March 31, 2006: Delkin has released a range of long-life optical media designed for image archiving, which use inert gold in the reflective layer of the disk.
The new Delkin eFilm Gold CD-R and DVD disks have been subjected to accelerated aging tests and offer life spans in excess of 100 years. Delkin’s eFilm Gold CD-R disks have been shown to safely store images for 300 years, while the 4.7GB Archival Gold DVD-R media will safely store images for more than 100 years. Bpoth types feature increased resistance to temperature and humidity, thus preventing oxidation, a common cause of failure in CD media.
The eFilm CD-R disks are available in a variety of quantities and types of packaging. The 10 pack is sold in bulk lots of 100 with plain or inkjet-printable surfaces; a 16 CD-R pack with a ring binder with 10 4-disk pages; a cake box of 25 disks in plain or inkjet-printable and 10 CDs in a 10-sleeve Archive safe plastic box. Delkin’s eFilm DVD-Rs come in 25 or 100 packs and a 16 pack with binder and sleeve and 10-disk Archive case. Costs of CD-Rs can be as low as $1.72 and a DVD starts at $3.50.
