Vinpower’s Blu-ray Safe Copy Technology

Vinpower has developed a new technology that ensures the best and most compatible duplication of Blu-ray content.

Blu-ray discs have been a wonderful invention and a true innovation to optical discs. However, today’s duplication equipment is still catching up on how to consistently, securely copy Blu-ray content accurately and reliably. Even though the costs of BD-R media has dropped considerably, the time to copy BD content and the need to ensure accurate reproductions has not changed. Only Vinpower has consistently worked to meet the growing demands and changes of the Blu-ray market.

The BD Safe Copy works by improving the quality and ensuring the compatibility of the disc while it’s being copied so that the user can rest assured the finished product would be as good and in some cases, even better, than the original master used to make the copies. This enhanced process for the BD Safe Copy is available on all current Vinpower Blu-ray duplication equipment. Enquire today with an Octave Systems representative if you’d like to learn more about this remarkable capability.

3D Printer Accessories from Octave

Review by jds232323

I was sent a message over the holidays from about some new accessories they were introducing for our Afinia/Up! 3d printers. I decided to buy one of each because they sounded like great addons for a decent price, a new switch for printing non OEM filament, a nice cutting tool kit, and borosilicate glass for the print bed. They all came to my door before Xmas and are all great additions to the Afinia/Up printers. The switch installs in seconds (so easy and video on YouTube from user Max* shows install procedure). Nice stuff!
