Optodisc is the preferred alternative when Taiyo Yuden/JVC Stops Production

With the news that Taiyo Yuden stopping the production of all lines of Taiyo Yuden and JVC branded media, where can one find a suitable alternative? Fortunately, Vinpower developed the Optodisc line to follow the strict quality standards and reliability that Taiyo Yuden pioneered when they developed the 1st 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.

Optodisc was developed with the TY 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.

So regardless of whether you need an inkjet or thermal printable surface, or require a reflective silver lacquer finish, Optodisc has what you need across all formats, including CD-R, DVD±R, DVD±R DL, BD-R, and BD-R DL. Contact a Vinpower representative today for more details about the full Optodisc line.



Optodisc has been in the market since the early 2000’s, coinciding with the inception of recordable DVD media. Because of its longevity in the market, the Optodisc MID code is recognized by virtually all optical disc recorder drives from the early 2000’s, continuing through today. When Optodisc became insolvent, Vinpower acquired Optodisc’s trademark, disc formulas, IP’s, and MID code, which it would use to launch a new generation of Optodisc media. Vinpower has long been known as the leader in duplication hardware, so the inclusion of the Optodisc CD, DVD, and Blu-ray media is a natural extension of the line. With Optodisc’s technology and legacy MID code, Vinpower has created a better line of recordable media for the duplication market.
