Vinpower Digital announced today that all new ACARD controller production, beginning in March 2019, will include the ability to implement DVD copy protection, using Vinpower’s proprietary CopyLock application. The CopyLock technology allows users the ability to embed copy protection into their original master discs. The ACARD controller can enable the CopyLock embedded master disc to transfer that protection, so that every copy will be produced with copy protection to help prevent the unauthorized reproduction of proprietary video content.
CopyLock is a patented technology, developed by Vinpower, Inc., that allows a device to embed a DVD video master disc with the ability to protect against both reproduction and ripping of the protected content during the initial duplication process. The CopyLock technology can be utilized via a license dongle or directly through the duplicator without requiring a license if utilized with specific authorized Optodisc manufactured media.Add a comment

Addonics Technologies today announced the M2/SSD/HDD Duplicator -- a family of high-speed duplicators designed for making multiple copies of M2 (NGFF) SSD or 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD media from a single master drive.
Each duplicator comes bundled with a 2.5" M2 (NGFF) flash drive kit that turns a M2 (NGFF) card into a 2.5" SATA SSD. You can mix and match the M2 (NGFF) SSD, 2.5" SSD or standard SATA hard drives into the duplicator, which makes it a handy tool for transferring content between multiple media formats.
There is no computer needed or complex software required to operate any Addonics duplicator. Just open the doors on the drive bays, load the master media into the source bay and the target media of capacity equal or larger into the target bays, lock the drive doors and push the start button to start the copying process. Designed with snap-in drive bays, drives can be easily added or removed without any special tool, just like an ordinary cassette tape.

Addonics Technologies today announced a family of high speed duplicators that make multiple copies of mSATA SSDs, 2.5-inch SATA HDD/SSDs or micro SATA drives from a single master drive.
Each duplicator comes bundled with a set of 2.5-inch mSATA flash drive kits that turn a mSATA SSD into a 2.5-inch SATA SSD. Depending on model, you can mix and match the mSATA SSD and 2.5-inch SATA hard drive, or the mSATA SSD and micro SATA drive in the duplicator, which makes it a handy tool for transferring the content between the mSATA card and 2.5-inch hard drive or the mSATA card and micro SATA drive.
These stand-alone duplicators offer a distinct advantage because they do not tie up computer resources. They are also operating system independent with a maximum copying speed of 90 MB/sec depending on the media. To start copying, just open the drive bays, load the master media into the source bay, and load equal or larger capacity target media into the target bay. The result is an exact sector-by-sector duplicate including the master boot record. The cloned drive works just like the original.
