Delkin Devices, Inc., manufacturer of quality eFilm memory cards and other innovative products, today introduced the eFilm Archival Gold "300-Year" CD-R. eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's incorporate patented Phthalocyanine (thalo-sy-a-neen) dye and a 24k gold reflective layer into every CD-R. The innovative materials found in eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's make them one of the most reliable storage medium available. Typically CD-R's are known to deteriorate quickly due to Earth's common elements: ultra violet light, heat, and humidity. Using an accelerated aging process to test the longevity of CD-R media, eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's have been shown to safely store your images for more than 300 years.

"Consumers are now taking more pictures than ever with digital cameras," explains Martin Wood, CEO of Delkin Devices, Inc. "Our research has indicated that the number one reason consumers take digital images is to preserve their precious memories. eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's ensure that your precious memories are safe for years to come."

The patented Phthalocyanine dye is the most critical component of the CD-R because it is where your data is stored. Your CD burner creates pits in the dye layer when it burns a CD-R and your digital information is stored in these pits. The Phthalocyanine dye reacts quicker to the writing laser than dyes found in most CD-R's on the market, thus making sharper pit edges and making your CD-R easier to read by CD drives. Compared to Cyanine and Azo dyes found in the majority of CD-R's on the market, Phthalocyanine dye lasts significantly longer when subjected to the harmful effects of UV light, heat, and humidity.

Gold is one of the most inert elements on earth and Delkin incorporates 20¢ of 24k gold into every eFilm Archival Gold disc. Gold's inert characteristics prevent oxidation, a common cause of failure to most CD-Rs. Along with the Phthalocyanine dye and gold reflective layer, eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's provide the most extreme protection for your digital images from environmental degradation.

"People used to save their photos in family albums and store their negatives in a safe place for reprints," says Wood. "In the digital age, people store their photos on their computer. With the volatility of computer hard drives and the constant threat of virus attacks, we wanted to provide consumers with the most reliable storage medium available to back up their images."

Delkin will begin shipping eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's in early October in a variety of quantities and types of packaging. The CD-R 10 Pack will be sold in a protective plastic case that holds 10 CD-R's in polypropylene sleeves. There will be a 1" 3 ring binder available with 16 eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's in protective sleeves. The 25 pack will be available in a cake box type spindle. Delkin also plans to ship 100 CD-R's in bulk packaging. eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's will be available at consumer photography and electronic stores worldwide and online at Delkin's website at www.delkin.com.

"Our eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's will be a perfect companion to our BurnAway as well," explains Alan Parry, Director of Marketing at Delkin Devices, Inc. "The combination will provide consumers with a reliable storage device and medium without the use of a computer." Delkin has released a white paper further discussing the details of CD-R media. You can download the white paper at www.archivalgold.com.

Veste kaj bo čez 300 let takih računalnikov kot jih poznamo danes ne bo nihče pomnil, verjetno bo preteklost tudi že kvantno računalništvo (ki je trenutno znanstvena fantastika). Takrat se bo dobil digitalca za 1 sit in svet bo prenatrpan s fotografijami. Kdo bo pa še rabil 300 let stare slike in predvsem, katera mašina jih bo takrat sploh še brala? :/

To govorijo samo o teoretiki. Ker itak je nemogoče govoriti kaj se bo zgodilo čez 300 let s tehnologijo... če bo na zemlji sploh še kdo živ...

Mislim, da ni bistvo 300 let, ampak to, da bodo podatki na mediju res zdržali nekaj 10 let. Imel sem nekaj CD-jev, ki sem jih zapekel pred 5 leti, pa se jih danes ne da več prebrati. Pa so obljubljali obstojnost 99 let.

Tole je samo marketinški trik kako prodati CD ki naj bi bil obstojnejši, jaz jim nič ne verjamem. CD-ji, ki sem jih posnel pred parimi leti so sedaj popolnoma oluščeni in neberljivi pa naj bi imeli več kot 10 let (ali celo 99 let) garantirane uporabnosti.
