Kodak Proffessional CDs and DVDs Promise to Offer 100-year Life


Kodak's new series of Digital Mastering and Professional Grade CD-Rs and DVD-Rs promise to offer unprecedented quality in sound and images combined with archival life of 100 years or more.

Kodak Digital Mastering Disc

The Kodak Digital Mastering Disc (DMD) becomes the "glass" master for audio studios that use a mastering disc for duplication. The CD-R may also appeal to audiophiles and others who want top quality for storing their music collections. The DVD-R is designed for music videos and movies. The DMDs offer two key advantages over standard discs, according to Kodak.

First, recording quality is unsurpassed for burned discs. Product specifications are among the most stringent in the optical industry and the discs are manufactured and individually inspected to achieve zero surface defects, which can cause "dropout" effects in recorded music, video or images.

Second, they last a lifetime. The proprietary metallic reflective layer resists high temperatures, high humidity and ultraviolet light. This gives the DMD a useful life of 100 years or more with proper care and handling.

The quality of the organic dye used in the new DMD discs also helps them retain digital content longer. These DVD?s use only Mitsubishi?s Azo dye, which has the best properties for digital recording of videos. The CD-R uses Phthalocyanine dye for best audio recording.

In addition to commercial audio and video applications, these professional DMD discs are also expected to be available in music and electronics stores.

KODAK Professional Grade CD-Rs and DVD-Rs

New Kodak Professional Grade CD-Rs and DVD-Rs are also now available for photographers, music studios.

The advanced discs are manufactured using a patented, oxidation-resisting gold metallurgy process. This produces enhanced electrical properties, long archival life, significant reductions in error rates and the fastest write speeds available in archival media, according to Kodak.

The disc?s proprietary reflective surface alloy and high quality dye layer provides quality storage that is far superior to traditional silver discs. Silver discs also can deteriorate quickly when exposed to heat, humidity and ultraviolet light and many last only five years or less.

The firm also offers KODAK Blu-Ray DVDs with approximately 25 GB of storage space and high-definition HD-DVDs with 15 GB capacity.
