As more office workers use micro secure digital (SD) cards to store data on portable electronic devices such as mobile phones, the need to copy memory cards is growing. Xerox Corporation, through a licensing agreement with Vinpower Digital, today introduced a line of standalone, high-speed SD/MicroSD duplicators that eliminates the need for adapters, and makes it easier to create multiple copies of any SD or MicroSD memory card.
Until now, duplicating MicroSD cards, which are about the size of a fingernail, required a special adaptor. Making multiple copies of the cards was time consuming because each card had to be inserted individually into a personal computer to copy. The Xerox SD/MicroSD Duplicator eliminates the need for adaptors by providing both a standard size SD slot as well as a slot for the much smaller MicroSD.
“The ability to copy up to 15 SD or MicroSD cards at the same time adds a whole new level of flexibility to sharing data on the go,” said Ryan Swerdloff, vice president of sales and marketing at Vinpower Digital. “With the new duplicators you can easily pre-load content on MicroSD cards before a tradeshow, for example, and hand them out to potential customers on the floor.”
Vinpower Digital works with Xerox through an exclusive trademark licensing agreement to develop, market, and support Xerox-branded duplicators.
The new line features four different models that range from three to 15 SD and MicroSD writer ports. The standalone duplicators can operate independently of a computer, providing a reliable and inexpensive way to make multiple copies of any SD or MicroSD connected storage device. Additional features include:
- Dedicated MicroSD Slot – allows the user to copy from and/or onto MicroSD cards without the need for an adaptor
- Asynchronous Duplication – copies the SD and/or MicroSD cards as they are inserted for faster duplication
- Smart Copy – the unit only copies the data found on the SD or MicroSD device, which saves considerable time.
- Secure Erase – ensures that all trace of previous data/information stored on that flash device is overwritten and not capable of being retrieved.
The new product line is part of Xerox’s Digital Duplicator series, which includes standalone towers and automated USB, CD, DVD, Blu-ray, and LightScribe capable duplicators.
