Vinpower Europe Provides Adequate Alternative When Taiyo Yuden/JVC Stops Production

Wiesbaden, Germany (June 23, 2015) – With the news that Taiyo Yuden will stop the production of all lines of Taiyo Yuden and JVC branded media after summer, where can one find a suitable alternative? Fortunately, Vinpower developed the Plexdisc line, which is manufactured by Optodisc, to follow the strict quality standards that Taiyo Yuden pioneered when they developed the first recordable CD-R many years ago. The Taiyo Yuden (TY) and JVC brands have been the standard bearers for recordable CD-R and DVD±R for many years.

With the surprise news that they will shut down production, it leaves a large void in the market for high quality reliable recordable media by end of this year. But with its Optodisc line Vinpower has the perfect solution for all customers in need of high-quality discs.

Optodisc was developed with the Taiyo Yuden concept in mind. As a manufacturer of duplication hardware for over 15 years, Vinpower has a great understanding about recordable media and how it needs to hold up under the rigors and fast pace of the duplication market. “So when we developed the Optodisc line, we wanted to make sure that it was suitable for high volume production, but reliable enough to meet the high standards of the critical medical and storage markets.”, said Thorsten Fiedler, EMEA Sales Manager of Vinpower Europe.

So regardless of whether customers need an inkjet or thermal printable surface or require a reflective silver lacquer finish, Optodisc has what they need across all formats, including CD-R, DVD±R, DVD±R DL, BD-R, and BD-R DL. With offices in the Americas, Europe, China, and Taiwan, Vinpower can provide quick fulfillment, support, or advice anywhere in the world. This is just another reason in the long list of why Vinpower is the company to keep!
