Yours.co to Debut New Product at CES 2018

Monday, 8 January, 2018

Every Chapter of your Family’s Life is Professionally Edited and in One Place

LAS VEGAS – Jan. 8, 2018 Yours.co, a personal digital media application for families, today announced its new application that professionally edits videos stored on a smart phone into beautiful home movies. It is as simple as uploading the videos and photos to the Yours.co application, and the platform takes care of the rest.

Users simply upload video and images through an iOS app and Yours.co technology automatically adds music, transitions and effects to create a Magic Movie™ for family viewing anytime and anywhere. Currently users will receive a DVD, but memories will also be stored in the cloud and be made available through an online streaming channel later in 2018, so users can access their home movies on any device and share them with family and friends afar.

Now, family memories that have been sitting on personal mobile devices get the attention they deserve, so users can focus on making more memories not editing them.

“The typical consumer has thousands of pictures or hundreds of videos stored on their smart phones. Yours.co is perfect for today’s busy families,” said Paul Brockbank, CEO, Yours.co. “The pictures of your wedding, last year’s vacation or that video of your child’s first steps are irreplaceable and often live on your mobile device and are rarely shared. This is due to the time it takes to upload, edit and then share the final video. We automate the full process, helping transform these videos from the small mobile device screen to the large screen in your home – taking the hassle out of video editing, so you can simply upload and go.”

As part of the two-tiered launch strategy, Yours.co will also launch in the summer of 2018 a personal video streaming solution. These professionally curated videos will not only be delivered on DVD, but also served up on an upcoming personal streaming site for families to share their vacations, birthdays and other special occasions with anyone at any time.

Yours.co debut new product

Availability – The Yours.co app will be available in Q1 of 2018.

About Yours.co

Yours.co consolidates mobile device photos and videos into a central location, performs an automated professional edit of the content, and makes it available to consume on any home medium (TV, computer, digital device). Creating moments and sharing them with others has never been easier. www.yours.co

Yours.co Offers Permanent Physical Backup of Photos and Videos Stored in the Cloud

Wednesday, 26 October, 2016

 

  • Monthly service automates the creation of a physical archive of photos and videos stored on popular sites like Instagram, Google Photos, Facebook and Dropbox
  • Data is burned onto MDISCs that boast up to 1000-year shelf life
  • Discs are sent directly to user’s home or stored in a secure storage facility
  • Yours.co offers $10,000 guarantee on data accessibility

 

November 1, 2016 – American Fork, Utah – Yours.co today announced the launch of a new service that makes a permanent physical copy of photos and videos stored in the cloud.  The offering automates the secure backup of data stored on Instagram, Flickr, Google Photos, Dropbox, Facebook and Google Drive. Each month, Yours.co burns your data to an MDISC, an archive-grade optical media disc that boasts a 1000-year shelf life. Yours.co then sends the discs to either a home address or secure storage facility to ensure that data is and remains yours. The company further offers a $10,000 guarantee to subscribers that photos and videos Yours.co burns to discs will remain accessible to them throughout their lifetimes.

The challenge many face is to find a reliable and long-term way to archive important personal data. Backing up photos and videos is not only time consuming and complex but is also limiting as data on flash or external hard drives have limited shelf-lives. And while cloud storage services are convenient and a great way to sync data across devices, most cloud companies do not take responsibility for data security and loss.  The current paradigm is temporary as options for personal backup and data archiving are limited and offer no guarantees.

Physical backup and archiveChallenges
External hard drives Average shelf-life of 5-7 years, requiring additional investment to replace aging drives and to scale.
Flash drivesAverage shelf-life of 3-5 years.
Writable optical mediaData is recorded on an organic layer that degrades over time. Shelf-life of 3-5 years.
CloudEasy and convenient but offers no guarantees when it comes to long-term availability of data.

“The typical consumer has literally thousands of pictures or videos stored on various electronic, storage devices and cloud services. And yet, most don’t understand the limitations of these storage media that make data loss a real possibility. The pictures of your wedding, last year’s vacation or that video of your child’s first steps are irreplaceable. Losing any of them would be tragic. Yet people lose photos and videos all the time – and don’t know it,” said Paul Brockbank, CEO, Yours.co.

How Yours.co works

Yours.co is an easy, secure and automated solution to create archive copies of your files located on various cloud services. Setting up a monthly service plan is simple. Customers can register and login using Facebook, Google or by providing an email address. Users can then choose cloud accounts from which they wish to securely archive their photos and videos. During checkout, one can select either a monthly plan for $8 or an annual plan for $89.

As part of the subscription, a user can choose to either to have discs sent directly to a home address or a secure storage vault. The modern vault carved into the mountain is so secure, it can even withstand a nuclear attack. The vault also offers automated stack and retrieve storage of your discs, so when a customer needs to access files, Yours.co simply retrieves the disc and sends it in the mail for a nominal fee. For an additional $60 per year, customers can have a copy sent both to a home address and the vault. From upload to delivery of the discs to the selected location, your data will remain completely secure and private. Yours.co is so confident in its technology, the company is even willing to offer a unique, $10,000 guarantee that the files it burns to MDISCS will remain accessible to you throughout your lifetime.

“Yours.co solves a huge problem. Making a permanent physical backup of your most important memories is incredibly hard and if you’ve ever tried to do it yourself, you know what I mean. We wanted Yours to be simple and feel familiar — something you could set up in just a matter of clicks.” Justin Whittaker, executive vice president Product, Yours.co

An archive that can last longer than 10 lifetimes

Yours.co can boast longer archival capabilities than nearly any other product on the market thanks to its patented MDISC technology, the leading archive-grade optical media disc. Compared with other optical media where data is stored in an organic dye layer that degrades over time, MDISC’s method is to etch data like your photos and videos into a rock-like layer that is immune to data rot. The beauty of an MDISC from Yours.co is that the discs are so robust, they’ll still be around for generations to come. Also, an MDISC can be read in nearly any Blu-ray reader and can hold up to 100GB of photos and video on one disc. This technology is so reliable, it’s used by The White House, NASA, and The Department of Defense.

Consumers can start today to create a permanent archive of the photos and videos that matter most to them by registering at Yours.co.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 15 debuts M-DISC support

Wednesday, 10 December, 2014

December 8, 2014 – 17:15 by  of SoftwareCrew.com

Ashampoo Burning Studio 15German multimedia developer Ashampoo has unveiled the latest edition of its flagship disc mastering suite, Ashampoo Burning Studio 15.

The headline addition is new support for M-DISC(yours.co), an optical media type which, in theory, can remain readable for 1,000 years.

Audio improvements start with support for recording from Windows audio devices, for example to add a narration to a slideshow.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 15

The suite can now work with OPUS audio files, and perhaps less usefully, there are optional sound effects for videos and slideshows.

An Autosave option automatically saves your projects at regular intervals, protecting you from disaster. Not by default, unfortunately, as it’s disabled, but clicking Settings > General Options > Enable Autosave will turn the feature on.

The major practical improvement is 10-15% faster video encoding, but the suite does also offer some extra content with new skins, styles and templates.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 15 is priced at $49.99 ($19.99 upgrade). A trial build runs for up to 30 days, and is compatible with Windows Vista and later.

MKM will also pursue M-Disc partnerships with archival software developers, and OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) in the personal computer and optical disc drive (ODD) markets, including M-Ready® ODD manufacturers.

Initial Verbatim and MKM M-Disc product offerings under this agreement will include the following:

End-users and SMBs*

  • 4.7GB DVD M-Discs

Additionally, Millenniata, Verbatim and MKM have agreed to joint development efforts designed to expand the capabilities and capacities of archival-grade data storage technologies both in terms of longevity and data storage capacity.

“We are excited about such a deep and wide-ranging strategic partnership with Verbatim, a global leader in data storage technologies, and its parent company, Mitsubishi Kagaku Media,” said Paul Brockbank, CEO of Millenniata. “Clearly, the explosive growth in digital content creation at the consumer and enterprise level is continuing to accelerate and we are proud to provide the world’s best technology and media to preserve that critical digital content. We understand how important preserving our most precious data is; so does Verbatim. That is why we are so pleased to be able to partner with Verbatim and MKM to advance the availability of M-Discs in multiple formats, storage size capacities and to create future products together that expand the capacity and longevity even further.”

Millenniata’s patented M-Disc technologies for archival-grade optical Blu-ray discs and DVD disc storage mean that users can record and store data that can last for up to 1,000 years.

“Millenniata has clearly developed outstanding archival-grade, data storage capabilities with its M-Disc-branded technologies,” said Tetsuya Mutsu, President of MKM. “Verbatim is the world’s leading supplier of optical media.

In fact, Millenniata’s patented M-Disc technology has been proven through ISO/IEC 10995/16963 standard longevity tests and is the only data storage solution to withstand rigorous testing by the U.S. Department of Defense. Based upon Millenniata’s extensive laboratory tests, M-Discs have an expected usable lifetime of up to 1,000 years.

YAHOO! FINANCE – “Millenniata Launches M-Disc Blu-ray…”

Thursday, 3 April, 2014

YahooFinance

 

 

 

SALT LAKE CITY

Showing continued growth and market interest from both consumers and enterprises for long-lasting, compliance-ready permanent data storage, Millenniata has introduced its 25 GB Blu-ray M-DiscTM. The M-Disc optical media (DVD and now Blu-ray) is the only storage option to preserve information, photos and videos for hundreds of years. Optical media is the responsible choice because of its unparalleled longevity, broad compatibility, high reliability, energy efficiency and durability against electromagnetic pulses and catastrophes. With the recent Blu-ray Disc Association approval, the M-Disc Blu-ray works in most standard Blu-ray drives and is being shipped to customers as of April 1, 2014.

According to International Data Corporation (IDC), the digital universe is growing at a remarkable pace – doubling about every two years in both the consumer and enterprise segments. Consumers, for instance, take twice the photos/videos per person now than a few years ago and those images are much larger files. For both enterprises and consumers, this increase in file creation and the reality that virtually all storage mediums have a limited life, means that reliable, long-lasting, archival quality storage options are essential..

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • The 25 GB M-Disc Blu-ray retains all of the longevity characteristics of the M-Disc DVD but can store five times the data. The 25 GB Blu-ray M-Disc received certification from the Blu-ray Disc Association in February of this year and is available for purchase immediately at www.mdisc.com.
  • The M-Disc’s data layer is composed of rock-like materials known to last for centuries. By etching into the rock-like data layer, a permanent physical data record is created that is immune to data rot caused by light, heat, humidity and more.
  • M-Disc has competitively priced the Blu-ray M-Disc, making it attractive and affordable to consumers and enterprises alike with a retail price of only $4.50-4.99 per disc based on quantities.
  • The Blu-ray M-Disc is manufactured to industry standards making it compatible with most Blu-ray writers on the market. Please see www.mdisc.com for questions on drive compatibility.

Quote

Paul Brockbank, Millenniata President and CEO:
“Whether you are a business protecting regulated corporate assets, or a parent saving special family photographs, there is a huge need to store, access and save important information and files. All M-Disc products have been created and tested to ensure that they will preserve data for centuries, regardless of the environmental factors at play. We’re thrilled to offer greater capacity through our new 25GB M-Disc Blu-ray, drastically reducing the cost per gigabyte. Millenniata is equally excited that the leading optical disc drive brands and PC brands have adopted the M-technology and will be carrying the M-logo in 2014.”

About Millenniata

Millenniata has become the standard in permanent data storage, creating partnerships with industry leading optical disc drives, PC companies and co-branded optical discs. Millenniata’s patented M-DiscTM technology is the world’s first truly permanent digital archival solution, proven to last centuries. The M-Disc is constructed of inorganic rock-like materials, resistant to light, temperature and humidity. This combination allows information to be written once and read forever.

Acronova Technology Launches Nimbie USB Plus NB21-MBR with M-Disc Compatibility

Monday, 19 August, 2013

The new model of Blu-ray/CD/DVD Autoloader supports M-Disc media to store data over 1,000 years.

 North Brunswick, New Jersey, August 19th, 2013 — Acronova Technology, the leading manufacturer of disc duplicators and publishers, and Yours.co, the developer of M-DISC technology, introduced the new model of Nimbie USB Plus Auto Disc Publisher, NB21-MBR, which supports M-Disc DVD and M-Disc Blu-ray media. With NB21-MBR, data can be automatically written onto multiple M-Disc DVDs and M-Disc Blu-rays and lasted for centuries.

Optical media like DVDs and Blu-rays have been widely used to digitally and permanently store contents. However, the average lifespans of standard DVDs and Blu-rays are limited. The M-Disc utilizes an inorganic rock-like material on the write layer that is extremely resistant to heat, light and humidity, allowing data on M-Discs to last over 1,000 years with the same capacities as DVDs or Blu-rays.

Nimbie USB Plus NB21-MBR is a PC connected disc publisher with 100 disc capacity. With various software programs, Nimbie can automate applications such as duplication, ripping and backup. Equipped with USB 3.0 interface, which allows transfer speed of 5Gbit/s, Nimbie USB Plus is also capable of burning Blu-ray discs two times faster than disc duplicators with USB 2.0 interface. “M-Disc DVD and M-Disc Blu-ray media are perfect for backing up valuable and fixed data,” Jessie Tsai, CTO of Acronova, said. “In combination of Nimbie USB Plus, large amount of valuable contents such as photos or videos can be easily transferred and stored onto M-Discs with a few clicks of a mouse.” He added.
