Vinpower Europe Provides Alternative as Taiyo Yuden/JVC Stops Optical Disk Production

With CD-R, DVD±R, DVD±R DL, BD-R, and BD-R DL media from Optodisc

With the news that Taiyo Yuden, Co, Ltd. will stop the production of all lines of Taiyo Yuden Co. Ltd. and JVC branded media after summer, where can one find a suitable alternative?


Vinpower Digital, Inc. developed the Plexdisc line, which is manufactured by Optodisc, Inc., to follow the quality standards and reliability that Taiyo Yuden pioneered when they developed the first recordable CD-R many years ago. The Taiyo Yuden and JVC brands have been the standard bearers for recordable CD-R and DVD±R for many years.

With the news that they will shut down production, it leaves a void in the market for reliable recordable media by end of this year. B

Optodisc was developed with the Taiyo Yuden concept in mind. As a manufacturer of duplication hardware for over 15 years, Vinpower has an 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, sales manager, 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.
