervious to being disrupted from outside forces, but they will also hold that data securely for a long time without using any electricity or other power source, making them more cost efficient as well. Since optical discs are still used for digital storage, all content on the discs can be located and uploaded quickly and easily.

Once the public saw the potential pitfalls in the servers supporting the gigantic cloud-based networks, which I have been touting for years, they realized there needs to be a more secure back up solution. This prompted investors to purchase stocks of companies producing just such a product in record numbers. That’s why Vinpower continues to not only continue focusing on optical discs, but also work diligently to make improvements and ensure that our Optodisc line offers the best quality, most reliable, and cost effective discs on the market.

Vinpower news picked up by

Vinpower press release listed on Vinpower’s website:

Acquiring ACARD’s technology, not only allows Vinpower to develop newer and more advanced duplication products moving forward, but it also allows us to continue supporting ACARD’s extensive customer base with tech support. Vinpower has the knowhow and continued firmware updates that will allow us to provide both in warranty and out of warranty support to all of ACARD’s previous customer base. If you were an ACARD distributor, you don’t have to ditch your existing customer base or existing inventory because you feel there won’t be any support moving forward. Likewise, as an end user with ACARD duplicators, you no longer need to feel abandoned when you encounter troubles with your controller.

With Vinpower’s extensive knowledge of the duplication market and incorporating the acquisition of ACARD’s technology, we’ll be able to provide full support toward previous and current ACARD duplication hardware. Whether you purchased the ACARD product a few months ago or a few years ago, Vinpower can assist you.

The ACARD duplication controllers now offers DVD video copy protection

ACARD copy protect

To match Vinpower’s existing proprietary duplication controllers, all new optical disc ACARD duplication controllers will offer the ability to add copy protection to all DVD video content. Vinpower has developed one of the most secure and cost-effective methods to implement DVD copy protection, which is available on their full range of optical disc duplication hardware, which now includes the ACARD controller. The copy protection application is embedded directly into all duplicated DVD video content, which includes protection from unauthorized copying or ripping the content from those discs.

This is another value add that Vinpower can bring when it comes to its own controller or the recently acquired ACARD duplication controllers. The prior ACARD controllers were not able to provide copy protection. The new ACARD copy protection feature is extremely easy to produce and costs a fraction of what it would cost to use other methods of copy protection. In addition, the resulting protected discs have excellent playback compatibility, ensuring that you can play your protected content across all known optical disc players and player software that accept DVD±R media. This is a key functionality, as what’s the point of adding protection if the user can’t play the content on their preferred player or software.
