Vinpower Digital

Vinpower Digital has developed the first true standalone duplicator which can offer embedded copy protection. The unique Copy Protection Software (CPS) can embed a proprietary copy protection encryption into any DVD video master through a PC which can then be transferred onto the Vinpower Digital duplicator to produce as many copy protected reproductions as the user needs. Since CPS is software based as apposed to hardware based, there are no issues with compatibility with players like similar models on the market. In addition, CPS protects against both duplication and ripping for a double dose of protection whereas similar applications from competitors cannot block ripping.

In today’s savvy hi-tech world, consumers are often purchasing a single video and making copies for their friends which limit the overall sales. If you worked hard and put in a lot of effort and expense into creating your video project, you shouldn’t be restricted in the number of units you can sell because you can’t afford the high price of replicated copy protection. Instead by using Vinpower Digital’s CPS, you can feel secure at a fraction of the expense and time with no minimum or maximum quantities required.

How Copy Protection Works:
1. Install the supplied CPS software onto a suitable PC.
2. Plug in the CPS USB dongle with activated licenses into your PC's USB socket.
3. Take your DVD video master disc or file and by utilizing the special CPS application, follow the steps to embed the copy protection onto the master content.
4. Transfer the new copy protected master content image file from the PC onto an enabled duplicator, like Cronus, via external USB storage device or network.
5. Fill in the blank recordable DVD onto the input bin.
6. Start a new "Burn Image" job on Cronus system with the new copy protected master content image file.
