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 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.

Vinpower expanded their offering of its revolutionary one of a kind series of TrueAudio CD audio Copy and Compare capable duplication, by infinity. Well, maybe not infinity, but certainly by exponential growth by implementing this feature into our line of connectable daisy chain duplicators. When using Vinpower’s Daisy Chain duplicator controller with specified TrueAudio capability and with Vinpower’s line of modified TrueAudio capable drives. Whether the systems are preassembled or bought as components, the user can connect many towers together to make a single super capacity CD audio duplication hub. In doing so, the user will be able to accurately do a copy + compare for CD-R with audio recordings that were not recognized until Vinpower introduced it.
The problem with CD duplication towers were there was no way to perform a proper compare after the content was duplicated onto recordable CD-R discs. That’s because CD-R’s had no Error-correcting code (ECC) built into the design and there was no way to perform an accurate parity check through the duplicators. Which meant there was no way to make an exact 100% recreation of CD audio content. That was true until now. Vinpower created their exclusive line of TrueAudio duplication equipment that can perform the 1st ever True Copy and Compare feature for audio CD-R’s. This option will allow operators performing audio CD duplication the assurance that the copied discs will be an exact reproduction of the master content.
As I mentioned many times in the past, CD duplication, particularly audio CD, is still extremely strong in many territories, showing there’s still a need for a better and more reliable CD duplicator. Just because the overall optical disc market has decreased, it doesn’t mean the market has disappeared. In fact, the businesses that have stayed the course, are finding it’s worthwhile to continue investing in CD duplication hardware as they are picking up more clients that no longer find replication a viable option.
Of course these daisy chain towers can copy DVD as well, but the true advantage is the CD audio Copy and Compare functionality. If you’re looking to improve your reliability and confidence with your CD audio duplication jobs, contact Vinpower to learn more about our TrueAudio Duplicators.

Just like I discussed in the previous week’s email blast, high fidelity and lossless audio quality is becoming more popular with those that truly enjoy music or other forms of audio content. You don’t have to be an audiophile to truly appreciate the value of high quality audio. The problem is, the uncompressed lossless audio files are very large files and take up a lot of capacity on our players, which today are most typically your phone. Of course CD’s have near perfect sound quality, but it’s not always convenient to listed to CD’s. So what do you do when you want the digital quality of a CD but don’t want to lug around your entire CD collection and you don’t have the storage capacity on your phone for full sound of lossless audio files? The solution is easy, store those files on an iXflash drive!
With the iXflash drive, available in sizes from 32GB up to 512GB, you can store a huge array of music files, including lossless audio files, that can be played directly through your iPhone or iPad. Even lossless audio files like the hi-res flac files, which aren’t supported by iPhones but can still be played on an iPhone through the iXflash App, can be stored and played anytime you want. The iXflash gives you the freedom to play all your music while the iXflash is connected to your iPhone / iPad, or you can temporarily load select songs or a playlist onto your iPhone / iPad and when you’re done listening to them, remove them from the iPhone / iPad to free up more space. Yet, they remain on the iXflash for the next time you want to listen to those songs or programing.
We’ve all been there, no matter what capacity storage you buy with your iPhone, you seem to always battle running out of space. Between the hi-res pictures and videos, the never ending number of Apps and its stored data, and the confounding “other” content, there never seems to be enough storage when you need it. Since smart phones are less frequently used as a phone and more often used as out everyday camera, for social media, internet search engine, TV, and radio source, the items that often the odd man out are the music files. Don’t go back to the low-res compressed MP3 audio files that don’t provide the full musical fulfillment, get an iXflash and get the full concert experience whenever and wherever you are!
