Vinpower's Exclusive Pioneer BDR-212V Drive

“Even though it’s a Blu-ray drive, the exclusive Pioneer BDR-212V drive, developed in cooperation between Vinpower and Pioneer, improves the DVD burning capabilities beyond those of competing DVD drives, yet remains competitively priced.”

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.    

“Pioneer recognizes the value of the duplication market and the importance of providing strong and stable DVD±R recording. We are proud to offer the Pioneer drive for the global duplication market,” a representative of Pioneer Corporation stated.

“Many of today’s DVD recorder drives do not provide the necessary writing quality when it comes to burning recordable DVD’s,” explains Vinpower Digital’s C.E.O., Calvin Chang. “Even though it’s a Blu-ray drive, the exclusive Pioneer BDR-212V drive, developed in cooperation between Vinpower and Pioneer, improves the DVD burning capabilities beyond those of competing DVD drives, yet remains competitively priced.”

The Pioneer BDR-212V drive offers many advantages to other standard half height burner drives, as it is built using true Japanese designs for a stronger and more reliable drive. With Vinpower’s support, Pioneer improved the drive’s ability to virtually eliminate the concentric irregular burn marks on the recording layer across all DVD5 media, regardless of the media quality. These visible “Donut Rings” often cause many duplication facilities to declare the media as defective. In removing this impediment, DVD duplication production will have a greater success rate. Through these modifications, the exclusive BDR-212V drive ensures an even and uniform burning appearance across the full circumference of the disc, whether burning just 1 disc or during high volume duplication production.

“The focus of most standard CD/DVD ODD manufacturers is to cost down, which directly affects the drive’s performance and functionality,” explains Vinpower Digital’s Vice President, Ryan Swerdloff. “The Pioneer drives are a throwback to a time when ODD drives were robust and better suited to the rigors of the demanding duplication market, which is why we worked with Pioneer to develop the BDR-212V model.”
