Vinpower Digital Announces Industry's First Complete Labelflash Standalone DVD Publishing System
Posted Sep 1, 2009

Vinpower Digital announced today the release of the SharkCopier LF standalone manual tower DVD publishing systems. In a collaborative effort between Vinpower Digital and Labelflash, the new SharkCopier LF models offer an array of improved features, most notably the ability to inscribe text or full graphic labels directly onto DVDs without being connected to a computer.

The SharkCopier LF can be used as a publishing system by first creating the disc image art on a computer, then loading the image onto the standalone duplicator for disc label duplication. Vinpower Digital offers a simple Labelflash design software which allows the user to create their own custom labels or choose from existing template files. The duplicator can be used anywhere there is a suitable electrical outlet without being tied to a computer with these simple steps:

1) Load the Labelflash capable DVDs into the drives
a. Put the label side face down to print
2) The duplicator will laser-inscribe the programmed image onto the discs
3) Flip the disc over in the same drive onto the data duplicating side
4) The duplicator will copy the selected data
5) The duplicated discs will now have a label design and the specified data content

"Yamaha Corporation is pleased to work with Vinpower Digital in developing the world's first standalone Labelflash publishing systems, states Tatsuo Fushiki, Manager, AV Products Division at Yamaha Corporation. After years of effort and cooperation between our companies, the resulting products will make a positive impact on the DVD duplication and publishing market."

The Labelflash labeling process offers the ability to print and burn in one standalone system, no longer tying the user to a PC or limiting them to a mere 2 or 4 drive maximum capacity. The SharkCopier LF is available in various sizes and prints all discs simultaneously from 1-to-1 up to 1-to-15 to fit the needs of even the most demanding duplication job.

"The SharkCopier LF is an extension to our popular laser labeling standalone duplication products which will increase the demand for such products especially as we grow the marketplace in regions where Labelflash is more commonly used and recognized," proclaims Ryan Swerdloff, VP of Marketing at Vinpower Digital.

In addition to the data and label duplication features, all SharkCopier models offer dynamic hard drive partitions and the new Simultaneous Load & Copy feature. They still offer exceptional duplication capability at lightning fast speed along with market leading features for which the SharkCopier has been known, like Account Management, Auto Counter, Multi-language support, Drive firmware upgrade ability, and so much more that helped make the SharkCopier the preferred duplicator.

About Labelflash
LabelflashTM was developed through a joint cooperation between YAMAHA CORPORATION and FUJIFILM Corporation. It allows you to burn monochrome, multi-gradated pictures and/or write titles on the label side of DVD discs that utilize the special writing dye developed by FUJIFILM Corporation through the use of DVD writers with the LabelflashTM function. The quality of labels printed with inkjet printers easily deteriorate due to blemishes, scratches, blurring, and browning over time. On the other hand, in the LabelflashTM system, the imaging dye layer is located 0.6mm below the surface of the labeling side. Images last longer since the dye cannot be touched directly. These features tremendously improve durability for long-term storage.
