Vinpower offers the first ever Duplicator offering True Audio Copy and Compare Capability

true audio copy and compare

When the CD was introduced in the early 1980’s, it took the world by storm. The ability to hear music in such pristine clarity and an entire album could be contained on 1 side, meant the listener didn’t have to stop the music to turn the record or cassette to side B. At that time, there was only replicated CD’s as the recordable CD-R wasn’t invented or probably thought of at that time. By the early 90’s, the 1st recordable CD-R’s were introduced and even though the early versions were very expensive and slow, it didn’t take long for the CD-R to take off either. As the prices dropped and accessibility of recordable drives and CD-R’s increased, CD duplication towers began popping up all over.

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 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.

CDRLabs.com declares, “The PioData iXflash is a great choice for consumers looking to backup or extend the storage of their iPhone or iPad.”

cdrlabs review ixflash

The iXflash is a tremendous tool for the iPhone / iPad. The iXflash has been extremely helpful for a great number of people around the world. Not only can the device easily backup all of your photos and videos, but you can also record videos directly to the iXflash without using any of your iPhone / iPad’s memory. You can store a great number of movies, music, files, and many other digital content, including versions that are not compatible with an iPhone / iPad without the iXflash app, as well as numerous other everyday helpful features. For those that already have an iXflash, you clearly understand the benefits. For those who have yet to purchase one, if you have an iPhone or and iPad, you would be doing yourself a great disservice if you didn’t pick one up for you and those you love this holiday season.

When I say the iXflash is the perfect tool for any iPhone / iPad user, you don’t have to take my word for it, click on the below link to read the review from the highly respected and accredited storage review site, CDRLabs.com:

Archival discs are the best option for cold storage as digital content providers look for the most effective way to reduce volume on their server farms

Archival Disc business

Every time you send an email, post a picture on social media (like Facebook), or send a snarky message through Twitter, and so on, you leave a digital footprint that is kept and stored by the platform you’re using. That means that companies like Facebook, Google, WhatsApp, etc. need to maintain adequate server farms to hold not just recent data storage, but also years of previous data. That old content is referred to as “cold data” because it’s rarely retrieved and essentially on ice until it’s needed again. Since cold data is not accessed frequently, to free up space for current and future content, the cold data is often offloaded onto another digital platform that can be easily stored, retrieved, and doesn’t take a lot of space, both physically and electronically. That makes optical discs the ideal storage medium for Cold Data as it fulfills all of the requirements.

In 2016, the thinktank IDC concluded that the world’s data storage stood at 16ZB, (that’s Zettabytes, with a “Z”, which is 1 trillion Gigabytes, that’s trillion with a “T”). Based on current and expected future internet usage, the IDC anticipates that number to increase to 163ZB’s by 2020. That means in 4 short years, we would have all contributed nearly 150 more Zettabytes or 150 trillion GB’s of digital content held in electronic storage. Based on these numbers, it’s expected that even if only 10% of that content needs to be offloaded onto Archival Discs (AD), which currently hold 300GB each, it would take roughly 800 million AD’s to hold that content resulting in a windfall of approx. USD $3 billion in revenue for the company(ies) that can tap into this growing market. That is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of potential for the AD market. So, this is the perfect time to get in and take advantage of the future of the optical evolution. That is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of potential for the AD market.

The reliability of the drive parts is the difference between a long life and frequently paying for replacement drives!

Drive reliability

When most people think about the most critical part(s) of an Optical Disc Drive (ODD), they typically think of the laser diode that reads the discs. Of course, that is a critical element and without it the drive cannot function. However, there is another critical element that is often overlooked and not given much consideration, the disc tray mechanism. That includes not just the tray itself, but also the gears, pulleys, and sliding mechanisms that allow it to extend and recoil smoothly and consistently.

Often, because it’s not seen as critical as other components, because production drives are designed for single drive PC use, many manufactures don’t put much thought behind how to enhance it. The problem is that while a typical computer owner with an internal disc recorder drive may open and close the drive infrequently, a duplication equipment user will depend on those drives opening and closing potentially hundreds or even thousands of times a day.

That’s why Vinpower’s line of duplication focused ODD’s ensure the drive tray is suitable for the real-world duplication environment. Vinpower’s PLUS and ROBOT PLUS drives are 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.

Autoloaders require extended trays with more give and flexibility while continuously offering consistent tray extension. Since Vinpower produces its own line of autoloaders, we are uniquely qualified to understand the complications and the abuse these drive trays endure day in and day out, so we are most qualified to design a drive tray mechanism to function under these specific conditions.

If you are a duplicator or manufacture duplication equipment, be it manual towers or robotic autoloaders, contact Vinpower through our website, www.vinpowerdigital.com, or through a member of our sales and support staff to get more details about which of our many ODD’s would be the right fit for you.

The Retail market is changing by shrinking the marketplace, good to know that OPTODISC still supports the channel.

OPTODISC good for retail

It’s not difficult to see that the landscape for the retail marketplace is completely different than even just 5 to 10 years ago. At one time, there were strong distribution centers and retail stores and sites that gave the consumer choices and allowed for a healthy channel for manufacturers, distributors, and resellers to all coexist. Now, it feels as though those channels are contracting and many larger manufacturers are bypassing the middlemen and going direct to the consumers. Platforms like Amazon make it easy to sell direct, which has increasingly shrunk the marketplace. Long time staples in the retail market, like Toys R Us, Blockbuster, Radio Shack, and many many others have all gone the way of the Dodo bird, with unrest of similar major retails like Sears to follow. The market is trending toward new ways of consuming products and the lines between manufacturers and their dealer channels are becoming blurred, often competing directly against those they claim to support.

If you’re in the duplication market, you’re already concerned about the shrinking marketplace for your product or service. You don’t want to worry about whether you are being undercut through direct competition from your suppliers. The good news is that Vinpower’s OPTODISC gives you an alternative to the the shrinking network of options for high quality, low cost, recordable optical discs. OPTODISC respects the channel and wants to see a healthy marketplace, even in a niche field like ours. Plus, OPTODISC offers virtually every format of media, with every surface type, like white inkjet, white thermal, silver top, logo top, etc., meaning you don’t have to sacrifice options when looking for a new reliable source of media. OPTODISC maintains the highest levels of quality, reliability, and compatibility that can only be found in a smaller, more focused factory. Plus, with our lower overhead, we can offer similar and even better pricing when compared to the major factories.

OPTODISC can OEM and provide specialized packaging to make sure you can meet your customer’s requirements while maintaining the differentiation needed to be competitive in the market. OPTODISC respects the autonomy of the sales channels, and we want to build you up so your growth in turn helps propel our growth. As the saying goes, the rising tide lifts all boats…
