Optical Discs are one of the safest and most economical way to backup and archive all your digital content.

Archive memories

While millions if not billions of people are stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are filling our time on our computers or mobile devices. When we’re not working, be it remotely or from an office, many of us find ourselves endlessly engaged in social media and/or playing online games, looking for an escape from the doldrums of quarantine life. What we’re not paying attention to is the exponentially growing amount of data in the form of pictures, videos, data files, music, movies, etc. that just sits on our computer hard drives or the memory on our mobile devices.

Instead of just buying larger and larger hard drives for content we rarely if ever look at, it’s much cheaper and more reliable to offload that old/cold content onto archival quality optical discs. Now that there’s consumer grade optical discs with up to 128GB of storage, one can store over a TB of data on just 10 optical discs. Plus, optical disc are extremely easy to recall the content and when kept under the proper conditions, can last decades if not centuries.

While you’re home, why not spare a little time to protect your precious memories, from the litany of baby pictures to that last vacation you took and look back on fondly. It’s incredibly easy to do and can be done over time in short increments, so you can focus on binging the next great series through one of the many streaming services vying for your attention. Do something for yourself that you can pass down, so future generations can laugh at your crazy Coronavirus hairdos and exploits to keep yourself entertained during these crazy times!

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.

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.
