The future of digital storage, like Vinpower, remains focused on optical discs

I have continued to propagate that optical discs are not only going to remain a viable method of digital storage, but continue to grow as a larger and more effective method of large data storage. Recently, an article about studies to drastically increase the storage capacity of optical discs was published online, which you can find here: https://www.shine.cn/news/metro/2102255107/. Typically I would paraphrase the articles in my own words, but in this case, it is short enough that I posted the entire article below for your enlightenment and enjoyment:

Local scientists have found a new approach to high-capacity data storage, making a portable big data center possible.

The amount of data we produce every day is beyond imagination in this era of information explosion.

Estimates show that global data will amount up to 175 ZB (Zettabytes; 1 ZB equals 1 billion Terabytes or 1 trillion Gigabytes) in 2025. If 175 ZB were stored on Blu-ray disks, the disk stack would be 23 times the distance to the Moon.

Scientists from the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology (USST) have offered a new approach for next-generation nanoscale optical data storage, which can greatly increase storage capacity while decreasing energy consumption.

They conjugated graphene oxide and lanthanide-doped upconversion nanoparticles, which are synthesized by adding lanthanides, the rare-earth elements, into nanoparticles and are able to convert infrared light into UV-visible light.

Using the nanocomposites as storage media combined with a sub-diffraction optical writing method, it is possible to develop a 12-centimeter-in-diameter optical disk that can store 700 TB, equal to the capacity of 28,000 Blu-ray discs.

This finding provides a new approach to develop new optical disks which demand lower energy consumption and have a long lifespan.

Professor Zhang Qiming said it has great potential to be used in the big data centers.

“Maybe in the future a standard football field-sized big data center can be replaced by a portable disk,” he said.

Simone Lamon, a postdoctoral research fellow of USST, said the new optical storage technology is likely to greatly support the development of artificial intelligence technology. He believed it will usher in an information revolution.

The research was conducted by University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, RMIT University and National University of Singapore. It has been published in scientific journal “Science Advances.”

Independent film has blossomed in the absence of Hollywood blockbusters, It’s your content, you should protect it!

Independent-film-Copy-Protection

After living through a year of quarantining and isolation due to COVID restrictions, thanks to new vaccines, the world is starting to open up. However, that prolonged time with little to do and few places to go, gave light to innovation. There’s only so many old shows you can binge watch on streaming services until people begin thirsting for new interesting content. Thankfully, there are lots of creative people with lots of time and ideas happy to fill the gap.

Today’s technology makes it so that everyone with a cell phone, a vision, and editing software can make their own movies these days. Picture for a moment that you created digital video content that you want to sell or control who you share with, what are your limitations? One issue could be that those that view your content, decide to make copies or upload online without your permission or consent. If you were hoping to sell that content, then you no longer have the opportunity because someone took that decision from you and made it available for free to anyone. If you had hoped to keep the content private, now it’s been released onto the web or passed from person to person for all to share and see without your ability to selectively decide who can view the content and who can’t. Protecting content is not just a problem for large enterprise or movie studios, it can be an everyone’s problem.

Vinpower has been developing hardware and software tools that enable companies and individuals to keep their content safe through our line of DVD and Blu-ray video copy protection capability. It shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg just to protect what’s rightfully yours. Don’t take any chances with your digital video content, add Vinpower’s copy protection and rest easier knowing that you don’t have to be a victim.

Vinpower’s new Pioneer BDR-212V ROBOT PLUS drive is available for use in automated duplicators

Pioneer-212V-auto-v1

Vinpower Digital announced the release of the new Vinpower exclusive Pioneer BDR-212V 16x internal BD/DVD/CD Half Height Optical Disc Drive (ODD), in collaboration with Pioneer Corporation, last month. It’s been a great benefit for those in the duplication world with manual tower duplicators. However, autoloaders require more optimization, including extended trays with more give and flexibility while continuously offering consistent tray extension.

That’s why we are announcing the introduction of the Pioneer BDR-212V ROBOT PLUS version, which is available with an extended tray and enhanced mechanisms that allow it to work with robotic automated duplicators. Vinpower’s Pioneer BDR-212V ROBOT PLUS drive is enhanced to allow thousands of in and out operation without failure. We physically modify each drive to handle the rigors of the duplication environment, especially for robotic autoloader duplicators.

Because of the BDR-212V’s added DVD±R enhancements, it makes the ROBOT PLUS version perfect for both CD/DVD and Blu-ray duplication. Plus, it’s compatible with virtually every automated duplicator or publishing system on the market or in your production line.

To learn more about the BDR-212V drive, contact Vinpower Digital directly, or visit

You can take extended video and perform on the fly editing with the iXflash.

ixflash-video-feature

Last week, I shared an interview that took place during CES 2021 related to our upcoming iXflash Cube with Carl McLarty or McLarty Films. While conducting that interview, we also discussed the values of the original iXflash and how useful it can be for the everyday user, especially someone that likes to take a lot of videos. The interviewer, Carl was quite impressed and recounted a time when he lost all the videos he had on his iPhone while traveling abroad. Because he didn’t have internet access and therefore no access to the cloud, he couldn’t upload his videos to his cloud storage at that time. Later, while at the beach, his iPhone became waterlogged and he lost all the content, including all the photos and videos he took. He mentioned, if he had the iXflash, he could have backed up his content beforehand and wouldn’t have lost everything.

As a thank you for the interview and because we enjoyed the conversation, we sent him an iXflash for his personal use. Upon receiving the iXflash and completely unprompted, Carl made a short video focusing on another of the virtues the iXflash offers, being able to record video directly to the iXflash without using any of the memory on the iPhone. As an added bonus for this feature, you can even pause the video and restart it, in essence editing on the fly, for an even better and more useful experience.

See Carl’s short video about the iXflash from the below link:

Vinpower’s C.E.O. Calvin Chang interviewed during CES 2021 for our upcoming iXflash Cube product

Vin-interview-CESn1

Even though the 2021 CES was all virtual, Vinpower was fortunate to still be able to catch the attention of a number of interested parties as well as press. In one such interview, Vinpower’s C.E.O. Calvin Chang was interviewed by Carl McLarty of McLarty Films regarding an upcoming product we promoted at CES, the iXflash Cube.

The iXflash Cube is a brilliant device that, when teamed with our iOS App, can backup all of your photos and videos stored on your iPhone or iPad, (“iDevice”), all while your “iDevice” is charging. Additionally, when your “iDevice” is connected to the internet, it can also backup photos and videos stored on your iCloud account. In essence, the iXflash Cube is performing two critical functions at once; backing up your critical content and charging your “iDevice” simultaneously. You never have to worry about losing previous memories or draining your iPhone/iPad while backing them up. The iXflash Cube will be available late Q1 or early Q2 this year and will be offered at a very attractive price point.

The interview is very informative and we welcome you to view it for yourself. See the YouTube video of the interview from the below link:

Word is getting out about the benefits of Vinpower’s exclusive Pioneer BDR-212V Drive

BDR-212V-press-release

Vinpower Digital announced the release of the new Vinpower exclusive Pioneer BDR-212V 16x internal BD/DVD/CD Half Height Optical Disc Drive (ODD), in collaboration with Pioneer Corporation, last month and people are taking notice. Because of the BDR-212V’s added DVD±R enhancements, we have had a number of requests for these drives from duplication houses and studios that create a lot of single layer DVD content. We found they were tired of high failure rates after only a few months of operation or customers complaining about the heavy burn-in marks on the recording side of the disc, saying they looked unprofessional. The BDR-212V virtually eliminates both concerns as the drive can be rebooted when seeing higher failure rates to return to peak performance and it virtually eliminates the uneven symmetrical burn-in marks on the disc’s recording side of single layer recordable DVD’s (often referred to as Donut Rings).

After the press release for the BDR-212V drive, we had a number of inquiries related to the drive, including the below press interview that was released last week:

Last chance to see Vinpower Digital and all the other exhibitors online at CES

2021-CES-online

Last chance to see Vinpower Digital and all the other exhibitors online at CES

Due to the pandemic, CES was held digitally this week, allowing visitors the opportunity to visit every showroom from the comfort of their own home or office. Today is the last day of the show and your last chance to visit Vinpower’s booth to see what new products we’re exhibiting at the show. It’s not the same as being able to visit the show in person, but it’s a lot safer and more convenient to be able to digitally peruse the digital showrooms in your pajamas.

Vinpower is highlighting our collaboration with Pioneer’s BDR-212V drive. Vinpower worked with Pioneer to improve the DVD burning capability and drive longevity to improve the drive for the higher production duplication market. Hence the V in the model number stands for Vinpower. In addition, we are showcasing our broader line of duplication hardware and media.

We also highlighted our line of Apple iOS mobile iPhone and iPad accessories, in particular the iXflash series. The iXflash is the ultra-portable large capacity iPhone / iPad flash drive that allows users to backup their photos and videos, watch movies, listen to music, view and edit files, including zip files, and so much more.

For more details about this product or any product in the Vinpower offering, please visit our website www.vinpowerdigital.com, or contact a representative near you.

The iXflash product review from the Taiwanese influencer 3C Tim is now available with subtitles in multiple difference languages.

ixflash-3CTim-Multilingual

When I first emailed everyone about the product review from the renowned Taiwanese influencer, 3C Tim, I have to provide a summary recap for those that don’t speak Mandarin Chinese, because there were no subtitles available. Ultimately, that limited the full scope of the audience we could reach. We’ve rectified that somewhat by adding translated subtitles for a number of different languages, such as English, German, Spanish and Japanese.

We welcome you to either view the video again with the proper sub-titles, or for the first time, so that you can get an unbiased clear review of the iXflash and all the benefits it can bring any user with an iPhone or other iOS device.
