Vinpower Digital (“Vinpower”), a recognized global manufacturer and distributor of digital duplication equipment, media, and accessories, is announcing the release of the new exclusive line of Moser Baer optical disc media. The initial offerings will focus on the Safari and Zebra lines of recordable CD’s and DVD’s in select global markets across North and South America, parts of Asia, and Europe.
Moser Baer was founded in 1983, with a focus on digital storage. It was in 1999, that Moser Baer set up a high-capacity plant to manufacture recordable Compact Disks (CD-Rs) and recordable Digital Versatile Disks (DVD recordables), with a natural progression into recordable Blu-ray (BD-R) in 2007. At its peak, Moser Baer was exporting around 85 percent of its production with a presence in over 100 countries. Unfortunately, due to a number of mitigating factors, the company was no longer able to remain solvent and ordered liquidated due to its bankruptcy on 20 September 2018.
In 2020, Vinpower acquired and took over full production of the most common slate of Moser Baer media commodities, primarily optical discs and flash media, including USB and SSD storage products. In order to accommodate the full complement of digital storage users, Moser Baer’s digital storage product lines include both high end professional grade media along with more price sensitive consumer grade items.Add a comment

Vinpower Digital (“Vinpower”), a recognized global manufacturer and distributor of digital duplication equipment and accessories, is announcing the release of the new exclusive BDR-212V 16x internal BD/DVD/CD Half Height Optical Disc Drive (ODD), in collaboration with Pioneer Corporation (“Pioneer”).
As a global leader in the duplication market, Vinpower continues to see strong demand for single layer 4.7GB DVD-R and DVD+R (“DVD5”) recordable media around the globe. However, most of the standard DVD writer drives on the market are not suitable for large scale constant DVD5 recording, as is needed in the duplication market. To overcome this lack of capabilities with DVD5 media, Vinpower joined forces with Pioneer to create the Pioneer BDR-212V drive. The BDR-212V drive is a Blu-ray/DVD/CD writer drive in which the DVD±R writing functionality has been enhanced by greatly decreasing the visibility of uneven symmetrical burn-in marks on the disc’s recording side (often referred to as Donut Rings), specifically for the popular single layer DVD5 media, especially fine tuning the burning strategy for the OPTODISC line of DVD, including 16x DVD-R, 16x DVD+R, 8x DVD-R, and 8x DVD+R.Add a comment
