When it comes to optical data storage mediums, Kodak Shop is not a name we can forget. Eastman Kodak Co gained fame as a pioneer in the photography industry but that is not Kodak’s only strength.
Another field this corporate giant excelled in is data storage. Did you know that Kodak was the first player in the industry to introduce photo CD which could hold up to 100+ digitized images?
Good news for us is that Kodak did not stop there. It continued introducing innovative products and hardware to make data storage easier for us. Kodak discs, due to their capacity and writing speed have now become a data storage staple. In this blog, we will take a look at some of the best optical data storage options Kodak shop has to offer:
- Kodak Recordable CDs (CD-R)
Kodak discs are a safe and relatively inexpensive method of storing data. Each disc can store up to 700 MBs of data or 80 minutes of video. Kodak compact discs are a great option for storing data, music, movies and photos. So, if you are wondering where to archive your vacation snaps, try Kodak CDs. The maximum writing speed for Kodak CDs is 52x.
